With the COVID Relief Bill Signed Yellen Turns Focus on Unemployment
"The big relief bill is signed now begins the sales pitch. The president and vice president and various and sundry Cabinet members are traveling or otherwise making the rounds, making their case among them. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen, which is where we come in. Yellen said on ABC over the weekend that she is hopeful will be back near full employment next year. Back near is the operative phrase there because it had been widely assumed we were at full employment. Before everything fell apart. 3.5%, if you remember was the unemployment rate in February of 2020. So with everything in the past year in this economy What you suppose full employment's gonna look like now and more to the point water policy makers at the Fed and Treasury going to do about it if and when we get there, Marketplaces Mitchell Hartman starts us off. Full employment is a perfect sweet spot for the economy. Thea unemployment rate is as low as it can get, without employers having to bid up wages through the roof to get the workers they need. Everyone who wants a job can get one and inflation doesn't soar out of control, Dean Baker at the Center for Economic and Policy Research, says. In the past, policymakers have often put the brakes on before we got to full employment. But, he says in this recovery from massive pandemic job loss, they seem to be following a more ambitious unemployment script. They really do want to press the economy to see how low we could go. That likely means getting headline unemployment down to 3.5% again. But economist Mark Paul at New College of Florida says policymakers will also try to get other measures of worker to stress and financial hardship. Down. This means looking at unemployment rates for certain groups that have traditionally been stigmatized in the labor market. Such a black workers who tend to experience unemployment rates twice that of white workers. Black unemployment is up 4% in the pandemic. For White Americans. It's up just 2.5% and many more women with kids at home have dropped out of the labor force than men. Now, job creation is accelerating, and it's likely to continue with new government stimulus.

Red flags during Philadelphia Fighting COVID partnership detailed in inspector general's report
"Of red flags during cities. Philly Fighting Covert partnership detailed an inspector general's report. Serious of missteps that led to the Health department's messy break up with Philly fighting Covad. The unraveling of the city's partnership. Became a dark cloud over the city's covert response in January with the health commissioner, Dr Farley announcing the city was cutting ties with the organization. The report from the inspector general examines a history of problems the city encountered with the group led by a 22 year old Drexel grad. When the relationship was terminated. Farley blamed the group for not informing the city it had created a for profit arm. Nor that it had updated its terms of service, allowing people's personal data collected on its website to be sold. Farley was also bothered by the group's abrupt discontinuation of covert testing services that had been run in partnership with the city for months. Yeah, it's all the group's fault. And poor Thomas Farley had No knowledge of any of it. He was an innocent victim in all of it. It makes total sense that he would turn to an untested, unproven, unknown neophyte 22 year old Drexel grand to hand out the most valuable commodity in the midst of 100 year pandemic. It makes total sense that the city's health director would say here, kid with no resume or track record. Here's the most important thing in the gateway to our city's freedom. Here, you do it. And I'll not ask questions. And then the press it large and the voting public at large in Philadelphia, all sits around and finds acceptable that the health director would say, Well, he didn't tell me what he was up to. This is acceptable leadership. From our mayor.

"Covad milestone that was once unthinkable now reality. But first for a lot of Texans, no electricity for days meant getting news was also a challenge since so many people get their news online. It is, of course, when they're not listening to perspective on the radio. If you live in Australia, you wouldn't have seen news on one major social media feed for a few days. There is a reason for that, and it could reshape the relationship between news and social media in this country. ABC News producer Mike Dubowski has the story. Facebook in Australia usually looks pretty much the same as Facebook in any other country. But for a few days last week, the platform looked very different, unnecessary and heavy hand and that's what the treasurer Has labeled Facebook's restriction of all news pages as the fight between the federal government and the tech giant grows. His book turned off the news for Australians last week, news organizations couldn't post to their official pages. Australian residents couldn't share links to news articles. And even if you weren't in the country, Facebook restricted you from posting stories from Australia's news outlets. It was deliberately disruptive and very much achieved its goal. That's David Pierce, editor in chief of protocol. He says that All started with a hotly debated piece of legislation. That's got a very complicated name, the news media and digital platforms mandatory bargaining code, which is a bunch of words that essentially mean the Australian government. Wanted to pass legislation that they hoped would reset the balance between publishers and big tech companies. Be online platforms are under scrutiny in Australia and around the world for how they handled news content, which is important because social media is where a lot of people get their news of report last year from market research firm Roy Morgan found 38% of Australians consider Social Media their main source of news. That's nearly eight million people stateside. Pew Research finds More than half of Americans get their news. From social media often or sometimes this new Australian legislation would require those tech companies to pay news publishers to appear on the platforms at all. Otherwise they'd risk and even heftier payout. They would be required to make deals with publishers and if they didn't They would be forced to go into arbitration, which means that they would sit with the publishers and the government and the government would decide how much big tech companies should have to pay publishers. This all came to a head last week when it seemed inevitable. The bill would pass the law hadn't passed, but it became clear that it was going to in some way. So Facebook Said. Well, okay, here we go and shut off news on Facebook. It wasn't just news that got shut off, either. Certain Australian government organizations got caught up in the band crucial services like fire and rescue pages. A weather forecaster and even one of Facebook's own pages were wiped from the platform temporarily. Pierce says the collateral damage was no accident. This is sort of a deliberate move on Facebook's part, Maura's a bargaining tactic than anything to just say. Like we can remove news and look how bad it's going to be and news publishers in the country quickly saw how much of their audience came from just Facebook traffic to Australian news outlets was down about 13%, according to analytics firm Chart beat So with pressure building from all sides. Australian Parliament made some last minute changes to the legislation. The Australian government caved basically so there are now new amendments in this media code. Let's say essentially that Facebook and other companies have more leeway over which publishers they choose to do deals with instead of being forced to do deals with every publisher everywhere, And it says that the government should take into account whether Facebook and Google are good for the news business before deciding if this law even applies to them. By midweek, Facebook had begun restoring news content in Australia. The company says it's already cut a deal with publishers seven West media and is working on doing the same with another organization called nine Entertainment. Worth mentioning Other tech giants, most notably Google are also on the hook for this, but Pierce says that company took a different approach. It just needs news for the search engine to work. So Googles. Only other move would've been to just leave the country entirely. But you didn't want to do so. It wound up making deals with the publishers in roughly the way that the Australian government would have wanted them to. Google has since announced a deal with News Corp. Which owns and operates a slew of newspapers and TV channels in the country. The modified law passed Australian Parliament on Thursday. I move that the amendments the agreed to Question is that the amendment is agreed to Allies of that opinion, say Aye. The country. No. The eyes have it. And though it appears the social media landscape is returning to some form of normalcy down under the incident did catch the attention of some other countries. That's the main reason you're hearing this story from the American Broadcasting Company. In addition to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Yes, there are two separate ABC News is, Pierce says the international attention is a big part of the reason Facebook acted in such a dramatic way. There are countries like Canada, who said explicitly they're watching to see what happens and I think if this had gone through and it had actually brought Google and Facebook To heal. To some extent, I think you would have seen a lot of other countries. Pick this up pretty fast. So that's why for Facebook, it was important to come out and say, Essentially, we are more powerful than you are, by the way, the Australian ABC News at the one that takes you directly to their website shot to the top of the APP store charts last week, briefly becoming the most downloaded app in Australia. That's.

And they know if they rule against the Biden and they're gonna have protesters and rioters surrounding their house for about six months. So why would you risk that? I don't think so. Not to mention the Democrats threatened them that they would pack the courts. If you're these three new justices. And you think there's something to be 25. You'll get lost in that crowd. They were just scared that they didn't rule against anything. They just said We don't want to hear the case. We too. Please go somewhere else. Don't bring this here. Well, you know, Donald Trump. Really? Well, I mean, I guess he doesn't handle losing well at anything. Well, I knew George Steinbrenner very well. And he used to say, Show me a good loser, and I'll show you a loser. No, you know you're not supposed to handle it Well on Donald Trump is a guy who and they all these great billionaires are like this when you really wiped them out. That's when they're the most dangerous. Paint them into a corner and then watch out. They come Roaring back, and I don't know what his next move is. But if you ask me 67 years ago, and what's his next move, I've never would've said become president who knows what he'll do next. Do you think he'll remain politically active? Yeah, Absolutely. Definitely. He could. I don't know They have all these theories, and these are just theories. He's never made a move or a thought in this direction. But all these theories he's going to run a TV network. I don't think you'll ever do that. That's a total nightmare. He may do a big TV show or creative streaming platforms. Some platform, but he's not gonna run a TV network. And then, uh, this is talking about running a shadow government. Uh, no. I think he'll just he'll figure out a way. I think you'll see those rallies. On they might be paid rallies. I think they'll get bigger than ever, although it's a little harder when you're not the president to have the motorcade, the Air Force one all that stuff, But I think whatever he's gonna really do next, I don't think he's figured it out. And I don't think it's anything we can imagine. Guys like this. Just come up with something I never even thought of. Normally a ex president kind of fades away into the background. I don't see Trump doing that. I assume you don't either. No. Look at these ex presidents, their professional politicians. They do nothing. Look at Bush all paint. I'll do watercolor. If that's what a career that is, Uh, well give Bill Clinton credit. He found quite a hobby to keep myself occupied through the years. But guys like Trump your basis or any anything's billionaires. That's how they get to be guys like that. They never stop. And I don't care how much you wiped them out. They come back even bigger than ever..
