    Florida has recovered more than 960,000 of the around 1.3 million jobs that were lost at the height of the COVID-19 outbreak, according to state officials.The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) said in a recent statement that the state has recovered 964,400 jobs of those lost when the pandemic struck last spring, which threw the economy into a tailspin and led to a sharp rise in unemployment.The Sunshine State economy now remains just over 315,000 jobs short of pre-pandemic levels, said Jerry Parrish, chief economist at the Florida Chamber of Commerce.“We still have a few to go to get...

    LA CROSSE, Wis. (CNS) — Cardinal Raymond L.

Check, executive director of the shrine in Cardinal Burke’s home diocese, relayed an announcement about the cardinal from his family on the cardinal’s official Twitter account @cardinalrlburke and on the shrine website. “Praised be Jesus Christ!” the priest said....

    Job openings in the United States surged to a record high of more than 10 million in June, while hiring lagged behind that figure by over 3 million, painting a picture of an economic recovery held back by a labor shortage as businesses struggle to find workers.The Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS), released Aug. 9, showed that the number of job vacancies jumped by 590,000 to 10.1 million on the last day of June, led by gains in professional and business services, retail trade, and accommodation and food services.“This is by far the record amount of...
  • The Delta variant is slowing office reopenings. It could slow the recovery, too

    New York (CNN Business)The planned grand reopening of offices across America is in serious doubt because of the Delta variant. In the past 24 hours, a slew of major companies have told employees they will no longer be expected back at their desks in September. Notably, that list includes BlackRock (BLK), Wells Fargo (CBEAX) and other Wall Street firms that had been eager to turn the page on the era of virtual work. The shift by these business leaders makes perfect sense. Many workers are nervous about returning to crowded offices and subway stations at a time when Covid-19 cases...

    Am looking for experiences from Freepers that have had covid-19. I have put this up one other time, Freepers are not here all of the time and browsing habits can vary. If you have already answered please disregard this post. I will publish the results from both polls, removing the top 10% and the bottom 10%. I had it with my wife and 5 kids in February. Thank you for your time and be blessed! Founded PS: I should probably do one on vaccines and reactions as well, in time.

    “Our company has had to deal with import delays due to backlogged West Coast ports, higher domestic freight costs, and a labor shortage at distribution centers that has prompted wage increases. Earlier this year, we thought, or maybe we hoped, that some of the industry wide supply-chain issues would have started to settle down by now. But that clearly hasn’t happened. In fact, the whole global supply situation seems to have gotten maybe even a little bit worse.”John Crimmins, chief financial officer of Burlington Stores Inc., 5/27/21 Crimmins’s observation summarizes how business costs are driving persistent inflation due to multiple...

    Surface Transportation Board (STB) Chairman Martin Oberman yesterday asked all Class Is to provide an update on their preparedness to meet service demand as the nation continues to recovery economically from the COVID-19 pandemic. In a May 27 letter sent to Class I chief executives, Oberman expressed concern that recent rail service problems — as reported by some shippers — might relate to a broader trend of rail labor reductions over the past several years, in addition to the furloughs and quarantines brought about by the pandemic. Oberman also asked the CEOs to provide information about the sufficiency of operating...
  • 98 Percent of the Way There: Trump's Super V-Shaped Recovery

    The U.S. economy peaked in late 2019 at $21 trillion. We are now remarkably 98 percent back to where we were before the terrible COVID-19 pandemic slammed these shores 14 months ago. This rebound is one of the outstanding U.S. achievements in history. Since June of last year, the economy has rocketed by 34 percent in quarter 3 of 2020, 4.2 percent in quarter 4 of 2020 and now 6.4 percent in the first three months of 2021. So far in this current quarter, growth is more than 10 percent.Almost no one expected this. The Federal Reserve Board, the Congressional...

    Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen cautioned Friday that the U.S. faces a “long road” to economic recovery but described the latest jobs report from the Department of Labor as an indication the country is making progress. “We knew it would be a long road back to the recovery. That’s why the legislation provided lasting support rather than just a few months of relief. We knew this would not be a 100-day battle,” Yellen said at a White House press briefing. “Today’s jobs report underscores the long haul climb back to recovery.” The U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs during the month of...

    Mayor Lori Lightfoot painted a picture of Chicago on Thursday that featured nothing but blue skies as far as the eye can see as the city recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic devastation the virus has caused. “I feel very optimistic” about Chicago’s recovery from COVID-19, Lightfoot said during a virtual conference for investors, bond buyers, financiers and developers with money to spend. The mayor said she remains determined to use this “once in generation” crisis to address the “exposed fault lines” now crisscrossing the city, which is set to reopen fully by July 4. But once the...

    President Biden is insisting that raising taxes for his multi-trillion-dollar proposals would be good for the economy as it begins to rebound from lockdowns, arguing that his $1.9 trillion COVID relief bill passed a month ago was causing the economic rebound seen today — while also urging Americans to continue their “patriotic responsibility” to wear masks outside in the waning days of the COVID crisis.

    Three years after the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act took effect, Democrats in Congress are ready to roll back some of the most critical reforms.The business tax cuts have been maligned as contrary to the interests of workers. In reality, the corporate tax cut succeeded at allowing new business investment, creating jobs, raising wages, and increasing the economy’s size.The economic history of the 2017 tax cuts should lead policymakers who are intent on raising the corporate income tax, or repealing parts of the individual tax cuts, to question their convictions.The tax cuts were intended to increase new investments in the...

    Amid reports of vaccine shortages occurring around the world, a new study (pdf) suggests that people who have already had COVID-19 should get only one shot of the mRNA vaccine to avoid possible unnecessary adverse reactions and free up supplies for those who need it more.The study, which hasn’t been peer-reviewed, evaluated vaccine reactions after receiving the first dose in 231 individuals—83 with a past infection of the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus and 148 who had never had an infection.Researchers found that both groups equally reported experiencing pain, swelling, and redness at the injection site at the time of...

    MINNEAPOLIS—Overseeing sober living homes for newly recovering drug addicts is difficult in the best of times. But the endless shutdowns have created conditions that are challenging for healthy people, let alone those who are fresh out of rehab, vulnerable, and still reeling. Matt Royce, 35, oversees seven sober-living homes in Minneapolis. All of his houses, each holding between 9 and 13 people, have been “pretty full the whole time.” No overdose deaths had occurred in his homes in almost three years, but last summer he lost two people, while another three were revived from overdoses with opioid-blocker Narcan. Depression has...

    The story that the media haven’t told is that states that have maintained longer and stricter business restrictions have been slower to recover. The unemployment rate in September was 12.6% in Nevada, 11% in California, 10.5% in Rhode Island, 10.2% in Illinois, and 9.7% in New York compared to 6.7% in Arizona, 6.4% in Georgia, 5.4% in Wisconsin and 5% in Utah. New York added 100,000 jobs last month as Gov. Andrew Cuomo finally let dine-in restaurants and gyms in New York City reopen at limited capacity. But 363,000 workers also dropped out of the labor force, which was the...

He delivered his characteristic rapid-fire speech, lauding his administration’s accomplishments, criticizing opponents, and urging supporters in Florida to vote early, including by mail.Trump arrived in Florida hours after his physician, Sean Conley, confirmed that the president had tested negative for two consecutive days for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) virus, commonly known as the coronavirus.
