  • Employment Cost Index [View news story]
    Gayle,

    The recovery is getting long in the tooth, over 6 years already. No expansion last forever.

    Losing those high paying oil jobs might well be the reason that employment cost is up at such a low level. While its related jobs are also at risk, hope the tech, medical, constructions, auto and infrastructure jobs are opportunities for some of them.

  • Starbucks hits 52-week high following strong quarter, analyst praise [View news story]
    For years, we were told by the right that higher wages will destroy jobs and consumers would not tolerate higher prices to provide healthcare and benefits to those service workers. Starbucks and Costco have proven them wrong quarter after quarter and year after year.
