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.

From the New York Times:

“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.

White House Guests KNEEL During National Anthem, Trump Makes Them Immediately Regret It

Published

The Marine Corp band in their bright red uniforms were on the south balcony of the White House on a bright, sunny Tuesday in Washington, DC. The Army Chorus sang, beginning the event with ‘America the Beautiful’ and concluded with ‘God Bless America’. At least two people who were guests at President Trump’s Celebration of America event yesterday knelt, showing exactly why so many Americans are ticked over the National Anthem controversy.

The event replaced a celebration at the White House in honor of the Super Bowl win for the Philadelphia Eagles. These two disrespectful idiots took a knee as the “Star Spangled Banner” rang out across the South Lawn of the White House. Simply disgraceful. These aren’t social justice warriors… these are unpatriotic jerks.

A video was posted to Twitter by a reporter for SVT, the Swedish national public TV broadcaster. It shows a man, wearing a light blue button down, kneeling as the National Anthem played, before clapping and ultimately coming to his feet after the song finished. I guess he thought that was his five minutes of fame or something.

What it really amounted to was making a fool out of himself internationally. President Trump showcases all of these liberal dimwits for what they are… America-hating, radical leftists who are far more interested in hating our brave police officers and our country than they are in respecting America and taking national pride in their country and President.

When President Trump took the podium, he blew his audience away with his love for our country, military, police, flag and the National Anthem. He made every single person who disrespects them like this look like the small, craven liberals that they really are. The man, who did not identify himself, left the event immediately after the United States Marine Band performed the anthem, according to a news anchor for TV2 Denmark. Gee, crawling away with his tail between his legs like the lowly cur he his. Guess he couldn’t stand patriotism after he showed how much he hates his own country.

There was a second man who was pictured kneeling as well. That was posted to Twitter by a CNN White House producer. He was wearing a light blue checkered shirt and had a little American flag. This guy was right up front. He was also apparently the same person who reportedly heckled Trump. That guy was roundly booed by everyone around him. CNN’s analyst April Ryan posted false news on Twitter yesterday claiming people were booing Trump when it was the heckler they went after. She eventually retracted what she said after her own colleagues called her out on the lie. “Stop hiding behind the armed services and the National Anthem,” the guy yelled to a chorus of boos, according to the Daily Mail. “Let’s hear it for the Eagles.” “Go home,” one person shouted at the heckler.

The President didn’t engage the heckler, but looked in his direction and pursed his lips. He looked like he wanted to smack him. Right there with ya.

President Trump disinvited the Philadelphia Eagles to the White House after they at first said they had more than 70 players coming to the People’s House to celebrate. By this week, that number had dropped to less than ten and then to only one player. They kept trying to change the date to one where President Trump would be out of the country. I don’t blame the President in the least for canceling the visit. That was totally appropriate. If you insist on being ungrateful and insulting a sitting President of the United States, then you don’t deserve the honor of going to the White House period.

Trump claimed on Monday that the team disagreed “with their President because he insists that they proudly stand for the National Anthem, hand on heart, in honor of the great men and women of our military and the people of our country.” Eagles players denied that accusation, pointing out that no one on the team knelt for the anthem during last season. But that has nothing to do with how each individual on the team states his beliefs and shows his disrespect for President Trump.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders accused the team of a “political stunt” just minutes before Tuesday’s alternative event began, claiming the players had chosen to “abandon their fans.” That’s exactly what they did. “If this wasn’t a political stunt by the Eagles franchise then they wouldn’t have committed to attend the event and then backed out,” she said in her Tuesday press briefing. “And if it wasn’t a political stunt, they wouldn’t have attempted to reschedule the visit while the President was overseas.”

Trump was brief in his remarks and only spoke for about four minutes. He began by explaining why it’s an issue of patriotism for Americans to stand for the National Anthem. “We love our flag and stand for our National Anthem,” Trump said to great applause from the crowd on the South Lawn of the White House. “We stand to honor our military and to honor country and to honor the fallen heroes who never made it back home.” Yes, we do… and those that don’t can take a hike.

Melania Unveils This Year’s White House Christmas Decorations That Libs Are SURE To Hate

Published

Melania Trump’s first year in office was marked by immense criticism of our incredible first lady, who in the eyes of the Trump family’s numerous detractors, Melania could do nothing right, or at least as well as her predecessor, Michelle Obama. This included her full Christmas decor plan, which was stunning in silver and white, and a beautiful modern take on the same tired style that Michelle un-creatively came up with.

This year’s decorations will likely be no different, if not worse.

Last year, liberals claimed she decked the halls in depression and gloom, likening it to looking more like a haunted house than a holiday home. So, what will they say about this year’s new look?

Chicks On The Right reports:

FLOTUS doesn’t just slay on the fashion front. Her decorating skills are off the charts. (Yes, yes– I know she didn’t do this by herself, but if you really believe she didn’t have a say, you’re nuuuuuuuuuuuuts.)

ANYWHO. She finally unveiled this year’s White House Christmas decorations, and they’re GORGEOUS.

You have no idea how much I want to stroll through those halls of beautifully decorated trees. Oh well. I’ll have to settle for the aisles of Hobby Lobby.

It all looks great. I’m obsessed. TY, that is all.
