And how many Americans will get this information about how the economy is lifting up American workers? From the White House:
Last week’s jobs report and other recent economic indicators have shined a light on the incredible gains American workers are experiencing under the Trump Economy.
THE NEW YORK TIMES: Workers Hardest Hit by Recession Are Joining in Recovery
“The least educated American workers, who took the hardest hit in the Great Recession, were also among the slowest to harvest the gains of the recovery. Now they are a striking symbol of a strong economy. The unemployment rate for those without a high school diploma fell to 5.1 percent in July, the Labor Department reported Friday, the lowest since the government began collecting data on such workers in 1992.”
FOX BUSINESS: Millions Drop Off Food Stamps
“More than 2.8 million have stopped participating in the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP) – commonly known as food stamps – since Trump’s first full month in office, the data showed. Food stamp enrollment in May 2018 was 39,329,356 versus 42,134,301 in February 2017.”
WASHINGTON EXAMINER: Hispanic Unemployment Again Hits New Record Low in July
“Unemployment for Hispanic workers again plumbed a new record low in July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. The unemployment rate for Hispanic or Latino workers fell to 4.5 percent in the month, lower than the previous record of 4.6 percent that was set just the month before.”
MILITARY TIMES: Unemployment for Post-9/11 Vets Hits Record Low
“The latest federal employment figures, released Friday by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, show veterans who have served in the military since 9/11 had an unemployment rate of 3 percent in July — the lowest it’s ever been, according to the government statistics dating back to 2006.”
Commentators and editorial boards are touting last week’s jobs report as further evidence that President Trump’s economic policies are delivering for American workers.

Jobs mean everything to the nation’s sense of well-being. Opportunity offers fulfillment; paychecks create prosperity. Do you feel better about your prospects? You should. The economy is booming.”
