Trump Secures Major Victory For Senior Citizens – Retirees Enjoy A New Cash Windfall

Published

on

Some people look forward to retirement. I’m not one of them and I know a lot of people who feel that way. I love my work and I plan to keep on doing it until I leave this world. When I get to that point in life, I want to have choices. President Trump has made it a priority to look after senior citizens and those who are retiring. He hasn’t forgotten about them and their lives of service. Now, Trump has secured a major victory for senior citizens, making it possible for them to benefit from the economy as they get older.

Those who are reaching retirement age and who are leaving the U.S. workforce and now getting a chance to keep doing what they love and stay in the workforce if they choose to do so under President Trump’s “Buy American, Hire American” tightened labor market and economy. There simply aren’t enough people out there right now for the jobs available. What that means is that retirees are going back to work because they can secure high-paying jobs once again. Age is no longer an overriding factor… skill is.

The New York Times tells the story of 62-year-old retiree Ilana Benet, who had left her job as a nurse at Montefiore Health System in the Bronx, New York City. She has ten grandchildren. Ilana went back to her former job at the hospital and is earning $60 an hour. It’s called supply and demand. She has a needed skill that is in demand and people are willing to pay for it. That money is added to her pension, etc. Benet works two 12-hour days a week, a role that she says is enough for her because she wants to spend time with her grandchildren as well. It’s the best of both worlds for her and she loves it. Frankly, working helps us live longer. Sitting around is what kills people.

“In a tight labor market, firms find recent retirees increasingly attractive,” said Kathleen Christensen, who funds research on aging and the American labor market at the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. “Their skills are up-to-date, they possess critical institutional knowledge, and they can mentor younger workers.

“Hiring back recent retirees appears more common than at any other time since the Great Recession,” she added.

“Gad Levanon, chief economist for North America at the Conference Board, said he has seen similar trends.

“There’s a labor shortage in many sectors, like construction and transportation,” he said. “The attitude toward employing older workers is changing because of shortages.”

This is the way it should be. You should be able to work as long as you want and are capable of. Since the unrestricted flow of foreign workers has been severely curtailed under Trump’s “America First” economy, Americans with experience in their given fields are in high demand and they are thrilled over it.

President Trump also just signed an executive order expanding apprenticeship programs. Apprentice programs combine on-the-job training with classroom instruction — “earn while you learn” is the phrase Trump has used frequently. Apprenticeships are available across a variety of disciplines, but are most common in the construction, manufacturing, public administration and transportation industries. Today, Trump mentioned expansion into machinery, tech, steel and “roads and bridges.” That means if you are a software engineer in your 60’s or 70’s, you can share that wealth of knowledge with an apprentice and help give them a leg up in the field. Mike Rowe is thrilled with this I bet.

As of last year, 505,000 people held apprenticeships in the U.S., according to Department of Labor data. About half of the all the active apprentices are in construction and another 35% are in manufacturing. But the tech fields are seeing their share grow as well. These programs enjoy a fair amount of bipartisan support and have gotten a lot of attention in recent months. In a March roundtable discussion, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff called on Trump to create 5 million apprenticeships in the next five years. Trump endorsed the goal. Such programs are sometimes tapped as alternatives to four-year colleges. Trump’s apprenticeship roll-out will “place students into great jobs without the crippling debt” that often comes with it. That’s terrific news and finally a bit of sanity has been injected into the workforce.

In President Trump’s tightened labor market, there has been history-making wage growth for American workers in the construction industry, the garment industry, for workers employed in small businesses, black Americans and restaurant workers. This same market has secured higher wages for overtime workers and high-paying, coveted white-collar jobs for American teenagers. The construction industry has had to recruit women to take jobs at higher wages rather than hiring illegal aliens. And that kind of thing is happening across the board for workers out there. It’s what the American labor market desperately needed after eight years of Marxist regulation and suppression.

VIDEO: Border Patrol Releases Surveillance Video Of Mass Central American Invasion

Published

* By

When President Trump was forced to end the “zero-tolerance” campaign at the Southern border because of the lib outcry, the number of people entering our country illegally skyrocketed.

Of course, Dems want this. Those are their future voters right there.

It’s past time to send in more National Guard units.

Fox News is reporting the latest:

“Large groups of Central American migrants continue to surrender to Border Patrol agents in Arizona with the arrival of one recent group numbering 108 captured in dramatic video images, authorities said Friday.

The agency said camera operators monitoring movement Thursday afternoon along the U.S.-Mexico border in the Yuma area captured images of a large number of people being dropped over the border wall east of the San Luis Port of Entry.

It said the smugglers never crossed the border while they helped migrants over the wall in four places. The group was comprised of 100 Guatemalans and eight Hondurans. They included 52 children, nine of them 5 years and younger.

The mass crossing occurred while another drama was being played out much farther south as a caravan of several thousand Central American migrants traveled northbound, prompting President Donald Trump to warn Mexico to stop them from reaching the U.S. border.

Arizona Border Patrol agents for weeks have been overwhelmed by the arrival of large numbers of Central American migrants traveling in families.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in Arizona earlier this month began releasing hundreds of people to await court dates, saying it didn’t have the capacity to hold an “incredibly high volume” of migrant families showing up at the border.

“Coordinated smuggling of large numbers of Central Americans is taking place daily here,” Yuma Sector Chief Patrol Agent Anthony Porvaznik said in a written statement.

Before the arrival of the latest group, authorities said that collectively more than 1,400 migrants had been left by smugglers in the broiling desert — or in one case in a drenching thunderstorm — in remote areas by Arizona’s border with Mexico since Aug. 20. One group was as large as 275 people.

Unlike Texas, where people turn themselves in on the banks of the Rio Grande, the smugglers near Arizona have been dumping groups of migrant families near Yuma, or farther to the east on a remote dirt road running along the southern limit of the Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument near the Lukeville Port of Entry.

While Mexican men traveling without relatives once made up the bulk of the migrants, Guatemalans and other Central Americans traveling in families or as unaccompanied minors are now the norm.”

Benghazi Survivor Has Choice Words For Those Who Criticize Trump Over Khashoggi

Published

* By

Liberals, MSM, & some Republicans have been criticizing Trump over how he’s handled the killing of a Saudi reporter who worked for the Washington Post.

Libs & MSM most likely have an ulterior motive as they want Trump to punish Saudi Arabia which could harm our relationship with the country, not to mention, their spending on U.S. defense items which equals a lot of jobs here.

Now a Benghazi survivor is stepping up to the plate for Trump & he has an epic message for his detractors.

Kris Paronto “was part of the CIA annex security team that responded to the terrorist attack on the US Special Mission in Benghazi, Libya, September 11th, 2012, helping to save over 20 lives while fighting off terrorists from the CIA Annex for over 13 hours. Mr. Paronto’s story is told in the book “13 Hours” written by Mitchell Zuckoff and his five surviving annex security team members.”

The Daily Caller reported:

“Benghazi survivor Kris “Tanto” Paronto had a few choice words for those who have been critical of President Donald Trump’s response to the death of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at Turkey’s Saudi Arabian Embassy.

Addressing his tweet to the “leftist journalists & liberalists” who are angry about the Trump administration’s handling of the situation, Paronto asked, “Where in the hell were you when @BarackObama left 30+ AMERICANS to die in Benghazi Libya including an Ambassador?”

Saudi state media reported on Friday that Khashoggi had, in fact, been killed inside the embassy. So far, eighteen arrests have been made — and some of those arrested have close ties to the Saudi crown prince.

Turkish officials claim to have a recording of Khashoggi’s death, which they have said was essentially a hit, ordered by the crown prince himself and carried out by professionals.

Despite an early report that U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had been granted access to the recording, the top diplomat has refuted that claim in a statement.

The investigation, currently being carried out by Saudi and Turkish officials, is still ongoing.”

USA Today reported about Paranto’s attitude toward Obama & Benghazi earlier:

“Former Army Ranger Kris Paronto said he wanted to reach through the screen and “choke” former President Barack Obama after the one-time commander in chief referred to “wild conspiracy theories” surrounding the 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, that left four Americans dead.

Paronto, a then-CIA contractor who was part of the response to the attack, made the comment during a Fox News interview Sunday.

“It’s disgusting,” Paronto told Fox News host Pete Hegseth, adding that he thought it showed Obama to be a “narcissist” and “elitist.”

“It just raises the bile inside of me. I had a hard time just watching the speech itself,” he said.

“I just wanted to see what he had to say. And when that came across, I just wanted to reach through the screen and just grab him — grab him and choke him and say, ‘Are you kidding me? Are you kidding me that you’d have the gall to disgrace the memory of my teammates and what we did there that night by calling it conspiracy?’””
