That isn't true, real household median incomes are growing as are real wages, inflation is taken into account and they are still rising.Look, Lib. Employment is a good thing, okay. No one is disagreeing and I'll repeat---GOOD FOR TRUMP. If you really want the truth here it is. We've had almost 10 years of U.S. economic growth, the unemployment rate is at a 30-year low. Hooray! So if you want bragging rights to Donald Trump's job rate success--go for it. The problem is your ongoing "hits" on the Obama administration. You can't compare the two economies. Period. All we need to know is that 10 years of economic growth is good for Americans......well....until it's not.
There is a dark side to today's low unemployment rate. Wages are stagnant. Technology is getting ahead of us. Healthcare, food, and housing prices are out of control. Our expenses are growing faster than our income. Inflation is here (we just don't notice it) and the gap between wages and costs is not closing. Interest rates (mortgages) are up and are expected to hit 5% this year. 50% of Americans have no savings at all--no retirement plans---and live hand to mouth. The government shutdown certainly didn't help.
Then there's the difficulty in hiring. It's harder for employers to attract the right kind of people. Companies are seeing "walk-aways" & candidates are just "disappearing" in the interview process because they see so many other opportunities available.
Don't get me wrong. I'm all for JOBS--just like everyone else, but this is not all rainbows and roses.
