As reported at CNBC, And the jobs keep on coming … Bloomberg reports that the jobless rate held at 4.1 percent, matching the lowest since 2000, while average hourly earnings rose a more-than-expected 2.9 percent from a year earlier, the most since June 2009.

Nonfarm payrolls grew by 200,000 in January and the unemployment rate was 4.1 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics said in a closely watched report from Friday.

Economists surveyed by Reuters had been expecting jobs growth of 180,000 and an unemployment rate of 4.1 percent. A broader measure of unemployment that includes discouraged workers and those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons edged higher to 8.2 percent, the highest level since September.

In addition to the solid payroll growth, average hourly earnings were up 0.3 percent for the month, matching estimates and reflecting an annualized gain of 2.9 percent. However, the average work week fell two-tenths to 34.3 hours.

2018 State of the Union Speech … President Trump States African American Unemployment Stands at the Lowest Rate Ever Recorded and Black Caucus Disgracefully Sits (VIDEO)

JUST HOW SCARED OF PRESIDENT TRUMP ARE BLACK POLITICIANS AND DEMOCRATS … HE IS PUTTING BLACK AMERICA BACK TO WORK AGAIN.

President Donald Trump is helping Make America Great Again for everyone. Trump’s economic visions does not discriminate. However, sadly the race-baitors in Washington, DC who would rather see their constituents continue to struggle, rather than Trump’s plan work. Fortunately that is not the case and Democrats look very petty and small.

sotu-2018 29 black caucus

Last night during President Donald Trump’s first State of the Union address, he provided a list of amazing economic accomplishments from his first year in Office, none more remarkable that black unemployment being at an all-time recorded low. President Trump stated, “And something I am very proud of, African-American unemployment stands at the lowest rate ever recorded.”

BLS_ black unemployment

The reaction from the Democrat black caucus, crickets. Not one individual stood, of those that actually attended the SOTU. One individual, just one actually bothered to clap. UNBELIEVABLE. They could have cared less. This is leadership? Do you think this would have been the reaction to Barack Obama or Bill Clinton? Of course not.  As stated at PJ Media, “Indeed, black unemployment reached a record low under President Trump. The fact that these black congressional leaders hold their hatred for Trump more precious than their celebration of success for their own community is telling.” These people are petrified that Trump is making inroads into the black community by taking them off the dependency of government welfare and providing them well-paying jobs. In the 2016 Trump received 8% of the black vote after being called a racist and white supremacist. That was dramatically up from 2012 and 2008. Look for the Democrats, LEFT’s, media’s and Congressional black caucuses worst nightmare to come true in 2020 … Trump will get double digits of black vote and break that Democrat wall too.

Fox News Poll: President Trump’s Economy … Record Number Rate Economy ‘Excellent’

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN …

A recent Fox News poll shows that the President Donald Trump economy is being rated positively by voters at its highest rate in nearly two decades. The economic policies that Trump has put in place are working. 40% of Americans stated that the Trump administration has made the economy better. Jobs are being created, the stock market is at record highs, unemployment is down, black unemployment at historic lows, businesses are giving employees bonuses due to the Trump tax cuts and most Americans have not even begun to see the benefits of the Trump tax cuts.

Donald Trump thumbs up

A Fox News Poll conducted at the end of President Trump’s first year in the White House finds more voters rate the economy positively today than have in nearly two decades.

And they give the White House credit for that:  nearly twice as many say the Trump administration has made the economy better than made it worse: 40 percent vs. 22 percent.  One-third says the administration has not made a difference (34 percent).

Approval of the job the president is doing on the economy is above 50 percent for the first time.

Weekly Jobless Claims in U.S. Plunge to Lowest Since 1973

DONALD TRUMP: MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN ….

From Bloomberg News, The filings for unemployment benefits in the United States have fallen to the lowest level in almost 45 years. That is correct, the lowest since 1973.  What does this mean? Coupled with job growth, a soaring stock market, low unemployment and the Trump tax cuts … the US economy is on fire!!! Wake up America and start giving credit where credit is due, the economy has rebounded like this in one year because of the presidential election of Donald Trump.

jOBLESS rATE_011318

U.S. filings for unemployment benefits plummeted to the lowest level in almost 45 years in a sign the job market will tighten further in 2018, Labor Department figures showed Thursday.

Key Takeaways

The drop in claims shows that companies are increasingly holding on to their employees amid a shortage of skilled labor. Businesses are struggling to find workers to fill positions, particularly in manufacturing and construction, as cited in some anecdotes for the Federal Reserve’s Beige Book released Wednesday.

The figures suggest the unemployment rate of 4.1 percent, already the lowest since 2000, could be poised to decline further. The latest week for claims includes the 12th of the month, which is the reference period for the Labor Department’s monthly employment surveys.

Black Unemployment Rate Falls to Record Low to 6.8%

MAKING AMERICA GREAT AGAIN FOR BLACKS AND JOBS …

As reported at CNBC, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that black workers had a 6.8 percent unemployment rate in December, the lowest in the 45 years the data has been tracked. This is HUGE!!! When President Donald Trump said he was going to “Make America Great Again,” he meant it for all Americans. The economy is now benefiting all Americans, including blacks. This is the Democrats worst nightmare. Who can blacks thank for this lowest ever unemployment? Donald Trump of course. It was not Barack Obama who created jobs for blacks, Obama actually failed blacks. It is actually Trump who will be better for blacks. Liberals and Democrats heads are spinning. Now the real question is, will blacks reward Trump for his amazing job in the 2020 elections? In 2016 Trump got 8% of the black vote,which was up from 2012 and 2008. If Trump gets double digit black votes, Democrats will lose their lock on this demographic forever.

Hat Making America GreAT again

Unemployment among black workers is at its lowest since at least the early 1970s, when the government began tracking the data.

The black unemployment rate of 6.8 percent in December was the lowest since the Bureau of Labor Statistics started tracking it in 1972, a year in which the rate ranged from 11.2 percent to 9.4 percent. In the 45 years the data has been tracked, the unemployment rate for black or African-American workers aged 16 years and older has never fallen below 7 percent.

With all the negative race-baiting by the LEFT, Democrats and the media and hateful rhetoric against Donald Trump, who is it that has been putting them back to work?
