    MADISON — In late March, Wisconsin and the world got to know Cliff and Yvonne Hooks and their Cliff "Cooks" restaurant in Barneveld.  It was a good story in the midst of a pandemic and governments shutting down communities and states nationwide. Hooks took prices off the menus and only accepts donations to help a growing number of community members make ends meet. “There’s no money — there are people that are not sure where their next meal is coming from and they don’t have money to buy food, and it seemed like a simple solution,” he told CNN.The story certainly...

    Princeton Professor Eddie Glaude warned viewers of MSNBC's Morning Joe show not to allow selfishness to lure them into voting for Trump. "I know a lot of you are tempted to place your own prosperity ahead of social justice and vote for Trump's reelection," Glaude said. "Well, DON'T DO IT!" "Granted, Trump's economic policies of deregulation and tax cuts have helped spur a booming economy," the Professor admitted. "Unemployment was at historic lows for minorities before the pandemic and the lockdowns hit. Likewise, stock prices have rallied back to where they were in Januaryenriching every person who has an IRA...

    As rioters and demonstrators continually take to the streets in major U.S. cities as if its their literal job now (okay, it probably IS for plenty), ordinary working schmucks like me cant help but wonder: How on earth do they find the time? What a life of leisure these people must have, with the luxury of apparently sleeping during the day and being able to go out every night and raise hell for the "cause." I certainly couldnt afford to do it, and you probably couldnt either. I mean, looting may put a flatscreen or three on the table now...

    In defiance of the best efforts of Democrat governors to keep the economy locked down and under wraps it came roaring back in August. Despite continued mandated closures and sanctioned rioting around the country, you just cant keep the Trump economy down. August saw an added 1.4 million jobs which, along with the end of furloughs for 7 million employees, resulted in an 8.4% unemployment rate, a drop of nearly 2% from June levels of 10.2% and well below the 9.8% rate economists expected. All of which was considered bad news in certain quarters. Accordingly, the Big Three Alphabets adhered...

    The ABC, CBS, and NBC morning news shows didnt give any coverage to the unemployment rate dropping well below expectations into the single digits during their Friday edition programming. A new Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) report released at 8:30 AM, revealed stunningly positive news on the state of the jobs market: the economy added 1.4 million jobs in August. But theres bigger news: the unemployment rate dropped nearly 2 percentage points from 10.2 percent in June to an astonishing 8.4 percent. Thats massively better than economists surveyed by Refinitiv, who were expecting a drop to 9.8 percent. The result...

    VIDEO One thing you can count on with MSNBC economic analyst Steve Rattner is that he is ALWAYS wrong. Here we see the April 2020 Steve Rattner being contradicted by the September 4, 2020 Steve Rattner over the plunging unemployment numbers. However, the one thing that both Steve Rattners agree upon is that no matter how slow or fast the unemployment rate drops, it always means bad news for President Trump.

    Chuck Schumer lashed out at Donald Trump on Friday after the president celebrated the sharp drop in the unemployment rate in August. The unemployment rate stood at 10.2 percent a month earlier, which means it dropped nearly 18 percent in a single month. To put it differently, the rate fell by 1.8 percentage points.

    The U.S. economy added 1.4 million jobs in August as the unemployment rate unexpectedly tumbled, indicating the nation's labor market is continuing a slow, but steady, recovery from the coronavirus pandemic. The Labor Department's payroll report released Friday showed the jobless rate fell sharply to 8.4%, down from 10.2% in June and a peak of 14.7% in April. It marks the first time since March that unemployment is below 10%. Economists surveyed by Refinitiv expected the report to show that unemployment dropped to 9.8% and the economy added 1.4 million jobs. It's well below the combined 7.5 million jobs added...

    A new wave of layoffs is washing over the U.S. as several big companies reassess staffing plans and settle in for a long period of uncertainty. MGM Resorts International and Stanley Black & Decker Inc. recently told some employees furloughed at the outset of the coronavirus pandemic that they wouldnt be put back on the payroll. And companies bringing back the majority of furloughed workers, including Yelp Inc. and Cheesecake Factory Inc., are making reductions as they adjust to the new reality that many coronavirus-related closures wont be resolved this fall. More fresh layoffs at big employers loom. A day...

    A $300 federal enhanced unemployment benefit will start going out this week for some. The benefits stem from an Executive Memorandum President Trump signed on August 8th as negotiations over a stimulus packaged stalled in Congress. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) announced that Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, and New Mexico are the first states FEMA has approved under the lost wages assistance program (LWA). In a statement, FEMA noted that the approval authorizes these states to begin paying $300 a week in addition to state unemployment benefits: FEMA Administrator Pete Gaynor approved the states of Arizona, Iowa, Louisiana, and New...

    Rank-and-file Democrats are pushing party leaders to vote this week on an extension of federal unemployment benefits that expired at the end of July. Democratic leaders have already made the remarkable decision to cut the summer recess short, calling the House back to Washington on Saturday to vote on legislation providing billions of dollars to the Postal Service. Now, dozens of Democratic lawmakers want to expand the weekend itinerary, pressing leadership to stage another vote reinstating the lapsed $600 weekly unemployment insurance that benefited millions of workers laid off by the coronavirus recession. In a soon-to-be-sent letter to Speaker Nancy...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. Governor Tom Wolf sent a letter to Pennsylvanias congressional delegation reaffirming his support for an extension of the federal $600 weekly unemployment benefit that expired last month, his office said Friday in a press release. With Senate Republicans failing to pass a bill continuing the program, President Trump on Aug. 8 authorized a plan that will reduce and delay payments to workers in need, end the benefit for 30,000 Pennsylvanians and increase the burden on states, Wolf said.

    With close to 30 million Americans still unemployed and thousands of businesses facing an uncertain future, calls for a guaranteed income are becoming louder. Guaranteed income is giving cash to people who need it because theyre living in poverty. It should not be confused with a Universal Basic Income, which is money given to everyone regardless of employment situation or wealth. The idea is centuries old but has actually been tried in very few nations. The most recent experiment occurred among 2000 unemployed workers in Finland. And, not surprisingly, it was mostly a failure. There were slight improvements in the...

    South Dakota is the first state to decline President Donald Trump's executive order to restart the coronavirus unemployment bonus at a rate of up to $400 per week, The Washington Post reported. Republican Gov. Kristi Noem, a rising star in the party, declined the bonus payments for those unemployed in her state because it never shut down during the global coronavirus pandemic. "My administration is very grateful for the additional flexibility that this effort would have provided, but South Dakota is in the fortunate position of not needing to accept it," Noem said. Trump's order diverted unused funds from federal...

    resident Donald Trumps current proposal for additional unemployment benefits of $300 a week just doesnt go far enough, California Gov. Gavin Newsom said during a Wednesday press conference. But he said he wont look a gift horse in the mouth now that Trump has said states do not have to come up with another $100 a week on their own. The Democratic governor said hes working on how California can process the $300 in the presidents proposal as quickly and efficiently as possible. The $600 in weekly additional federal unemployment benefits expired at the end of July, and Congress and...

    Unemployment claims fell to less than 1 million last week for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic hit the U.S. in March, the Labor Department reported Thursday. New applications for unemployment benefits are down significantly from a peak of near 7 million in March. The number of people collecting unemployment benefits through regular state programs, which cover the majority of workers, decreased at the end of July. That figure, at about 16.1 million, was still well above the pre-pandemic peak of 6.6 million in 2009. Were just running a lot of layoffs week after week even as a lot...
