US Private Sector Adds 246,000 Jobs In Jan

The U.S. private sector added 246,000 new jobs in January, outpacing economists projections for the start of 2017.

Report: Trump Reaches Deal With Carrier To Keep 1,000 Jobs In US

The incoming Trump administration has reached a deal with Carrier to keep about 1,000 jobs in the U.S. rather than outsourcing them to Mexico.

Trump may be crazy but this Hillary video is downright terrifying

By Matt Rooney | The Save Jersey Blog Regular Save Jersey readers know that I’m no fan of the Donald.
