U.S. Wages up 2.9%

*The government reported that wages grew 2.9% last month. That is the sharpest advance since 2009 when the country was coming out of a deep recession.*

*In addition, employment continues to improve as people leave part time jobs and take full time jobs. The graphic shows total employment gains in the past year. But, part of that is 200,000 jobs in the manufacturing sector, just as the President promised on the campaign.*

This graphic doesn’t show that unemployment in the black and Hispanic communities are down to their lowest levels in decades.
