    As vaccinations and relaxed health guidelines make returning to the office a reality for more companies, there seems to be a disconnect between managers and their workers over remote work.A good example of this is a recent op-ed written by the CEO of a Washington, D.C., magazine that suggested workers could lose benefits like health care if they insist on continuing to work remotely as the COVID-19 pandemic recedes. The staff reacted by refusing to publish for a day. While the CEO later apologized, she isn’t alone in appearing to bungle the transition back to the office after over a...
  • De Blasio says NYC needs $7 billion in federal aid or ‘kiss the recovery goodbye’

    Mayor Bill de Blasio rolled out a proposed budget Thursday that shaved $6 billion from his initial request and begged the feds for a $7.4 billion injection of aid, linking New York’s recovery from the coronavirus to any national rebound. “Everyone wants a restart, everyone wants our economy to recover,” de Blasio said. “But, there has to be a really clear understanding, if we can’t provide the basics for our people then you can kiss the recovery goodbye.” He added: “If we are not strong, if our people are not safe, then this nation cannot recover.” De Blasio, who is...

    I have deliberately tried not to read the articles and comments of the last couple of days since President Trump’s announcement on the deal to end the government shutdown. The reason being was the kind of negative comments and wailing that the President had caved and no longer deserved our support. I flatly reject that argument. None of can truly know the immense pressure the President was under to find a way to end this imbroglio. I, like many, had hoped that the President could tough it out and get the Border Wall Funding that is needed. The truth is...

    Donald Trump is a one-man basket of deplorables. He is a braggart and a liar. He is a bully and a demagogue. He is an ignoramus and a deadbeat, a chiseler and either a sincere racist or an insincere one, and his love for himself is matched only by my loathing of him. He is about to be president of the United States. A constitutional coup may be in the offing. Since winning the election, Trump has not moderated his behavior. He still behaves like a brat — his childish tweet zinging Arnold Schwarzenegger for failing to get Trumpian ratings...

    SCHUMER: Report's of Russia's Interference In The Election Should Shake Us To The Core Akin Oyedele. Incoming Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Saturday that he and Republican colleagues would call for a congressional investigation into Russia's reported involvement in the election. The Washington Post and The New York Times reported Friday that a secret CIA presentation shown to lawmakers revealed that the Russian government interfered with the election to try to help President-elect Donald Trump win. According to the Post, intelligence officials identified people with connections to the Russian government who they say handed thousands of hacked emails and...

    Sounds like the big sell-out is coming. Oh well. The voters did what we could. If Trump sells out, it's not our fault.— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter) December 2, 2016

    I am ecstatic for Carrier employees! Their bosses just decided to keep shop onshore. What a relief for hundreds of workers. Merry Christmas Indiana! We don't yet know terms of the public/private deal that was cut to make the company stay, but let's hope every business is equally incentivized to keep Americans working in America. Foundational to our exceptional nation's sacred private property rights, a business must have freedom to locate where it wishes. In a free market, if a business makes a mistake (including a marketing mistake that perhaps Carrier executives made), threatening to move elsewhere claiming efficiency's sake,...

    Teddy bears, Play-Doh and coloring books are staples of nursery schools, but now they are showing up on college campuses to help distraught students cope with the election of a president they don’t like. Around the nation, students are turning to the tools of toddlers as a bizarre form of therapy in the wake of Donald Trump's election last week. Colleges and universities are encouraging students to cry, cuddle with puppies and sip hot chocolate to soothe their fragile psyches, an approach some critics say would be funny if it weren't so alarming. “This is an extreme reaction from millennials...
