The first of your three links seems pretty legit. The second, a bit more marginal (splashing somebody with soda and taking their offensive hat is not exactly the worst thing that happens at 2am in the big city). The third is Breitbart and thus 100% partisan and unreliable in the extreme.

Pay gains during Trump's first year in office best since the Great Recession
Workers looking for fatter paychecks had their best year in 2017 since before the financial crisis, according to a government report Wednesday.
The Employment Cost Index, a measure of salary and benefit costs, registered a 2.6 percent gain for the full year, tied for the best since 2007, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported.
President Donald Trump’s first full year in office saw gains that easily outdistanced any year for his predecessor, Barack Obama, whose best showing was the 2.2 percent increases in 2016 and 2014. Six of Obama’s eight years in office saw gains of 2 percent or less.

Good idea; keep the politicians in politics.

Wait, isn’t this one of those “phony numbers”?  The ‘biggest joke there is in this country’, according to a certain someone.

This Hispanic-Latino unemployment rate is probably 20 percent, but I will tell you, you have some great economists who will tell you it’s a 30, 32.  And the highest I’ve heard so far is 42 percent.

whichever set of numbers you use, hispanic unemployment has come down under president trump, who has created jobs for latinos and latinas (except the illegals of course),

I'm glad you brought that up, because look at the shadowstats unemployment curve

this is overall unemployment, not just hispanics, but you notice that it doesn't start to fall until right around when President Trump took office
The seasonally-adjusted SGS Alternate Unemployment Rate reflects current unemployment reporting methodology adjusted for SGS-estimated long-term discouraged workers, who were defined out of official existence in 1994. That estimate is added to the BLS estimate of U-6 unemployment, which includes short-term discouraged workers.
The U-3 unemployment rate is the monthly headline number. The U-6 unemployment rate is the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) broadest unemployment measure, including short-term discouraged and other marginally-attached workers as well as those forced to work part-time because they cannot find full-time employment.

You’re just trolling, right, pauper? You can’t possibly mean some of the things you say...

Pauper proves that the no-arbitrage principle doesn't work in social media: he has found a risk-free strategy of trolling you, bearish, even Cuch, keeps exploiting it day and night, and the market never adjusts to wipe out the excess lol profit.

Classic Trump beholden to corporate interests over common sense and the survival of poor people: https://www.cnn.com/2018/07/08/politics ... index.html

Of course, these are actual children as opposed to the holy "unborn children"
