Quote:You make it sound like we're living in the Great Depression, when this is the strongest economy we've ever had!
No it isn't, you liar. The strongest, ever? Like as in since the founding of America?
The strongest and most durable economy in the history was in the 50s and 60, to the point where the early 60s recession had little effect on over all productivity or wages, and could be managed into a relatively mind status.
And the most "booming economy" was the 90s, due in large part to the information.
The fact is that most of the jobs added in both the current administration and current are lower income jobs. Yes, wages are ticking up, and that is good, but the pay opportunities are not enough to restore the middle class to its former glory.
While there have been upticks in manufacturing payroll under Trump, it slowed down last year. In fact most production slowed down last year.
That doesn't inherently mean doom and gloom, but it shows a certain lack of sustainability.
The problem is everyone gets bogged down in certain numbers, like unemployment, which is low, but not necessarily the types of jobs.
The underemployment rate has been rather high for several years.
Now, personally, I believe this has to do with the old revolution getting old, and a smaller need for what once had many. That a government solution form anybody is unlikely, and we just have to wait for the next economic revelation.
Either way, strong or not, is not the strongest ever.
And by the by, I don't think raking leaves will be as helpful say you think. For starters, you'll have to wait about ten months.
And as someone who used to do manual labor (and not raking, building fences, painting, that jive), the number of people who want to pay to have things that small done, are few and far between. AND they will pay you very little, most likely (there is a reason why it is mostly kids who do it).
And since I guess you are in your 40s, your body will more than likely keep you from getting the amount you would need to cover much.
