the wages aren't keeping up with the employer bottom-line growth though. so buying power is less than when I made $1.60 /hr at minimum wage back in the day.
Ask yourself this question. If the economy worsened in the last 3 years, who would you blame?

Consumer confidence, and investment confidence took off like a rocket the day Trump was elected.

If Trump had kept everything AS IS, and we were seeing the boom we have, then Obama could take credit.

Lowered taxes, repealed regulations, and energy independence is what has been pushing this economy.
