By Sarah Tew/The Washington PostThe use of body armor and bulletproof vests in the U.S. has been on the rise since 2009, according to a new report from the Department of Labor.
In 2018, an average of 6.3 percent of U.K. workers wore body armor or bulletproof vest.
In the U., more than 3 percent of workers wore those items.
And for many, the increase has been driven by the rise in violent crime.
The FBI reports there were 6,200 mass shootings in 2017, compared to just 796 in 2014.
It also found that violent crime rates have been rising for a decade, rising by 4 percent in the year before Trump took office.
The report cites a U.N. study finding that the U and U.A.E. have higher rates of violent crime than the U to the U’s European Union countries.
The U.E.’s rate is 10 times higher.
In the U, there are more than 600,000 violent crime incidents a year, according the report.
