President Donald Trump is trying to move the country forward by focusing on “good things,” but a new report warns that many Americans are still being victimized by a lack of progress.
The report, released Wednesday by the nonprofit Economic Policy Institute, finds that just 8 percent of Americans feel their wages are going up the fastest in the last 10 years.
In fact, the report found that about 30 percent of workers who are employed have lost their jobs.
It also found that while most Americans are optimistic about the economy, the job market remains stagnant.
It says only 28 percent of those polled say they think the economy is improving, and the jobless rate is nearly twice as high as in the pre-crisis years.
While some of these economic problems may be temporary, the authors say that while there is still some improvement, the economy still remains fragile and can’t withstand a sustained downturn.
One of the report’s key findings: Despite what many of the media and politicians claim, the unemployment rate is actually far below its historical high.
According to the report, the total number of unemployed has dropped from a peak of 7.5 million in January 2009 to just under 4.5 millions today.
The number of people who are either actively seeking work or seeking it at a reduced level has also dropped significantly, from an average of 1.5 to 1.3 million.
Still, the number of Americans who say they are looking for work has remained relatively high at about 1.8 million, while the unemployment number has dropped by about 700,000, the researchers said.
The report notes that these are the results of a survey conducted in January of more than 1,000 Americans who were surveyed over the course of a month.
It also said that the unemployment figures are adjusted for inflation, and that it did not include people who lost their job in part because they could not find a new one, such as the elderly.
But while the number is dropping, the real unemployment rate remains stubbornly high, at 8.7 percent, the institute found.
And this number is not going to change.
“The current unemployment rate of 8.07 percent is the highest in modern U.S. history, and it remains nearly 4.4 percent higher than it was in January 2016,” the report says.
Trump is pushing his agenda to get the economy moving again, but the administration says that the problem is much deeper than that.
It’s also calling for raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, as well as the creation of more apprenticeships, more training for workers and the creation and expansion of a “million jobs” program.
The president has promised to invest in infrastructure, create jobs, raise the minimum wages and create new tax breaks.
But the president’s proposals for tax breaks for the wealthy have been rejected by Democrats and some Republicans, as has the $1.2 trillion in infrastructure investment that is promised.
Republicans have been trying to put more pressure on Trump by pushing legislation that would create a temporary $1 trillion investment tax credit for companies that invest in roads and bridges, a $1,000 federal tax credit that could be extended for a number of years, and an extension of the child tax credit.
But many economists, including the White House, have cautioned against doing any of these things without more comprehensive economic stimulus measures.
