Yet everybody I know is doing much
better. Odd huh.. My brother works
as a yard switcher, running semi's
to 7 different factories in the area.
There are 6 of them. He says he
would have to kill somebody to get
fired. He see's drivers break rules
that would have gotten them
terminated before Trump, but there
is nobody to replace them now so
they keep their jobs. And have had
2 raises since Trump, and none before.

Yeah, it's soooo much worse now. LOLOLOL!


So lots of jobs are screwed up and done horribly because people can't get fired is what your saying. So Trump has made things worse.

Full employment is making things worse? Some logic there.

Bob's the one who said people not doing their jobs well weren't getting fired. I just highlighted if that's the case, things aren't better.

Yes, because your anecdotal evidence is clearly the way things are everywhere in the country, regardless of statistics to the contrary.

My wife and brother in law retired
in 2017 from different companies.
Both had jobs of responsibility.
This year they were both called
by their former bosses begging
them to return for at least 20
hours a week. They can't find
qualified people to replace
them, they get trained and quit.
Neither accepted the offer.

Full employment of the workforce
is a bitch when all the qualified
people have good jobs. You can
try selling that it was oh so much
better under Obama, but we were
there, it sucked.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

They're doing their jobs, it's just
the company turns a blind eye
to small infractions that used
to count against them, It's just
too hard to get good switchers.
They back up loaded trailers
all day, some truck drivers
can't back up at all, it's an
art.

In the Trump economy there
is a huge shortage of semi
drivers. Companies are begging
for qualified people. If you have
a CDL, you can get a good job
tomorrow.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Please remember this in the POTUS debates when the Dems dig up some poor sap claiming to take dog medicine because they cannot afford things.

It means things are so good that there are not enough people to replace them. Would you rather have the record lpow unemployment we have now or the 7% average and 10% peak we had under most of Obama?

I always believe that. Anecdotal evidence should be used in a "for example look here" context, to support the facts, not a "this anecdote is the way things are despite factual evidence to the contrary"

the tax cut is being paid for by debt.

This is the dumbest thing I've ever read lol

So let's say somebody robs your house and steals YOUR money. Then the robber uses YOUR money to buy toys for his kids. Then you track him down and demand YOUR money back. His kids then have to return their toys and give you back YOUR money.

Only a dumbass would say that the payback was "paid for" by the robber's kids. 🙄
