14 States Hit Record Low Unemployment.

Robert Massimi.

The economy seems to be humming on all cylinders. People like “Morning Joe” and others predict Trump will not finish his term, but with the economy getting stronger, people are coming into the Trump fold. Shanya Twain the Country Canadian singer came out today in support of Trump before she walked it back, Kaynia West the normally liberal singer has come out in support of Trump and his momentum builds. If the economy keeps going strong, look for many others to jump on board, and for many to call for the heads of Robert Mueller and Nancy Pelosi. It would seem that the mid terms will go the Republicans way as well, even maybe another one or two Supreme Court Justice.

What the media does not bring up is that for the first time in a long time France is with us. For years France was almost as strong an Allie  as England, only to have that pissed away in the last 20 some odd years. France recently helped in the bombing of Syria, in the past, has not helped us at all. Watching the two presidents plant a tree on the white house lawn with their two elegant wives makes for good fellowship.  Trump has also made great strides with North Korea. One never knows where the talks will go but he has made more strides in this endeavor then any other president has.

The facts are whether you like the president or not, he has showed the U.S. and the world that it is better to have a plain spoken businessman in office then a political hack. I was listening to Nancy Pelosi just talking about the conformation of Mr. Pompeo, this lady is so removed from reality that it pains one to listen too her. It is time we start draining these people from Washington permanently. The partisan politics are excruciating and it only hurts us, the American citizens.

Fourteen states have set new records for low unemployment rates in the last year, nearly a decade after the recession put millions of Americans out of work.
The states hitting new unemployment lows run the ideological gamut, from conservative Texas to liberal California, suggesting a recovery stronger than any particular political persuasion.
In March, eight states saw new record lows, including Hawaii (2.1 percent), Idaho (2.9 percent), Kentucky (4 percent ), Maine (2.7 percent), Mississippi (4.5 percent), Oregon (4.1 percent) and Wisconsin (2.9 percent).
California also set a new record last month. The Golden State’s unemployment rate stands at 4.1 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). That’s the lowest rate recorded since BLS began keeping track of state-level unemployment figures in 1976, and it’s a third of the 12.3 percent unemployment rate California notched at the height of the recession in December 2010.
Colorado’s unemployment rate is just 2.6 percent, among the lowest in the nation, and a third of the 8.9 percent peak it hit in 2010.
In Alabama, just 3.7 percent of workers are unemployed. Arkansas reached a 3.6 percent unemployment rate last May, its lowest rate ever.
North Dakota set its own record last year. Texas hit a 3.9 percent unemployment rate in November, after peaking at 8.3 percent during the height of the recession. Tennessee fell to the lowest unemployment rate it has ever measured, 3.3 percent, in January.
Hawaii’s unemployment rate is the lowest in the nation, BLS said. Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota and Wisconsin all have unemployment rates lower than 3 percent.
Such a tight job market means businesses are competing for workers, rather than workers competing for scarce jobs. That has some economists combing through data in search of evidence of rising wages, which have been largely stagnant since the recession.
Wages have risen only slowly in recent months. The average hourly earnings of nonfarm employees stood at $26.82 in March, up from $26.11 at the same time last year.
Alaska has the highest unemployment rate in the nation, at 7.3 percent, as low commodity prices challenge a state that performed relatively well during the recession. But Alaska’s unemployment rate has historically been higher than the national average; the lowest rate the state has ever recorded, in June 2007, was 6.3 percent, markedly higher than the 4.6 percent national unemployment rate at the time.
The District of Columbia and New Mexico both had unemployment rates of 5.6 percent last month, while West Virginia’s rate stood at 5.4 percent.
