ISM DATA – “Comments from the panel reflect continued expanding business strength. Demand remains strong, with the New Orders Index at 60 percent or above for the 14th straight month, and the Customers’ Inventories Index remaining low. The Backlog of Orders Index continued to expand, reading at 60 percent of higher for the third consecutive month. Consumption, described as production and employment, continues to expand in spite of labor, skill and material shortages.

 

What does this mean in blue collar language?  Short term: OVERTIME pay folks…. maximum earnings possibilities as demand for factory and manufacturing has all employment working maximum production shifts. Long term: upward wage pressure, jobs, jobs, jobs. 

 

Inventory backlogs, “supply chain issues” equals not enough drivers and haulers to keep up with production shipment demand. Thirst for raw materials.  “Supplier labor issues”, sources of raw materials and ancillary origination parts are having a hard time staffing up for the demand.   Yup, more upward blue collar wage pressure.  “Transportation difficulties“, again, Truckers and shippers in high demand.

The Booming Economy 

 

United States economy grew at the rate of 4.1 percent 

 the trade deficit has dropped by more than $50 billion 

since I was elected, we’ve created approximately $7 trillion of new wealth.

 

The year before I came into office, private business investment grew at only 1.8 percent. Last year, it jumped to 6.3 percent. And this year, it’s growing at 9.4 percent. 

When I came into office, 1.5 million fewer prime-age Americans were working than eight years before. We had lost almost 200,000 manufacturing jobs under the previous administration. 

 

We have added 3.7 million new jobs since the election 

New unemployment claims have recently achieved their lowest level in almost half a century. African American unemployment is the best it’s ever been in the history of our country. The Hispanic unemployment rate has reached the lowest level, likewise, in history. The Asian unemployment rate has recently reached the lowest level, again likewise, in history. Women unemployment rate recently reached the lowest level in 65 years. 

 

More than 3.5 million Americans have been lifted off food stamps. 

Ninety-five percent of American manufacturers are optimistic about their company’s outlook. And that’s the highest level, also, in history. 

Manufacturing wages are expected to rise at the fastest rate in over 17 years. Business and consumer confidence has reached historic highs.

So far this year, American exports are up nearly 20 percent.

Trump is reversing income inequality. 

 

“recent wage growth ... at the lower end of the wage scale has been stronger” than among those higher paid. 

 

job growth has been greatest among “goods-producing workers and the least-educated workers.”

 

 in the 1998-2001 period of economic growth, income gains were concentrated at the top of the economic spectrum
