The economy is booming so much that 1,000 new truck drivers are needed immediately! In total, we are 51,000 short on truck drivers!

There are more vacant jobs than there are official unemployed people.

That's a good problem to have. It's called winning. Thank you, President Trump!

Unemployment has been steadily falling since 2015 and continues to do so. The main factor appears to be people regaining confidence that they will get a job.. but many of those jobs don't pay much.

The unemployment rate rose to a seasonally adjusted 4.0% in June, while wage growth remained modest

"while wage growth remained modest"

Wages grew at about 2.7% over the year..or about $.72 per hour average. That's about $28 per week and $123 per month.

On top of that, almost everyone got a tax cut...which means more of what they earned wound up in THEIR pockets.

Good job President Trump!

Inflation is outstripping wage gains for a sum total LOSS to all but the richest consumers.

A good economy has a marginal inflation rate. Inflation is currently at 1.72%. A healthy inflation rate is 2 to 3%.
