This is a super tight labor market. And it's no longer enough to pay fifteen dollars an hour which amazon's base wage many companies feel that they need to offer even more perks even more reasons for people to one apply or wanna stay with the company and so i think this is really an effort meant to not only lur new people to the company but to keep those some of those existing employees for a little bit longer

Why Its Expensive to Be Poor
"They say it takes money to make money. It's true and it's also true that it costs money when you don't have money or a better way to put it. It's expensive to be poor. This is jubal added things. Food is more expensive when you don't have a local grocery store or can't afford to buy in bulk wants to carry a ten gallon jug of pickles on the subway. Not me housing is more expensive when you have to stay in a motel because you can't afford a security deposit to rent an apartment in many other random little things. Add up like how it costs more over time to do your laundry at a laundromat when you can't afford a washer and dryer but today we're just a focus on banking and how it is more expensive to manage your money when you don't have a lot of it while cashing your paycheck and paying your bills is pretty tedious for most of us. It's actually a challenge for those who are poor or lack stable income. A few years back many big banks realized they weren't making enough money off of small accounts so instead of offering free no minimum balance checking accounts the kind popular with many low income customers. They decided to require minimum bounces and customers. Pablo that threshold. They have to pay a monthly see. That's right if you don't have enough money in your checking account you have to pay the bank ten to fifteen dollars that you probably don't have because if you did you'd have it in your checking

Two thousand twenty one on their website. Well who watches the tv. Show curse of oak island. I think matt has watched every episode. And i think they're still searching for treasure but i came across an interesting article about one of the guys on the show. I guess tony sampson had a strange situation happen about a year ago tony's frequently on the show and he runs a tour company called salty door. Salty dog tours. Well he was taking some tourists out when one of his guests hat blew off so quickly turned the boat around to fetch the hat. And that's when he spotted something else a voter in the water. Apparently the boater was on his maiden voyage with this new boat when it capsized and he couldn't get to his life jacket because it was tied to the boats seat ono so tony fortunately rescued the voter in what is called the oak island triangle triangle. I guess the boat subsequently washed up on oak island now at least those guys found something there about a year ago. Olympus announced that they were getting out of the digital imaging business and that they would not be making cameras any longer and that would have been a shame if these Tech this technology went by the wayside.

Here's some sobering news out of florida. The manatees are under stress as of june fourth. This year. Seven hundred and eighty two manatees have died in two thousand twenty one alone and that's a one hundred and fifty one percent increase from the three hundred and thirty one that died during the same period last year to put this in perspective. The record number of deaths for manatees in a year is eight hundred. Twenty one or eight hundred and twenty four and that was in two thousand eighteen. This increase is so dramatic that representative vern buchanan from florida wrote a letter to the us fish and wildlife services to change their status from threatened to endanger and that's the highest level of protection here in the us. The florida manatee used to be on the endangered list until two thousand and seventeen when their numbers rose. Above six thousand six hundred they now estimate a census of about seventy five hundred but as we can see that number is going in the wrong direction. Now what's the cause food availability. The seagrass is being killed off by oversaturation of nutrients and the manatees simply. Starve to death. Not sure how a change in status will solve the sad scenario but we need to start someplace.

"President Biden says there is an urgent need for a generational investment in the nation's infrastructure the president was confident during a public transit center in lacrosse Wisconsin I think we're gonna get a pass some Republicans have questioned whether it's wise to pass a bipartisan infrastructure bill if it's linked to a party line budget reconciliation bill the president has been promising millions of new jobs not minimum wage jobs not fifteen dollar an hour job prevailing wage job paying jobs and our roads and our bridges president Biden says the infrastructure bill isn't just the sum of its parts it's a signal to ourselves and to the world that American democracy can come through and deliver for all our people we can't be nine Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell said he has not yet decided whether he'll support the bipartisan package at Donahue Washington
Keeping Kids Safe Around Water this Summer
"After you've had this experience what do you wish you would have done differently. I think leads really well into our second takeaway here. That was a great question in. You're exactly right so easy to just say. Oh well i was watch my kids. I mean i was on the couch. Though he was sitting on the couch. You know ten feet away from me. The room was filled with people young. Since read this line that everybody is watching the pool. The nobody's watching the pool and is usually the settings when it happens from there is a big people when we were just sort of all busy like just cleaning up in things in and it was so fast but the second takeaway. But i wish we'd really known with levi that we should have had layers of protection in place since toddlers most often drown when they aren't expected water. Those layers are so important looking back. There were so many things that we should have done differently. It was really hate to call it because there's nothing perfect about it but the perfect storm in a sense. The first layer of protection supervision. We weren't supervising and we were all in the room tons of supervision. Too much supervision. I guess really so but that layer failed. We did not see him. Slip out that back door. The door could have been dead bolted. It wasn't could have been door alarm but again we were on vacation. These more things that that we had now. Of course i could have even ordered portable amazon. Fifteen dollars brought them with could have asked my husband go sit on the balcony it till we go crap hunting. We didn't even realize. We thought kids john when they were swimming so it wasn't like something that was like really on our radar and going back to the supervision. Bet so what you're saying there is when there's all the adults watching. None of the adults are watching right. So when you're swimming when you're around water you need to have one adult that is in charge of watching one child or designated the toddler because otherwise you think everybody's watching the children s. This cannot be emphasized enough during the transition tons. I'm not even talking about when you're swimming. It is when you go inside to eat lunch. It is when you go inside for the birthday party to open the presence. It is when you're packing up the car. When the cookout is over and the two year old one all stories these are all the parents i know are the stories it. You're packing up. The car from the fourth of july cookout and the three year olds somehow makes her way back to the pool from the front yard where you thought they were helping. Load the stuff in the car. This is when it is happening

President Joe Biden Proposes $6 Trillion Budget
"Joe six trillion dollar man massive spending and Yeah let's hide all the power grab moves. Maneuvers were doomed behind the scenes. That didn't come up much last night. Door to the border come up last night. Either very interesting but six trillion dollars and that's just the down payment climate change. I think jobs american jobs plan put engineers and construction workers work building more energy efficient buildings and homes there simply no reason why the blades for wind turbines can't be building pittsburghers beijing. There's no reason. Why american workers can't league the world new production of electric vehicles in batters. There's no reason. How do we pay for my and family plan. I made it clear you do without increasing the deficit. Let's start with what. I will not to impose any tax increase on people making less than four hundred thousand dollars. But it's time for corporate america and the wealthiest one percent of americans have just began to pay their fair share. Mr share but wall street country. The middle class built the country and unions built the middle class. So that's why. I'm calling on congress to pass. Protect the right to organize the proactive. And send it to my desk so we can support the right to unionize and by the way you're thinking about sending things on my desk. Let's raise the minimum wage to fifteen dollars. No one no one working forty hours a week working forty hours a week should live below the poverty line. We need to ensure greater inequity opportunity for women while we're doing this. Let's get the paycheck fairness act to my desk as well. Equal pay spent much too long. And if you wonder whether it's too long look behind you
Is Tutu Atwell Too Small to Succeed in the NFL? - burst 08
"Now to god. The i know that you are extremely enthusiastic about Terrence marshall going to the panthers. Twenty seven th pick of the second round just a few picks after escorts from lsu tears marshall to the panthers. What are your thoughts on this cal. I'll pick it a fantastic lang spot. you know. I think i was super high on marshall. Probably highest of just about anybody in the industry All all college season. And all you know predrag and my my enthusiasm is not where one bit. I love the landing spot where some people might be turned off on it You know I know that he is not maybe going to be immediately. Be the number. One with robby anderson and with dj more there. But i think he's going to have a clear role from day one because if you look at his body type and how profiles ios not just a big bodied receiver he also is a a burner to i mean he is true burner and You know high jump. High catch radius any any provides the wide receivers did not do as your which was give a teddy bridgewater. Now is going to be darnold. But they didn't have anybody to score in the red zone. You know everything. They they scored was from like you know deeper out or the the running backs the mike davis or you know. But they really didn't have anybody in the red zone that they could produce. So i think marshall steps in right away and could be. I bet he has a real legitimate chance at leading all rookies in in receiving touchdowns ex year. So you know it's somebody that i like. As far as a talent. I think he can easier to age. Well in that offense because He is going back with his former college coach. Now the head coach of the of the panthers. So i think that this guy drafted him whereas he might have fallen a little bit in. Nfl draft because there was a little bit uncertainty right before the draft about some of his medical history. I don't think coach takes them at high if he has any type about about the about his foot injury so i think that this is going to be the guy that's going to be all help you. Now you're gonna have some flashes. He's going to be probably inconsistent. Probably a lot like a like. I kind of value him a lot. Like the where i had claypool asher whereas i kind of knew that there was going to be a lot of competition for targets but i knew that there was gonna be a lot of upset especially if somebody gets hurt And i just think that there's gonna be a lotta touchdown and he's a big guy when people start really understanding how much of a freak athlete is. Don't be surprised if this guy is being compared as maybe even number one wide receiver in this class next year. That's that's how upside. i see you know. I do think chases a better prospect but you know they were on the same team and You know even on the team with jefferson and chase He marshall was extremely valuable piece of their natural shape team. I mean he. I think he had like fourteen touchdowns or something you know. And he had costa twenty yard per catch average on the team. I mean he he really is a tremendous player and then when those two guys left last year you know he played over about a. I don't know about six or seven seven games. you opted out. And he averaged one hundred and fifteen dollars. You're talking about more leading devante smith. It was really. I believe tears marshall who bleeding the country in yards per game you know before he opted out and he also was averaging close to two touchdowns a game you know and this same competition is all those. Stc guy so. I just liked body. I can't i hate to sound like a broken record. But i really do like big receivers. It's not the smaller wide. Receivers can't thrive in that bayer wide receivers don't bust. I just think that when you historically look at all the body types of players that are generally over six foot in there like over two hundred pounds to twenty six. I'd say two to twenty is about the average. You know we get the top hand wide receiver fantasy for fancy standpoint every year. That's probably about the average. So i like my guys. That profile big catch raises. So i just feel like they're more consistent with a when when you get that's capable of being a possession receiver getting first downs and touchdowns. I i like their consistency versus having a field stretcher. We might put up forty points in a game lake. You kyle i am. I am feeling good about carrots. Marshall and about what he's gonna do in his nfl career. The only hold back that. I have with taras marshall and again this could be viewed as a positive based on what i'm going to say in a second is so terrorist marshall hops into offense with dj more lobbying said in christian. Mccaffrey already there. So you're already looking at the possibility of being the fourth target there in carolina which i deal and add that to the fact that sam darnold who i think everyone considers at this point to be in the bottom. Half of the starting quarterbacks is throwing the ball to terrence. Marshall this is this is clearly not ideal so short term. There are some concerns. I do think like you that he's going to be great in the red zone. Short term era. You're gotta be thinking while sam. Donna already has connected to robinson clearly. The carolina organization views. Dj moore's or number receiver cj. Metcalf a christian mccaffrey a year a year ago. He broke the record for the most receptions for running back in a single season ever. She has to view him almost as a receiver. At this point with the matt of receptions which is insane that he's getting one hundred receptions i think it was a year or two ago so that that's not ideal but dynasty football dicey football so not necessarily great redraft person. In my opinion but dynasty football is about the long game and the long game. I see in the long game i see turns marshall absolutely thriving because we don't know a five we anderson's gonna be in carolina long-term. We don't know what the scenario is going to be with. Sam darnold or with christian mccaffrey. Dj more but we know the is one of the best receivers in this class in. He is talented enough will were at some point career. He will get an opportunity probably sooner rather than later if not this year to really showcase what he can do and he has the talent to be a number one receiver. I love his size. I loved as a big bodied receiver. That's a great fan a red zone. There are a lot of good things about terrence marshall and so what i was saying earlier is the fact that not going to be good in the short term is almost a positive here for you as a dynasty are because now we're seeing him fall to the third fourth fifth round pick of the second round which is lower than it should be gone if anything. This guy should be going at the back half of the first half so now because the term concern that comes with marshall. Now you're gonna be able to go up there and gets terrorist marshall and you're not gonna have to reach from either he's probably just gonna fall right in your laps and you're gonna walk is one of the biggest winners in your dynasty graphs. Because here's a guy that has a potential to be a top five receiver in this
Amazon First Quarter Results 2021
"Hey here with your flash briefing. Happy monday hope. You are doing well periodically when we get the first quarter results amazon. I'd like to share these with you. To get a sense of how the company is doing and certainly echo devices and sales and amazon lexi has a ton to do with how amazon is doing so their first quarter results for twenty twenty.

Their net sales increased forty four percent to one hundred and eight point five billion dollars in the first quarter compared with seventy five point five billion in the first quarter a year ago excluding the two point one billion favorable impact from the year over year changes in foreign exchange rates the net sales increased forty one percent compared to the first quarter of twenty twenty pretty impressive stuff and no doubt that had a lot to do with that and people ordering things through amazon had such a rapid rate I think the last thing. I'll just leave you with their knitting net income increase to eight point one billion in the first quarter or fifteen dollars and seventy nine cents per diluted share and that was compared with an income of two point five billion or five dollars and one cent per diluted share in the first quarter of twenty twenty.

We order a ton more things through amazon and we also tried doing some voice ordering of products as well through our echo
Rep. Pramila Jayapal on What Progressives Think of Joe Biden Now
"Congresswoman giant. Paul thank you very much. For coming to the podcast. It's great to be with you. Jonathan okay so. President biden just gave a joint session speech to the american people where he outlined a huge agenda. Very forward-looking agenda of for the american people in for his presidency. You're the chair of the progressive the congressional progressive caucus all during the campaign. All the talk was about. How progressives didn't want joe biden and wants to biden and got elected How progressives were going to be giving joe biden the blues and they're going to be fighting with him since you are the chair of the progressive caucus. What grade would you give him. Well you know what i have said. Is that progressives have helped define this moment. The campaign last year was an example of that the push over the last ten years for a fifteen dollars. Minimum wage by progressive says actually made mainstream today so jonathan i always say progressives are the first to the best and most just idea and then we have to push like hell to get everybody else there. But joe biden has risen to the moment And i think you know. He came into office recognizing the crises of racial inequality of the pandemic of unemployment. So many things that americans never thought we would see food lines around the block as he talked about in his speech and he has come out with a very bold agenda of very progressive agenda. He has taken the virus under control. in a way that you know we only had dreamed about last year but now two hundred million shots in arms in just ninety nine days we feel like there's a light at the end of the tunnel so so far joe biden has been doing a very good job on on the present in the presidency and now we just have to make sure that that continues that he leans into it just as much with the american jobs and families plan which by the way we want to be one package that he leans into even things that are going to be difficult which he has done with tax reform. But even bigger than that. Jonathan i think what progressives are most excited about is that finally there is a frame for the conversation that has been the progressive blends for a very long time and that is that government has the ability to really give opportunity and correct many of the wrongs that have been there before. And it is. The problem is not going to big. It is going to small. And i've heard those words come out of joe biden's rouse
Biden to sign $15 minimum wage for federal contract workers
"President but it is preparing to sign an executive order to increase the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour for federal contractors I'm Julie Walker administration officials say the order will provide a pay bump to hundreds of thousands of those workers they say the workers will become more productive as a result so the increase should not be costly to taxpayers the increase to be approved under today's executive order could be dramatic for workers who are in the current minimum of ten dollars and ninety five cents an hour those workers would receive up thirty seven percent pay hike though the increase would be rolled out gradually under the terms of the order
Cheers to the Side Hustle
"Has opened up the world. The people i mean anything that you do in the privacy of your home and love to do you can now make a profit out. Absolutely i think i just kind of takes them work and you can do local festivals and i mean even online shops not even going through oetzi but taking it to that next level. I have a client.

Obviously kind of launching a new product if we're talking about hobbies specifically rather than a service. It's easy you're so excited.

Like if i'm selling a blanket for fifteen dollars but it can cost me. Thirteen to make you know and not just the product itself. But my time. I mean you've got to take all of those factors into the equation
What Is Manufactured Spending?
"What is manufactured spending breakdown. I like this website. Doctor of credit breaks it down. They give an excellent summary to me and what they say is manufacturer. Spending is the process of purchasing cash equivalence with the rewards earning credit card where the rewards earned are greater than the fees incurred. It can be used for meeting. Minimum spending requirements are just racking up frequent flyer meyer miles with your favourite airline or hotel partner so i think breaking down a little bit more. What does does that mean like getting a gift card and then doing something with that gift cards. So it's like if you get if you have a credit card and you aren't frequent flyer miles or your rewards on every cash on every purchase which you can do is you could buy gift card and then you could sell that gift card and use the proceeds to pay off the credit card. So it's like the credit card bill. Let's say you buy hundred dollar gift card and then you pay off that hundred dollar gift card and maybe sell in for ninety dollars but you're awards was like ten percent so you can maybe like fifteen dollars back or something so you're in fifteen dollars and technically you spent nothing interest on the credit card. So that's the manufacturers spending idea that's the idea of using gaining more rewards and it's paying off your credit card using not your own money but the credit cards money absolutely so via travelers dot com guys if you're new woken free. All of our links are available on the website at Dot com so yeah via travelers dot com also says that essentially by artificially spending by either purchasing virtual gift cards products tools or services at the lowest cost possible. It is a you can think of this manufacturer. Spending spending arbitrage is how they describe it so they went into saying if you if you could earn say five percent cashback spending money at a store but it only costs you less than one percent to transact your inherently making money on that purchase which is interesting and and all these different ways because you can do it through gift cards be you can also do like you said through the frequent travelers thing travel rewards different things. You not you technically get it for free if you're able to sell whatever you purchase a credit card

"For you you just order chopped vegetables. And so that eliminates that job from your kitchen on your them from an area that doesn't have the thirteen or fifteen dollars minimum wage. So there than they date yourself. Yes. Those vegetables might be chopped in Mexico. Sample another thing that he mentioned, and this is something that we see quite a bit in Seattle. So there's a move away from table service restaurants to order at the counter type restaurants. So if you're a magic a restaurant where you go you sit down someone comes to take your order that person's on the clock. You have someone delivering your food their hours on the clock. You have someone bussing your table their hours round the clock. The new. Style of restaurant in Seattle and actually one of the closest restaurants to my house. Did this transition over the past couple years, you go you order at the counter, they call out your number your name when the food's ready? So you are the one transporting your food to the table. You are the one bussing your table when you're done. And so basically what had been tasks that were accomplished by low wage workers on the clock are now being accomplished by unpaid person, which is the customer. So little tweaks like this. That's that's how restaurants have coped. And it's absolutely true that the restaurant industry in Seattle is buying large doing fine. There are some closings. But there are quite a number of openings as well. Our efforts to try to understand whether the minimum wage has impacted the business opening and closing rate have have generally found that we don't find any effect. But what we do find is that the the patterns of openings and closings are steering the city towards less labor intensive restaurants. So we're moving away from full service were moving towards order at the counter and other forms of of serving people food that involves fewer labor hours. So does that show up directly? I mean, obviously. I don't know how her that is to measure it if you have that in the data. So even if you had the same number restaurant, you could have a reduction in those labor hours, you're suggesting key you measure it. Yeah. We actually do have the capacity to estimate effects on the number of hours worked in the restaurant industry. So the the biggest reduction in hours worked in the restaurant industry. We found is amongst the lowest paid workers which to. Out a restaurant that has done away with the busboy. Because now the customers are bussing dishes. You're getting rid of the lowest paid worker in the establishment. And then the people who are earning higher wages, the people who are actually cooking the food, and who do the customer service tasks like taking the orders at the counter, they are gonna tend to be higher paid because you need a slightly higher skill level to do something like cook food to order. You know, I think that the statistics that I've seen suggest that for a lot of people with even a little bit of experience. It's quite easy to find work. Well, above the minimum wage as high as it is in Seattle. It's just that these there these other categories of jobs that have fallen. So that busboy is in your data set and was earning nine or ten or whatever it was before this legislation. And now, they're just what what do you see do you see them doing something else at with fewer hours? You see them only working one part time job instead of to. What are you saying they're, yeah? So if if you're a busboy in twenty fourteen at like, let's say in February twenty fourteen so the minimum wage doesn't start going up until April. Then you had at least some experience when the minimum wage starts going up. And so what we're finding is that those those people who are in entry level jobs at the time the minimum wage went up. They are more or less breaking even. So there might be a tendency for them to witness a reduction hours..
