My very pro President Trump boss is not happy.

For the first time in 13 years our employees are finding jobs in the area that pay more and are leaving or asking the boss if he will match the pay. Most of these people have been making $10 or $11 dollars an hour for years but with the growing economy they have the power to move on.

We also have a part time crew who now are full time with health insurance.

Viva! Trump!

And our business is up 15% or more, we are hauling a hell of a lot of heavy equipment all over the Northeast and as far as the Midwest.

3. It's not Obama, it's something else that starts with "O" that people haven't felt in over 8 years

Optimism.

4. Obama certainly deserves credit

 

Just the fact that he is no longer in office has been a huge boon to the economy.

10. The economy goes up and down.

Sometimes a President is lucky and hits it going up. But my boss is now forced to do something that was never on his radar over the last 13 years and that's to increase wages. President Obama was a great help to Wall Street and the banks after Bush but main street and wages went down and stayed down.

Wall or no wall. If President Trump can get the middle class moving up in income he's won.

13. He'll get credit if the trends continue. He will be blamed if things change.

15. Apparently we were all in soup lines and living by the railroad tracks for the last 8 years

 

under Obama.

But now in just 74 or 75 days, Trump has done_______ !1!1!1 (something?)


The sad thing is that many poor deluded people here actually believe that.

7. This time last year

 

We were wondering if my shop was going to be able to keep the doors open.
Now we have more work than we can handle and are sending some of it out to other shops, with no end in sight.

11. The plural of anecdote is not data.

Trump said all during the campaign that Obama's good results were fake. Now the very same reports are to be taken as gospel. Historical data makes it pretty clear that he is just riding the wave of the Obama recovery. Not even the idiot Trump can derail the economy in just two months.

14. Yes.

And those were $10 an hour part time jobs. Selling beer at Dodger Stadium, on the floor at Target, Starbucks, life guard at the YMCA. These are the jobs are college grad kids have been doing for the last 6 years. People can't live on $250.00 a week.

16. I quit my old job early in March...

Went on vacation for 2 weeks and started my job search. Got many offers and started this week with the one that doubled my salary. Doing the same job.
There are a lot of good paying jobs available right now and it's a seller's market. In my field (electrician) there aren't enough people with the proper schooling that is required for the higher paying jobs. And I'm talking about a two year degree.You need to invest in your own future before you before you can make a decent living for yourself and family.
