    MASON CITY, IowaManufacturers in northern Iowa are begging Terry Schumaker for freshly trained workers for their factories. The problem is he doesnt have enough students to train. Its not like we have the people beating down our door to apply, said Mr. Schumaker, a dean at the North Iowa Area Community College in Mason City. It is a problem playing out in many parts of the Midwest, a region with lower unemployment and higher job-opening rates than the rest of the country. Employers, especially in more rural areas, are finding that there are just too few workers. That upends a...

    This month, for the first time since employment statistics have been tracked, there are now more job openings than there are persons seeking employment. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the number of job vacancies for the most recent month were 6.7 million while the number of unemployed persons seeking jobs came in at 6.35 million. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) called these statistics further proof that the Trump Administrations policies are destroying this country. His tax cuts are provoking businesses to expand their production, but the induced labor shortages will choke off this expansion. It will be...

    Last December, President Trump signed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act into law. The largest shake-up to the federal tax code in more than 30 years, the law includes myriad changes that will benefit manufacturers. Among other things, the law reduces the corporate tax rate from 35 to 21 percent and repeals the corporate alternative minimum tax. The law also allows companies to immediately expense the full cost of qualified property acquired and placed into service before 2023. And, it maintains the R&D tax credit. While stumping for the bill, President Trump predicted tax reform would be rocket fuel for...

    Some people looking to secure a career in the technology sector might fear they are at a disadvantage if they lack technical skills like programming. But according to the head of Google's co-working campus in London, technical skills are not a prerequisite. "When I first came into tech, I was like, 'Isn't that just coders?'" Sarah Drinkwater told CNBC in an interview this week. "And that perception is just not true. When I look at a great company, they've got an amazing business development person, they've got marketers, they've got sales people, they've got technical people great companies need...

    Everybody has the right to a living wage. It's the responsibility of employers to pay their workers enough to live on comfortably, no matter what sort of work they do. No matter what it costs. No matter how much or how little value an individual employee provides. A job is a human right, and if you pay your employees anything less than a designated amount -- an amount that is not, and will never be, designated by you -- then you're a fascist and you'll be shamed and slandered and picketed until you comply. F*** your laws of economics, you...

    A new survey has revealed that while the insurance industry has posted record hiring numbers, insurers appear to have difficulty securing new talent. GreatInsuranceJobs.coms 2018 Insurance Industry Employment and Hiring Outlook Survey noted that the issue is far more complicated than it seems. Insurance employers were very clear this year. They are having a difficult time finding experienced talent not only to keep up with new job requisitions but to replace retirees and short-term millennial workers who are only staying 12-18 months, said president and co-founder Scott Kotroba. Kotroba added that with the record employment numbers and a huge...

So that just means we are all having to be more creative. We are having to look at maybe individuals with barriers that we can serve whether it be veterans, those with criminal backgrounds, disabilities. We want to help all of those that are willing and...
