    Englewood — When businesses sell products, they need packages. And that’s where a company like Value Added Packaging comes in.

It is leasing an additional 30,000 square feet across Lau from its main facility. But that leasing will end when the company expands behind its current building in 2019. In all, Value Added Packaging — sometimes called “VAP” — is expanding by some 40,000 square feet. The total value of the investment in the lab...

    Trump Economy: During his 2016 campaign, then-GOP candidate Donald Trump was mocked by Democrats (and some Republicans) for claiming that, under his leadership, Americans would get “tired of winning.” Well, there’s no sign most Americans have reached that point, but there is plenty of evidence that our country and our people are definitely winning under POTUS Trump’s economic leadership.

    President Donald Trump’s pro-American policies on immigration are successfully pressuring U.S. companies to hire American business-school graduates instead of foreign graduates. Companies “have been hiring [foreign graduates] not because they are needed, but because it is easy and they could get away with paying them less,” said Jessica Vaughan, policy director at the Center for Immigration Studies. She added: As soon as there is resistance from the government, they find another way, they start actually recruiting Americans and legal immigrants instead of [foreign] guest workers … [because] they want a [legally] stable worker force as a well as a cheap...

    Some 500,000 nonlocal, for-hire truckers are delivering freight in the U.S., and the industry needs 51,000 more, experts say. The average driver is 50 years old, and only 6 percent are women. Trucking companies including Saia, Titanium Transportation, ArcBest and Ryder System have all noted wage increases for drivers on recent earnings calls as the shortage worsens. Trucks hauled more than 70 percent of freight tonnage in the U.S. last year, generating $676 billion in revenues, according to the American Trucking Associations. But the industry is grappling with a growing problem — a shortage of qualified drivers, as its current...

Ms. Benet, a registered nurse, had worked at Montefiore Health System in the Bronx for 40 years before retiring two years ago at age 60. As a grandmother of 10, Ms. Benet wanted to spend more time with her family. But she quickly realized — within weeks — that she wasn’t ready for full retirement. Montefiore was ready to welcome her back. The hospital system developed an informal program to rehire some retired nurses...
