    Jusrt because it says it in your piece does not make it so. You gotta post actual government site numbers with links.

    What you posted is the equivalent to saying...yes it is.

    The July jobs report indicated that US employers added 157,000 jobs on net last month, fewer than economists expected.

    What you have to understand American has lost 8 million manufacturing jobs since Reagan. We are still million upon millions of manufacturing jobs in the hole.

    What you are getting all giddy over is growth in manufacturing jobs.

    37,000 manufacturing jobs added when we are still millions in the hole is not that good of news.

    (CNSNews.com) - The number of jobs in manufacturing has declined by 7,231,000--or 37 percent--since employment in manufacturing peaked in the United States in 1979, according to data published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    SURVIVING THE TRADE WAR

    Central Valley farmers ‘caught in the middle’

    As midterm election looms for crucial races, many feeling the sting from President Trump’s tariffs
    By Casey Tolan ctolan@bayareanewsgroup.com

    Nervous walnut farmers watch the price of their crops drop by the day. Dairymen worry about delayed shipments as tariffs mount. Orange sellers fret about their fruit spoiling while it waits for inspections at Chinese ports. As harvest season fast approaches in the Central Valley, farmers are feeling the pinch from President Donald Trump’s trade War — injecting a new issue into crucial congressional races up and down the region and stoking fears among Republicans that it could hurt them in November.
    Trump has levied tariffs on a host of products from around the world, and countries such as China, India, Mexico and Canada have responded by targeting U.S. farmers, slapping their own taxes on imports from America’s breadbasket. That makes U.S. crops more expensive overseas, reducing demand and cutting into farmers’ bottom lines. California is in the cross-hairs: In 2016, the Golden State exported just over $2 billion in agricultural products to China, with the largest exports being pistachios, almonds, wine, oranges and dairy, according to the California Department of Food and Agriculture. All of those crops have a large presence in the Valley. Some farmers are fuming as agriculture markets are shaken by the disputes. “This seems to be a game of ‘I dare you’ from the White House, without a strategic plan,” said Mark McAfee, a dairy farmer in Fresno, registered Democrat and ‘California Farmers Union board member. “We’re caught in the middle.” . The administration has proposed $12 billion in aid for farms affected by the trade dispute, including direct payments to farmers and a program to purchase surplus crops. But the U.S. Department of Agriculture has said the payments would be targeted for soybeans, corn, wheat, and other crops that are more common in the Midwest, not “specialty” crops such as from the almond and citrus trees that line vast swaths of the Valley. Trump has urged farmers to be patient, saying his aggressive approach on trade is necessary to win American exports a better deal — a stance many farmers sympathize with. “Our farmers are true patriots,” Trump declared at a rally in Tampa, Florida, on Tuesday. “You know what our farmers are saying? ‘It’s OK, we can take it.’ ” But Republican members of Congress from the Valley, several of whom are facing tough re-election races, are walking a tightrope: raising concerns about the tariffs’ impact and pushing for more aid while avoiding any real criticism of the president, who’s still deeply popular

    Minimum wages rise, but gains fade
    Economists cite more part-time work, high turnover, as reasons for low-paying jobs

    By Abha Bhattarai The Washington Post August 6, 2018 Abhattarai@Washingtonpost.com

    James Collins has been working at Walmart for six years. His pay: $11 an hour, the same as what a new hire would make on their first day of work. Collins, a 65-year-old maintenance worker at a Dallas store, joined the company when the starting hourly wage was $8. Over the years, Walmart has steadily raised that rate, in part to attract workers in a tightening labor market. But data show that pay for longer-term workers like Collins has remained stubbornly stagnant. “There’s no appreciation for experience anymore,” Collins said. “Someone could walk off the street today and get paid the same as me.” Retailers have made headlines for raising their minimum hourly wages in quick succession — CVS to $11, Costco to $13, Target to $15 by 2020 — while 29 states and the District of Columbia now require that employers pay more than the federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour. But economists say those gains have not translated to higher wages among mid-level workers. The average hourly wage paid to retail workers dropped to $18.58 in June, from $18.65 a month earlier, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. (Year over year, the average hourly retail wage has risen 2 percent, from $18.15.) “Poor wage growth has persisted even

    Jan-July 2016 less than 1 million new jobs.
    Jan-July 2018 more than 1.5 million new jobs.

    How is that being behind?

    Trump has created more jobs since he took office than Obama did in his first five years.
