Want to know another reason why the federal government hates Donald Trump so much? Because the President has been doing what so few presidents before him could – trimming the bloated federal government fat to the tune of 24,000 fewer jobs since he took office just 18 months earlier even as private-sector job growth continues to rise to its highest levels in a generation.
That is remarkable, especially when compared to the Obama and Bush years when private sector job growth was stagnant while taxpayer-funded federal jobs increased by more than 20%.
Trump Has Cut Federal Payroll by 24,000 Jobs
The federal government cut 3,000 jobs in May and federal employment has now dropped by 24,000 since President Donald Trump took office, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
Even as federal government jobs were declining, overall employment was increasing…
You sure didn’t hear these kinds of stories during the Obama era. After less than two years on the job, President Trump has created an economy where cities are actually offering up to $5000 PER WORKER to incentivize people to move there to fill job vacancies.
Hello? Mainstream Media? Where are all the feel-good stories about this remarkable economic transformation that is benefiting so many Americans?
HAMILTON, Ohio—Jobs at the paper mills and safe manufacturers on this stretch of the Great Miami River mostly dried up by the early 2000s, leaving behind closed factories and an abandoned downtown.
Today, a spruced-up waterfront, loft apartments and help-wanted signs give the appearance of economic renewal. All that’s missing are workers—and that has prompted a novel experiment.
Relocate to Hamilton and the city promises $5,000 to help pay student loans. Pack up for Grant County, Ind., and claim $5,000 toward buying a home. Settle in North Platte, Neb., and the chamber of commerce will hold a ceremony in your honor to present an even bigger check.
In this new phase of the U.S. economy, one marked by a shortage of workers rather than jobs, civic leaders in Hamilton and elsewhere are asking themselves: Why not pay people to move here?
The idea has spread where a strong economy, an aging population and an exodus of younger workers have triggered severe labor shortages—often places with very low unemployment rates and higher-than-average wage growth. That’s why small towns across America, instead of offering incentives to employers, such as Amazon.com Inc., are giving it to workers—one by one.
Mike Allgrunn, an economist at the University of South Dakota, calls the financial incentives “a modern-day Homestead Act,” referring to the 1862 law offering public land to settlers willing to move West. A similar deal now stands in Marne, Iowa, where free parcels are available to people who move there.
A great video out today – one the Establishment Media will likely be ignoring.
That means it’s up to you to get it out there.
WATCH. SHARE. EDUCATE.
According to the pastor and activist Mark Burns, it’s a done deal.
What great news for the people of Detroit who have been living under the yoke of failed Democrat leadership for so long. Obama shipped those jobs out. Donald Trump is working hard to bring them BACK for the American people.
Wow, wow, and WOW. Not since 1973 has there been as few jobless claims in America as today.
Check it out as told by BLOOMBERG:
HIGHLIGHTS OF JOBLESS CLAIMS (WEEK ENDED OCT. 14)
- Jobless claims decreased by 22k to 222k (est. 240k), the lowest since March 1973
- Period included Columbus Day holiday, giving people one less day to file claims
- Continuing claims fell by 16k to 1.89m in week ended Oct. 7 (data reported with one-week lag)
- Four-week average of initial claims, a less-volatile measure than the weekly figure, dropped to 248,250 from 257,750
The latest period also encompasses the reporting week that the Labor Department surveys for its October employment figures. Claims are at the lowest level in more than four decades, indicating employers have little desire to cut staffing levels amid a shortage of qualified workers.
Open borders kills the American Middle Class and replaces them with millions willing to work for less. That is an undeniable economic truth but one the Establishment media and political class refuse to admit to the American people.
Regulated common-sense immigration is a benefit to all. Open borders immigration is of benefit to corporations demanding cheap labor and politicians wanting to supplement legal voters with illegal ones.
You want to save America? Then it has to be America-first.
