As a UK person: are you telling me that 1 in 30 people are in the NH... oh. Yeah OK actually probably. Might even be higher.

I don’t get it, could you explain why is good/bad?

I don't think he's saying either, it's just a very high percent of people employed by one organisation, similarly it surprised me as well but then I think how many people I know that work there, I pretty much had the same reaction.

Neither. There are ~60 million people in the UK, I'm surprised that almost 2 million work in the NHS, at least until I think about it. One of my friends is a paramedic, another a care hoke worker. Makes sense.
