    I'm sure that I'm not alone one this. I am set to be interviewed by a reputable aerospace company. Their job posting states the following: "All prospective, newly hired, and/or onboarding employees must receive the COVID-19 vaccination in full prior to their start date with ULA. Vaccination is required as a condition of employment, unless otherwise exempted by approved reasonable accommodation." How do I get around this?

    Spain is planning to introduce medical leave for women who suffer from severe period pain, media reports suggest.A draft bill says women could have three days of leave a month - extended to five in some circumstances. But politicians warned that the draft - leaked to Spanish media outlets - was still being worked on. If passed, it would be the first such legal entitlement in Europe. Only a handful of countries around the world have such legislation in place.

    A top artificial intelligence executive at Apple is leaving the company over its return-to-office policy, according to a report. The news comes as Apple orders all corporate employees to return to the office for three days per week — a stricter policy than Big Tech competitors like Meta, Google and Amazon, which are allowing at least some employees to work remotely forever. Director of machine learning Ian Goodfellow announced his resignation last week, telling colleagues that CEO Tim Cook’s push to get employees back into the office had driven him out.
  • US worker productivity fell at the fastest rate in nearly 75 years

    US labor productivity tumbled by 7.5% in the first quarter of 2022 -- the largest decline in worker output per hour since 1947, according to Labor Department data released Thursday. The report also showed that unit labor costs, or how much workers are paid per unit of output, surged by 11.6% during the quarter. That reflects a 3.2% increase in hourly compensation and a 7.5% decrease in productivity. Analysts polled by Refinitiv had projected a 5.4% decline in productivity and a 9.9% rise in labor costs. Thursday's data underscores the robust labor market, where competition for workers has pushed up...

    A record-setting 4.5 million Americans quit their jobs in March, according to data released Tuesday from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The data also showed 11.5 million jobs available, indicating a continued advantage for workers as companies and industries across the country – from airlines to teachers- struggle with staffing shortages. Julia Pollak, chief economist at ZipRecruiter, went so far as to call the current market “the greatest job seekers’ market of all time” in a tweet.

    For the past two years now, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has aggressively lectured us about wearing masks, social distancing, vaccination, and even boosters. We’re told repeatedly that “the science” says masks work, that the virus can’t travel more than six feet or while you’re eating food, that the vaccines are completely safe, etc. As of right now, they’re recommending boosters every few months until the end of the world. But while the CDC officially recommends all of us to get jabbed for eternity, as of April 12, there are nearly 400 employees at the CDC...

  • Fed’s Dual Mandate Derby! Misery Index Hits All-time High (Flexible Price Core Inflation Losses At 21.82% Overwhelming Employment Gains)

    The Federal Reserve’s two goals of price stability and maximum sustainable employment are known collectively as the “dual mandate.” Unfortunately, inflation is running away (bad) from employment gains (good). Sort of like “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” But just the Good and The Ugly combine to create the Misery Index. Here is the Atlanta Fed’s CORE flexible CPI YoY for March. The good news? Flexible Core CPI YoY was a little lower than the historic high reading in February. The bad news? We are still talking about 21.82%+ rise in prices (down from 23.56% in February). If I...

    U.S. employers say it's a hard time to find and keep talent. Workers are decamping at near-record rates, while millions of open jobs go unfilled. One reason for this labor crunch that has largely flown beneath the radar: Immigration to the U.S. is plummeting, a shift with potentially enormous long-term implications for the job market. In the middle of the last decade, the U.S. was adding about 1 million immigrants a year. But those numbers, which slowed down during the Trump administration, hit a brick wall when COVID-19 erupted in 2020.In 2020, immigration fell to half of its 2016 level;...

    President Joe Biden and his deputies at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped nearly all border protections for U.S. graduates, allowing a mass rush of Indian graduates to grab jobs from Fortune 500 companies, experts and foreign workers say. “They’ve opened up everything,” said Jay Palmer, a civil rights, human trafficking, and immigration rights activist, who works with many of the foreign visa workers who are exploited by their U.S. employers. He continued: “The administration has basically taken down all the checks and balances, and they opened the entire immigration platform for any [foreign gradaute] that wants to...
  • The Employment Data is a DISASTER! Here's why the official numbers are so far off.

    Analysis of BLS data accessed through FRED, the Federal Reserve Economic Data reporting website. | Dangus
    Each month, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics (BLS) asks, "how many people are out of work?" That number GREW by 184,000 last month. It's entirely possible to have a surge in unemployment AND a surge in employment at the same time, because sometimes there is a collapse in the number of people who are "out of the workforce." But that didn't happen. Instead, the government readjusted its estimated size of the workforce up by over 1 million. Since the number of uemployed grew by a much smaller number, the government says, "Whelp, I guess they all got jobs." They...

    A mere 44% of Americans have enough savings to cover an unplanned expense of $1,000, according to a survey. The number means that the majority of Americans would need to use other methods, aside from their personal savings, to pay for an emergency expense. While the findings may be surprising to some, they represent an improvement compared to last year, when 39% said they have enough money saved for a $1,000 emergency expense. Greg McBride, chief financial analyst for, says, “While the ability to cover an unplanned $1,000 expense from savings is the best we’ve seen over the...

    ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — State regulators who three years ago issued an air quality permit for a proposed copper-nickel mine in northwestern Minnesota stood by their decision in a report released Monday that said the mine did not provide misleading information on its plans. The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency report...does not clear the way for construction. Other major permits remain up in the air because of ongoing court cases or administrative work. Even so, PolyMet CEO Jon Cherry said the action on the air permit “moves us one big step closer” to building the estimated $1 billion mine, which...

    The streamer is unsuccessful in getting a California appeals court to lift an injunction.Netflix may see fixed-term contracts for entertainment executives as a form of involuntary servitude, but on Thursday, the streamer experienced a tough legal loss when a California appeals court refused to accept that perspective and overturn an injunction that prevented Netflix from poaching executives at Disney’s Fox unit. Fox sued back in September 2016 upon the defection of production executive Tara Flynn and marketing executive Marcos Waltenberg. Netflix responded with a countersuit alleging that the executives’ respective Fox employment contracts were unenforceable as an illegal non-compete. Netflix...
