This is how a great economy helps everyone. Companies have to raise pay to compete for workers. This is great news for workers. Go Trump go.
Dems hate low unemployment. They would rather have people out of work and dependent on the government. Perfect example of how Trump is standing up for the little guy. That’s why we love him.
CHICAGO (Reuters) - United States Steel Corp (X.N) workers are set to get the biggest wage jump in at least six years under a new deal negotiated with the company, providing early signs that gains from U.S. President Donald Trump’s clampdown on foreign imports are finally trickling down.
Trump’s restrictive trade policy, coupled with a strong economy, has sent domestic steel prices soaring, helping U.S. Steel post a near 60 percent increase in pretax profits in the June quarter.

So raising wages to compete for workers is a “Good” thing.
But raising (minimum) wages to provide better lives (and retain) the workers already on the job is a “bad” thing?
“Foreign” competition that puts Americans out of jobs is a “bad” thing.
But, American-imposed tariffs that put Americans out of jobs are good things?
