At the risk of sounding cruel, tighter criteria for disability entitlements might get some more back to work.dmp said:Yes, the Trump economy is putting his 98 million dropouts back to work. Too bad if they were retired, disabled, in school, or laying in a nursing home....
Seriously though, the increase from almost 81% to 82% is the first up tick in 4 yrs and a good sign - not surprising either as the unemployment rate of those actively searching dropped below 5%.. The argument that people retired or went on disability due to no decent work opportunity is interesting and we will see if it plays out in reality. Will disability numbers decrease now?
I won't report anecdotes I've heard of abuse locally.
Lets stay with the optimistic read, that people are feeling better about the economy.
