Times are tough for state and local governments, and their overall employment level is down nearly half a million in the last three years, according to Stateline.org. But government employment actually has increased in some states. At opposite ends of the spectrum are Wyoming, where the government workforce grew by 11.3 percent, and Nevada, which cut employment 8.3 percent.
