TPP Dead, Trump Promises Future Trade Deals Will Create Jobs, Not Lose Them

TPP doomed, big win for American workers.

Last Pre-Election BLS Report is Spectacularly Underwhelming

Analysts hoped that the October economy would have generated 175,000 new jobs. The actual number the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported was even less inspiring, 161,000 of the usual low-paying, part-time jobs.

Macy’s Shutting Stores, Fewer Job Opportunities for Americans, but Immigration Grinds On

Macy’s is closing 100 of its 776 retail stores. Looked at as a corporate decision, the closings make sense. Macy’s wants to emphasis its online business, and many of the stores to be shuttered are old.
