GREAT AGAIN: American Workers Report ‘HIGHEST JOB SATISFACTION’ Since 2005
The American economy continued to post massive gains under President Trump and the Republican-controlled Congress this week, with new data showing US workers have the “highest job satisfaction” rate since 2005.
According to the Wall Street Journal, “more jobs and fewer layoffs” are encouraging companies to sweeten the deal for employees; increasing benefits and raising wages following the GOP-sponsored tax cuts.
“Just more than half of U.S. workers—51%—said they were satisfied with their jobs in 2017, the highest level since 2005, according to a new report from The Conference Board, a business-research group,” writes the WSJ.
“These are higher-skilled workers, managers, and they tend to have more control over their day-to-day work activities,” adds the survey.
The strong economic data could spell disaster for Democrats heading into the 2018 midterm elections, with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi vowing to repeal the “GOP tax scam” should her party retake control of Congress.
