Is it your point that the topic title is wrong, or is jim right?

If you're really rich or really stupid, it's great when NRAGOP is in charge. Everybody else only enjoys the trip if they have no idea where they're being taken - (its "for a ride" brother Fredo)

 


Are you saying that working Americans have not seen an increase in their take home?

 

And again, you have stated specific stats with no substantiation. Considering your record in that regard you really should substantiate.

(CNSNews.com) - The United States added 31,000 manufacturing jobs in February and employment in the manufacturing sector has now increased by 263,000 since December 2016, the last month before President Donald Trump took office.

 

“Manufacturing added 31,000 jobs in February,” the Bureau of Labor Statistics said in its monthly employment reportreleased today. “Within the industry, employment rose in transportation equipment (+8,000), fabricated metal products (+6,000), machinery (+6,000), and primary metals (+4,000).”

 

The last time there were more manufacturing jobs in the United States than there were in February was in December 2008, the last month before President Barack Obama took office. That month, according to BLS, there were 12,850,000 manufacturing jobs. But, in January 2009, the month Obama was inaugurated, manufacturing jobs dropped to 12,561,000—and did not move back above 12,600,000 until last month.

 

 

 

In December 2016, the month before Trump was inaugurated, there were 12,351,000 manufacturing jobs in the United States. Since then, it has climbed by 263,000 to 12,614,000.

 

In January 2017, the month Trump was inaugurated, manufacturing jobs rose to 12,369,000—an increase of 18,000.  In the months since Trump’s inauguration, manufacturing jobs have increased by 245,000.
