    The Duluth News Tribune ^ | November 19, 2018 | Jeff Ferry
    An interesting thing is happening right now in America's industrial heartland. Manufacturers are adding new workers at a brisk pace. And it's happening right in front of the very pundits and free-trade economists who predicted economic catastrophe over the past year. Simply put, President Donald Trump's tariffs are working. U.S. manufacturing employment has now shown year-on-year growth of more than 250,000 employees for six consecutive months. That's the largest and most sustained manufacturing job growth since 1998. In fact, the U.S. added 32,000 manufacturing jobs in October alone, for a total of 296,000 new factory jobs since October 2017. Overall,...

    Saturn Petcare, pending approval of its bid Tuesday before the Vigo County Redevelopment Commission, is slated to begin production of wet dog food in the first quarter of 2020 in the former Pfizer facility at the Vigo County Industrial Park, south of Terre Haute.

However, as part of an agreement with the Terre Haute Economic Development Corp., the company bid $1 for the land, in exchange for investing $39 million in the former Pfizer facility at the industrial park and creating...
  • "It's super-exciting to be a quant in 2018-2019. Everyone is hiring"

    If, in late 2018, you are contemplating going into quantitative finance, then keep contemplating. Panelists at the recent Quant Conference in London say you’re unquestionably on the right track. “It's super-exciting to be a quant in 2018-2019,” said one panelist (a hedge fund researcher who formerly worked for a large U.S. bank). “Everyone is hiring.” Quants’ enthusiasm for being quants might be dismissed as self-love. Except, they're not the only ones in the zone. Goldman Sachs has proclaimed its pursuit of strats (its own personal brand of quant technologists), while at another conference the week before, the head of recruitment...

    In an effort to beef up the city’s tech workforce, the George Kaiser Family Foundation is offering $10,000, free rent, and other perks to remote workers who move to Tulsa for a year. “I’m a California, New York guy,” Michael Basch tells me. “I figured I’d be really bored here.” “Here” is Tulsa, the second-largest city in Oklahoma, known for its new $465 million public park, the Gathering Place, and its annual Chili Bowl. Since moving there earlier this year, Basch says that he hasn’t been bored at all. The city may be 1,640 miles and a world away from...

    In a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The tactic is one of many ways companies are trying to attract workers amid a nationwide labor shortage. Some employees who were offered jobs after one phone call wondered if it was a red flag or a scam. Up against a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. This strategy is being seen mainly for seasonal jobs at retail companies such as Macy's and Bath & Body...

    Amazon has been an aggressive advocate for diversity. That includes providing strong support for immigrants, minorities, the LGBTQ community, people with disabilities, the military, women engineers and more. When the company was searching for a second headquarters, it made diversity a key issue. To achieve long-term success, Amazon said last year, the winning city must have a diverse population and a community that supports it. Does that also mean diversity in politics, geography and even home prices? Apparently not, because Amazon chose two locales — New York City and Washington — that have a lot in common with its hometown...

Bonuses are rising, too: 77% of those surveyed said their bonus increased from...

    Spirit AeroSystems plans to add 320 new jobs as part of the construction of a new building at Air Capital Flight Line in south Wichita. The new jobs are part of an $18 million industrial revenue bond request from Air Capital that the Wichita City Council approved Tuesday. The bonds are essentially low-interest loans that companies have to repay. They are used for capital improvement projects. Air Capital was created by developers Johnny Stevens and Dave Murfin after they bought the Boeing Wichita property on south Oliver in 2014. Air Capital is located directly across Oliver Street from Spirit’s Wichita...

    A New Jersey manufacturing company is relocating its international headquarters to Seminole. S.S. White Technologies, which specializes in flexible shaft technology, moved into a 90,000 square foot facility at 8300 Sheen Drive. "Moving a manufacturing plant from New Jersey to Seminole was a huge task, but well worth it," said CEO Rahul Shukla in a release. "My only regret is that we didn't move to Florida many years earlier." Of the 116 employees at the new location, 80 were hired after the move. The company also has several open positions listed on its website. For more information, visit https://www.sswhite.net/now-hiring.

    Amazon is hiring its own fleet of full-time drivers to deliver packages to Prime customers. Amazon will manage these drivers directly, meaning the company will set their wages, provide them delivery vehicles, and schedule their routes. Amazon has previously relied on delivery services provided by UPS, FedEx, and the US Postal Service, as well as contractors employed through its Flex delivery program and third-party courier companies it calls delivery service partners. At a recent Amazon training for the new program, drivers were told the company "didn't want people peeing in bottles," a source told Business Insider. Amazon is launching a...

    DTN The Progressive Farmer ^ | November 9, 2018 | Lori Culler
    The average American farmer is 58 years old, according to the 2012 Census of Agriculture. Farmers over 55 control more than half of the country's farmland, and one in two is likely to retire in the next decade. Combined with a three-decade-long decline in the number of new farmers joining the ranks, it's becoming more difficult to find workers. When it comes to hiring, it's no surprise that a popular credential to look for is military experience. We had a client recently hire a senior-level military captain to fill an operations role on a farm focusing on developing structure, process...

They don’t want to talk about immigration. They can’t talk about the economy. I mean Barack Obama is trying to say he rebuilt the economy.”At which point Henry chimed in: “You’ve read the numbers, I’m sure. Barack Obama created more jobs in his final 21 months than President [Donald] Trump has created in his first 21. I’m not saying...

    President Donald Trump cheered the rising wages being delivered to Americans by his combination of a high-pressure economy and his “Hire American!” policy. He Tweeted Friday morning: Wow! The U.S. added 250,000 Jobs in October … Unemployment at 3.7%. Wages UP! These are incredible numbers. Keep it going, Vote Republican! The good news came in the scheduled agency report about the October economy. Breitbart News reported: Wage growth, long considered the ‘missing ingredient’ to the economic expansion, has finally returned. Average hourly earnings climbed by five cents an hour for the month, or 83 cents year-over-year. That represents a 3.1 percent...
