Last month my 401K lost $15K.January 2018 Dow Jones was 26700 18 month later June 2019 the Dow is at 25000. Check your 401K and come tell me how great the economy is.
The minimum wage has increased to 15 in mostly democratic states, republican state are still between 7.5 and 9 dollars an hour.
As for the wall building 3 miles out of 3500 miles in 3 years is not an achievement.
The man is an idiot he is ruining America.
From beginning of the year my 401K gained $45K
Now, am I upset about my $15K (so called) loss - no because it is just a loss of unrealized gains (nonexistent loss or gain).
In reality I consider it a benefit because I was able to by Dow stocks much cheaper than otherwise and by the time I am ready to retire those stocks will be much more expensive and this is when my true gain will materialize.
"minimum wage" - issue is bullshit issue for several reasons.
First, there are jobs that do not worth paying more than minimal wage if even that.
Second, this is just introductory (grace period that usually lasts few weeks) wage, after that you are either fired or your wage go and steadily too.
"minimum wage" may be good political tool, but in reality it does nothing to you.
