    It's important to remember that the the greatest burden on lower income peoples' lives is the tyranny of crime and that's a problem that has to be dealt with everyday. It's easy to judge someone on their accent and therefore it's easy to be stupid. If you listen to people then you'll learn that there's bad and good. To the good we owe our allegiance and to the bad we owe our enmity.

    You see there, that's a bit of commonsense.

    If the ideology of the left wasn't half crazed then perhaps it would appeal more than Trump but he's the guy getting the results. If you didn't try to inflict your stupidity on everyone else and tried, instead, to sort yourself out first - for example behaving according to a decent code of conduct - then you might be worth paying attention to. As it is you're a tedious needy bore.
    There hasn't.
    It is just yet another Trump myth, sold to desperate and yes often very stupid people
    These poor saps would be miles better off under Dems, encouraging them to re skill and retrain, not buying BS fairy tales that they can earn 5 times what a Chinese or Korean or Indian or Mexican can, doing the same unskilled job

    It is what it is. Read the figures and note that the employment rate in the African American community is 94%. I knew African Americans when I was over there and it was the better hold yourself well sort. They were smart people who were my friends, there was bad and good among them - I know this.

    The house pet treatment of "People of Color" by the Dems with all these promises of filling their bowls is insulting. They can fill their own bowls if they get a break and that's what they're getting in this economy. That's what civil rights was about - getting a shot at the hoop not a pat on the head. Trump may be a flashy white guy but he's a player and he's all about the stars and stripes.

    Get a proposal together about training and education that's practical, fits its students and gets results. At the moment education in America seems to be a scam for the most part with pupils spending a few years being precious and pampered brats and decades being triple A rated securities. Laborare ut bonum.

    Employment Situation Summary - Bureau of Labor Statistics

    Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 134,000 in September, compared with an average monthly gain of
    201,000 over the prior 12 months. In September, job gains occurred in professional and business services,
    in health care, and in transportation and warehousing. (See table B-1.)

    Employment in professional and business services increased by 54,000 in September and has risen by 560,000
    over the year.

    Health care employment rose by 26,000 in September. Hospitals added 12,000 jobs, and employment in
    ambulatory health care services continued to trend up (+10,000). Over the year, health care employment has
    increased by 302,000.

    In September, employment in transportation and warehousing rose by 24,000. Job gains occurred in
    warehousing and storage (+8,000) and in couriers and messengers (+5,000). Over the year, employment in
    transportation and warehousing has increased by 174,000.

    Construction employment continued to trend up in September (+23,000). The industry has added 315,000 jobs
    over the past 12 months.

    Employment in manufacturing continued to trend up in September (+18,000), reflecting a gain in durable
    goods industries. Over the year, manufacturing has added 278,000 jobs, with about four-fifths of the gain
    in the durable goods component.

    Within mining, employment in support activities for mining rose by 6,000 over the month and by 53,000 over
    the year.

    Employment in leisure and hospitality was little changed over the month (-17,000). Prior to September,
    employment in the industry had been on a modest upward trend. Some of the weakness in this industry in
    September may reflect the impact of Hurricane Florence.

    Employment showed little or no change over the month in other major industries, including wholesale trade,
    retail trade, information, financial activities, and government.

    The average workweek for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls remained unchanged at 34.5 hours in
    September. In manufacturing, the workweek edged down by 0.1 hour to 40.8 hours, and overtime edged down by
    0.1 hour to 3.4 hours. The average workweek for production and nonsupervisory employees on private nonfarm
    payrolls was unchanged at 33.7 hours. (See tables B-2 and B-7.)

    In September, average hourly earnings for all employees on private nonfarm payrolls rose by 8 cents to
    $27.24. Over the year, average hourly earnings have increased by 73 cents, or 2.8 percent. Average hourly
    earnings of private-sector production and nonsupervisory employees increased by 6 cents to $22.81 in
    September. (See tables B-3 and B-8.)

    The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for July was revised up from +147,000 to +165,000, and the
    change for August was revised up from +201,000 to +270,000. With these revisions, employment gains in July
    and August combined were 87,000 more than previously reported. (Monthly revisions result from additional
    reports received from businesses and government agencies since the last published estimates and from the
    recalculation of seasonal factors.) After revisions, job gains have averaged 190,000 per month over the
    last 3 months.

    What an absolute waste of a post
    No one disputes unemployment in America has fallen dramatically in recent years

    But there is no wage growth, none, zero.
    The figures you quote are correct but meaningless if wages don't exceed CPI, and they don't.
    WTF is a poxy year on year wage increase of 2.8% matter if CPI is almost 3%
    It's all a con job, a classic globalist economy that Trump followers supposedly deride.
    wage salves making mega corporations trillion dollar companies with 100s of billions of idle cash and paying ****************************** all tax.
    Exactly the crap he rails against at his rallies and gets swallowed up, but it is exactly the economy he presides over.

    Even loud mouth arch capitalist Jim Cramer on CNBC said that it is utterly immoral to have a so called economic boom in which average workers aren't a cent better off.
    And now that we may (and I stress may) have the start of a cooling off, what happens the tens of millions of workers who never got a cent out of an economic boom that Trump has called "the greatest economic boom in history"?
    Let me tell you what will happen, the scum of the earth in the GOP will start taking a knife to social welfare and healthcare, to ensure these who got fabulously wealthy in the 9 year boom, don't suffer.
    Lindsay and Mitch and all the other old farts will suddenly put on their "fiscally responsible GOP " hats again.

    Raising interest rates based on conditions at hand, is the right medicine for the country's welfare.
    But Trump doesn't care about the country, he cares about Trump, he will try to keep pumping it with cheap money and tax cuts and hope it all doesn't go tits by 2020.

    Project Veritas in undercover recording of Bredesen staffers in Tennessee senate campaign. One says he's only saying he would have voted for Kavanaugh but "he wouldnt he's just saying that" and that people in Tennessee are "ignorant". Shows the cynicism of his campaign and the fake-moderation designed to appeal to swing voters.
