As Metallicus said, I do like the bump in the stock market that is fueling my 401k.However,I would like to see anybody talk about getting people back to work that have dropped out of the work force.That 4.3% number looks good on paper but does not tell the full story.IMHO


Yes, I dropped out of the workforce due to my ruptured brain aneyrusm. It wasn't by choice. Even through my central nervous system is shocking and zapping me everyday, I am still trying to go to work.It's not easy feeling zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz throughout your whole body. It's like your electricfied all day. I used the 401k I had to left to pay my bills. I worked hard for that for 5 years.

Stick it to them.

I've been trying for a job like that. Trying to get the education for it now.

Problem is I probably come across as extremely honest, and they don't want someone honest. They want someone who will stick it to patients like they are sticking it to you.

I'd report it to your insurance company. That's double billing.

Oh, yes I will. Since it's coming out of my disability. Insurance from work, costs the same a month from me that I pay for, that I get from disability a month. Pretty much I get nothing back, because it goes towards my insurance for work. lol That's why I am trying to go back to work. I was full time. Than that happened, so to have it paid, I had to take their insurance. Messed up.

Not sure what your background is, I also minored in intelligence studies. 3.86 I am not stupid. Even after this dumb ruptured brain aneyrusm. I should be dead right now. After four surgeries on the brain, I am glad i'm not. I have afifth one coming up. But it's funny how you get those stupid letters saying your over-qualified.

Wage growth, or lack there of is nothing new. But blame Trump if you want, I would be more likely to blame Carter/Reagan.


Yes , speaking as someone that was employed in those days...

Wages go up when the demand for workers increases. Very simple economic concept so I have to question what the real unemployment number is and what this number actually means. It's very simple.


I guess you are some kind of trumpee showing how great our leadership is right now. However, can we at least agree that having some level of math literacy is required in this conversation. The unemployment rate is meaningless. Wages going up is meaningless. It doesn't matter what you pay in taxes. ALL THAT MATTERS IS THE PURCHASING POWER OF YOUR TAKE HOME PAY.

Money talks, everything else people post is BS.

Sure, and as we keep hearing, this is all due to Obama.

Don't know about you guys, but this wage thing doesn't affect me anymore since I'm self employed and get what I'm actually worth. I'm a "millennial" and I have close to 30k saved in just 5 years.

The problem is people just buy too much crap, and don't save enough money. Of course if you lease a car, or buy a brand new fully spec'd out car/truck then you'll obviously not have money to put down on a house, or make a mortgage payment. I still drive 2 very old trucks I use for work trucks, keep my equipment as long as I can, and if I want to buy a toy or something I just try and wait for a good deal on a used one.


I have minimal debt now, I didn't go to college so I don't have that burden on my shoulders either. Now is the time to find a niche market and work for yourself.. it's the only way you'll ever get your worth.
