Working Men and Women Optimistic About Future

Out in Swamp Land, aka District of Columbia, Senator Dianne Feinstein is serving nothing burgers up for the slobbering media. Over on the leftie coast, Google is flipping their beanie copter hats. However, in the real America, working men and women are feeling doggone good.

“The Washington Examiner” is reporting that blue collar workers are feeling optimistic about the future. From the article:

That recession driven grimness hanging over the workplace has lifted and now workers of all shades are feeling good about their future.

A new survey provided to Secrets said that 72 percent of blue collar workers and 76 percent of white collar workers are optimistic about their future.

What’s more, half feel that it would be easy to find another job if they needed or wanted to.

Yes, it is much easier to sleep at night knowing that you have a job and that, if you needed to, you could get another job. More from the article:

But in its survey of 1,001 employed workers, Porch, a free online network that links homeowners and repair, renovation and cleaning professionals, found that there is concern about robots and automation.

For example, 29 percent of blue collar workers are worried that their jobs will soon be automated. But for white collar workers it was just 24 percent.

Okay, folks, this is just between you and me, so don’t tell anyone, okay? We are in a time of rapid change. Whole industries are going to disappear. And, entire new industries are going to appear out of nowhere. True fact. The job you are working at today, whether blue collar or white collar, might not exist tomorrow.

Robots could take over your job. If your job is very low-skilled, it might not be there for very long. Robots are working in factories. And, robots and computers are making your fast foods. And, take for instance sales jobs. In past times, sales personnel had territories. They would go into the supermarket and convince the local manager to buy ten pallets of toilet paper. Today, corporate headquarters assess exactly how much of what type of toilet paper will move (so to speak) in each store. Computer ordering and reordering handles everything.

Some jobs are safe for many years to come. Those would be skilled trades jobs. Careers as a plumber, electrician, or computer tech will pay well, too.

What explains the newfound optimism? Remember former President Barack Obama telling us that we “didn’t build that”?

Well, except that each individual, in each successive generation, must summon his own initiative to build on what was done in the past. That means working hard to move forward. Barack Obama wouldn’t know anything about that.

We cannot ever forget the layer upon layer of regulation that Obama used to hold down and stifle innovation and American initiative.

“The Dallas Morning News” provides a little context:

Barack Obama is trying to take credit for the booming economy under President Donald Trump. “When you hear how great the economy is doing right now,” Obama said recently at a campaign rally, “let’s just remember when this recovery started.” By this logic, the Kingston Trio laid the groundwork for the Beatles.

Just reading the words, “the Kingston Trio” made me automatically start singing “Riding on the MTA.” Anyhoo! Back to the “Dallas Morning News:”

Two years ago Obama famously ridiculed Trump’s campaign promise of faster growth and a comeback in manufacturing jobs by saying this could only happen if Trump was waving “a magic wand.” Obama’s first chief economist Larry Summers proclaimed to the world that 3 to 4 percent growth was now economically impossible and no matter who was elected, 2 percent was the absolute best we could hope for. Other liberal economists were so disdainful of Trump’s tax cuts, deregulation, fossil fuel energy development and tougher trade negotiating tactics that they predicted if Trump were elected he would crash the world economy and the stock market.

Yes. The Labor Participation Rate (a better economic indicator than the unemployment rate) is up. Working men and women all across America are feeling more optimistic about the future. Y’all can say, “Thank you, Donald Trump” now.

    Things are good now, I’m not so optimistic about the future. Here in Michigan, after the years of 2002-2010 being called “the lost decade” under the Democratic Granholm administration, which was followed by the boom years of the Republican Snyder (a businessman!) administration and Republican legislature, featuring business tax and regulation overhaul, the voters seem hell-bent to re-instate the Democrats. Most people have memories that are too short for me to be optimistic.

    The Dems put the bad years off as part of the Recession but Michigan’s slide downhill started long before that. But, hey, Dems propose all sort of great stuff and those nasty businesses will have to pay for it! What could possibly go wrong?

      Democrats: Bringing the “Miracle of Detroit” to a city or state near you!

      Seriously, Dems have been in charge of Detroit since 1962, and their worldview (and love of corruption) turned the wealthiest city in the country (and possibly in the world) into the bankrupt, murder capitol of the world, with plenty of racism to go around.

      In the process, destroyed the industry that Detroit and the country were known for. We used to sneer at foreign made cars as cheap, quirky crap. Now, the best selling cars aren’t from US companies. Made in the US, to some extent, but not in Detroit (My Camry was made in Kentucky, and IMHO, it’s best feature is that is unsoiled by union hands.)

      *THAT* is what should be trotted out, when the Dems promise anything. What they’re really selling is Detroit and Venezuela.

    One other question – how the heck did I wind up with this inverted, sad faced triangle as an avatar????

  • MikeyParks says:

    The Left loves to generate and stir up “bad news” to keep themselves in the role of saviors. We don’t need saving; we’re doing quite well on our own.

  • Water Kat says:

    Imagine how the economy would have exploded in growth if he would have quit after his first term!

  • richard40 says:

    But how can these dummies be optomistic,just because unemployment is at historic lows, and growth is at history highs. dont they know Trump is a crude poopeyhead, and that must be more important than any other kind of reality.
