The chance of being fired from a private-sector employer is more than three times as high than being fired from a government job, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
As of May 2014, the latest date available for the BLS data, the layoff and discharge rate in the private sector was seasonally adjusted at 1.3 percent. This is more than three times as high as the layoff and discharge rate in the government of 0.4 percent, seasonally adjusted.
