They were declining in all of 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and half of 2014.You apparently don't understand RATES of INCREASE. Real wages were INCREASING at a much faster RATE back in 2011-2015 than they have been under Trump.
Again, you could SEE this from the graph. If you could only READ graphs.
Pssst...I didn't support him.
Obama bad, trump good - thats all one needs to know.Once again we see Libertine IDIOTICALLY trying to blame the Great Recession on Barack Obama, when it began in December 2007, more than a YEAR BEFORE he took office. As can CLEARLY be seen from the graph, the huge loss in manufacturing jobs took place DURING the Great Recession, from the end of December 2007 through 2009, and then once recovery began in the labor market in early 2010, we GAINED 930,000 manufacturing jobs by the end of the Obama Administration. This, too, can be EASILY seen in the graph.
Libertine has a terribly hard time reading graphs.
Doesnt look like trump changed anything.I'm not saying Obama is at fault for the recession, just that, as the chart plainly shows, we had fewer manufacturing jobs when Obama left office than we did when Obama took office.
I know you only like to use the good numbers from Obama's and nothing negative, but we saw a net loss of manufacturing jobs under Obama.
UNLIKE Mr. Obama, George W. Bush bears a large measure of BLAME for triggering the Great Recession. He was the Number One Cheerleader for the Great American Housing Bubble of the 2000's.So we should remove the bad numbers from recessions in GWB's record so we can make misleading statements?
No, that wouldn't be truthful.
Yeah, that does NOT give you the same number of 304,000 new jobs that the Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported, does it, genius?
Not to mention Bush passed two tax cuts prior to the crash, and another one was added to the bailout bill in order to get Republicans to vote for it. Neither of the prior cuts did jack shit to help the economy and a lot of companies used the extra cash to relocate their manufacturing to China. Then people were living on credit and viola, the Republican triad of evil (with the help of Joe Biden and a few other conservadems) passed "bankruptcy reform" in 2005 leading to more bankruptcies when their interest rates doubled on their existing balances on their credit card bills.UNLIKE Mr. Obama, George W. Bush bears a large measure of BLAME for triggering the Great Recession. He was the Number One Cheerleader for the Great American Housing Bubble of the 2000's.
The brief six-month recession of 2001 was VERY mild in comparison to the Great Recession. Surely you know that.
Although I shouldn't assume.........
