    The numbers: The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits at the end of March fell to the lowest level since December 1969, a reassuring sign for the economy amid a bounty of other evidence showing slower growth early in the new year.

    Jobless claims, a rough measure of layoffs, fell by 10,000 to 202,000 in the seven days ended March 30, the government said Thursday. Economists polled by MarketWatch had forecast a 216,000 reading.

    This is likely why the Dems are so pissed at Trump.
    They had no interest in working for a living.
    And it's 100% true for the younger generation. They hate him for eliminating their excuse for still being in momma's basement at age 30.

    we're fine with 1. you should get off your lazy worthless ass and get a job, of course it seems you'd endanger everyone in your vicinity, yet still play the victim card.

    excuses aplenty, im sure....

    Figure that the money you spend to live in 2019 is not going to be less when you retire. so how are you going to keep the same kind of money coming in then is what you need to think about.
    Inflation will ravage you, in fact you will probably need more money at retirement coming in then you have now just to stay even.

    Wages are rising as well
    Would rise faster if the left would stop flooding this nation with no and low skill workers

    Why does the left hate the American citizen so much?

    Nope. I'll be fine. I have over 20% of my annual income going into my 401K and have a union pension coming if there is anything left of it when I retire. So I will either survive or live pretty well if I get my full pension. Then when I'm old enough it's time for my freeloading handout that isn't a freeloading handout..........Social Security.

    We all need to be debt free when we retire. If we still have payments when we retire that's on us.

    It cost a lot less to live when you retire, trust me. Especially waaaaay less in taxes. You’ll be fine.

    We won't need to worry about long term survival anyway, because AOC says we will all be dead in twelve years because we didn't play along with the Climate Change hoax.

    I'm ready to retire now because my job keeps getting in the way of my time on Truckingboards.
    I should just cut them loose.

    Market on rise, more money in paychecks, more tax refunds, part time job covered. But with all the jobs available out there now. May not be a bad idea to make up for Obama bankrupting all of us.

    Magoo, is there anyone dumber than Obama besides bubs and you?

    I just checked my 401K account this morning. Ya baby!

    :funky:

    My biggest fear was when the Dems took over the House that the market would tank, but it looks like the roaring economy and Trump not caving to them has "trumped" the negativity that they bring.
