ㅤ”For the last year, free trade organizations, the Chamber of Commerce, and the establishment media has claimed that Trump’s 25 percent tariffs on imported steel and ten percent tariff on imported aluminum would cost hundreds of thousands of jobs.
ㅤThis year, the free trade apparatus claimed that there would be 430,000 American jobs wiped out by Trump’s tariffs. Now, free traders admit that the tariffs have not cost the U.S. any jobs.
ㅤA Bloomberg Businessweek report by Peter Coy notes that not only have Trump’s tariffs on imported metals not cost Americans their jobs, but they have also actually had the opposite impact, spurring job growth in the metal industry and manufacturing.”

ㅤ"President Trump’s economy continues to soar: a new report released on Tuesday from the Labor Department stated that in July, U.S. job openings jumped to a new record and the biggest share of workers since 2001 quit their jobs.
ㅤAs Bloomberg reported, ‘Job postings exceeded the number of unemployed people by 659,000 in July, the most in data back to 2000. Along with the number of quitters, the gap helps explain why wages rose in August at the fastest pace since 2009, as employers struggle to find qualified workers and Americans become more confident in leaving their jobs for better pay elsewhere.’
ㅤThe quits rate increased substantially because the share of private-sector employees deciding pastures were greener elsewhere climbed to 2.7%, the highest since 2001. Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell pointed out that the quits rate suggested the economy is near full employment.
ㅤThe National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) reported that 38% of U.S. small businesses could not fill their job openings in August; that was the highest percentage since 1973. The NFIB also stated that its Small Business Optimism Index jumped to 108.8 in August, the highest level ever recorded in the survey’s 45-year history.’"

ㅤWith the highest wage growth since April 2009, the average hourly earnings exceeded expectations of economists by substantial margins. It was originally predicted that earnings would rise 2.7% with payrolls increasing by 191,000; the numbers, however, clocked in at 2.9% with nonfarm payrolls growing by 201,000."
