Several anti-Trump media outlets recently threw in the towel, finally admitting the president’s economic agenda has handed American workers a major victory.
Recent articles by the Washington Post (WaPo) and New York Times finally admit the truth about the robust economy and vibrant jobs market. Since the immediate surge following Pres. Donald J. Trump’s election win, everyday Americans of every creed and color are enjoying job growth. The coup de grâce for the left-leaning media may have been the statistical data that shows wages are rising for the first time in many years.
But if voters think the WaPo and the NY Times would run a straight-up endorsement of the pro-jobs Trump Administration, think again. The reporting sows the seeds of discord as it praises.
“Blue-collar jobs are growing at their fastest rate in more than 30 years, helping fuel a hiring boom in many small towns and rural areas that are strong supporters of President Trump ahead of November’s mid-term elections,” WaPo reports.
It seems only natural the never-Trump WaPo would attribute this surge to only areas that are likely to vote Republican. The biased outlet ran the positive news under a negative headline that states, “Under Trump, the jobs boom has finally reached blue-collar workers. Will it last?”
It’s baffling that these once-impartial news resources do not see the inherent bias in their presentation of tremendous changes in the economy. But, the facts are inescapable. Pres. Trump has created a groundswell of business growth and employment that outpaces anything seen during the last half-century. The WaPo goes on to state:
“Rural employment grew at an annualized rate of 5.1 percent in the first quarter. Smaller metro areas grew 5.0 percent. That’s significantly larger than the 4.1 percent growth seen in large urban areas that recovered earlier from the Great Recession, according to an analysis by the Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program of a separate set of Labor Department data released on Wednesday.”
“In the past year, the economy has added 656,000 blue-collar jobs, compared to 1.7 million added in the services sector. But the rate of growth in blue-collar jobs is speeding up, while service-sector job growth has hovered around 1.3 percent over the past year.”
The New York Times also appears to have given up the fake news fight, at least in terms of the economy. It seems obvious that the booming growth rate has overwhelmed previous attempts to make the failed Obama-era policies appear even remotely better.
Despite former Pres. Obama recently hitting the DNC campaign trail ahead of the mid-terms to take credit for the improved economy, even the New York Times can no longer prop up the façade.
“The headlines for the August job numbers released this morning are nothing but good. Employers added a robust 201,000 jobs, the unemployment rate remained at the rock-bottom level of 3.9 percent, and wages grew the fastest they have in nine years,” The NY Times reports.
“There’s no doubt that this is the best economy in quite a long time for American workers, who by a wide range of measures can find a job more easily than they have in a decade,” The NY Times states.
“But the fact that higher pay raises are finally showing up in the data is another piece of evidence that employers are coming up against the limits of the labor force. Just maybe, after years of trying every recruitment technique other than raising hourly pay, employers are starting to turn more to that option.”
If one didn’t know better, that almost sounds like the NY Times is admitting its editorial staff was wrong about government forcing so-called “living wage” pay raises to $15 per hour or higher. These government-driven policies in West Coast cities have proven disastrous for businesses and workers alike.
Because the current pro-business agenda allows American companies to compete on an even playing field with other countries, companies now compete for workers.
According to Forbes, “There is a talent shortage in America’s blue-collar sectors, and it’s projected only to grow. In manufacturing alone, 57 percent of the 3.5 million jobs that analysts predict will exist by 2025 are expected to go unfilled.”
The business sector publication recently identified the highest paying blue-collar positions. Topping the list were workers handling manual labor tasks at nuclear facilities. They earned upwards of $94,000 annually. The high school education jobs are reportedly clustered in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Illinois. People working in electrical repair saw a 4.33-percent increase in wages, topping out at $77,770. Gas plant, power-line installers and numerous other blue-collar jobs also saw upticks in wages.
Given the vertical economic numbers, Pres. Trump has already engaged a task force to assist workers to renew skills and connect them with employers. Much to the fake news media’s chagrin, the great American worker is winning again.
