Weekly Jobless Numbers Hit 5 Month LOW

President Trump’s economy is continuing to show strong indicators. New numbers show that the weekly jobless numbers hit a 5 month low.

According to The Hill:

The number of Americans submitting applications for unemployment benefits fell to a five-month low last week, the Labor Department announced Thursday.

Initial filings for benefits fell to a seasonally adjusted 204,000 for the week ending on Sept. 7, down 15,000.

That marks the lowest level since April, the department said, and the largest single week drop in claims since May.

The four-week moving average of initial claims, which irons out week-to-week volatility, like Labor Day being last week, fell 4,250 to 212,500 last week.

The Democrats push recession but this shows that the labor market is strong.

America needed a business man…not another on-the-take politician. President Trump says it s it is. He speaks from the heart. Politicians will say anything to get the vote, but will use your vote to benefit themselves. I trust President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the World Trade Organization. If it is costing America, but not benefiting America, why support it?

Not to pee on anyones parade but this is normal fro this time of year, harvest in full swing and stores stocking and hiring for the holiday season. September and October are always months where there are large job increases, so nothing to ring a bell about here.

Did you just wake from a very long nap, the Unemployment rate is the lowest in 50 Years, the Welfare Rolls are the lowest in decades and these numbers are especially true in both the Black and Hispanic communities. The harvest and Christmas shopping has nothing to do with the grouth in the Economy.

That being so, how about publishing the comparable data for the eight years Our Historic Organizer was benefiting from this boom-time? Were there harvests and holiday seasons then? Hello? Hello? Operator, is there a problem with this connection? HELLO!?

To illiterate cynic Robert Webster….
The numbers reflect a threefold norm for this seasonal surge….vs the last 12 years.
There are more jobs than eligible people for the first time…. ever.
Pull your head out… congratulate our President and this nation’s success…. and TRY acting like an appreciative American.
GO TRUMP!

The numbers we have been seeing are way better than any numbers coming from a socialist administrstion. Just keep watching and the numbers will continue to improve. Your problem is your peeing against the wind.

When are you going to figure out that more jobs isn’t all this country needs. You keep telling us that you’ve gotten rid of obamacare but I know you’ve not. Want to know how I know? From personal experience. My husband has COPD and the doctor prescribed the Trilegy inhaler for him but the insurance company made him change it because they weren’t going to cover it. They insisted that he have something cheaper. That’s someone other ourselves and our doctors making our medical decisions for us. That’s obamacare. This is an unconstitutional law that is still on the books and still in use. Stop lying to us about it and get rid of it.
