Let's see.

* Labor force participation rate is flat.
* retail sales are flat
* wages and salaries are stagnating 40 years straight
* one-third of Americans age 18-34 live at home with parents because they can’t earn enough to support an independent existence.

The article also does not mention the key thing:
* Except for Mcjobs and sales jobs, there are virtually no entry level jobs that require no experience.

If we had a rocking economy, we'd see more of these.

So yeah, the US Job market is teh suck.

The language alone in that article makes me cringe. Any article that uses the term "shills" to describe people who disagree is a joke.

Don't use an article that starts with derogatory terms about those who feel differently if you want it to be taken seriously.

The article is valid
Real wages on a steady decline for 50 years
The spin doctors try to make that say Obama saved us and trump is ruining the country
