An Outstanding Job

An Outstanding Job

In spite of all the political turmoil in Washington, D.C., there was some very good news in the Labor Department’s September 2019 U.S. Jobless Report: Our nation’s unemployment rate has dropped to 3.5 percent! The Labor Department considers, at that level, that we have full employment.

We haven’t seen that low of a figure since 1969. Black unemployment is at a record low of 5.5 percent, plus the Hispanic jobless rate dropped to 3.9 percent. A total of 136,000 new jobs were created. Since the start of 2019, the average American’s wages have increased 2.9 percent.

We have over 7 million jobs waiting to be filled, and fewer folks on welfare and food stamps. The stock market has reached new highs.

When you put all of the above together, I believe President Trump has done an outstanding job! As the former governor of New York, Al Smith, once said, “Let’s look at the record”!
