Sleepy Joe Biden Is Crushing Workers’ Wages

 

When you look at real wages of workers, you will see that real wage growth was terrific under Trump 45, probably the best in the history of the world. I call it the MAGA-zone. The economy was in the MAGA-zone. Contrast that with Sleepy Joe Biden, who has crushed the real wages of working Americans. He is the worst president ever and a total disaster.

    Trump helped Americans. The Demo☭rats couldn’t let that stand.

    I really like your use of the Hammer and Sickle.  It is very appropriate.

    You think that might increase membership?

    Thanks. Borrowed the idea from someone else who was quoted here on Ricochet.

    Real wages are back to exactly where they were in Q2 of 2019

    3-2-1 . . . The “transition” is Trump’s fault.

    I think it would increase the danger of airborne debris from head explosions. That might actually cut into the membership numbers.

    But it’d be worth it. Do it, Mr. DJT.

    Remember when the Three Martini Lunch did the bit where Trump bought NRO.  Good times.  Sadly it wasnt true.

     Let’s all hope that  we the working stiffs of America understand what the Democrats are doing to them.

    It’s the biggest drop in productivity since 1948. I think what that means is, people have to get two jobs to survive (thus, you have, ostensibly, a good jobs report) and the inflation is killing business. Put that together and that is RECORD plunging productivity. 

     

     

    Obviously we need more central planning because we haven’t done enough.

    Explain to me how wages fell from +4% to -1% on inauguration day.  The second biggest change on the graph, all in one week? 

    One doubts.

    Also, looking at the biggest change, how did average weekly earnings zoom from +1% to +7% just as the country was being shut down in March 2020?

    One doubts again.

    Maybe because Biden signed Executive Orders shutting down the Keystone Pipeline etc, on Day One?

    People like to claim that energy prices were already rising before Biden’s inauguration too, so it wasn’t really his fault.  But they are often based on futures markets, and they started rising after Election Day.
