Some massive moves on Wall Street today as investors are in a word...spooked. Meanwhile some changes are coming regarding unemployment benefits and folks are concerned. Speaking of employment we'll be visiting today with Keenan Crow about kids, sports and gender. It's a story playing out in some 30 U.S. states. But first, the news:
- Biden says you must take that job;
- The link between jobs and the cost of goods;
- The Dow cratered today and we'll share why;
- Retirees are mad as hell at Verizon;
- The Jones Act and fuel is a story;
- The Wall Street Report;
- Our ever expanding "unfriendly skies".
Recently Governor Kim Reynolds (R-IA) surprised even members of her own party when she, on Fox News, announced she wanted a bill on her desk to deal with keeping transgender youth from participating in sports. The bill would make sure kids who self-identify their gender are not allowed in sporting activities that do not match the sex of their birth. She says it is about "fairness". Meanwhile business groups in Iowa are clamoring for highly skilled and motivated workers. We think there is a link. With me is Keenan Crow the Director of Policy and Advocacy for One Iowa. To learn more about this issue from One Iowa here is yet another link from One Iowa Action - Let Them Play.
