For John, BLUF: This is good news for workers, and bad news for Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. Nothing to see here; just move along.
On City Life This morning Democratic Party Candidate Len Gold♠ cited a need for across the board pay raises for working men and women. Maybe the low unemployment rate is acting to raise wages.
From Breitbart, by Mr John Binder, 25 July 2018.
Here is the lede plus one:
American workers are seeing rising wages in western and central Wisconsin, just one of the rust belt states that President Trump won in the 2016 presidential election on his platform of economic nationalism.Economics works.
In the latest survey of 150 employers in the western and central region of Wisconsin, the Eau Claire Area Chamber of Commerce found that wages in 35 “benchmark jobs” have increased a total of 3.7 percent for workers. Compare this wage increase to last year’s, which stood at 2.99 percent for the region.

Republicans also, but only a few contested races, unlike the Democrats, with large batches of candidates, especially for US House, State Senate and 18th Middlesex State House Rep Seat.
