I wonder if having a Republicon party in full retreat in Sacramento has anything to do with California being such a powerhouse?

Oh, right. Redfin is an infirmational service of a real estate brokerage. California Business Exchange is also a brokerage. The Balance is a personal investment site, as is Investors. Investors Business Daily is Wiliam O'Neill's publication. Not sure that he has a political party affiliation, and he tends to spread his contributions around pretty evenly between Dems and Repubs.

But hey, I guess they post info which is at odds with your world view, they must be "right wing".

This post and your post about Detroit in this thread have to be among your absolute weakest ever.

Harley-Davidson workers stunned by plant closure after tax cut

More “winning”, thanks to the tax cut! Employees winning, I’m sure, in Whell’s world.

https://www.nbcnews.com/nightly-news...ax-cut-n876901

Harley-Davidson announced a dividend increase and a stock buyback plan to reward shareholders, repurchasing 15 million of its shares, valued at nearly $700 million.

Like other corporations, Harley-Davidson is benefiting this year from the tax cut law passed in 2017, which slashed the corporate rate from 35 percent to 21 percent. The company maintains that the dividend increase and stock buyback is unrelated to the tax savings.

House Speaker Paul Ryan visited a Harley plant in Wisconsin in September and said, “Tax reform can put American manufacturers and American companies like Harley-Davidson on a much better footing to compete in the global economy and keep jobs in America.”


Uh huh.

In the meantime Bill Maher wants a recession in order to get rid of Trump.

(One more sign that the Blue Tide is not happening.)

Yeah, its just horrible out there.

Employers are offering their summer workers higher wages this year, according to recently released surveys.

With unemployment matching a record low at 3.8 percent, more companies are willing to offer the maximum hourly wage they feel their business can afford rather than the minimum required by law, according to a survey of 1,000 hiring managers in the retail, restaurant and hospitality sectors, conducted by Wakefield Research.

About 74 percent of respondents plan to pay an hourly wage of at least $11, compared to last year when only 53 percent of employers planned to pay the same or more. Just 12 percent said they would pay the minimum wage this summer, down from 18 percent in 2017.


Also:

The vast majority (88 percent) of employers expect to transition some summer hires into permanent roles, up from 79 percent last year, according to CareerBuilder.

"Historically, companies have approached summer hires as people that are just there to cover for the full-time employees," said Brian Kropp, HR practice leader at global business advisory and technology company CEB, an affiliate of Gartner.

Employers need to change that mindset with the economy at full employment, he added. "They need to approach the employees they are bringing on for the summer with the goal of trying to convince the best ones that they should take a full-time job with the company after the summer, or as soon as they are able. Rather than treat summer hires as fill-ins, they need to create a great experience for them to get them to accept a full-time offer."

It might also be additional evidence that folks on the left have absolutely lost their minds.
