Biden Lying To America About Economy

December 15, 2022

President Joe Biden recently claimed that American's wages are rising quicker than inflation in this country is.

A thorough fact check has determined that that is absolutely false.

Unfortunately for Americans, this isn't Joe Biden's first example of him trying to deceive the country, it's simply his latest attempt to do so.

"And all of this means that, for the last several months, wages have gone up more than prices have gone up. Wages have gone up more than prices have gone up," Biden said on Dec. 14. did a quick fact check and realized that it was nothing but lies:

Inflation-adjusted average hourly earnings rose by 0.5 percent, reflecting a 0.6 percent increase in hourly earnings and a 0.1 percent rise in the Consumer Price Index. The average workweek, however, contracted a bit, falling to 34.4 hours from 34.5 hours. So average weekly earnings were up just 0.2 percent after adjusting for inflation.

Compared with a year ago, both average hourly and average weekly wages are down quite a bit. Real average hourly wages have fallen 1.9 percent from 12 months ago, reflecting a 5.1 percent rise in unadjusted wages and a 7.1 percent rise in the price index. Real weekly wages are down three percent.
