Susy I don't know how long its been since you were in the labor market in the USA or what type of work you did. Post retirement, in '17 and '18, I worked a retail job where I encountered people working two jobs and still qualifying for some type of assistance benefits. Yes more people than ever are working in the USA but a large number of them are working at $9 to $ 12 per hour jobs who will never be able to enter the rapidly shrinking middle class.

Yes there is a great economy for the top 10% ,for the majority of the rest of the population ,it is all about further financially sinking each year,

Trump and his cohorts(both parties) gave the top 10% another series of tax breaks this year to add to the deficit=$23 Trillion last week. I agree with your desire to disagree with much of the political discussion on this board, but disagree with your willingness to give Trump any benefit for anything of value being created in the USA.
God bless America AND Mexico

T-rumps tax cut was NOT passed by both parties. It was done under republican controlled houses. Passed the House of Representatives on November 16, 2017 (227–205 AND Passed the Senate on December 2, 2017 (51–49].

THIS was part of the 2018 vote that balanced the power of the House of Reps.

For those who want to see how this stabbed the middle class and poor, and put our debt in a spiral.
