Aronowitz writes: "Another hidden fact: for thirty five years, the 
private sector has not produced a net increase in jobs." It's hidden 
because it is not true. Private sector jobs have gone from 63 to 115 
million. He could have said that private sector "goods producing" jobs 
as measured by the BLS have not increased. However, that excludes 
transportation and utilities, which are among the industries the BLS 
puts in "service providing" versus "goods producing."
