Tom Sipos Says, U.S. Workers Pay Is Going Up



If you were listening this morning, you heard when Jordan Goodman reported that a quarter-million more Americans have jobs. The Labor Department reports this morning that the economy added 250-thousand jobs in October. Jordan says the unemployment rate is unchanged at three-point-seven percent. That's the lowest jobless rate in nearly 50 years.

Now some more good news, 24/7 News Source reports U.S. workers' pay is up the most since the Great Recession. The Labor Department reports average hourly earnings are up more than three-percent since October of last year. This is great news for workers.

It's the first time since the Recession that average earnings have increased more than three-percent, year-over-year. Average pay increased five cents an hour last month.  More proof that the Trump Economy keeps steamrolling ahead.
