The economy is the second most important issue for registered voters as the midterm election nears, a new Gallup Poll says. And there was very good economic news on Friday, as the Labor Department's Bureau of Labor Statistics rolled out the October employment report – the final one before next week's midterm election.
The number of employed Americans has never been higher. The 156,562,000 Americans employed in October is the twefth record set under President Donald Trump.
In October, the number of employed men age 20 and up – 80,405,000 – set the 12th record since Trump took office; and likewise, for the 12th time, the number of employed women age 20 and up set a record, reaching 70,909,000 in October.
Illegal immigration is up "legal" illegal immigration is up BUT TRUMP SAID ROCKS ARE BULLETS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The only thing that will convert me to Trump is if he orders the army to open fire on any and all of the Caravan that steps food on US soil. He won't do that, despite how legal it is. He won't do that, despite his best fucking friend Benny Netty doing that daily in Palestine as he squats on land the jews are illegally occupying behind US backing.
I wonder if this could be because the US population has never been higher…? Nah!
"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics."
Thanks Obama! -Donald J. Trump
why is only half the country employed
Obama: "Jobs are not coming back." Trump: *brings jobs back. Obama: "It is all thanks to me."
obama and Trump are the same tbh
the other half is kids and overweight burgerfucks.
Obama: *kills jobs Trump: *brings them back Totally the same obviously. /sarcasm/
Jobs during Trump's first 21 months: 4,054,000
Jobs created during Obama's last 21 months: 4,477,000
Though unemployment has fallen, job growth has not actually accelerated. In the first 21 months of Trump’s tenure, the economy added fewer jobs than it did in the previous 21 months.
For a long time, he took credit for the rising stock market. But the Dow fell by 5.1 percent last month, and the S&P 500 dropped 6.9 percent — making it, The Wall Street Journal noted, “the worst October for the S&P 500 since 2008.”
The stock market is still well above the level on Election Day 2016, with the S&P 500 up by 27 percent. But that index rose by 35 percent over the same period in Obama’s first term.
there is no cure for your level of delusion. enjoy 6 more years of trump and a massive red tidal wave. you have no one to blame but yourself.
not that poster, but seriously, what is it you don't like about facts?
truly depressing when half your poopulation is unemployed and you celebrate it as american exceltionalism
you must be too young to understand things. do you expect every person to be able-bodied? do you expect nobody ever stays home to raise a family? do you realize that old and sick and retired people exist? do you realize that children are a real thing?
Not that poster, but seriously, why do you so blindly believe those charts?
because of all the available data that they were made from. are you implying that every city/state/town in america has been keeping false records? that this is somehow a country-wide conspiracy that every elected official who ever worked in any city has been able to co-ordinate and keep secret with everyone else? idiot.
You forget where you are? This is tin foil hat country.
