    Shows how hollow the Trump economy is

    Almost half of Americans work in low-wage jobs

    America's unemployment rate is at a half-century low, but it also has a job-quality problem that affects nearly half the population, with a study finding 44% of U.S. workers are employed in low-wage jobs that pay median annual wages of $18,000.

    Contrary to popular opinion, these workers aren't teenagers or young adults just starting their careers,

    We saw this coming when Trump gave his $1.5 trillion tax cut with a 40 percent cut in Corporate tax rates

    Very little managed to trickle down to the workers

    So it's Trump's fault they don't have enough ambition to better themselves?

    Interesting.

    One question.

    Is that higher, lower, or about the same as previous presidents?

    I can't believe we're getting a lecture on work ethic from a guy who uses the idiot Ed Norton the sewer worker for an avatar.

    Oh come on, as much as I was against the tax cuts, they did not cause this. This is a long time in the making.

    I was looking over the Descriptive statistics and there are some interesting things...

    Low wage workers are making less, plus they are working less. That is a bad combination.

    Can you believe it? During the eight long, long Obama years Americans couldn't even get low paying jobs.

    Yeah, the obummer economy caused millions to lose their full time jobs, and now, thanks to Trump, that terrible situation is being reversed.

    Of course obummer, your hero, had 8 years to fuck this country up. Trump has only had three years to correct that mess.
