    New data Friday suggested an answer: It is here, and it is now.

    Average hourly earnings jumped 2.9% in January from a year earlier, the Labor Department said Friday, the latest sign that the long, slow, economic recovery is at last reaching Americans pocketbooks."

    After all the whining about how the bonuses are just "crumbs" now we see that wages are finally rising, too.

    Let the good times roll! Yeah, baby!

    Just think Democrats opposed the law that allowed these increases to occur..

    Of course, some of the Trump Haters will still complain that they are not going up fast enough...
    And yet trump remains an idiot, and a criminal, and an embarrassment to all true Americans.
