Wages Under Trump in 2017 are UP, Wages Under Obama in 2016 were DOWN

CNN gave context to the great numbers for the Trump administration that came out Friday.

According to CNN, a new jobs report showed that wages are up under President Trump’s first 6 months in office. During the same timeframe under President Obama in 2016, wages had actually fallen in the United States.

Wages have grown $5.27 per week in 2017, while they fell $0.74 during the same period in 2016.

The wage report is more good news for the president who also enjoyed a reported 209,000 jobs added in an outstanding economic July.
