Is IT your POINT that the historically LOW unemployment FIGURES (the topic) is a BAD thing???

I doubt that instances of replacing a person counts as a new job.

 

However, isn't it nice that President Trump did find his "magic wand" and we are not living with what Obama considered "the new normal"?

It sounds like you are saying that our revitalized economy and historically low unemployment is not a good thing.

 

LBJ grew Nam enormously (big cost) - no comparison here. Plus putting young men in uniform and sending them off to the jungle is not a great "employment creator" - Trump has them working in the private sector, much better.

Nope ..... But President Obama deserves a "Thank You" for saving our country from the devastating Republican recession he inherited. And of course, another "Thank You" for the most successful economy he handed off to Trump who now rides on the coat tails of President Obama's expanding economy!

DUMP TRUMP AND DITCH MITCH TO MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!!!

U.S. Adds 196,000 Jobs in March, a Return to Solid Growth

After a lackluster performance in February, the job market bounced back in March. February’s number of new jobs was also revised upward, to 33,000 from 20,000.

  • April 5, 

The buoyant jobs market that has helped sustain American households for the better part of a decade did not go anywhere.

After an unexpectedly weak February — just 20,000 new jobs were initially reported — concerns arose that the remarkable wave of hiring might be ebbing. But employment surged again last month, beating the expectations of most economists with 196,000 new jobs, the Labor Department said Friday.

Even lowly February looked better: The department revised its report upward to 33,000 jobs. And unemployment remained at 3.8 percent in March, while wage growth kept its momentum, ensuring that pay is growing faster than inflation.

"wage growth kept its momentum, ensuring that pay is growing faster than inflation"

 

More good news.
