Bringing pharmaceutical production back to the United States would create more than 800,000 American jobs, economists say. A study by the Coalition for a Prosperous America’s Steven Byers and Jeff Ferry reveals that the U.S. could add hundreds of thousands of good-paying manufacturing jobs for American citizens and reduce its dependence on foreign countries like China if it reshored all pharmaceutical production. “The US is dependent on China for over one-third of all the antibiotics we import, and in the case of many generic drugs, we are completely dependent on China,” the economists wrote. “We found that an ambitious but...

Attention Mr. President: There Are Shovel-Ready Jobs At The Border.

If ever there was a need for a government-sponsored temporary employment project now is the time. President Trump should authorize a shovel-ready jobs program for those Americans who need help to finish building the wall along the US-Mexican border. This would do two things that are needed. The first of which is to address the national security issue of stopping the corona virus from entering the country from the south. The second is to provide economic support for those who need work. It would seem to me that with all of the compassion coming forth from democrat governors all across...

The odds of slipping into a recession are increasingly likely as the global coronavirus outbreak puts acute stress on the U.S. economy. That could be bad news for American workers, who may lose jobs by the millions in a downturn. For those workers who don’t receive severance pay, the financial impact could be especially devastating. “It’s really hard to predict how it’s going to play out,” said Wayne Outten, founder and chair of Outten & Golden, an employment law firm in New York, of the coronavirus fallout. “The ripple effect can be dramatic in so many different industries.” Financial markets...

Lefty widow of Steve Jobs preaches it's 'wrong' to accumulate wealth

Lefty billionaires expect us to lap up their every word. So now we have Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of Steve Jobs, preaching to us about the badness of accumulated wealth. According to TheBlaze: "It's not right for individuals to accumulate a massive amount of wealth that's equivalent to millions and millions of other people combined," Jobs told the Times. "There's nothing fair about that. We saw that at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries with the Rockefellers and Carnegies and Mellons and Fords of the world. That kind of accumulation of wealth is dangerous for a society. It...

‘Moderate’ Biden backs radical California regulation that destroyed freelance jobs

Washington Examiner ^ | March 9, 2020 | Brad Polumbo
As the Democratic Party coalesces around 2020 candidate Joe Biden as an alternative to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, onlookers have taken it for granted that the former vice president represents a “moderate” Democratic option. While this is true, it’s only due to the radical extent of Sanders’s far-left socialism; Biden himself is no centrist. In fact, he’s quite left-wing on a number of fronts, and his stance backing job-killing California regulations is just the latest example. In a weekend tweet, the Democratic front-runner touted his support for AB 5, an extremely controversial California regulation that limited companies’ ability to hire...

DHS Secretary Chad Wolf Approves 35K H-2B Foreign Workers to Take U.S. Jobs

Acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Chad Wolf announced he will allow American businesses to import an additional 35,000 foreign workers to take non-agricultural jobs through the H-2B visa program. Every year, U.S. companies are allowed to import 66,000 low-skilled H-2B foreign workers to take blue-collar, non-agricultural jobs. For some time, the H-2B visa program has been used by businesses to bring in cheaper, foreign workers and has contributed to blue-collar Americans having their wages undercut. On Thursday, Wolf confirmed that DHS will ensure American businesses can hire an additional 35,000 H-2B foreign visa workers for non-agricultural jobs in...

Can the Coronavirus-Panic-Creating Media be Sued for Closed Businesses and Lost Jobs?

The deliberate panic created over the coronavirus is not victimless. Far from it. When the radioactive dust settles from this orchestrated panic-strategy, potentially hundreds of billions will have been lost, thousands of businesses closed, and millions of employees fired. When the coronavirus first reared its ugly head, many in the media instantly saw it as a cheap and easy way to increase clicks, newspaper sales, viewers, listeners, and most especially Ad revenue. In the guise of “informing the public,” they intended to run scare headlines and stories to spike attention to their sites. And run them, they did. One of...

Alfredo Ortiz of Job Creators Network writes in USA Today that amid the positive economic indicators in the country, about 6.4 million jobs are open nationwide. In order to fill these jobs, high schools and colleges need to prioritize skills-based education and training: Millions of available jobs are in middle-class professions that pay roughly $50,000 a year or more, according to Labor Department estimates. These include 600,000 construction and manufacturing jobs, whose median annual full-time pay is $47,000 and $49,000, as well as over a million health care and social assistance positions, whose median annual pay is $45,000. . ....

NEW JERSEY — More retailers are leaving the state – leaving more than 1,200 layoffs in their wake as New Jersey continues to deal with what's been called a nationwide "retail apocalypse." At least 24 stores also have announced in recent days that they're planning to close very soon. The news comes after a number of major national chains had already announced closings in New Jersey and elsewhere (see lists below). Many of them are popular chains, too, that either ran into bankruptcy or decided to downsize stores "in order to preserve the whole company and save the jobs of...

Leave it to the liberal media to take the good news of the February jobs report and try to throw cold water on it as quickly as possible by pounding on coronavirus fears. MSNBC's Maddow Blog, NBC News, The New York Times and The Washington Post all wrote liberal spin stories on the latest jobs report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. The job numbers showed that the economy added a whopping 273,000 nonfarm payroll jobs, smashing expectations. MSNBC's Maddowblog headlined their March 6 report “Great jobs report doesn't fully reflect coronavirus outbreak,” while NBC News went with, “Ahead of...

After a year of mostly mediocre job-creation numbers, the US economy has regained its 2017 feel over the last four months. Today’s job report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that the US added 273,000 jobs in February, the third time in the last four months that job creation has exceeded 250K. The unemployment mark went back to 3.5% as labor-force numbers settled back down after a notable shift last month: Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 273,000 in February, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 3.5 percent, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today....

The American economy added 273,000 jobs in February, the feds said Friday, indicating strong hiring growth before the coronavirus outbreak slammed the US. The Department of Labor’s monthly jobs report far outpaced economists’ expectations that non-farm payrolls would grow by 175,000 jobs. The unemployment rate ticked back down to 3.5 percent, matching a 50-year low. While the latest numbers show the deadly coronavirus epidemic has not yet hammered the labor market, the worst may be yet to come as the outbreak reduces travel, disrupts supply chains and roils the stock market. The virus started to spread in the US late...

Sanders presidency could start with $300 billion U.S. jobs program: adviser

Reuters ^ | February 27, 2020 | Howard Schneider
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A Bernie Sanders presidency could begin modestly with a roughly $300 billion federal jobs guarantee before pushing for trillions of dollars in new spending on health care, the environment and infrastructure, says a key adviser to the U.S. Democratic front-runner. Sanders, a U.S. senator from Vermont and self-described democratic socialist, has promised a sweeping transformation of the U.S. economy if he wrests the keys to the White House from President Donald Trump in the November 2020 election. A jobs guarantee, which would see the federal government ensure employment for anyone who wanted to work, would be a...

Cormann said Australia’s government will work to set new long-term plans addressing greenhouse gas emissions ahead of yet another global climate summit in Glasgow year, however it won’t pursue any net-zero emissions policies that hurt workers in key economic areas.

Feb 13 (Reuters) - Wells Fargo & Co is planning to eliminate about 700 workers in Manila, Philippines, and move a portion of these roles to India that already houses nearly 12,000 tech employees, the U.S. bank's spokesman said on Thursday. The eliminations of the staff was earlier reported by Bloomberg, which also said the lender is telling about 650 of its tech workers in the United States that they will be required to relocate to a bigger market to keep their jobs. The bank laid off more than 200 employees in its U.S. lending divisions in 2019, as it...

The Pro’s and Con’s to Contracting Overseas Today, there are hundreds of thousands of men and women working overseas on various contracts and making good money, probably two to three times what they can make in the United States. Naturally, the best-paying jobs are in high-threat environments such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, etc. Yes, these places can be dangerous. Since 2001 over 3,300 civilian contractors have been killed, and almost 95,000 were injured in Iraq and Afghanistan alone. The vast majority were third-country nationals, or TCNs, from places like Peru, Colombia, Philippines, Fiji, Uganda, Kenya, Egypt, Pakistan and so on....

Democrat Sen. Amy Klobuchar is touting her support for amnesty and easy migration of blue-collar workers — but she is hiding her support for laws that allow employers to hire foreign graduates for the white-collar jobs needed by Klobuchar’s college graduate progressive voters. “We know that immigrants don’t diminish America, they are America,” she told a February 13 event in Nevada organized by the League of United Latin American Citizens. […] Klobuchar has a long history of support for white-collar migration, despite the impact on college voters in her home state. In 2015, for example, Klobuchar backed a bill by...
