Safeguarding Religious Beliefs in the Workplace: Combating Discrimination / Politics / Employment

By: Sumeet_Manhas

The present world is so varied that we have to strengthen our efforts in the business world to uphold the fundamental right to freedom. When it comes to religious beliefs, which are deeply personal and play a significant role in shaping an individual's identity, the issue becomes quite delicate. It is crucial to build an environment where employees feel respected and protected when expressing their religious convictions. How can we safeguard religious beliefs in the workplace and combat discrimination?

Big tech firing spree continues… A day in the life of a Google employee… / Companies / Employment

By: Submissions

The big tech firing spree continues… A day in the life of a Google employee… This chart tells it all... A tailwind for the Nasdaq...

  1. Is big tech in trouble?

Amazon (AMZN) just announced it will fire 9,000 workers. This brings its total for the year up to 27,000.

Facebook (META) is downsizing, too. A couple weeks ago, CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced a second round of layoffs. He already let 11,000 people go in November. Now, he’s firing another 10,000.

Earlier this month, Google (GOOGL) said it’s letting 12,000 employees go.

And Microsoft (MSFT)Shopify (SHOP)Salesforce (CRM), and others are getting rid of thousands more.

In total, US tech firms announced over 100K layoffs since the start of the year.

Weak August Payrolls: Why We Should Care / Economics / Employment

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

A disappointing nonfarm payrolls report came. If the Fed postpones the tapering announcement considerably, gold might be able to rally for longer.

They say that September is a good time for gold. Indeed, historically, gold used to shine during the ninth month, and the yellow metal also started this year’s September on a good note. As the chart below shows, it jumped above $1,800 on the last day of August, and it has continued its rebound since then.

US Labor Shortage May Be Permanent / Economics / Employment

By: Patrick_Watson

According to some business owners and Wall Street pundits, US employers can’t hire enough people because unemployment benefits are too high. We’re paying people not to work, they say.

Certainly, some people who could work are milking the system. That’s sad, but is it the only reason all those jobs are unfilled? Probably not.

Nonetheless, several governors have decided to end the federally funded enhanced benefits. Instead of the planned September expiration, they will now disappear as soon as next week in some states.

If, in fact, benefits are what’s keeping people from working, labor shortages should ease in the states that end them. I think there’s more to the story, though. This problem was already there before those extra benefits. It’s more the result of larger trends that aren’t stopping. If anything, they are getting worse.

How the Pandemic Is Changing the Labor Market / Economics / Employment

By: Patrick_Watson

When it comes to the US jobs situation, the “One of these things is not like the others” song from Sesame Street comes to mind.

We have two competing narratives. Official data says millions are unemployed and seeking work. At the same time, businesses say they can’t find enough workers.

A skills mismatch between the workers who need jobs and the job openings themselves isn’t unusual. But many of today’s available jobs don’t require advanced education.

U.S. Money Reserve on Protecting Your Retirement When Changing Jobs / Personal_Finance / Employment

By: Sumeet_Manhas

The days when an employee stuck with one company throughout their career are largely gone in the U.S. Instead, many workers switch jobs every few years, seeking new opportunities for professional development and salary increases. While a focus on one’s career mobility can be positive, one aspect of such a change is too often neglected—retirement savings. For guidance on how to help protect the savings you have worked hard to earn, we turn to some helpful information via U.S. Money Reserve.

For Some Remote Workers, It Pays to Stay Home… If Home Stays Local / Personal_Finance / Employment

By: John_Mauldin

By Dawn Pennington : None of us are medically invincible. We saw that last week when the president and first lady announced they had tested positive for COVID-19.

Remote work has helped to save many jobs and lives. And as coronavirus infection and death rates continue to tick higher, many people are settling into the idea of teleworking for the longer haul.

For some, that means social-distancing from expensive cities and seeking more space in the suburbs or across state lines.

Unemployment Rate Drops. Will It Drag Gold Down? / Economics / Employment

By: Arkadiusz_Sieron

The U.S. labor market improved in August, although headlines paint too rosy a picture. What does it all mean for the gold market?

Great news for the U.S. labor market: according to the BLS, the American economy regained 1.4 million jobs, while the unemployment rate fell below 10 percent for the first time in the pandemic era! To be more precise, the unemployment rate declined from 10.2 percent in July to 8.4 percent in August, as the chart below shows.

UK Points-Based Immigration and Its Effect on the Job Market / Personal_Finance / Employment

By: Submissions

When the UK exits from the European Union (EU), freedom of movement ceases, and EU citizens will not be able to come in the UK to live, work or study under the existing immigration rules – and vice versa.

This means a new immigration system will be needed to enable those wanting to come and contribute to the UK to do so. As was proposed in Brexit debates and is still favoured today by the UK Government, a points-based immigration system is likely.

America’s “Full Employment” Hides a Dirty Secret / Economics / Employment

By: John_Mauldin

Should just being “employed” make people/workers happy?
On one level, any job is better than no job. But we also derive much of our identities and self-esteem from our work.

If you aren’t happy with it, you’re probably not happy generally.

Unhappy people can still vote and are often easy marks for shameless politicians to manipulate. Their spending patterns change, too.

So it ends up affecting everyone and everything.

Employment - The Good and the Bad of Job Automation / Economics / Employment

By: Patrick_Watson

People are worried robots will take their jobs. That’s a legitimate fear sometimes, but it’s not new. It is just another step in a process that started long ago.

The bigger question is whether job automation is good.

If we want the economy to grow, the math is pretty easy. It’s a two-factor equation:

  • The number of available workers, multiplied by
  • The value of goods and services the average worker produces.

Increase one or both of those and presto, GDP will rise. Automation helps raise the second one. But then it gets complicated.

It’s Not Technology but the Fed That Is Taking Away Jobs / Economics / Employment

By: John_Mauldin


You’ve likely heard of the term “income inequality.” It means wealthy people are making a larger share of our collective income.

In one sense, it’s nothing new. The people with the highest incomes have more of the total. Math guarantees it.

But the top’s share has largely grown in recent decades, as has the share of assets owned by the wealthiest.

In fact, Ray Dalio of Bridgewater Associates says that income inequality is now at the same level it was in the Great Depression.

Let’s review some charts from my friend Bruce Mehlman’s latest fascinating slide deck. It does a good job of explaining the drivers of this trend and its striking scale.

The Unprotected, the Protected, the Vulnerably Protected Classes—Which Are You? / Politics / Employment

By: John_Mauldin

Last month I shared in Outside the Box (subscribe here) a new McKinsey report on job automation. Every year, reports like this reflect a process that’s occurred many times in human history.

People discover or invent something useful: fire, the wheel, iron, gunpowder, coal, oil, the steam engine, electricity, the automobile, the airplane, the computer, etc. Life changes as the new knowledge spreads. People either adapt or they don’t.

Those who don’t adapt fade into the background. In the last few decades of their working lives, they end up taking the very lowliest of jobs in order to get some food, clothing, and shelter, but it’s not a comfortable life.

The Jobs Report Misled You—Job and Wage Growth Are Actually Decelerating / Economics / Employment

The monthly jobs report is one of the most important statistics for investors.

Yes, any single month doesn’t tell us much. Yes, the Labor Department’s methodology has some flaws, both major and minor, which I covered many times in my newsletter, Thoughts from the Frontline (subscribe here). But imperfect as it is, the jobs report is our best look at the economy’s pulse.

The Jobs Market Has Divided Into People Who Are Tech Savvy And Those Who Aren’t / Economics / Employment

By: John_Mauldin

Things keep changing. And at an accelerating pace. One of the most important things to write about—and the most difficult—is the future of work. New Technology destroys old jobs, but it would also create new jobs and opportunities.

A clear example of this is the use of drone technology by the military. It requires about 100 people to prep and launch and maintain an F-16 for a single mission. Keeping an unmanned predator drone in the air for 24 hours requires about 168 workers.

Robots May Perform Half The Jobs In The US Within 20 Years: Here’s What That Could Mean / Economics / Employment

Perhaps you don’t think the change that is upon us is a profound one. But consider this: Within two decades, half the jobs in this country may be performed by robots. What then of our unemployment rate? And what of our social safety net?

Opinion is divided. Will the next technological wave further skew the wealth distribution toward the uber-rich? Or will it ultimately create more entrepreneurial and job opportunities than it destroys?
