  • Mmmmm this and the value of the money. being earned by these new jobs. The money is worthless, like nazi Germany the inflation rate is ten times what has been reported or adjusted in the poverty rate or social security retirement incomes.

    When a worker must hold down two jobs to afford rent and buy food these new jobs mean nothing.

    While i believe Uncle Don was elected to end the endless war his economics and blatant not caring for the poor will destroy his reelection campaign.

    He blamed California political parties for the thousands of tents on the street, he is going to find himself in one if he does nothing about those of us homeless and dying of poverty in America

    The belief of Trump supporters that He is helping the American Worker, is a total untruth, maybe in some areas a little, but overall the ridiculous tariffs and other actions only are serving to hurt Workers as well as increase the prices of Consumer goods. I'd like to buy All American, but it's to expensive for My income. Making People buy more expensive American products, by making foreign products more expensive through tariffs, is an old tactic, but it doesn't work in today's economic environment, it only hurts those with a Low income..

  • Factories closing in Ohio are not going to be all that helpful either. Or will the closings in Michigan.

    Something else that is not helpful for tRump's 2020 bid in the upcoming impeachment.

    Heritage Proposal Demand for Human Rights to Live

    Attention: Congressional Representatives; President Donald J. Trump, Michigan Department of Natural Resources,Department of H health and Human Services  

     To whom it may concern, as you know all life requires substinence via food to survive. I hereby propose on behalf of the Natural homosapien race wish to have our God given right to hunt and fish and forage freely without charge, permit or license untaxed in Michigan and the United States of America. This being said we should impose a limit to each human on earth for the number of fish allowable per day/month, as Well as limits on small game animals and large game animals per day/month accordingly with numbers able to sustain life and the ecosystems. Any act of monetizing a right needed to live is seen as extortion, slavery, and an act of terrorism against we the people/ natural inhabitants of earth and could very well constitute war against peaceful members of humankind. We ask you to do the right thing, serve the people protect our freedoms/ liberties and recognize our need to eat as any other living being or animal of earth. Also I state we need to push for country wide community gardening and farming to ensure independence and sustainability of the American people. Too long the citizens of the United States have been over taxed and took an advantage of by our own Government and we will no longer tolerate corruption in political offices as well as by police agencies.

       Sincerely, Lawrence E. Hamilton Jr. and following-

  • This is happening in the restaurants to. My restaurant laid off thirty workers and sequestered all the night crew cleaners tasks to the host and servers.

  • You get what you vote for. I guess those tax breaks for the 1% didn't open up the credit lines small America was expecting.

  • FED is currently giving banks $120 billion per day (on top of the $4 trillion since 2008). Laid-off workers should get trickled up very soon.

  • Trump will tell you whatever you want to hear, doesn't matter if it's true or possible. Empty promises will never help anything.

    Why does MSNBC play into the hands of Fox by letting Fox drive the news cycle? Fox "claims to be a news organization but it's essentially a Republican front group. The network was founded by GOP political operative Roger Ailes. … Ailes spent his career advising Republican presidents like Reagan, Bush Sr., and surprise, surprise, Nixon. A memo from the Nixon Library detailed Ailes' dream of launching a Republican news network. …[When] Ailes eventually founded Fox News … he turned partisan hackery into an art form." — Carlos Maza, Vox, May 24, 2019, https://youtu.be/VzoZf4IAfAc?t=73

  • Anthony the Overly Analytical Vegan Guy says:

    No matter how great the economy is, the liberal media will cherry-pick anything they can to try to make the economy sound bad despite it improving so much under Trump.

  • Bagrilla Jenkins says:

    Your bias gets more disgusting every day. You're nothing more than infotainment anymore. Speaking of layoffs, your fake news company is next. Too stupid to see it.

  • I'm a 52 yr old AFRICAN AMERICAN Male who relocated to Seattle from Harrisburg, Pa in 2015 for a decent pay. The factories are for immigrants as well as the housing. The factories laying off won't effect AMERICAN workers as much. I mean you need to be from Napal to get a job in the Common WEALTH of Pennsylvania

  • Read the comments and you can plainly see that 99.9% of this Godforsaken country believes exactly what the media says, whether left or right big or tall blah blah blah, its all made up lies to fool the masses. 2019 and most of you cant get your head out of the TV long enough to do a little research and find the truth, instead you actually think there is two sides and you have a choice.
    Wake up people its all a game thats leading to destruction.
    This country is so gonna burn !!! Jesus is the only way ro Heaven and the only truth there really and truly is.

  • Rusty Shackleford says:

    Funny what the reporter doesn't tell you (you just got to do a little research I never believe what reporters say.) Is Wood-Mode has been in financial trouble since 2008. Gee wonder who was president then. Not that a president has any real control over the manufacturing industry. They made very good but expensive cabinets. Under Obama's welfare state no one could afford to buy them. They went to Lowes and Menaurds and bought the cheap press board cabinets. Wood-Mode never exported any of their product so how would a tariff trade effect them. But anything to exploit and blame on Trump the MSM will do.

  • Raymond Kidwell says:

    Fake news. First of all NBC never cared about these workers until Trump got into office now they constantly try to turn them against Trump. Currently US manufacturing is UP! Trump's tariffs, deregulation and tax breaks are working. But we only got a small bump- it takes time to move factories back- just one presidential term is not going to make a huge difference. But considering for the past 30 years we have been hemorrhaging factory jobs and losing jobs every year- an uptick of any kind is a huge improvement. The second factor here is that companies are moving out of high tax affirmative action states like Ohio and Pennsylvania and moving mostly to southern states where taxes, land and wages are cheaper. Places like South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama etc. are seeing that growth. So yeah if you focus on states like Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio- even with Trump's help they aren't doing great because companies would rather open up in Indiana or South Carolina. Still I think most people are smart enough to figure out that Trump is helping them even if their state is driving away business. There are still a lot of factories in those areas just due to infrastructure that has been there for 50 years.

    We do have to address the fact that bad trade deals are only one part of the equation and automation is the other.

  • The Bureau of Labor Statistics do not reflect this report. Jobs get lost always because of markets things become obsolete like ice delivery or paper mills or photographs that are now digital.

  • Internet Marketing Maps says:

    Business is a risky business, even at the best of times … There is no guarantee in life for anyone in business, if there was, everyone would be running a business… But to criticize President Trump for the 40 years of mismanagement in this badly run business is something, that only a weak-minded left-wing reprobate would do… This is simply more piece of Fake News from MSNBC. 👀

  • So it Trump's fault the bank dont loan the company money? Why are all the educated people so dam uneducated? Trump cant save every business you dumb democrats!
