    The #MeToo and Time’s Up movements have brought huge attention to the challenges women face at work, but a new survey finds that 60% of male managers say they’re uncomfortable mentoring, working one-on-one or socializing with a woman. According to the survey, released by and SurveyMonkey, that’s a 33% increase from last year. Senior-level men also say they are 12 times more likely to be hesitant about one-on-one meetings with a junior woman than they are a junior man, nine times more likely to be hesitant to travel with a junior woman for work than a junior man, and...

    A college professor in Georgia is drawing criticism for his online comments about illegal immigrants, including his contention that people in the U.S. illegally can be a drain on the nation’s economy. “If you are going to reward illegal immigrants, there will be more illegal immigrants,” Fang Zhou, an associate professor of history at Georgia Gwinnett College near Atlanta, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Zhou says he welcomes the criticism, including from those who say he should lose his job, according to the report. “I am against political correctness,” Zhou, a legal immigrant from China, told the newspaper. “I speak truth...

    ...High-tech companies have long promoted the idea that they are egalitarian, idyllic workplaces. And Google, perhaps more than any other, has represented that image, with a reputation for enviable salaries and benefits and lavish perks. But the company’s increasing reliance on temps and contractors has some Google employees wondering if management is undermining its carefully crafted culture. As of March, Google worked with roughly 121,000 temps and contractors around the world, compared with 102,000 full-time employees, according to an internal document obtained by The New York Times. Though they often work side by side with full-timers, Google temps are usually...

    At 6:30 a.m., four of five Gordon family members are roaming around their suburban Sacramento house — if you count only the humans. There are also four dogs, a bunny, a tortoise, chickens, ducks, goats and a not-so-miniature miniature pig named Squiggy. Hilary Gordon is discussing the day's schedule with her husband in the middle of wrapping a breakfast sandwich for their 14-year-old, checking on cereal for their 17-year-old and staring down their 11-year-old, who just realized he forgot to finish today's math homework. Having time like this with her family is a major reason that Gordon, 47, works as...

    Why are the people that quit looking for work keep increasing? I believed that Obama falsified this numbers to get he employment rates lower. Now I fully expected Trump to use the same measures om calculating the percentages, however why with a booming economy are these numbers increasing? From 2016: US unemployed have quit looking for jobs at a ‘frightening’ level: Survey: "“not in the labor force” swelled by 664,000 to a record 94.7 million Americans, according to Labor Department data." The current numbers: 95,208 (Feb 2019) 95,577 (Mar 2019) 96,223 (Apr 2019)

    THE ruthless Saudi government is beheading so many people it needs to recruit a deadly new squad of sword-wielding executioners. The news comes after it slaughtered 37 people in one bloody day last week meaning it is now tipped to kill a record number of its citizens in 2019. The Sharia law-run state has advertised for eight new executioners to handle the projected rise in brutal public beheadings. No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is “executing a judgement of death” but also involves performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences. The macabre job advert...

    To have fought your way into the dream machine, only to find that after years of quality work there is no job for you -- that is a harsh blow and a sign of our era How do you take the measure of 4,000 jobs lost in an industry with the size and scope of Hollywood? That's the number of pink slips being handed by Disney to Fox employees now that the merged mega-studio won't need them anymore. Four. Thousand. Jobs. It's undoubtedly the largest layoff from a single entertainment company in a generation -- maybe ever -- a fact...

    The United States could suspend all legal immigration to the country for the next 40 years and maintain a workforce where there are still more than two U.S. workers for every one retiree, a new study finds. The latest study by the Center for Immigration Studies’ Steven Camarota reveals that despite claims by the big business lobby, Wall St., and corporate executives that mass legal immigration is necessary to maintain a sizeable workforce, current legal immigration trends have little to no impact on the working-age population. The workforce population is generally measured by the ratio showing the number of U.S....

    The start of 2019 has been brutal to the media industry, with as many as 2,100 writers, editors, and other workers losing their jobs in the past two weeks. On February 1, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Vice Media would be laying off 10 percent of its staff, or approximately 250 workers, as part of a reorganization effort; just hours later, the Miami New Times reported that McClatchy, which operates newspapers across the country, had offered voluntary buyouts to 450 workers. These reports come just one week after Verizon (which owns HuffPost, Yahoo, and AOL) laid off 7 percent of...

    What if I told you that I could virtually eliminate gridlock in this region? That I could lower housing prices, especially for the poor and working class? And that I could raise wages, especially for the poor and working class? What if I told you I could do all of that, and it wouldn’t cost one penny in tax dollars? If you would just have the wisdom to put me in charge, I could do all of that. What is this magic formula, you might ask? I’m willing to say things that people aren’t willing to say in this politically...

    December brought the U.S. healthcare industry's largest monthly spike in the number of new hires since at least February 1990. Healthcare added 50,200 jobs last month, the largest numeric increase in new hires in Modern Healthcare's monthly jobs data, which stretches back to February 1990. Hiring in the industry jumped 56% from November, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics' December jobs report released Friday. While more than 50,000 new jobs was "an unexpectedly high number," Total nonfarm employment rose by 312,000 jobs in December, and the unemployment rate rose by 0.2 percentage points to 3.9%. Overall in 2018,...

    The Trump administration wants to push more food stamp recipients to find jobs, after this year's farm bill failed to include work requirements for the federal food assistance program. The U.S. Department of Agriculture on Thursday proposed a rule that would limit the ability of states to exempt work-eligible adults from having to obtain steady employment to receive food stamps. Critics called the proposal "draconian" and said it would hurt workers and families who are already struggling. The move comes just weeks after lawmakers passed a $400 billion farm bill that reauthorized agriculture and conservation programs while leaving the Supplemental...

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D.-Calif.) responded to the November employment report that came out today—which showed that a record 156,795,000 were employed in America—by saying that the report revealed “a callous GOP special interest agenda” that has hurt the “economic security of hard-working families.” The unemployment numbers released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the unemployment rate was 3.7 percent for the third straight month. That is the lowest unemployment rate the United States has seen since 1969, according to BLS. “November’s jobs report shows an economy straining beneath the weight of a callous GOP special interest...

    No one likes dealing with bureaucracy, but some kinds of bureaucracy are easier to tolerate than others. It's no picnic for a kid to get their learner's permit, take driving lessons, complete a written driving exam and then take a driving test in order to get their license. The good news is that the driver's license system works. When your kid completes the steps, they'll get their driver's license. If only job-hunting were such a simple process! When you complete an online job application, you're guaranteed exactly nothing. You may get an interview and you may not. You may hear...

    Here are a few facts about America. The unemployment rate among those with a high school education is 3.9 percent. The poorest quintile of Americans have seen their post-tax incomes increase 80 percent since 1979, according to Congressional Budget Office data, and post-tax and transfer income for that quintile has skyrocketed 32 percent since 2000. The upper-middle class in America constituted 13 percent of the population in 1979; as of 2014, it constituted 30 percent. According to Pew Research from 2015, when it comes to standard of living, "The U.S. stands head and shoulders above the rest of the world....

    In a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The tactic is one of many ways companies are trying to attract workers amid a nationwide labor shortage. Some employees who were offered jobs after one phone call wondered if it was a red flag or a scam. Up against a tight job market, some employers are making job offers after a single phone interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. This strategy is being seen mainly for seasonal jobs at retail companies such as Macy's and Bath & Body...

    The sizzling economy underpins President Trump’s final blitz for Republicans in the midterms, with dire warnings that the jobs boom and higher wages will slip away if Democrats seize Congress. Mr. Trump enjoys the best first-term economy in three decades with the gross domestic product growing at a 3.5 percent annual rate last quarter, and Mr. Trump wants Republicans rewarded for it at the ballot box. Analysts agree, however, that good times breed complacency among midterm voters and that grievance, such as the burning hatred harbored by Mr. Trump’s opponents on the left, is a stronger motivator for turnout at...
