According to a recent report by the Social Security Administration, the number of people who received federal disability payments in June surpassed the population of New York City.
The Census reports that the population of New York City is 8,244,910 people. In the month of June, there were 8,733,461 people earning federal disability payments. That number is up from 8,705,185 people that were on the disability list in May.
This increasing number indicates that there are fewer and fewer Americans earning an actual paycheck in the United States. On average there is 1 disabled worker for every 16.3 individuals employed in America.
