Jobs Report Shows Booming Employment: Dems Call Growth ‘Reckless’

Published

on

Democrat leaders are continuing their hysteria after the June jobs report once again showed record-breaking numbers.

“With slow wage growth, rising health care premiums, and skyrocketing gas prices across the country, Donald Trump’s reckless policies are hurting millions of hardworking families,” said DNC Chair and former Secretary of Labor Tom Perez.

According to the Labor Department’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, 213,000 jobs were added in June. Overall, 155,576,000 people are now employed, which is the tenth record set by the Trump administration in that category. More than 27,000,000 Hispanics were employed in June, and the group’s 4.6% unemployment rate was the lowest it has ever been.

All of this, according to Democrats, is “reckless.” Of course, they call it reckless because if Americans do not have to rely on the government to survive, then the Democrats have no worth or value as a party. This explains Perez’s panicked tone.

“This is all part of the Republican playbook,” he said. “For decades, Republicans and their wealthy corporate allies have been chipping away at workers’ rights, weakening unions, and depressing wages – all while giving massive tax cuts to the top 1%.”

According to the same BLS statistics, wages have actually increased 2.7%, or 72 cents per hour over the course of this year. Perez must have missed that statistic. It also stands to reason that the “top 1%” will indeed receive the bulk of the tax cuts, considering that they pay a bulk of the taxes. It is a simple mathematical truism, and yet another mind-numbingly stupid leftist talking point.

It looks like the Democrats have their playbook in order, too.

“The June #JobsReport shows what is at stake from the brewing storm of rising health costs, spiraling trade uncertainty & an economy being hollowed out to enrich big corporations & the wealthiest 1 percent,” tweeted House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). “Americans deserve better than the GOP’s raw deal.”

By the “top 1 percent,” Pelosi was talking about herself. She has a net worth of $26.4 million on a $175,000 annual salary. She has been a member of the House for many years, but not enough years to amass that much wealth. Where did all her wealth come from?

As usual, coastal elite Democrats have forgotten about middle America. They cannot relate, and do not care to relate, to any of the 266,000 people who will now have a steady paycheck thanks to the emphasis that Trump has placed on jobs during his Presidency.

OUT OUT OUT: Study Shows That Each Illegal Alien is Up to a $6,500-Per-Year Burden for the U.S. Taxpayer

The cost of illegal immigration is massive.

Published

on

A ground-breaking new study has shown that illegal immigrants cost the U.S. taxpayer approximately $6,500 per year by soaking up welfare cash and other government benefits after they break the law to enter the country.

The study, commissioned by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR), showed that that small states are particularly burdened by the illegals, and the money and services are going to aliens instead of veterans, children, and the disabled.

FAIR surveyed ten small states and determined that illegal immigration cost them an average of $454 million per year.

“To put that figure into context, that $454 million expenditure is more than 200 times what the state of Montana budgets for its entire Veterans Affairs program, and it is 2.5 times the total sum that West Virginia invests in its state university,” the report states.

Dan Stein, president of FAIR, notes that the native populations of these small states are getting squeezed the most by the burden caused by illegal immigrants. These individuals are essentially being replaced as a once-great nation transforms into a globalist economic zone.

“In many ways, the influx of immigrants into less populous areas of the country has an even greater impact on long-time residents than it does in larger and more urban areas,” Stein said.

“These areas have neither the tax base, nor the economic and social infrastructure to accommodate the needs of the growing numbers of immigrants taking up residence,” he added.

The FAIR study, Small Migrant Populations, Huge Impacts, analyzed Alaska, West Virginia, South Dakota, Vermont, Wyoming, New Hampshire, Montana, Mississippi, North Dakota and Maine to discover their startling conclusions regarding the costs of illegal immigration.

“Many local officials tout immigration, including illegal immigration, as a remedy to economic stagnation. However, as this report reveals, the reality is precisely the opposite,” Stein said.

“Illegal immigration, in particular, drives down wages and inhibits job opportunities for legal residents, while bringing more low-skilled, low-wage workers to these states. In turn, this increases costs to state and local governments, and discourages investment by businesses seeking a skilled labor force and lower overhead,” he added.

FAIR released the following video to accompany their newly released study:

“This report highlights the fact that the adverse effects of unchecked mass immigration, combined with an immigration selection process that does not choose people based on individual merit, job skills and education, are now being felt in all parts of the country,” Stein explained.

“Americans, in every part of the nation, are being affected by antiquated and unenforced immigration policies, which is why it is at the top of the list of voter concerns heading into the 2020 elections,” he added.
