Thanks Obama: U.S. wages rise at the fastest pace since the Great Recession. President Obama is leaving the economy in good shape, far better than how he got it in 2008.
The U.S. added 156,000 new jobs in December, 2016, and worker pay rose, “reflecting a surge in employment over the past six years that’s left many companies complaining about a shortage of skilled labor,” Market Watch reports.
Market Watch reports, “The increase in hiring last month was spearheaded by health-care providers, financial firms, manufacturers, restaurants and shipping companies.”
