  • Men need to be working — and fewer and fewer of them are

    Washington Examiner ^ | November 30, 2022 | Matt Lamb
    Men benefit from going to work every day to provide for themselves and their families. Yet surveys and studies have consistently shown that millions of able-bodied men are not working or looking for work. Consider that in 1962 , about 97% of men ages 25 to 54 were working or looking for work. Today, that number is closer to 89%. This lack of working men hurts women too; one survey found that 78% of women picked “a steady job” as the most important characteristic of a potential husband. Women weighted this characteristic higher than sharing the same beliefs about religion...
  • Why going into work five days a week is a thing of the past

    We’re never going back to the office – at least not five days a week. That’s the contention of Anne Helen Petersen, the author of “Out of Office: Unlocking the Power and Potential of Hybrid Work.” “You can either try to figure out flex arrangements now or you can battle your employees for the next 5 to 10 years and then pay a consultant a lot of money to help you figure out what you should have started figuring out five to 10 years ago,” she told me in the latest episode of my podcast “Downside Up.” Petersen believes that...
  • Georgia to Become First State to Require Work for Medicaid Coverage

    PJ Media ^ | 11/20/2022 | Rick Moran
    The state of Georgia is preparing to offer a limited number of lower-income people Medicaid coverage in exchange for 80 hours of work or volunteering a month. The Biden administration surprisingly decided not to appeal a federal court ruling that granted Georgia the right to try the work-for-Medicaid program — a program first approved during the Trump administration for 12 states but later canceled by Biden. The program will actually cost significantly more than standard Medicaid coverage and the program’s strict requirements won’t cover a lot of Georgians. But Kemp believes it’s worth doing. “The best-case scenario is that some...

    Connecticut, Illinois and New York joined California on Friday in ordering nonessential workers to remain at home to slow the spread of coronavirus, which means more than 1 in 5 Americans live in a state under general stay-at-home orders
  • Oh, the Humanity! Elon Triggers the Left With His Most Evil Twitter Move Yet

    Red State. ^ | November 12, 2022 | Nick Arama
    It’s been hilarious watching the left have a meltdown about Elon Musk taking over Twitter and bringing in a lot of changes. One of the things that he seems intent on doing is making the company a more viable and efficient workplace. I wrote last month about how it was more like a spa at the headquarters than a work environment, where people could work remotely if they chose to but if they came in they had meditation rooms, yoga areas, free food, and red wine on tap. ... That’s likely one of the reasons that the company wasn’t making...

    On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) claimed that Republicans are the ones who want the Federal Reserve to engage in interest rate hikes that will “put millions of people out of work.” Warren said, “I just want to say here, it’s the Republicans who are trying to keep 43 million Americans from getting their student loan debt canceled. It is Republicans who want to repeal the laws that we just got in place to cut the cost of insulin and to let Medicare negotiate drug prices. It’s the Republicans who want to see us raise...

COSTELLO: WAIT A MINUTE. Is it 5.6% or 23%? ABBOTT: 5.6% are unemployed. 23% are out of work. COSTELLO: If you are out of work you are unemployed. ABBOTT: No, Biden said you can't count the "Out of Work" as the unemployed....

    The world still overflows with opportunities however we are lacking committed takers. Those who are willing to explore the opportunities as opposed to wait for them to show up at the door. It seems like, for the new generation, working hard has turned into the enemy of dreams and a roadblock to life’s journey. The anti-work phenomenon, quiet quitting, is encouraging people to withdraw privately and silently. It is an utterly un-American act that will create an avalanche of self-destruction at a critical time for our nation. It is a movement that cannot be stopped by force but may ultimately...

    Japan's armies of "salarymen" were famous for spending endless hours at the office. Now one tech giant is trying to make the experience more cuddly by allowing in pets. Fujitsu Ltd, which makes everything from air conditioners to super computers, opened an experimental "dog office" in July at one of its buildings in Kawasaki, near Tokyo. After teleworking throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Yuka Hatagaki was one Fujitsu employee lured back to the office a few times each month along with her five-year-old Maltese-poodle cross, Noel.

    A reader writes: I live in a small city which doesn’t have many employment opportunities. The city has a high unemployment rate, and it’s rare to find work that isn’t in shops, farming, etc. Six years ago, the city council launched a project to fund start-up business ideas for marginalized individuals, including those with disabilities. One of these ideas has become extremely successful. It’s essentially four neurodivergent eccentrics who live every day like it’s Halloween. They are commissioned by various organizations around the state to create bespoke services and goods. They’ve attracted something of a following with projects coming in...

    Move over rage quitting, “quiet quitting” is the latest workplace phenomenon. It may sound like the act of someone silently resigning, but it actually refers to the rejection of “hustle culture” — the expectation to go above and beyond in your job, rather than simply doing the requirements of the job. It’s a term that has gained traction since a wave of TikTok posts recently emerged from people who consider themselves quiet quitters. TikTok creator Zaid Khan, @zkchillin, posted on TikTok about his own discovery of the term in late July — a video that went viral. In the video...

    "J.B. Pritzker, you were born with a silver spoon in your mouth," Bailey said. "You inherited billions of dollars from your family. You have millions stashed away on islands that most people have never heard of. Yet, you have never woken up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat worrying about keeping a job." The Republican candidate also said the incumbent Democrat has never experienced a hard day's work. "You have never worked a day in your life, and you will criticize me about how I run my farm. How dare you?" Bailey said. "You are the...

    It looks like Covid-mania is making a comeback at local military base. I won't say where, but the HPCON level just went up to Charlie as of 0001 hours Wednesday morning. Teleworking is being authorized again, and for those of us who aren't "vaccinated" we have to start weekly testing again. Oh, and everyone has to mask up no matter their vaccination status. All in an election year. Hmmmmm..........
  • Argentina’s Government Collapsing, People Refuse to Work Amid Major Subsidy Cuts Only 43 percent of adults have a job, as inflation soars above 60 percent

    Protests have erupted in Buenos Aires over the past 90 days and continue to build inside the capital as residents battle with their center-left government over sizeable amendments to social programs. Cuts to subsidies in the energy sector based on household income already began in June. Other subsidies, including the country’s notorious welfare program, are also on the chopping block, triggering thousands of angry residents to take to the streets. State-sponsored aid for civilians has soared in the past 20 years, leaving 22 million Argentinians dependent on some form of government assistance. However, for the 1.2 million members dependent on...

    PROVIDENCE, RI — According to the results of a new study conducted by Brown University, exactly 100% of work meetings ever held in all of human history, across all industries and sectors, have been entirely unnecessary. Researchers followed careful criteria while observing real-life business meetings to understand what constitutes a successful meeting. Successful meetings, they said, would qualify as a valid use of time. Researchers took detailed notes on employee engagement, follow through on meeting action plans, and whether or not meetings were actually about something. In all meetings observed, none met the criteria of a successful meeting and were...

    As college and university classes of 2022 head out into the real world this month, they’re poised to take workplaces by a storm — and bring their politics with them. In an era of tense culture wars, this newest crop of recent graduates could emerge as a potential HR disaster for corporate America. A recent survey of 15,000 members of Gen Z reveals just how willing America’s youngest workers are to bring activism into the office. The data shows that during their first few years in the office, Gen Z has eagerly infused their generational ethics into the workplace and...

    To Jonathan Pruiett, it just didn't make sense. A geospatial analyst who updates Google maps for a living, Pruiett had been called back to his company's offices in Bothell, Washington, five days a week, starting June 6. Like many on his team, Pruiett had only worked remotely, having started the job in the pandemic. He'd adapted well to it, finding efficiencies such as multitasking during virtual meetings, using the time to process data. And yet, now he was being told to report to office. Anyone who failed to report within three days of the return date would be processed as...

    As employers across the country look for ways to fill gaps in the workforce, many are increasingly turning to automated technology and robots for help. While the turn to automation is certainly not a new phenomenon, it has become a balm for companies trying to meet demand in a recent tough market, according to the Wall Street Journal. Robot orders are up 40% in the first quarter of 2022 and 21% overall in 2021, according to the Automation Development Association, putting the industry value at an estimated $1.6 billion. “People want to cut the workforce,” the CEO of Ametek Inc....
