Are my math skills rusty?

I just had an occasion to read the following:

"Did you know, in 2006, an estimated 2 million U.S. employees were physically or verbally abused in the workplace? Workplace violence affects one out of every four full-time American workers each year.*"

*Source: Northwestern National Life Insurance

So let me see if I got this correct. 2 million abused, which is 25% of the work force. Therefore, there are 8 million people in the work force in a country of approximately 300 million people?

Unemployment is a huge problem.

I don't think that it's your skills that are rusty. :)
