    Farmers lose their farms and commit suicide.

    Jobs might be up wages still stagnant. Imagine working more than 40 hrs a week and still require government assistance.

  3. Everyone needs at least 2 jobs to pay their rent…does that count? 🙄

    • @Just Me some of the Democrats policies actually work for my parents

    • @Just Me because my mother is a travel nurse and the 2013 and 2014 Democratic tax policy that the Democrats came out with my mother had 10 grand left over out of her tax money

    • @Dae Dotfan19 – I’m sorry but I think you may have accidentally thought I was replying to you. If I’m mistaken can you please update it because I’m having a hard time putting it all together. Also, please tell your Mother thank you for her chosen career.

    • @Just Me 💯

    • @Dae Dotfan19- I’d be even more upset with the government if they didn’t. There was a time, when Democrat’s and Republican’s used to have very productive debates and conversations. Unfortunately in the last five years no matter how many times Republican’s have asked for a debate Democrat’s will no longer participate. I wish we could get back to being American’s rather than Democrat or Republican.

  4. Trump university was a con job too.

  5. Economy is booming they say, yet our wages have stayed the same for years. What ever

  6. What they dont say is that lots of those are christmas temp!

      @Ra H warehouse jobs in the winter are pretty good actually. It’s warm and dry, unlike the trash truck you ride on.

    • Liisa Varhalla hmm excellent point. Thx

      I would say 80% of those numbers are winter hiring and holiday hiring. Tons of state’s hiring, snow plows and road crew’s, tow truck, salt trucks , de-icer drivers winter tourism, ski resorts and hotels and restraunts, shopping store’s, Walmart, UPS, Amazon, Fed ex, grocery stores etc. When you have holloween Thanksgiving black-friday Christmas and new year’s, all in ( 3 months ) hospitals hiring for road related accendents and hospice care and flu and pneumonia colds and all that’s the hospital side of winter hiring for winter. As so many of the elders in winter do hospice care, because ofnthe elements and snow and ice , there is always hospital sector related jobs in the winter hiring….. and As all combined together tons of jobs go on the rise in the winter! The reports are very similar nothing that is dramatically booming as ( new created jobs ) slight upticks….. to better prepare for the winter and holidays . Nothing that is really WOW massive long term jobs….. Winter and holiday season hiring related.

    Damage’s done folks.
    Who can expect Chinese or whoever to buy US stuff anymore !?
    Trust is gone.

    • @Pierre Marie Cordier US farmers can’t sell all their crops due to trade war. Crops will need to be sold at depressed prices or donated.

    • Pierre Marie Cordier | December 7, 2019 at 4:36 PM | Reply

      P Le : Well, then give crops away to countries in need.

    • @Pierre Marie Cordier Agree. American products such as rice do get donated to countries in need.

    • Pierre Marie Cordier | December 7, 2019 at 4:53 PM | Reply

      soylentdean : Why do you think that countries have to buy only from the US ????? Don’t be narrow minded for a change.

    • @Pierre Marie Cordier right. Don’t be narrow minded like trump who thinks he can score quick victory.
      Trump lost the trade war the day he started it.

  8. I love to hear the sad stories of all the people who voted for trump

    • @jdxsr85 Didn’t he reply ‘Corinthians 2’ ?

    • @Ms Mp Lol you need to look up his interview on Bloomberg Politics right here on yt where they ask him to name one verse and he couldn’t.

    • @jdxsr85 in some respect I prefer that he couldn’t, as properly naming one and citing a passage correctly would just increase the belief of his supporters that he is anointed by God.

    • @Ms Mp Many of them will believe that no matter what. Just read Big Red’s comments above to see the level of ignorance and unwillingness to be properly informed on issues regarding the country. Big Red is just one of many gullible fools that fall for Trump’s lies hook, line and sinker.

    • @jdxsr85 ‘When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.’
      Sinclair Lewis.

      Hitler rose to power during economic and political turmoil by using scapegoats to blame it on, and drew his support through the German church. Their congregants too viewed him as ‘anointed by God.’

  9. These are UAW workers and X-mas temps like has been said. I’m just bumping with UAW that people forget. They were on strike during the last job numbers report, therefore unemployed. Also you have to measure it against a percent gain of the last year at this time to really see a real picture. Don’t forget the feds are pushing repo’s to create liquidity in the market.

  10. So Trump wants to hold off on a deal for a problem that he caused until after the election. Seems like he’s trying to hold the deal hostage, and say only he can fix it.

    • @icebeargaming I am bemused how often it is assumed anyone who comments against the Republican party must be a Democrat.
      I agree the majority of Democrats do their best to pretend to be the friend of the minority to garner votes, but hardly give a Damn.
      Trump, on the other hand, has proven himself a racist, with current /past staff supporting white supremists , and or their views.

    • @Ms Mp nope never supported their views just supported a friend or Ally so lie

    • @Ms Mp past? Lie

    • @Ms Mp nope a Dem or a dumbass because Republican is the only way.

    • @Drew Erpenbach “Taking” it? That’s a very skewed way to describe a trade imbalance. When you buy a used lawnmower from a neighbor for $100 and he only buys $10 worth of stuff from you at your yard sale, did he “take” $90 from you?

  11. Not only farmers but also the trucking company’s are getting affected. Paying much less per load than before.

  12. Trump needs voting out! The man’s morally bankrupt and simply incompetent when it comes to his job. There’s no shame admitting you took a chance by voting for somebody you thought was on your side.

  13. All of America is over leveraged. 1 trillion dollar deficit this year is that great ? Trump is selling out democracy !!!

  14. Yeah but they are crappy low paying jobs.

    • @Marvin Guigar An eleven dollar purchase 28 years ago would be a 21 dollar purchase due to inflation today.

      So no, 11 dollars an hour doesn’t go as far as it used to.

    • @Marvin Guigar $11/hr is less than $1500/month. Most rental homes are $1200/month. You have car insurance which is $185/month while health insurance fluctuates. Then you have groceries, utilities, and toiletries. So how in hell can anyone survive with $11/hr without being angry? Get off the boo boo

    • @Spade Card okay we’ll put it this way if Bernie Sanders became president that $11 would seem like five bucks an hour he wants to raise taxes if Elizabeth Warren got in there as president 52 trillion-dollar she would raise taxes it would seem like you’re making five bucks an hour so think about that

    • @Drake Fire well if Bernie Sanders became president and $11 an hour would not go far at all he wants to raise taxes. Elizabeth Warren wants to raise your taxes High Sky High

    • @Steve Ostrowski God bless you my friend

  15. Everyone gets a second job ! A low paying second job for you .. a low paying second job for you !

  16. He is taking action. He is bending you over for another round of screwing you again.

  17. Trump just wants to avoid being arrested. Trump will say anything at this point.

  18. Trickle down economics. A Republican death trap since the early 80’s. “Those” people love it though.

    • Tinkle On economics.

    • So you leftist dipshits support more government control that robs us through unnecessary taxes & social programs that haven’t done a damned thing for 80 years except create more mooches.
      Close the tax loopholes, get rid of the corporate subsidies, close migration completely until all of the illegal moochers are kicked out (those assholes cost us around $158 billion a year), cut off corporations at the knees that hire illegals instead of giving them a slap on the wrist, stop sympathizing with murderous ghetto gangsters (that are the largest group of mass shooters in the country) & their sob stories instead of their victims, crack down even harder on drugs to get the shitters & needles off the streets, etc.
      Leftists are bent on turning the 1st world into yet another 3rd world hell hole.
      When you import the 3rd world, you become the 3rd world.

  19. Yes, this man is right. BernieCat for President Warren for VP Pete for SOS

  20. Cost of living goes up and wages stay stagnant. Nothing new.
