Job growth: Is Obamanomics the reason?


As we watch the pitiful search for something good in Obama’s “legacy” we see the Democrat Party hold up his record for consecutive months of job growth. OK. So let’s take a look at that. As Obama destroyed the coal industry and poured taxpayer dollars into windmills to “create jobs,” something else was happening in Republican states.

Republican state houses were passing right-to-work laws. Right-to-work laws prohibit employers from entering into agreements that make union membership and the payment of union dues a condition of employment. In some states these laws were coupled with so-called Paycheck Protection. These laws allow union workers to “opt in” if they want union dues withheld from their paychecks instead of requiring workers to “opt out” if they don’t want their union dues withheld. These laws create worker freedom AND JOBS – the jobs for which President Obama takes credit.

Kentucky, where these laws were recently passed and signed, will become the 27th right-to-work state. In Warren County, the county that “spearheaded” the right-to-work law, there are 55,000 new job openings in a 50-mile radius. The Obama administration and their union sycophants HATE THESE JOB-PRODUCING LAWS.

Right-to-work states have seen an average of 68 percent greater job growth than the average of forced-unionization states, according to government labor statistics. 

Private employment has grown 4.9% in right-to-work states versus 3.9% in non-right-to-work states, according to an analysis of Labor Department data. This disparity is particularly stark in the factory sector: Manufacturing employment has grown 4.1% in right-to-work states over the past three years, compared with less than 3% in other states.

Almost half the jobs created during the Obama recovery have been created in Texas. Which perhaps means it should be called the Obama-Perry recovery. President Obama, if he were an honest broker, would need to thank Republican governors and state houses for the one and only thing he can list as a positive legacy.

    PE Trump rightly said that repealing Obamacare is a yuge favor to the Democrats from Republicans who had nothing to do with the disaster. Luckily Obama won’t be able to claim the benefits that come from repeal of it.
