US Workers See Biggest Salary Increase Since Bush

The Democrats like to claim that they're the party of the working man and woman. Yet all they do is destroy jobs while trying to buy loyalty with freebies leveraged with Chinese debt.

And here's what a real party of workers delivers.

U.S. workers saw the largest increase in wages and benefits since September 2008, according to a new report from the Labor Department on Tuesday.

The employment cost index, a gauge of total compensation for civilian workers, increased 0.6% in the second quarter. The cost of pay and benefits jumped 2.8% in the 12-month period ended in June, the highest yearly growth rate in nearly a decade.

Wages alone gained 2.8% over the past 12 months, which also reflected a near 10-year high.

September 2008. In November, Obama's victory sealed the fate of the economy. Until now.
