What benefits everybody in the country more; government jobs or private sector jobs?

Private sector companies pay for government jobs through taxes. If they didn't have to pay as much in taxes, they could hire more employees and produce more products and charge less for them.

Unless you can name a government job that produces a product . . . waiting . . .

The Army, police, fire fighters, post office, teachers (though they produce the ability of the next generation to exist in the world). Are some government jobs silly?
