Brady said he was pleased the economy grew by 3 percent of GDP in the second quarter of 2017, and that his committee's efforts to cut taxes could boost American hiring. Over the past year, average hourly earnings have risen by 65 cents, or 2.5%. The rate is still down half a point from a year ago and twice that when including sources of "hidden unemployment" like discouraged workers.
