So labor participation didn't recover, wages dropped as a result. I assume that entitlement spending rose as well. Our national debt is climbing at a crazy rate. That must be Congress's fault because they are GOP, right? If the labor participation rate climbs when Trump is POTUS and there is a Democratic Congress you might suggest that the POTUS doesn't have a large impact on jobs because Congress was controlled by the Democrats.
Get over it folks. Companies have been sitting on money because they didn't know if new regulations or rules were going to wipe them out, so they saved. The stock market reacted to Trump's win in a fairly positive way because they believe that companies are going to do well. Internally, the corporation that I work at is thrilled. Our future outlook will be much better under Trump than it would have been otherwise. We're going to be dumping money into projects now.
