After losing their jobs, some Americans have been able to rebuild their careers after slight adjustments to their job descriptions.

Donovan Marsden works in computers. He lost his job and took another job at significantly less pay. But then he was laid off from that job as well. Now he’s making as much money as he was at his first job by doing contract work. He’s confident that the economy is improving.

Cynthia Norton left a job as an executive assistant to take care of her sister who had cancer. Soon after, the economy crashed. She worked for years at Walmart for minimum wage, but was eventually able to find work as a caregiver — work that she finds satisfying, even if it doesn’t pay as much as she used to make.

These are the shining examples of improvement?
Whatever success these folks have had means the credit goes to them and not the President.
That seems obvious but some agenda driven cheerleaders in the media desperate for some good economic news to suit their political narrative need to be reminded of that reality.
