Hey Trump voters and worshippers hell no your wages are't going up --- why did you ever believe you could trust the ALEC Trump BS?

We’ve got some disappointing news for all those people who voted for Donald Trump because he promised rising wages.

 

While Trump keeps saying wages are rising the official government data show that’s just not true.

 

Consider a worker paid the median wage, half make more and half less, of $600 a week in round numbers. If she got the average 2.8% raise on July 1, her gross pay rose by a bit under $17.

 

Now consider inflation since her last raise a year earlier. Inflation ran 2.9%, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

 

That means our model worker is actually making less in real wages. Its only 60-cents less each week, not that she’d notice, but less is less and most definitely is not more no matter how often Trump says otherwise.

 

Back in January, during his State of the Union address, Trump declared that “after years of wage stagnation, we are finally seeing rising wages.”  Trump and the White House have repeated that claim over and over ever since.

 

PolitiFact rated that mostly false “because…wage growth began under President Barack Obama.”

 

Indeed, I reported two years ago that the government’s best wage data showed that, after considering inflation, the median wage was lower in 2012 than in 2000. For the bottom half of workers, pay increases are rare.

 

As Obama’s second term began, however, the median wage began to not just outpace inflation, but to grow at a rapidly accelerating pace.

 

In 2013 the median wage increased by only a little, about $2 a week above inflation. The next year the increase tripled. In 2015 it more than tripled again. Together three years of increasing wages raised median pay by $30 a week.

Fact of the matter is nobody ever got rich just working..

 

Infact most wealthy folks are either born into it or just got really lucky at investing cashing out at the right time.

 

Now you can live a decent life just working but it all comes down to money management.

 

Basically dont be wasteful.

 

Its not the dollars going out the front door rather its the nickels and dimes going out the backdoor that sink a ship
