Transportation, warehousing and construction industries saw some of the biggest spikes in positive drug tests.

The sector that displayed the highest rate of marijuana use among its workers, accommodation and food services, actually experienced the largest decline in failed drug tests over the time period analyzed, with a 17.3% drop.

Democrats, Stop Obsessing Over Base Turnout. Remember 2018?Analysis: For Democrats, turning out the base is important. But mobilizing progressives alone isn’t enough to actually win in 2020. There go any chances Warren “I refuse to talk to Fox voters” ever had. We know. Which is why we just won’t vote lol and you’re stuck with Trump for 4 more years because you wanted the Corperate greed. We know what you’re saying, you said it 4 years ago with a rigged election. I have literally never heard the argument that we have to mobilize progressives. What everyone is talking about is mobilizing disengaged, under-engaged and suppressed voters.

US median income stayed flat in 2018, Census saysMedian US household income stayed essentially flat in 2018 at $63,200, according to new data released by the Census Bureau. We're at about $65,400 and we pretty much live paycheck to paycheck. With the cost of housing, cars, utilities, insurance, etc... and only ever getting a 2% - 2.5% raise each year max, there's really no way to ever get ahead. Your just sort of always stuck in a holding pattern. But more money in everyones pocket due to less taxes. Winning. Also the stats are skewed. Median Income increased individually, but as a whole ( due to increase in new jobs, which is lower pay typically ) it stayed the same. More misguided news. In this folks from the same folks that had just endangered American lives with there false reporting and blatant lies.
