The president for the next four years gets a surprisingly strong jobs market

first_imgNear the top of the president’s agenda, whether it’s Joe Biden or Donald Trump, will be to continue mending the fractured jobs market.“We definitely are seeing signs of recovery in demand in every pocket of the labor market,” said Karen Fichuk, CEO of Randstad North America, a global human relations and staffing service. “The next president will have a changing labor market. We still have nearly half the people that have been unemployed that we have to put back to work. That’s the job.” Election workers count ballots at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center (MCTEC), in Phoenix, Arizona, November 6, 2020.Jim Urquhart | Reuters When he took office in 2017, Trump inherited a labor market that was still producing 176,000 jobs a month but looked to be running out of steam as economists were predicting much slower gains ahead.- Advertisement – Whomever occupies the Oval Office in 2021 will face a challenging economy, but an employment picture that at least seems to have some unexpected momentum.The 638,000 nonfarm payrolls gain in October underscored both the resilience of the economic system as well as how far the business community has to go yet from the damage done during the first two months of the coronavirus pandemic.March and April saw the loss of 22 million jobs, 12.1 million of which have been recovered. That means companies are still hiring, but lots of workers – 11.1 million – are still looking for jobs and themselves face a challenging landscape ahead.- Advertisement – Instead, payroll growth continued apace, with monthly payroll increases averaging 173,000 a month through the end of 2019. A few months later, though, the world hit the Covid-19 buzzsaw that saw much of the U.S. economy go into forced hibernation.New skills, new jobsThe services sector generally and hospitality businesses specifically took a particularly hard hit from which they are still recovering.Though there’s still plenty of slack in the market, Fichuk said her firm is seeing high demand from firms looking to fill positions.“There has been a shift in demand and some segments will never come back,” she said. “Workers have been displaced. We had some tough headwinds even before the pandemic.”However, teaching workers new skills as their old jobs are phased out has become a priority during the Trump years and will remain so into the next four years, Fichuk added.Randstad has seen a 35% increase in demand for information technology managers, 16% in software testers and 5% for software developers from September to October. Warehouse demand also has increased for a field that is seen as a good transition for displaced restaurant and bar workers.Demand also has jumped 50% year over year for assemblers and there have been “stark” increases for call center and customer service positions.Holiday hiresThe continued efforts to fill positions is being seen across a number of sectors and is intensifying as the holiday season approaches.“It’s always a busy time for us. This year is no difference. In fact, our numbers for seasonal positions have increased year over year, which is a great sign,” said Amy Glaser, senior vice president at job placement firm Adecco. “One of other trends is with the uptick in ecommerce and curbside pickup, we’re expecting the return season to last through January. Usually for seasonal workers it ends sometime in the middle of December. We’re definitely seeing an extension of that.”Another encouraging sign Glaser noted is the ability of companies to adapt to the virus.That’s important, with new cases running above 100,000 a day and worries growing that the U.S. could follow Europe into shutting down parts of its economy to stem the resurgence.“Employers have learned a lot of lessons since the initial onslaught. They’ve really come up with better contingency plans,” Glaser said. “They are acknowledging the fact that employees are going to need to be quarantined or stay at home. They’re actually building a buffer to help cover any absences that occur.”A proactive approach from business at least can help alleviate one headache that the president for the next four years will have to face. The economy improved at a record pace in the third quarter, but the future pace will depend on a variety of factors.One slightly positive sign: The level of permanent job losses actually edged lower in October by 72,000, though it still remains well above the February pre-pandemic total.“If you see that the permanent job losses start to decline, that really signals that the labor market has been gaining some traction,” said Michael Arone, chief investment strategist at State Street Global Advisors. “So far, most states have broadly resisted the urge to do too much on the restrictions compared to Europe. If that dynamic changes, absolutely it is a risk to the labor market.” – Advertisement – – Advertisement –last_img read more

More than 700 guests come to Novigrad every year to harvest olives

first_imgLast week in Novigrad, the first group of 200 guests from Germany started harvesting olives in the olive groves of Laguna Novigrad.In the morning, the guests went to the olive groves and thus gave their contribution to the production of the esteemed olive oil Vergal. During the harvest, which was accompanied by traditional Istrian music, they also had the opportunity to enjoy local gourmet specialties.”Today has definitely exceeded all my expectations. Picking olives in the first row to the sea, excellent food, oil tasting and helpful waiters. A special day in a beautiful location “, said Klaudia from Germany, who, along with other guests, opened this year’s olive harvest.The company Laguna Novigrad, which manages the tourist brand Aminess Hotels & Campsites, offers guests a unique tourist package that includes accommodation in its facilities and participation in the olive harvest. Thus, every year, during October and November, during the harvest period, Novigrad is visited by more than 700 guests from all over Europe. After the harvest, guests visit the oil mill where they attend the process of processing harvested olives, and as a souvenir they receive a bottle of Vergal.The olive groves where Vergal is produced are located in the immediate vicinity of the sea, which maximally benefits the olive fruit and the quality of the oil. The oil is obtained directly from the olive fruit by a mechanical cold processing process while the fruits are harvested by hand in order to preserve the quality and body of the fruit to the maximum.The quality of Vergal is recognized by both experts and consumers, and it is the winner of several national and international awards. Among them are this year’s award in the Best of Class category, for Vergal Frantoio won in New York at “The New York International Olive Oil Competition”, the largest and one of the most respected competitions in assessing the quality of olive oils in the world, and a gold gourmet medal for Vergal Frantoio as part of the International Edible Oils Competition awarded by L’Agence pour la Valorisation des Produits Agricoles (AVPA) in Paris.Also, the renowned world guide to the highest quality olive oils “Flos Olei 2019” was recently included. For the sixth time, Vergal is part of a world guide that evaluates hundreds of olive oils from all over the world every year. By the way, Aminess also uses the same quality olive oil in its gastronomic offer, ie in the kitchen during the tourist season.A great example of how the tourist season lengthensIn the off-season, 700 guests came to Novigrad, but the motive for their arrival was not the sea and beaches, but olive picking and quality content. Now this whole project, like many others, should rise to a higher level, but not only Aminess, but in synergy the whole destination. This is just a “proof of concept” and one small wheel, now imagine that in Novigrad at the same time we have 5-6 more similar events, that’s about 5.000 nights. The calculation is clear.In north-western Istria we have the best example of the synergy of destinations in Croatia, through Colors of Istria, which extended the season through various contents in the pre- and post-season, and most importantly, not the focus on numbers, but on quality guests who generate much more tourist consumption.On the other side of the Adriatic, more precisely in Postira on the island of Brač, the 2nd World Olive Picking Championship was held this weekend, with teams from Montenegro, France, Slovenia, the Netherlands, Hungary, Great Britain, Sweden, Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Herzegovina, the United States and, of course, Croatia. The event, the main goals of which are to spread olive culture, exchange experiences, socialize between representatives of olive growers, but also countries that do not have such a developed olive tradition, was organized for the second year in a row by Postira Tourist Board and Agricultural Cooperative from Brač.A great example of how the tourist season lengthens. We don’t have to invent “hot water”, we just offer what is natural and logical. Let us be what we are, I must be our main tourist product. Content, only quality content is the main formula of the ingredient how to prolong the tourist season.last_img read more

Mudslide traps 500 tourists in Canadian ski resort

first_imgSome 500 tourists were trapped inside a ski resort in western Canada on Sunday after a mudslide destroyed the access road, local media reported.Heavy rains knocked loose mud and debris, and the ensuing mudslide washed out about 0.6 miles (one kilometer) of the only access road to the Sasquatch Mountain Resort, the British Columbia transportation ministry said in a statement.It said that clearing the road could take five to six days and urged local residents to stay at home while they waited for the work to be completed. “We’re pretty much at the mercy of Mother Nature,” said Shelby Lim, a resort manager, in an interview with the CBC.She added that the resort, which is about 60 miles east of Vancouver, had lost power due to inclement weather but had backup generators.Lim also noted that the vacationers could leave the resort via a helicopter service, which cost about $150 per person. About 100 people had used or intended to use the helicopter service to leave, the CBC reported, but the rest had decided to stay put and wait for the road to reopen.Topics :last_img read more

COVID-19: Govt to allow people under 45 to work outside to prevent more layoffs

first_imgThose in the age group had the lowest coronavirus fatality rate with 15 percent, Doni said.Meanwhile, COVID-19 patients above 60 years of age had an alarmingly high fatality rate of 45 percent, followed by patients aged 46 to 59, with a fatality rate of 40 percent. Both groups were considered more vulnerable to the disease, he went on to say.”If we can protect both vulnerable groups, it means that we can protect 85 percent of our citizens,” Doni said, adding that those considered to be more at risk should maintain physical distancing and stay at home instead.Those under 45 years old will be allowed to resume activities outside, albeit by taking into account the health protocols, such as wearing masks and washing hands frequently. The government is set to allow people under 45 years old to work outside their homes so as to prevent more people from being laid off amid mobility restrictions in place to curb the novel coronavirus spread.Indonesia’s COVID-19 task force head, Doni Monardo, said on Monday that the people under the age of 45, whom he said were less vulnerable to suffer from severe COVID-19 cases, would be given the green light to carry out their activities outside to make ends meet.”The young population under 45 years old are physically healthy and they have high mobility,” Doni said, “If they are exposed [to the coronavirus], they might not get sick because they show no symptoms.” “This aims to maintain a balance. [We want them] to be protected from the virus, as well as from the termination of employment,” he said as quoted by kompas.com.The COVID-19 outbreak has hit the country’s economy and businesses, affecting millions of workers as mobility restrictions have been imposed to clamp down on COVID-19 transmission.At least 2.8 million people have lost their jobs as of April 13, according to data from the Manpower Ministry and the Workers Social Security Agency (BPJS Ketenagakerjaan). More than half were furloughed and place on paid or unpaid leave.The plan to give more opportunities for those aged 45 and younger to work outside their homes come as the central government mulls over the possibility of easing travel restrictions and gradually lifting social restrictions in June, prompting experts to warn that the war against COVID-19 is far from over.The delayed results of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests and the nation’s low testing capacity have made it difficult to capture the true scale of the epidemic, analysts warned as they called for authorities to carry out further epidemiological studies before deciding to relax the curbs.The government has since March 15 called for all people to practice physical-distancing measures by working, studying and worshiping from home to contain the spread of the deadly coronavirus. Some regions, including Jakarta, have imposed stronger measures by implementing large-scale social distancing restrictions. As of Monday, Indonesia recorded 14,265 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 991 fatalities, according to the central government’s official count. (vny)Topics :last_img read more

Nigeria’s pastors ‘as rich as oil barons’

first_img Share Increasing numbers of Nigerians are attending independent church services, like this one in LagosNigeria’s pastors run multi-million dollar businesses which rival that of oil tycoons, a Nigerian blogger who has researched the issue has told the BBC.Mfonobong Nsehe, who blogs for Forbes business magazine, says pastors own businesses from hotels to fast-food chains.“Preaching is big business. It’s almost as profitable as the oil business,” he said.The joint wealth of five pastors was at least $200m (£121m), he said.Mr Nsehe said the richest of them, Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith World Outreach Ministry, was worth about $150m.Bishop Oyedepo owned a publishing company, university, an elite private school, four jets and homes in London and the United States, according to Mr Nsehe.‘Private jets’ The Nigerian blogger said Bishop Oyedepo was followed on the rich list by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome of the Believers’ Loveworld Ministries. He was worth between $30 and $50m.“Oyakhilome’s diversified interests include newspapers, magazines, a local television station, a record label, satellite TV, hotels and extensive real estate,” Mr Nsehe said.He said three of the other richest pastors were:Temitope Joshua Matthew of the Synagogue Church Of All Nations (worth between $10m and $15m);Matthew Ashimolowo of Kingsway International Christian Centre (worth between $6 million and $10 million) andChris Okotie of the Household of God Church (worth between $3 million and $10 million).Mr Nsehe said representatives of all the clergymen, except Pastor Ashimolowo, confirmed ownership of the assets he had listed on his blog.“These pastors are flamboyant. You see them with private jets and expensive cars. This extravagance sends out the wrong message to their followers,” he told the BBC’s Network Africa programme.He said the pastors acquired their wealth from various sources, including their congregations.“We have Nigerians who are desperate, looking for solutions to their problems. They go to church for salvation, redemption and healing and pastors sometimes take advantage of them,” Mr Nsehe said.BBC News Sharing is caring! 30 Views   no discussions Sharecenter_img Tweet Share FaithLifestyle Nigeria’s pastors ‘as rich as oil barons’ by: – June 14, 2011last_img read more

Boris Becker lays out Jurgen Klopp’s future career path

first_imgBoris Becker thinks Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp will go into international football before finishing his management career in Germany. Tennis Legend Boris Becker The two German compatriots, who are both 52, are friends, and have more than mutual respect for each other with Klopp recently admitting that Becker was one of his sporting idols. Becker has also shown admiration previously for the Reds boss and says to see a German coach lift the Champions League is “fantastic”. According to Becker, Klopp, who recently penned a new contract until 2024, still has the hunger to win more trophies with the Reds, but when he does finally call time at Anfield he believes the German will return home. “I would like ­Jurgen to come home to manage Germany one day – and I’m not the only one,” six-time Grand Slam winner Becker told the Daily Mirror. “I think he would be a great coach for our ­country because he is someone who really gets his ideas across to his players and who makes them buy in to what he’s attempting to do. “Every German football fan is impressed with the job Klopp is doing at Liverpool. “To see a German coach win the ­Champions League with one of England’s most famous clubs and now get so close to winning the Premier League as well is ­fantastic.

That isn’t easy to do at a big club, but the team has his clear signature. “He did it at Dortmund and now he’s done it at Liverpool – and that’s the sign of a great manager. “I don’t think he has ever been sacked – which is another tribute to his quality,” he added.

Palace right to take time – Coppell

first_img Palace, who are three points adrift at the foot of the Premier League with just one win from 11 games, next face Hull, Norwich and West Ham. Although the incoming boss will face a huge task to avoid relegation, Coppell is convinced the club is in a strong position off the field and can blossom in the future. He said: “Keith Millen has done a good job in the last few games. “He has intimated that he doesn’t want the job but he has stabilised the team, against Arsenal and Everton, so the signs are there. “Crystal Palace have four joint-owners and the goal has always been for the club to sustain itself. That should be the goal of any football club. “If they survive this year then I think you always have a better chance in the second year. “I know there is a huge desire at Crystal Palace to get this right and become very solid fixtures at this level.” Coppell, now director of football at League One Crawley, has himself been linked with a return to Selhurst Park in an upstairs role and he would not firmly rule out the possibility. The 58-year-old said: “I have probably spent a quarter of my life working for Crystal Palace so I have got a huge soft spot for them. “People always say never go back, but I have been back four times now. The best thing for me to say is never say never.” Coppell, who managed the club on four occasions, told Press Association Sport: “They need a manager who can cope with Premier League football and also have the energy, if they do go down, to drive the club back up again. “Also, they need the quality and commitment to take on that job. “There are a lot of boxes that need to be ticked and perhaps there isn’t one person who can tick all those boxes. “I think Steve is going through the process at the moment and perhaps thinking sideways about what the future holds and who would be the best man to take the club forward. “It is a complex process but, given the international break, he has used the time well to interview and look at, and talk to, a lot of people. “I’ve got every confidence he will come up with the right combination. “But you don’t want to leave it too long. “The next three games people would look at as being critical. They are all important and winnable games.” Former Crystal Palace manager Steve Coppell believes the club are right to take their time appointing their next manager. Palace have been searching for a new boss since parting company with Ian Holloway on October 23 and co-chairman Steve Parish has admitted the process has taken longer than expected. Ex-Chelsea player Dan Petrescu is thought to be among the front-runners for the position with the Premier League’s bottom side, along with Burnley’s Sean Dyche and former boss Iain Dowie.
