Economic Disaster: Real Wages Have Crashed in Biden Era

According to federal data, it is becoming harder for Americans to make a living in the Biden era as real wages have crashed.

According to federal data, it is becoming harder for Americans to make a living in the Biden era as real wages have crashed.

Real average hourly earnings for all employees dropped 0.1 percent from June to July, according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Worse, prices have jumped higher than ever, meaning that American workers are far worse off under Joe Biden.

Breitbart news notes that the current numbers are even worse when you look back:

Zoom out the time frame and things are even worse. Real average hourly earnings nosedived 1.2 percent from July 2020 to July 2021.
The change in real average hourly earnings combined with an increase of 0.6 percent in the average workweek resulted in a 0.7-percent decrease in real average weekly earnings.
So we’re working more and earning less.

The government tracks a category of job holders called “production and nonsupervisory employees.” In other words, everyone but the bosses. From July 2020 to July 2021, real average hourly earnings decreased 1.1 percent, seasonally adjusted.
When inflation started to pick up earlier this year, many pundits said that there would be a “silver lining” of wage increases.

With wages lagging far behind inflation, Biden is seriously hurting American workers.

VIDEO: Police Inaction During Uvalde Shooting has Residents Furious

Authorities have suggested that they are investigating the inaction of some officers during the shooting, but haven’t elaborated further.

As the chaos played out in Uvalde, Texas this week, several local Uvalde residents, (some of them parents of children currently inside the scene of an active shooter situation), were on the street pleading with police to enter the school.

These officers did not enter the school, however, until backup of some sort arrived, and their inaction has many in the community absolutely furious.

Frustrated onlookers urged police officers to charge into the Texas elementary school where a gunman’s rampage killed 19 children and two teachers, witnesses said Wednesday, as investigators worked to track the massacre that lasted upwards of 40 minutes and ended when the 18-year-old shooter was killed by a Border Patrol team.

“Go in there! Go in there!” nearby women shouted at the officers soon after the attack began, said Juan Carranza, 24, who saw the scene from outside his house, across the street from Robb Elementary School in the close-knit town of Uvalde. Carranza said the officers did not go in.

And, what’s more…

Javier Cazares, whose fourth grade daughter, Jacklyn Cazares, was killed in the attack, said he raced to the school when he heard about the shooting, arriving while police were still gathered outside the building.

Upset that police were not moving in, he raised the idea of charging into the school with several other bystanders.

“Let’s just rush in because the cops aren’t doing anything like they are supposed to,” he said. “More could have been done.”

“They were unprepared,” he added.

The harrowing scene was shared on social media, but we must warn you that the video below is not for the faint of heart.

Secret Service Shamed After Drunk Agents Assault Cab Driver in South Korea

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations.

You can tell a lot about a White House by the extracurricular nonsense that hits the press surrounding it.

For instance, after one of President Joe Biden’s dogs began biting random people on the grounds, we started hearing murmurs of just how terse and stressful the place had become, with dog behavior experts suggesting that the mood at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue might have a lot to do with the aggression.

This week, the Biden administration beget more bad behavior, but this time it wasn’t from one of the First Pets.

Two U.S. Secret Service agents in South Korea were sent stateside ahead of President Biden’s arrival following their involvement in an off-duty alcohol-related incident.

The two agents, whose identities have not been made public, are on their way back to Washington, D.C. where they will face disciplinary action, a source familiar with the matter told Fox News.

Both agents apparently became intoxicated while not on duty. One of the agents then got into an altercation with a cab driver.

There could be more trouble coming, as well.

In South Korea, officials send mediators to the scene of low-level disputes and then determine if criminal charges would be filed.

One of the agents was interviewed by authorities and no charges have been filed.

The government released one of its usual, dry, boilerplate-esque missives.

“The Secret Service is aware of an off-duty incident involving two employees which may constitute potential policy violations,” USSS chief spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told Fox News. “We have very strict protocols and policies for all employees and we hold ourselves to the highest professional standards.”

There is a history of poor behavior from the Secret Service during Democratic administrations, with a notable incident having occurred in 2012, involving Barack Obama’s agents and a Colombian prostitute.
