This just has to stop... We need to Impeach TRUMP.... STAT.... Quick, go get Nancy on the phone!!!

The numbers: The U.S. gained 312,000 new jobs in December, capping off the biggest increase in hiring in three years and showing that second longest economic expansion in U.S. history still has plenty of staying power despite growing worries about a slowdown.

The surge in hiring was the largest since February. Economists surveyed by MarketWatch had forecast a 182,000 increase.

Hiring in November and October was also stronger than originally reported, the government said Friday.

All jobs and progress have been due to the groundwork laid by Great Socialist Paradise Leader Obama and his continuing silent hand at the helm! IMPEACH TRUMP!

Govt. furloughed Rep/Cons can find new jobs & stop living off my tax dollar.

But liberals can keep their cushy government jobs? One thing I can agree with you on is that it takes a conservative mindset to run the private sector. Without the private sector what do we have?

Hmmm, no...

The stock market meltdown is caused by the Dems taking the House. Get it right.

A lot more than what welfare pays.

Actually the US lost 54,000 jobs. +312,000 is the seasonally adjusted figure (i.e. usually we would have lost more jobs in December).

Not poo-pooing the figure, it's a great result.

The average pay is up (more per hour, and more hours worked per week). Good trajectory.

Btw "under employment" after the recession hasn't been a thing since 2011.



Average working hours went above pre-recession levels since 2011.



Average hourly wages grew slightly above inflation with the best real gains in 2015 & 2016.

Where does the idea that people are working more part time jobs or taking worse pay come from?

Trump rocks. It's amazing how some political changes can so quickly improve the economy.

The converse is also true; a political dimwit can fuck up a good economy.

It was depressing in the 70's which are so deeply imprinted on my psyche that I can't spend my money so easily today. I still feel the need to be frugal, it's odd.

The Democrats are only going to make themselves look more idiotic than before, if that were possible, by attacking Trump for continuing to defend Americans, American jobs and the American worker.

Obama was such an underachiever. His 8 years look more ridiculous with every passing quarter.

Wtf did that dude do all day?
