Is it any wonder that the democrat party who thinks math is racist has no rudimentary understanding of economics? Life was sooooo much better under the 'Orange Godzilla'

1:44 Shows the problem right there. PART TIME. They will be hired as part time more than likely but forced into work that is of a full time nature with no benefits since they are on the books as part time. They should try full time and I think the job would be filled quickly rather than being cheap and really just wanting a slave.

Many of the names listed below were financed by socialist George Soros who for decades is committed to open borders and elimination of the Military and Law Enforcement of any type. Congressional Progressives (Socialists) is the same group that is soft on crime, early release, no bail, voted to de-fund the police, Gun control, taxpayer funded college for illegal aliens, support transgender sports for women, the indoctrination not education of very young children in CRT, who is a racist, transgender, bisexuality, homosexuality, gender identity, and support open borders, amnesty, benefits to illegal aliens. These are the worst
of the worst.

The economy is s*** because of inflation and the slow rise of wages it's still has not kept up with the cost of living across the United States plus to mention the overall stress Americans are feeling and the rising rent is some of the few things that make the situation in today's life very difficult and hard for families

Good thing the stock market is doing great and oil giants are making record profits. It warms the heart of those of us who are struggling to know that at least the wealthy aren't going without.

Recession or no recession, the economy has been fouled up for a long time now. Everything costs more. Housing, food, and automobile prices have risen at a nearly vertical rate.
