On this Labor Day, President Trump issued a presidential proclamation which provides a tribute to American workers and their contributions to the nation as a whole. In this proclamation, the president discusses the manner in which his policies have contributed to workers and America. Under the Trump presidency, workers’ wages have increased, taxes, have decreased, and levels of unemployment are at an all-time low.
This reality maintains in spite of left-wing critics who have suggested that President Trump’s economic policies are merely designed to benefit the wealthy, at the expense of everyday Americans.
A Closer Review of the Labor Day Message
To be precise, since President Trump’s time in office, more than six million new jobs have flourished in the country’s economy. More jobs, higher wages, and lower unemployment are only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the president’s commitment to fighting for American workers. Trump is additionally working with South Korea, Canada, and Mexico in order to secure better trade deals for U.S. companies with American workers.
The provision of new training opportunities serves as yet another strategy which the president is employing for the sake of bettering the American worker. Trump explains this in a section of his Labor Day presidential proclamation.
See for yourself:
“In July, as of the 1-year anniversary of our pledge, more than 300 companies and organizations had already joined us in this effort, committing to more than 12 million new education and training opportunities for American students and workers.”
The president furthermore noted the increase of access to various apprenticeships under his administration:
“We are also promoting expanded access to apprenticeships through the Industry-Recognized Apprenticeship Program, which will enable associations, unions, educational institutions, and non‑profit organizations to partner and create exceptional opportunities for apprentices to earn and learn through their careers.”
A Stronger America
A stronger economy ultimately leads to a stronger America which benefits everyone. On this Labor Day and as the 2020 presidential election plays out, it’s important to remember the importance of a robust economy. Furthermore, we should all remain vigilant of the reality that fiscally conservative policies are the best strategies for ensuring that everyone has an opportunity to succeed in this country.
