Welcome to the Early Edition of the Business News Headlines for Friday the 15th day of September and in a moment we'll share why we are doing an "early edition". Also, make sure you click ahead for the conversation about the historic 1850 Homestead. It's a fun family story about Norway, Illinois, Iowa and a beautiful barn that has opened for public and private events. If you want to reach us on social media and if you're on Threads you can find us @Insight_On_Business. And you can hook up with us all day on Twitter or "X" @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram. Here's what we've got for you today:
- How many UAW workers walked off the job? We'll share;
- A social media giant has been hit with a massive fine and why;
- Some Boston Market locations have re-opened and why they were closed;
- Starbucks to change their cups...will you go along with it?
- Disney, a pastor and "resisting authority". No, really;
- A quick programming note;
- It's called "retail shrink" and the numbers are massive.
For the interview you'll meet Margret Freeland Nelson whose family owned the 1850 Homestead location for generations, Kay Thompson who with her husband now own the barn and Michelle Reisberg who, along with her husband, manage the site that is now open for public and private events. It's quite the story. To listen to this fun family story click our player below.
