    I do. You can disagree if you want to but that's my view.

    he's quoting facts. You're speculating about the future. There's a big difference.

    While that is true the causation is not economics.

    The difference between me and Jack the Ripper would be of degrees, as both of us deserved hell and judgement!

    US Added Strong 200K Jobs in January; Pay Up Most in 8 Years

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added a robust 200,000 jobs in January, and wages rose at the fastest pace in more than eight years, evidence of a consistently healthy job market. The unemployment rate remained 4.1 percent, the lowest level since 2000, the Labor Department said in its monthly jobs report Friday.

    The pay gains suggest that employers are increasingly competing for a limited pool of workers. Raises stemming from Republican tax cuts and minimum wage increases in 18 states also likely boosted pay last month. The figures point to an economy on strong footing even in its ninth year of expansion, fueled by consumer spending and global growth.

    Does this look very poorly photo shopped to anyone else or is it just me?

    I saw this scene way back before primary season started--I think it was in Alabama--on TV so I know it is authentic. I think the photo was taken from a screen grab of a video and then overprocessed in Photoshop. It looks way over-sharpened and a bit oversaturated. But I don't think the picture has been materially altered.

    That's what I noticed was how "too sharp" the edges of the people were. It almost looked like a collage.

    Trump's approval just popped to 49%. And the memo is out!

    Year over year (Jan. 2018 vs. Jan. 2017) job growth went DOWN.

    Yep, very slightly. However, subject being discussed was record low unemployment and rising wages. And Trump wasn't President for two-thirds of January 2017.

    Giving you another post of this pic for your effort, though.

    YOU posted a story with a headline that read:
    US Added Strong 200K Jobs in January; Pay Up Most in 8 Years

    Delete your post. You now claim it's off-topic. BOGUS.

    Actually, I quoted a previous post of yours where you questioned the fact that wages were going up. Yes, the 200,000 jobs gain was also part of that headline, but that is not the part of the story I emphasized. I even underlined the relevant part of the story. BTW, I personally do not consider the 200K jobs gain in January as being "strong".


    You're the one that ignored my point about wages going up and posted January 2017 job gains (when Obama was President) vs 2018 job gains.
