    South Korean troops will be free of cleaning and maintenance work, such as getting rid of overgrown grass and removing snow, as the defense ministry announced Thursday it will outsource the work to private contractors. The ministry said it will start having contractors take care of weeding and cleaning at major units in the tense border areas next year and expand it to rearguard and supporting units from 2021. In addition to tough drills and training, South Korean soldiers are assigned to do weeding and remove snow at their units and surrounding areas. The ministry said the work often causes...

    The largest employer in Middle Georgia is getting even bigger. Robins Air Force Base announced plans Wednesday to hire 1,200 people at its Air Logistics Complex by the end of 2019. The new jobs were created because of new work that’s come to the base during the past year, Brig. Gen. John Kubinec, Warner Robins Air Logistics Complex commander, said in a news conference held on the base’s flight line. “Just over a year ago they rolled out the very first Global Hawk we did here,” he said. “We have inducted our very first J-STARS aircraft for (programmed depot maintenance)....

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | August 13, 2018 | Benjamin Haas in Seoul
    Kim Jeong-cheol wakes up every morning at 6am to deliver packages to Seoul’s wealthier residents, and spends every night ferrying those same people home after a night out, ending his working day well past midnight. He also works at a cosmetics distribution company he runs from his home with his wife. Kim is one of many in South Korea’s capital to have taken on extra jobs as part of the unintended consequence of a law aimed at capping working hours and giving people more free time. On 1 July South Korea cut the maximum weekly work hours to 52, down...
  • The Jobs Report Is Validation of Trump's Economic Policies: Comparing Obama and Trump's Numbers

    RCM ^ | 08/13/2018 | Louis Woodhill
    [SNIP] Let’s compare the jobs numbers for Trump’s first 19 months in office with those of Obama’s last 19 months in the White House: * Employment Ratio: +0.73 percentage points, more than twice Obama’s +0.35 * Labor Force Participation: +0.22 percentage point vs. Obama’s -0.16 * FTE jobs: +4.1 million vs. +3.3 million under Obama * Average weekly wages: +$40.55 vs. +$31.21 under Obama The reason that the labor market is finally tightening is that Trump’s tax and regulatory policies are bringing real GDP (RGDP) growth back to levels that are historically normal for the U.S. Despite the Great Depression,...
  • Even if called racist, Trump makes life better for black Americans

    The North Andover Eagle-Tribune ^ | August 10, 2018 | Jay Ambrose
    President Donald Trump is making life better for black Americans everywhere you look while his predecessor fumbled. But, hey, say his critics, not everything is perfect yet, so don’t give in to his policies. It’s an unbudging, self-inflicted blindness that can hardly be called racism, itself, even though it is similarly destructive. The loudest Trump triumph of the moment has been dips to the lowest black unemployment in history, and get this: Jobs confer purpose, they provide pride, they build community, they set one up to help others, they enable social mobility, they lift the spirit. Welfare limps, jobs jog...
  • The Market Is “Banning the Box”: The Long-term unemployed finally going back to work.

    City Journal ^ | 08/09/2018 | Aaron M. Renn
    The American economic expansion is finally accomplishing one of the country’s most needed social improvements: getting the long-term unemployed reattached to the labor market. Income inequality gets much of the press today, but as Harvard economist and Manhattan Institute senior fellow Ed Glaeser points out, long-term joblessness is the more serious problem. The unemployed face a heightened risk of serious ills ranging from physical maladies and mental health problems to divorce. Rising long-term joblessness, particularly among prime, working-age men (25 to 54), has been a corrosive trend. A Kansas City Federal Reserve study found that the number of men in...

    eFinancial Careers ^ | August 7, 2018 | Sarah Butcher
    Do you really earn less working for a European than for a U.S. bank in London? Popular opinion would have it that you do. But popular opinion may be wrong: our analysis suggests that if the European investment bank you work for is either Credit Suisse or UBS, you'll be paid on a par with people at U.S. houses. - Or at least, this appears to have been the case for last year. Both UBS and Credit Suisse issued UK specific remuneration reports for 2017. They're not new, but they are buried on the Swiss banks' websites and we've only...

    Task & Purpose ^ | August 8, 2018 | Brad Howard
    Way out in Nevada, the secret base from Independence Day — yes, Area 51 — is hiring a pilot for the only airline that flies direct to the secluded destination. Janet Air — as in “Just Another Non Existent Terminal” — flies a nondescript red-striped fleet of 737s from Las Vegas to various sandy, high-security government outposts where, as in Vegas, what goes on there stays there. The job posting in question is looking for a 3,000-hour pilot with an active Top Secret clearance and little interest in what their passengers do at work. According to salary research site Glassdoor,...

    The San Francisco Examiner ^ | August 8, 2018 | Joshua Sabatini
    Disadvantaged workers in San Francisco could get training for jobs in the cannabis industry under a proposed government program that would require businesses to hire the graduates. The program, dubbed CityGrow, is modeled after CityBuild, an existing government program overseen by the Office of Economic and Workforce Development, that provides training for disadvantaged residents to land jobs in the construction industry. Supervisor Ahsha Safai introduced the legislation last week for “advancing workforce equity.” He told the San Francisco Examiner Tuesday that the intent is “to make sure everyday San Franciscans are able to take advantage of these opportunities.” He noted...

  • Major disconnect: Jobs unfilled despite thousands of unemployed

    Dayton Daily News ^ | 08/07/2018 | By Lynn Hulsey
    The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics says 20,000 unemployed people are looking for work in Montgomery, Greene and Miami counties, the three counties that make up the Dayton Metropolitan Statistical Area. But some employers look at the slim pickings they get from job fairs and want ads and wonder where all the good workers are. The disconnect between those looking for work and companies struggling to find workers is one reason so many people in the region are not reaping the full rewards of the booming economy. It’s also a reason companies see their job openings going unfilled. “What they...

    U.S. employers posted slightly more openings in June than the previous month, resulting in more available jobs than unemployed people for the third straight month, signaling a solid economy. The Labor Department said Tuesday that job openings barely increased, rising 3,000 to 6.66 million. That’s more than the 6.56 million people who were searching for work in June. It’s also close to April’s figure of 6.8 million, a record high. Overall hiring slipped to 5.65 million from 5.75 million, and the number of people quitting their jobs declined slightly to 3.4 million from nearly 3.5 million in May. The figures...

    MORAINE, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) -- Fuyao Glass America is hiring and expanding. The company said it currently has approximately 400 job openings as it plans expansion. "My goal is to, by the end of the year, to build an additional warehouse so we can shift some half-finished goods to the warehouse and leave some space to add a production line," Fuyao Glass America President Jeff Liu said. Liu provided a tour of the glass manufacturing plant to Congressman Mike Turner (R- District 10) and Illinois Congressman John Shimkus (R - District 15). He said the new warehouse could come with an...

    CS Monitor ^ | 08/06/2018 | By Laurent Belsie
    Almost like clockwork, a growing US economy cranks out new jobs. In July, it added 157,000 positions, the US Labor Department reported Friday; in June, 248,000. But with unemployment near 20-year lows and some analysts touting “full employment,” are there enough available people to keep filling them? Population growth can account for about a third to a half of the new hires. But to keep the economy growing, people not currently working need to come off the sidelines to reenter the workforce. And that’s what’s happening. The story of who and how is a sometimes messy process, with people struggling...
