According to the Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations, in 2009 the United States produced 1,099,300 tonnes of maize oil, or 44.6% of the world’s total maize oil production. That was enough to make the United States rank first in that category.
According to The Workforce Institute, 52% of American workers admit to calling in sick to work when they aren’t really sick. That is enough to make the United States tied for fourth with Canada out of eight countries surveyed. China ranks first, with 71% of employees admitting to faking illness.
