Ten jobs with the highest labour surplus 2015-25:
Manufacturing jobs. Coal mining jobs. The jobs that once made America great.
Support in these regions played a large role in handing Mr. Trump his upset victory on Election Day.
The same forces that have automated the factory floor are helping robots infiltrate industries such as trucking and energy extraction, an evolution that propels businesses to require fewer, more highly-educated workers.
“Why? Because 20th century machines have substituted not just for manual human tasks, but cognitive ones too. The set of human skills machines could reproduce, at lower cost, has both widened and deepened.”
The first stirrings of the revolution cropped up in mid-18th century England, but from then to the mid-19th century real wages barely moved. And to benefit from the revolution’s job boom, people had to move to cities that were hellish to live in – they were crime-ridden and full of diseases.
That means it took roughly 200 years to truly benefit, and prospering required the rise of trade unions and the development of the social safety net.
Sept. 2, 2017 "The labour market's hole in the middle": Today I found this article by Rachelle Younglai in the Globe and Mail. It was a big 2 page article and you have to be a subscriber to read it, I couldn't copy and paste it here.
It mainly mentions how there is a high soar of temp jobs because companies can't pay for permanent full-time people. The companies can't control "like rise expenses in corporate taxes, hydro, regulatory costs, min. wage hikes and the exchange rate."
Sept. 1, 2017 Donald Trump donates to Hurricane Harvey:
President Trump will donate $1 million towards
The president said he will donate his personal money, according to Sanders, although she could not say with certainty that the president meant his own bank account and not the Donald J. Trump Foundation. Mr. Trump, who will visit Texas Saturday since the deadly storm hit, has yet to pick a charity and is open to suggestions, Sanders said. relief in Texas, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday.
Sanders said she would "assume" the money comes from the president's personal funding, as that is how he phrased it.
My opinion: I don't like him, but then again he is donating money so I will give him points for that.
Sept. 2, 2017 Drake donates: With the after effects of Hurricane Harvey becoming disturbingly visible, more and more celebrities are making attempts to aide those in dire need. On Thursday morning (Aug. 31), Drake officially tossed his name into the ring and announced that he would donate $200,000 towards Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
Sept, 1 2017 The Leftovers Foundation: I was at work, and in the staff room the TV news was on:
A local group of volunteers is fighting to keep good food out of the garbage and help it into the mouths of the hungry.
The Leftovers Foundation started in Calgary, but in the last year it’s been gaining traction in Edmonton, thanks to a group of young leaders in the city.
“We do that by being a link between vendors — a cafe, grocery store, hotel, restaurant and a service agency.”
Hobbins is part of the Global Shapers, a group of entrepreneurial Edmontonians between the ages of 20 and 30 that want to help improve the city.
With Leftovers, volunteers sign up online to pick up donated food and drop it off where it’s needed.
“COBS Bread is one of our providers, we collect a lot of bread from them,” Hobbins said.
“Blush Lane gives us a lot of produce and fresh food. We also have a few cafes that will give us fresh soup and sandwiches that they made that day.”
Right now, volunteers with Leftovers are preparing for their biggest single collection — hundreds of pounds of food from Edmonton’s biggest summer festival.
“We’ve actually just taken on a really cool new project with K-Days,” Hobbins explained.
The group is looking for volunteers with a vehicle to help transport the food. You can sign up online.
Leftovers rescued more than 2,800 lbs. of food at the Calgary Stampede.
Aug. 31, 2017: It was so busy for me this week.
Sun. Aug. 27, 2017: I worked all day.
Mon. Aug. 28, 2017: I worked all day.
Tues. Aug. 29, 2017: I got called at 10am from my boss at the 2nd restaurant job. She really needed me to work because she wasn't there and another worker wasn't there. After that I took the bus to my other job in the west end. I slept a bit on the bus.
Wed. Aug. 30, 2017: I worked at my 2nd restaurant job. I then went home and slept a bit. After that I took the bus to my other job in the west end.
I didn't watch any TV on Tues. and Wed. It's only these 2 days that I had to work at 2 different places.
There is some work-life balance because I read the newspaper before and between work.
Thurs. Aug. 31, 2017: I worked a few hrs at my 2nd restaurant job. I then was able to sit outside and read the news in my backyard.
Sept. 1, 2017 Donor call centre job interview: I did this interview a couple of weeks ago. The job is to call people and ask them to donate money to this charity. This is at a hospital.
3. I can do the job and I have done call centres before.
4. The pay is $12.50 to start. It may vary for someone with experience.
5. It's for charity.
None. Maybe that it's at night and I prefer daytime.
My opinion: I would work there if I got hired.
The highlight of the week: I never thought I would say this, but the best part of the week was that I worked so much. It's because I haven't worked a lot this year.
