  • From Minimum Wage to Maximum Damage

    Illinois Review ^ | February 5, 2021 AD | John F Di Leo
    The halls of Congress are ringing with the siren song of an increased minimum wage. Politicians who don’t have employees of their own promised their constituents fat sums of other people’s money during the campaign, and now they feel it’s time to delivery on the promise, by mandating that other companies raise the hourly wage they pay their employees. And it’s not just a raise, it’s a standard, a new flat number from coast to coast and border to border, determined arbitrarily, because it sounds neat and feels generous. The proposal on the table is to more than double the...

    Need more proof that Amazon is big? It came this week. Amazon's U.S. workforce topped 500,000 for the first time, up 43% from the year before and more than triple what it was five years ago, the company said Friday. It gained 150,000 workers last year, more than the size of Apple's entire workforce. When it reported its quarterly performance Thursday, Amazon revealed that another 150 million people had become members of its Prime service, which offers faster shipping and other perks. On Friday, even while the Dow tumbled 600 points, Amazon shares soared passed $2,000 apiece, doubling in price...

    When Joevie Alvarado became a teacher, she never expected to teach American students 7,600 miles away. But a dire shortage of US teachers means some schools are taking drastic measures -- like hiring teachers from half a world away. "For the first year, it's a little bit of a struggle because I'm the kind of person who misses family that easily," said Alvarado, who taught for a decade in the Philippines before moving to Arizona. But "in terms of pay, let's just say my previous pay was multiplied by eight or 10 when I got here," she said. "So having...

    The construction of Walmart’s new corporate campus in Bentonville will take years to be achieved, and is just now in the early stages of development.

Employees have been working there for the past three weeks, following the completion of a massive remodel of a 130,000-square-foot building that was once a Sam’s Club store. It was most recently a layout center for Sam’s...

    President Donald Trump’s deputies have announced they will soon cancel the work permits which were awarded to 100,000 foreign visitors under a controversial outsourcing program created by President Barack Obama. The planned November announcement of the cancellation will be a boost to millions of U.S. professionals — young and old — who lose opportunities, jobs, and salaries to the many visa-workers imported by companies and investors. Many U.S. graduates have already lost jobs and salaries because the federal government allows U.S. companies to outsource their jobs to a low-wage workforce of roughly 1.5 million imported college-graduates. The foreign workers —...

    Englewood — When businesses sell products, they need packages. And that’s where a company like Value Added Packaging comes in. The Lau Parkway box and package manufacturer is growing, planning a new research and development lab and hiring more workers. The company needs the space. It is leasing an additional 30,000 square feet across Lau from its main facility. But that leasing will end when the company expands behind its current building in 2019. In all, Value Added Packaging — sometimes called “VAP” — is expanding by some 40,000 square feet. The total value of the investment in the lab...

    President Donald Trump’s pro-American policies on immigration are successfully pressuring U.S. companies to hire American business-school graduates instead of foreign graduates. Companies “have been hiring [foreign graduates] not because they are needed, but because it is easy and they could get away with paying them less,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. She added: As soon as there is resistance from the government, they find another way, they start actually recruiting Americans and legal immigrants instead of [foreign] guest workers … [because] they want a [legally] stable worker force as a well as a cheap...
