  3. KOAM-Local: Posted: July 15, 2021 Kansas implements changes for people to receive unemployment benefits TOPEKA, Kan. — The Kansas state legislature passed the “My Reemployment Plan.” It’s aimed at getting out-of-work Kansans back in the workforce. People receiving benefits for three continuous weeks must submit their résumé through Kansasworks.com. They also must complete and submit a job search plan form. koamnewsnow.com/kansas-implements-changes-for-people-to-receive-unemployment-benefits I had thought compelling people to seek employment as a condition of continuing to receive unemployment benefits, was considered improper and revoked as prejudicial or something...
  4. After the Coronavirus Relief Bill was essentially a done deal, House Democrats returned to Washington with a list of add-ons they wanted included in the bill, many of which had little or nothing to do with financially assisting individuals or essential services effected by the Coronavirus. One such item was a 25 Million Dollar bail-out package to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts... Now after the Kennedy Center has been gifted millions of dollars from the Coronavirus Relief package, the Kennedy Center announces they will be furloughing more than half of the full time staff for the Kennedy Center. "In order to stretch the Center's finances as long as possible, we must take immediate action to change our expense structure and preserve cash. In addition to drawing from the $25 million stimulus funding and the Center's existing $10 million line of credit, we must furlough approximately 60% of the Kennedy Center's full-time administrative staff beginning April 6 through at least May 10, 2020," a message on the center's website read. "These measures are apart from the 725 hourly and part-time employees already impacted." Now just to clear thing up a bit, furloughed employees usually retain their health care and life insurance benefits and have the expectation (but not guarantee they will be reemployed by their employers. Employers are not required to pay furloughed employees but furloughed employees can apply for unemployment benefits but are restricted from pursuing temporary employment while they are furloughed. They are allowed to seek other full time employment which would effectively end their employment (thus their health and life insurance benefits) with their former employer. Kennedy Center employees not furloughed (roughly 40%) will retain their current pay and benefits, presumably being paid from the $25 million Coronavirus Relief Bill's largess... Newsweek: THE KENNEDY CENTER ANNOUNCES PLANS TO FURLOUGH 60 PERCENT OF STAFF DESPITE $25 MILLION STIMULUS GRANT The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts has announced plans to furlough more than half of its full-time administrative staff due to "overwhelming financial losses" incurred during the coronavirus pandemic despite receiving $25 million in government aid from last week's economic stimulus package. Citing "overwhelming financial losses" as a result of performance cancellations amid the pandemic, the Kennedy Center insisted its federal allotment and $10 million endowment would not sufficiently cover the cost of its complete employee payroll. https://www.newsweek.com/kennedy-center-announces-plans-furlough-60-percent-staff-despite-25-million-stimulus-grant New York Post: Kennedy Center boss tells staff $25M coronavirus handout won’t save them WASHINGTON — Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts executives lobbied lawmakers for a $25 million handout in the massive coronavirus stimulus package signed into law by President Trump last week but were planning to lay-off staff regardless, leaked audio of an internal conference call reveals. In the March 26 call, KCPA President Deborah Rutter told more than 200 employees at the Washington, D.C. cultural institution to brace for lay-offs, pay cuts and furloughs despite receiving a large carve-out in the $2 trillion emergency economic bailout for Americans and businesses financially devastated by the outbreak, which made headlines last week. Rutter revealed how the organization deployed a lobbyist to push Capitol Hill lawmakers to include them but said it would not help with staff retention because they were already running out of cash, according to the audio first reported by One America News’ Jack Posobiec. https://nypost.com/2020/03/31/kennedy-center-boss-tells-staff-coronavirus-handout-wont-save-them/
  5. MSN: Broncos to debut beer-pouring robot at upcoming game Artificial intelligence figures to be a major part of the future, as robots can potentially make our lives easier by handling many different manual tasks in everyday life. The Broncos are apparently aware of that, as they’re taking a forward-thinking approach to pouring drinks at Saturday’s game against the Browns at Mile High Stadium. Apparently, the team will be using a robot known as the Bud Light Bot to pour beer for fans located in the stadium’s United Club East level. The robot will pick up the cup and hold it over a bottoms-up machine that will dispense the beer, as you can see in the video below. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/broncos-to-debut-beer-pouring-robot-at-upcoming-game But not really that big of a big when you think about it... They've had "pouring machines" for several years, soft drink dispensers and even those machines that dispense that funny tasting coffee and hot chocolate in hospital and bus station lobbies, this is just a fancified version of those machines and even without the robotic arm will probably work just as well. The Machine revolution is coming, but fortunately it is still less expensive to hire real people to do some of the work machines can probably do presently but realistically I look for that to change to hapapen in the not too distant future.
  6. CNN: CNNMoney Reports: American workers are in high demand (VIDEO) https://money.cnn.com/video/news/economy/2018/08/03/july-jobs-report.cnnmoney MarketWatch: U.S. gains 157,000 jobs in July; unemployment falls to 3.9% WASHINGTON -- The U.S. added 157,000 new jobs in July to nudge the unemployment rate below 4% again in another solid showing for a surging economy. The increase was below the 194,000 MarketWatch estimate, but hiring in June and May was stronger than previously reported. The unemployment rate, meanwhile, dipped to 3.9% from 4%. The average wage paid to American workers rose by 7 cents, or 0.3%, to $27.05 an hour. The yearly rate of pay increases was unchanged at 2.7%. Employment gains for June and May were revised up by a combined 59,000, the Labor Department said Friday. The government said 248,000 new jobs were created in June instead of 213,000. May's increase was raised to 268,000 from 244,000. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/us-gains-157000-jobs-in-july-unemployment-falls-to-39-2018-08-03 BLS: THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION — JULY 2018 https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000
  7. Yahoo News: Trump signs sweeping tax overhaul, sealing major {Trump Campaign Promise} victory Washington - US President Donald Trump on Friday signed into law a sweeping overhaul of the US tax code, two days after the Republican plan was adopted by Congress in a major political victory. https://www.yahoo.com/news/trump-signs-sweeping-tax-overhaul-sealing-major-victory-164804948.html According to the "tax calculator" provided by CNN in an article about the then unsigned tax bill legislation, it appears no one will be negatively impacted by this tax overhaul with every income level from low income ($0-$20K to $75-$125K) receiving a lower tax rate for the first year and an after tax income boost from 1%-3% depending on how a person files their taxes ( itemized - not itemized, joint, single or head of household) for about 7 consecutive years following this new tax legislation. After about 7 years there is projected to be a taxable income hit of about .1% to .3% across the board for all low and medium income levels (for every $1,000 earned, their after tax income will fall by $1 at 1%)... It seems the only thing we have to wait for is how (or if) the sweeping changes in the tax code changes the business model and employee payroll markets. Already there are articles about some major companies increasing salaries and annual bonuses from the recent changes: Fortune: These Companies Are Promising More Money to Employees After the Passage of the GOP Tax Bill AT&T, Comcast will be giving $1,000 bonuses to all union-represented, non-management and front-line management employees (about 200,000 employees). Boeing also says that it will earmark $300 million for “employee-related and charitable investment” as a result of the tax cuts to “support our heroes, our homes, and our future” According to CNBC, Fifth Third Bancorp plans to “raise its minimum hourly wage for all employees to $15, and distribute a one-time bonus of $1,000 for more than 13,500 employees” following passage of the bill. http://fortune.com/2017/12/20/gop-tax-bill-att-boeing/ USA Today: Sinclair joins companies promising tax reform bill bonuses to employees Add Sinclair, the nation's largest TV broadcaster, to the companies promising a $1,000 bonus to employees with the successful passage of the tax reform bill. The Hunt Valley, Md.-headquartered Sinclair Broadcast Group, which has 173 TV stations and reaches more than 38% of the U.S., said Friday that it will pay a special $1,000 bonus to its nearly 9,000 full-time and part-time employees, excluding senior level executives. Wells Fargo said it would boost its employees' minimum wage to $15 per hour, up 11% from its current hourly rate of $13.50, once the law was passed. https://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2017/12/22/sinclair-joins-companies-promising-tax-reform-bill-bonuses-employees/976403001/ And hopefully other major companies will be following suit within the next couple of years now that the tax penalty on U.S. operated corporations don't appear to be as punitive as it has been. Will this legislation see American companies consider less outsourcing, future higher employee wages and bonuses and even more American businesses returning to this country from their overseas tax shelters? How all of this will eventually play out and what if any benefit businesses and average American workers might see as a result of these tax reforms remains to be seen for the most part, but already the corporate and business tax environment seems to have become less 'hostile' than it was perceived to be at any time during the Obama administration and any company that reaps the benefits from this tax reform and doesn't return at least a part of that to their business infrastructure and/or employees, (some companies held by liberals have already indicated they won't be participating in pass on employee rewards from the tax overhaul, in protest of president Trump) I think should definitely be put on Santa's naughty list ~
  8. CNN published an article stating there are over 6 million jobs available for those with the skills that want to work.... and predictably tried to turn it into a Trump slam and political rally to save DREAMERS from being deported ~ Their argument is that American won't work and the kids who were brought into this country illegally have the skills and the motivation to work those jobs. My question is why can't we make an attempt give American kids and workers those same skills (trade school) and try to find a way to 'encourage' them to work (perhaps by making public assistance less attractive than going to work, for those who can work - but refuse to do so)? Anyway, here's the article. CNN: U.S. job openings hit record high, nearly 6.2 million If you need a job, there are millions open right now. Job openings in the United States reached a record high in July at 6.17 million, according to Labor Department data published Tuesday. Employers continue to struggle with finding workers to fill all the open positions. Such a high number of job openings is a mix of good and bad news. The good: Employers are hiring. When the Great Recession was at its worst in 2009, job openings fell to 2.2 million, an all-time low. The bad: Employers can't find anyone. From farms to construction sites to small businesses, employers report mass shortages of workers, surveys show. Many experts say unemployed Americans don't have the skills needed. Others argue that employers aren't willing to pay up and offer higher wages to attract better workers. To help fill the gap, employers have relied on foreign-born workers for years as millions of Baby Boomers retire. Last year, there were 27 million foreign-born workers in the United States, according to the Labor Department. Job openings cut across American industries in July. Manufacturing had nearly 400,000 openings; construction 232,000; education and health 1.1 million; finance and insurance 270,000; retail 625,000. "The demand for labor is there but finding willing and skillful warm bodies to fill them remains a challenge," says Peter Boockvar, chief market strategist at the Lindsey Group, an investment firm. http://money.cnn.com/2017/09/12/news/economy/job-openings-record-high/index.html?iid=surge-story-summary
  9. MSN/CNBC: Dozens fired after skipping work to participate in 'A Day Without Immigrants' protests As numerous restaurant employees were given leave on Thursday to march in "A Day Without Immigrants" protests, others returned to their posts Friday to discover that they were out of a job. Across the U.S. employers fired hundreds of protesters who skipped work to participate in rallies. Eighteen employees at Bradley Coatings, a company specializing in industrial coatings, were let go after not showing up for work, according to an NBC affiliate. The company noted in a statement that the employees were not terminated for attending the protests but for being absent. "This past Wednesday night, certain employees of BCI informed their leadership that they would not be at work the following day," the company said in a statement. "Because of the time-sensitive nature of the jobs these employees were assigned to, all employees were told that they would need to show up for work or they would be terminated. On Thursday, the majority of BCI's employees fulfilled their obligations to our clients, but eighteen employees did not. Regretfully, and consistent with its prior communication to all its employees, BCI had no choice but to terminate these individuals." Twenty-one people were fired for missing work at Encore Boat Builders in Lexington, South Carolina. At least 31 workers were let go from Colorado-based JVS Masonry for not showing up Thursday. A dozen employees at I Don't Care Bar and Grill in Oklahoma were also fired for not notifying their employer that they would be taking the day off. Twenty-five workers at Ben's Kosher Delicatessen Restaurant and Caterers in Long Island, New York were fired, according to Telemundo 47. The restaurant's Yelp page was inundated with negative reviews following the incident, with reviewers expressing their displeasure with the company's decision to fire the employees. http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/dozens-fired-after-skipping-work-to-participate-in-a-day-without-immigrants-protests/ar-AAn8DMF? http://nbc4i.com/2017/02/18/workers-fired-after-participating-in-a-day-without-immigrants-strike/
