Washington Post: Welp, Blue-Collar Trump Voters Sure Are Getting What They'd Hoped For With Trump

#MAGA?

Blue-collar jobs are growing at their fastest rate in more than 30 years, helping fuel a hiring boom in many small towns and rural areas that are strong supporters of President Donald Trump ahead of November's mid-term elections.

Jobs in goods-producing industries -- mining, construction, and manufacturing -- grew 3.3 percent in the year preceding July, the best rate since 1984, according to a Washington Post analysis.

...

The rapid hiring in blue collar sectors is delivering benefits to areas that turned out heavily for Trump in the 2016 election, according to the Brookings Institution, a shift from earlier in this expansion, when large and mid-sized cities enjoyed most of the gains.

...

Rural employment grew at an annualized rate of 5.1 percent in the first quarter. Smaller metro areas grew 5.0 percent. That's significantly larger than the 4.1 percent growth seen in large urban areas that recovered earlier from the Great Recession, according to an analysis by the Brookings Institution's Metropolitan Policy Program of a separate set of Labor Department data released on Wednesday.

But #MuhRussians.
