Sometimes people get what they vote for, only to find out what they voted for wasn't exactly what they had in mind.

PaintItBlack, that was great post, thank you so much. It reminded me of the guy from Harley Davidson who was laid off after Trump's tariffs came on board. He was asked on national TV if he blamed Trump. We know what his answer was.

Unemployment Rising in Several Trump States

181 Views
Message 14 of 14

In West Virginia, where Trump has promised to bring back coal jobs, the jobless rate continued to rise, hitting 5.4 percent in May, the latest state level data available That’s up four-tenths of a percent from a year earlier.

 

In Michigan, which Trump won by a razor-thin margin in 2016, the unemployment rate stood at 4.6 percent in May, up two tenths of a percent from a year earlier. Unemployment has also risen in the past year in Trump states Alaska, Arkansas and North Dakota.

 

The jobless rate was also higher than the national average in Arizona, Mississippi, Louisiana and Pennsylvania, all states Trump carried in 2016. Economists and other experts have warned that job gains could stall out if a Trump-initiated global trade war continues to widen.

 

On Friday, the White House followed through on a threat to slap higher tariffs on $34 billion worth of Chinese imports. China immediately retaliated with higher duties on U.S. farm products including soybeans. That could pose a threat to job growth in states which voted for Trump that rely heavily on those exports, including Louisiana, Alabama and South Carolina.
