    Experts were struck by the scale of the operation.

    “Serving 77 notices of inspection on different employers in the last three days within a single area of responsibility, in this case, San Francisco, appears unprecedented,” said Angelo Paparelli, an immigration attorney in Los Angeles with the firm Seyfarth Shaw LLP.
    So, the "Experts" were really just pro-illegal immigration types who are upset that ICE is arresting their clients and potential clients.

    Federal immigration agents raided 77 businesses in Northern California this week, demanding proof that their employees are legally allowed to work in the United States, officials said Thursday.


    It was believed to be the largest such localized sweep of workplaces by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency since President Trump took office. ICE agents swept into nearly 100 7-Eleven stores nationwide last month and arrested 21 suspected undocumented immigrants.


    Thomas Homan, the agency’s acting director, has called for a “400 percent increase” in such workplace operations.


    ICE did not identify any of the businesses its agents visited in the Bay Area and the Sacramento region Monday through Wednesday. The businesses were served notices of inspection and given three working days to comply, and no immediate arrests were made.

    James Schwab, a spokesman for ICE, said the raids the reflected “stepped-up” efforts to enforce laws prohibiting businesses from hiring undocumented workers.
    The operation is part of a strategy, he said, “focused on protecting jobs for U.S. citizens and others who are lawfully employed, eliminating unfair competitive advantages for companies that hire an illegal workforce, and strengthening public safety and national security.”

    So this was a "non-action" designed to look like someone was doing real work when they weren't. Three days to clear out all the illegals and straighten out the records? Seriously? No notice is the norm for sweeps that actually mean something.

    We are in the early stages of a technological revolution... The Electronics Revolution. Like the Industrial Revolution before it, there will be social and economic upheaval as how everything is done changes. In the early Industrial Revolution people moved from rural areas to urban ones as jobs moved from agriculture to manufacturing.
    Today jobs are moving from manufacturing to things like code writing (computer) and service ones. Where this will go is anyone's guess but it won't bring back factory jobs, that's for sure. Automation is where manufacturing is headed.

    Things change and in times of great technological change things change a lot. That upsets a big chunk of the populace who can't cope with what's happening.

    Service jobs wont cut it, and the factory jobs in the USA are not what they used to be. We do not need Tesla to come in with their arrogance.


    America became strong during WW2 because the middle class built America. Men without a high school education worked the steel mills and other good paying industrial factory type jobs and fought in WW2.


    The few conservative Trumpers who bash liberals and praise materialism are going agaisnt men of the past such as Andrew Carnegie and Henry Ford.

    These jobs Trump touts are not cutting it. The mindset of being appeased or happy with some 15$ an hour job is a threat to America. Some people indeed in this country are happy to making 13 or 15 $ an hour, I am quite taken away by this mindset. We won ww2 in part because the middle class was strong and at times even willing to fight for their rights. Anyone here in their 50s-60s+ will know the major US cities are not what they used to be, the hope is the USA can become the great country it once was,

    234,000 jobs? How many are part time and how many are full time? What wages?
    US added 200K jobs in Jan., pay up by most in 8 years

    Washington – U.S. employers added a robust 200,000 jobs in January, and wages rose at the fastest pace in more than eight years, evidence of a consistently healthy job market.

    The pay gains suggest that employers are increasingly competing for a limited pool of workers. Raises stemming from Republican tax cuts and minimum wage increases in 18 states also likely boosted pay last month.

    The unemployment rate remained 4.1 percent for a fourth straight month, the lowest level since 2000, the Labor Department said in its monthly jobs report Friday.

    Average hourly pay rose 9 cents in January to $26.74, after an even bigger increase in December. Compared with 12 months earlier, wages rose 2.9 percent, the biggest gain since the recession ended eight years ago.

    Take your blinders off for once Jack....care about your country not political parties.
    The "MSN" story is actually CNBC.

    There is a severe disconnect between the celebrations of Trumponomics and the grim reality of what lies ahead.
    Ah, the grim reality that lies ahead.

    So you would rather no jobs were created and that we continue allowing our infrastructure to deteriorate because you believe that will prevent the grim reality that lies ahead?

    Because he isn't one of them; however, that does not solve the problems faced by America.

    Meanwhile, they just added a lot more alligators to that swamp of yours.

    Liberals before Trump took office - Trump will destroy the economy!

    Liberals after Trump took office - Good economy is Obama's fault!

    They seem to be a mite inconsistent on economic cause and effect.
