    Despite a federal judge declaring President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate unconstitutional, Penn State University will keep its Jan. 4 deadline requiring employees to get vaccinated, and some employees who choose not to get vaccinated will be given education and counseling.“Many of you know (the mandate) is being challenged in the courts so we don’t know the outcome of that process yet, but we are planning around it prevailing, and so implementing that mandate,” Penn State Provost Nicholas P. Jones said Tuesday in the University Faculty Senate meeting. “We’ve got to prepare because there’s not a lot of runway between now...

    The Biden administration is reportedly considering paying out hundreds of thousands of dollars to migrant families separated at the southern border during the Trump administration, about $1 billion in total. Officials from the departments of Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, and Justice have proposed paying each person $450,000, or nearly $1 million per two-person family, to settle claims about the lasting traumatic and psychological effects of being torn apart as a result of former President Donald Trump’s zero-tolerance policy, the Wall Street Journal reported Thursday afternoon.

    A London hotel repurposed into a lab is preparing to be the first in the world to infect humans with Covid. The Whitechapel Hotel in the East End is hosting a ground-breaking trial that took more than a year to be set up. Volunteers prepared to see how they fare against the virus will be paid about £3,000 to £4,000 ($4,137 to $5,516) in a tax-free reimbursement. They will stay in 19 rooms for about two weeks complete with TVs and PlayStations to keep them entertained. The former textile factory is now decked out with warning signs near the en...

    The NBA is not playing around when it comes to getting players vaccinated. The NBA announced on Wednesday that it will withhold payment from unvaccinated players who miss games due to local vaccine mandates. While the NBA has not mandated the vaccine itself, cities that require the vaccine to enter public spaces will not allow unvaccinated players inside the basketball court. “Any player who elects not to comply with local vaccination mandates will not be paid for games that he misses,” Mike Bass, the NBA’s executive vice president of communications, told media outlets in a statement on Wednesday. Under the...

    President Joe Biden berated American border patrol agents for using horses to confront migrants crossing into the United States on the Southern border, vowing they would be punished. “To see people treated like they did, horses running them over and people getting strapped, it’s outrageous I promise you those people will pay,” Biden said, despite no publicly available evidence to back up his claims.

    The low rate of vaccination compliance by New York’s finest has lame duck Mayor Bill de Blasio threatening to withhold pay checks from the police and other city workers. Under the mayor’s mandate, all city workers must be vaccinated or be tested weekly for the disease. That order goes into effect on Monday,with an estimated 340,000 city workers under its guidelines. “If someone, again, does not follow that mandate, that’s true, eventually, they’re not going to be paid, obviously,” de Blasio said in a press conference on Thursday. The mayor has long had a contentious relationship with NY police, who...

    Average pay for restaurant and grocery workers rose above $15 an hour for the first time, according to Labor Department data reviewed by The Washington Post. The Labor Department reported that in June, the most recent month where data is available, non-managerial restaurant workers earned an average of $15.31 an hour, which is a more than 10 percent increase from the $13.86 hourly wage workers were taking home before the pandemic, the Post noted. Grocery store workers took home on average $15.04 an hour in June, which was up seven percent from when the pandemic began.

    Taylor Swift’s return to No. 1 on Billboard’s 2020 Money Makers list is one of the few unsurprising results of a ranking that holds many surprises. A year with little touring resulted in many of rock and country music’s regular road warriors giving up their spots to artists with strong 2020 streaming and physical sales performances — many of them hip-hop acts.It’s also no surprise that the dearth of live revenue led to a precipitous decline in the paychecks of music’s top earners, who collectively took home $387 million in 2020, down from $969 million in 2019. Even Swift, that...

    As more and more states start easing pandemic restrictions, restaurants large and small are grappling with a widespread problem: hiring employees. Owners and managers from New York, California, Washington, and Chicago told The Epoch Times hiring woes have become a nightmare amid a litany of other challenges like indoor occupancy rules. They say the federal unemployment bonuses handed out during the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic incentivized people to stay home instead of working.

    Biden nominee for Justice Department owns up to $1 million in auto parts manufacturer President Joe Biden's nominee for a top Justice Department post is a longtime advocate for raising the minimum wage to $15, but she owns up to $1 million in stock in a company chaired by her father that pays its Mexican workforce as little as $1.30 an hour. Vanita Gupta—whose net worth of between $42 and $187 million makes her the Biden administration's wealthiest nominee—owns at least $500,000 in Aptiv PLC, an international auto parts manufacturer chaired by her father.

    Almost all, if not all, Federal workers are receiving FULL pay and benefits while on lockdown at home while doing no work at all. It is a fact that IRS workers are receiving full pay while most of them are at home not working at all. The media has produced almost no stories (can't find any in a search) on this subject for some reason or another.

    San Francisco teachers will be paid for full-time work but only be required to work four hours a day during the coronavirus closures, according to a labor agreement approved this week. The part-time work schedule was also adopted by other districts across the state, including Los Angeles, San Diego and Oakland, although many others continue to require teachers to work a full day, which is typically up to 7.5 hours.

    Boston Metro ^ | Dec. 8, 2019 | Becca Glasser-Baker
    A new report shows that the wage gap between men and women in Boston is substantial. On average, women in the Greater Boston area make 70 cents for every dollar a white man makes. It has been reported that this is the largest gap since the previous analysis since 2017. The 2017 study found that women in the Greater Boston area earn 76 cents per every dollar men earn. When stratified, the situation is significantly worse for black and Latina women.

    I’ve created a new award, “The Dumbest Tweet of the Week,” on my weekly podcast. A recent winner is Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), an aspiring presidential nominee. Gillibrand has come under attack from voices ranging from Dr. Alveda King to the Washington Post opinion page for equating historical racism with people’s wanting to protect the life of the unborn. That illogical snap in her synaptic transmission, as ridiculous as it might have been, is not what earned her the award for Twitter lunacy. Gillibrand’s winning entry was this: “Here’s an idea: If you win 13-0 — the most goals for...
