Wage Growth Highest Since 2009 While Dems Rave

While the Dems scream about shrinks and throw their ritual Supreme Court nomination tantrum, life keeps getting better for Americans.

Long-awaited wage growth posted its biggest increase of the economic recovery in August while payroll gains beat expectations and the unemployment rate held near a generational low of 3.9 percent, according to a Bureau of Labor Statistics report Friday.

Average hourly earnings rose 2.9 percent for the month on an annualized basis, while nonfarm payrolls grew by 201,000. Economists surveyed by Reuters had been expecting earnings to rise 2.7 percent, payrolls to increase by 191,000 and the jobless level to decline one-tenth of a point to 3.8 percent.

The wage growth was the highest since April 2009.

Funny how the Trump economy always keeps beating expectations, while the Obama economy always underperformed them.

But you can also see why the Democrats have embraced the table pounding election strategy. With a great economy, their only argument is to scream incoherently about Russian conspiracies, abortion and insanity.
