    Default New Jobs Report

    U.S. economy gains a strong 222,000 jobs in June - Jul. 7, 2017

    The U.S. economy added 222,000 jobs in June, much more than economists were expecting, the Labor Department said Friday.
    The unemployment rate rose slightly to 4.4%, hovering just above its lowest level since 2001. Shortly after the Great Recession ended in 2009, unemployment peaked at 10%.
    June was the 81st consecutive month of job gains.
    Wages grew 2.5% in June compared with a year ago. That's slightly better than in prior years but well below the goal of 3.5% set by the Federal Reserve. Wages are one of the last indicators to really pick up momentum since the recession ended in 2009.

    I wonder if that number includes the jobs from Carrier that headed to Mexico?

    Just stating facts that our President hopes no one is paying attention.

    Where's the high fives for Obama? Are you using Trump's math in this equation?

    No high fives for that former president.. IMO and I know you will disagree with me but he was the worst president in history.. He even made Carter look good.. The economy is starting to come along but you are still in denial cause you dislike Trump..

    Can't quite understand why this should be considered any better then what has happened for the past 81 months.
    According to many, they were all lies. If I had the time, I would research the threads and find the posts, but I can't be bothered.
    I remember all so clearly ...
    It's all lies from Obama's government ... they manipulate the numbers ... all low paying jobs ... the economy sucks ...

    OK, the shoes on the other foot now. Why are things so different now ?

    Really they are not. But I am interested in hearing why some people feel things have changed.

    The big difference is with the last administration you had "Hope and change" which never happened and now you have "Make America Great Again" and it is actually proceeding.. But for some they will never admit it because they do not want to believe it..

    My exact thought as I read the first post in this thread.
