A report in Sunday’s Herald stated that a rise in the minimum wage could reduce the suicide rate, as the rise in income decreases depression. Since President Trump took office hundreds of thousands of new jobs have been created. (He says 600,000; CNN says 317,000, so somewhere in between.) At any rate, we can credit our president for saving a lot of lives. Our rate of unemployment is now lower than it has been in over 50 years.
