In the New Economics: Fast-Food Factories?: "Is cooking a hamburger patty and inserting the meat, lettuce and ketchup inside a bun a manufacturing job, like assembling automobiles?
That question is posed in the new Economic Report of the President, a thick annual compendium of observations and statistics on the health of the United States economy.
The latest edition, sent to Congress last week, questions whether fast-food restaurants should continue to be counted as part of the service sector or should be reclassified as manufacturers. No answers were offered."

Wanna know why they're considering this? Every time someone has to get a 15 hour a week job flipping burgers, it would be considered a new job in the manufacturing sector. Hooray for Bush, adding jobs to the manufacturing sector.

That's the Republicans for you. Once again, they just want to change the rules to make themselves look good.
