Share Now on:
Sure, the U.S. economy is creating jobs, but wages have stagnated. Is the job market feeling a little familiar these days? It might, if you lived through the ’90s. Diane Swonk from DS Economics shares some parallels between our current labor market, and how it was doing a couple of decades ago. Afterwards, we’ll look at Trump’s support of a new proposal that would dramatically scale back immigration, and then talk about a shortage in trial lawyers.
