  • Strong Economy Draws Women into U.S. Labor Force

    For most of the last two decades, the share of women participating in the U.S. labor force was in decline, puzzling demographers and economists since female participation was rising in many other developed economies. Thanks to a strong economy, that long-running decline shows signs of reversing. Labor-force participation among prime-age U.S. women aged 25 to 54 has risen to 75.2% from 73.3% three years ago, as their unemployment rate dropped to the lowest level since the 1950s. A plenitude of jobs and a gradual rise in wages is drawing women back into the labor force, including those at the low...

    Reuters ^ | 10/16/2018
    U.S. job openings jumped to a record high in August, far outpacing a rise in hiring, suggesting that companies could be increasingly having difficulties finding qualified workers. The Labor Department said in its monthly Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, or JOLTS, report on Tuesday that there were 7.14 million unfilled positions in the economy in August. That was the highest level since the series started in 2000 and compared to 7.08 million vacancies in July. The job openings rate also rose to an all-time high of 4.6 percent from 4.5 percent in July. Hiring increased to a record high...

    U.S. employers posted the most jobs in two decades in August, and hiring also reached a record high, fresh evidence that companies are desperate to staff up amid solid economic growth. Job openings rose a slight 0.8 percent to 7.14 million, the highest on records dating back to December 2000, the Labor Department said Tuesday. That is also far more than the 6.2 million of people who were unemployed that month. The number of available jobs has swamped the number of unemployed for five straight months. Hiring has been solid, which has pushed down the unemployment rate to a nearly...

    As the job market continues to tighten, more factories are turning to a recruiting tool they have been avoiding: money. Take Spectro Alloys Corp. in Rosemount, Minn. The aluminum recycling firm has upped its recruitment budget and raised starting pay nearly 10 percent —it even raffled off a new ATV to job applicants. "The hiring environment is extremely challenging right now," said Luke Palen, president of Spectro, which recently added 5,000 square feet and needs more workers to meet demand. "A hot market for recycled aluminum and even hotter local job market is forcing the Spectro team to think outside...

    The economy is roaring, the courts are turning right and trade wars are not producing defeats. As the president’s approval rating creeps up, is it all going right for Republicans? A strong economy with joblessness at its lowest rate for nearly half a century. A new trade deal with Canada and Mexico. Hopes of peace in the Korean peninsula. No major terrorist attacks on the homeland. A week that began with cheers at the White House for a new supreme court justice and ended with the release of an American pastor from jail in Turkey.

About 200 of the new employees will be based in Central New York, while other new hires will fill openings in SRC regional offices in Dayton, Ohio; San Antonio; Charlottesville, Va., and Chantilly, Va., he said.

    There is no limit on how many people Vallourec, a global manufacturing company with a steel pipe mill here in the Valley, could hire right now, said Chris Allen, the company’s talent acquisition manager for North America. “We don’t have enough [workers] and we won’t have enough,” Allen said. “Our [hiring] number is infinite right now.” That demand is no doubt driven partly by the boom in oil and natural gas, one of the primary industries Vallourec serves, but there are other issues at play that other Valley manufacturing companies are experiencing, too. “We could use 20 more [employees] right...

    ....Author, entrepreneur and NYU business professor Scott Galloway has emerged as one of Amazon’s fiercest critics. At last month’s Recode Code Commerce, Galloway gave a 45-minute talk on the future of retail that savaged Amazon and warned of the threats the company poses not just economically but philosophically and morally. “I believe our society is effectively going through this very uncomfortable transition that is bad for our youth, bad for America and bad for the planet where we no longer worship at the altar of character and kindness,” he said. “We worship at the altar of innovators and billionaires.” In...

    Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant plans to add a third shift, and potentially hire upwards of 1,000 more workers, as it readies to make the five-seat version of its Atlas SUV next year, an official said Friday.

Pinto, speaking after a ceremony unveiling the 100,000th Atlas produced at the sprawling factory, said the third shift will begin next year as the five-seat Atlas is added to production.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | October 5, 2018 | Sharon Nunn
    The benefits of a strong job market are spreading in the form of higher wages for many of those left behind for much of the past decade’s economic expansion, including young Americans, low-income households and people with the least education. The unemployment rate in September fell to 3.7%, its lowest level since 1969. That is creating worker shortages and wage gains, not just for high-skilled workers who tend to command the best pay but also for low-skilled and blue-collar workers whose wages lag behind. A study by The Conference Board this week showed shortages are now most acute in blue-collar...

    SEOUL, Oct 1 (Reuters) - South Korea’s SK Innovation said on Monday it is considering building an electric vehicle battery plant in the United States as part of its effort to secure customers in one of the world’s biggest electric vehicle (EV) markets.

SK Innovation currently has Daimler and Hyundai Motor as its top consumers, but does not have U.S. clients. “We are considering building...
