I'm Kai rizal corporate governance is where we go now and a ruling by a state judge out here in California last week that a law requiring publicly traded companies to include women on their boards of directors is unconstitutional. A similar California law requiring ethnic and racial diversity on boards was likewise struck down last month. So marketplace is Meghan mccarty carino has more now. On what that might mean for the future of corporate diversity. In the latest case, the judge ruled that establishing quotas for women on boards is ironically, in conflict with anti discrimination law, says professor David Levine at UC Hastings college of law. Whenever your mind that the reason to do this is that these boards have been dominated by white men forever and ever. But nevertheless, it's seen as its not putting people on an equal footing. The California law had been an important impetus to address more diversity, and its reversal could be a setback, says Megan Wang, with the board list, an organization that helps find diverse directors. Despite having all of this education and data that already suggests better business outcomes for organizations, there still hesitancy. Since the law took effect in 2019, the share of women on boards at companies in the Russell 3000 climbed from 17 to 32% in California, according to the nonprofit, 50 50 women on boards. But it's not just law that is driving progress on this issue, says Lyndon Taylor, with executive search firm, hedrick and struggles, which tracks the board composition of Fortune 500 companies. It's hard to go back. That has you make progress. The progress may slow, but things will still move forward. He expects gender parody on boards within the next 5 years, though racial and ethnic representation are still far behind. I'm.

I'm Kai rizal the economic restrictions that are tightening around Russia aren't all about financials or currencies or oligarchs and their assets. Over the weekend, both the European Union and Canada banned Russian aircraft from their airspace there is pressure on the United States to do the same we should say. Russia in turn has responded by banning European flights. And while that has affected passenger planes, yes, it has also made a mess more of a mess I grant you of the global supply chain. So we got Gretchen blau on the phone this morning. She is the customs broker at a company called logistics plus an eerie PA who we talked to every now and then about logistics and shipping. And here's what she had to say. We're seeing an increase in cost, especially air freight, all the planes have been rerouted. There's all these connecting flights, and there's all kinds of commercial flights that have been interrupted because of this. And most air cargo does travel on commercial flights. So that's been quite an impact there. We have some air charters that we've booked coming from China to the U.S. with COVID test kits. And that's increased by half a $1 million so far. We do have an office in Ukraine. So we're all pretty worried about them. Our ops team works with them quite a bit. There's a lot of close relationships there and we're quite worried about our team over there. Are European counterparts are quite worried as well. They want to help. A lot of our European colleagues have reached out and offered lodging, clothing, transportation, whatever is needed to our colleagues in Ukraine. So far, 7 of our colleagues have been evacuated from Ukraine to Poland and Romania. And they're staying with either Friends of our company or actual employees of our company. We're going to be watching this situation in Ukraine quite closely not only from the perspective of our office over there, but just how this might spread. There's all kinds of stuff we have to watch. There's weather. There's fuel prices. There's a lot of stuff that comes into play in the supply training port congestion. This is just one more thing that impacts the supply chain. Unfortunately, it has a huge human cost and that that probably makes it the worst thing of all. Sometimes you just sit around doing the paperwork. You don't think about the ripple effect of everything involved in the supply chain. Before it was just kind of a job, you know, an interesting job, but now I see the impact that my job has. Throughout the country throughout even my local community, you know, making sure that stuff is on the store shelves. So kind of gives us insight into how important it really is. To be involved in the supply chain. Gretchen blauer customs broker an eerie Pennsylvania. We told you about that new and dire UN report yesterday that climate change is quickly getting to a point where adaptation just ain't going to be possible anymore. Too much carbon in the air for us to do anything about it. So how about a story about one small effort to reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that are homes produced? Every year the national association of home builders unveils what it calls the new American home, a model home designed to wow attendees at its annual international builders show held as it happens. Not too long ago. This year's model is in the Lake Nona neighborhood of Orlando, Florida, and it just sold for $2.7 million, which believe it or not, is low for the typical new American home. It boasts some green building certifications, as well as something you might start seeing more of in new houses. Net zero energy. Marketplace is Amy Scott tried to figure out what that really means. Walking into the 4600 ft² new American home, sustainability isn't the first thing that leaps to mind. Obviously I know that the wine room has grabbed your attention.

For some more regulation marketplaces into Euler caught up with some of the folks in Midland that he's been talking to you to hear what is on their minds. Petroleum historian Diana Hiten has lived in the Midland area since 1973. She's written a number of books on the industry and says there's always concern in this part of the country, which is overwhelmingly Republican when Democrats take office in D. C. But this one is new, she says. That's mostly because environmental concerns and climate change have now become a big part of the public discussion and fracking, which has made oil companies a lot of money in the past decade is an important issue for a lot of people. And so there are a lot of important things. For the industry to be concerned about now that warrant as much a matter of concern. Let's say, 10 years ago. I think there is a fear out there that Biden is going to just shut down the whole industry. Grant Schwartzwalder is president of OT, a compression environmental on oil field environmental consulting firm. If he does that, then Yes, it would hurt me and hurt the whole industry. But ah, logically speaking, That's really, really hard to see that really happening, he says. There are a lot of regulatory rollbacks during the Trump administration, but they were more about how strictly the rules were enforced than changes to the rules themselves. In the coming years, he expects more fines and more stringent inspections. Diana Hinton says the Midland community knows that more regulation will likely increase the cost of doing business at a time when the price of oil is just $40 a barrel. What they are more concerned about is that as a town we have not diversified away from the petroleum industry. We depend absolutely on the oil industry for our prosperity.

One more now, on the theme of the day that the easy part of this recovery has done that A whole lot of people are in the process of being left behind. Behind is what a lot of people are on their mortgages. The data company Black, Knight says nearly three million mortgages are in what's called active for Barents. That means borrowers have reduced or paused their payments. Ability to do that We should say without penalty was part of the cares act. Now this is the lowest that forbearance is have been since mid April. But the worrying thing is that the number of mortgage is going into four. Barents is going up marketplaces Amy Scott has that one. About a year and a half ago, Emily Allen Smith quit her job at the Red Cross to turn her gardening hobby into a farming business in Plymouth, Ohio. She sells specialty produce, like heirloom tomatoes and Mexican sour gherkins to high end restaurants. It very much depended on that close personal relationship with the chef. That's really been the struggle the stairs. A lot of chefs have quit in a lot of the restaurants serving at capacity, so back in May, struggling to pay their $800 a month mortgage, she and her husband asked their lender toe, let them postpone their payments. You know that they're not gonna take your house away right now, So I'm going to spend my money on who then? Other things that aren't as protected Alan Smith's mortgages among the 2.9 million in active for Barents. That's down 40% from the peak in May. But in the past week, 87,000 more loans have gone into for parents, the highest volume since mid April. There's still a lot of stress out there in the market right now. Black Knight economist Andy Walden says. A lot of those are people restarting plans that had expired. The cares act allowed borrowers with federally backed mortgages to pause their payments for six months, with the option to extend for another six months without additional aid from Congress. Edmund's wind ski with the U. S Public Interest Research Group, says we may see more homeowners needing relief. There's no question that individual consumers and families are paying the brunt.

"Kai Rizal alongside the uncertainty of the presidential race. There were actually some conclusive and oh, by the way, kind of interesting to note results last night. So two stories. Now along those lines Proposition 22 here in California, put the gig economy on the ballot. It lets uber and lift and Gord Ash and The rest of the big gig platforms classify their drivers as contractors instead of employees at one By a lot and his marketplaces Megan McArdle, Karina reports now from the workplace Culture desk. That means it could play out well beyond California's borders. Without this ballot measure, California would have forced a dramatic reshaping of the gig economy, says Harry Campbell of the Rideshare guy blogged. We don't know exactly what would happen if drivers will become employees. But I think it's a safe bet that there would be less drivers. There would be more rigid scheduling with the success of Prop 22. That won't happen. The gig will stay. The gig economy in California, the mostly part time drivers who like the flexibility to work here and there for whichever app they choose, will continue to be able to do so, with some added benefits, and the drivers who seek the security of full time work will likely continue to be disappointed, he says. That's troubling to Rebecca, Given a professor of labor studies at Rutgers University. This bowel initiative will embolden employers and all kinds of sectors to say maybe we can do the same thing with wait staff in restaurants or supermarket cashiers. She worries employers have learned a new way to circumvent labor laws They don't want to comply with. But Seth Orenburg, a law professor at Duke ain university says the passage of proposition 22 is going to encourage new startups to pursue get worker models and technologies because it just got less risky to do it by creating essentially a third class of worker prop. 22 could also pressure other states and the federal government to change labor laws. Menu business professor Arun sooner, Rajan says Thie California law provides a blueprint to revamp them. We now have a framework to fun benefits, not just for full time employees. But for people who have other worker engines, freelancers for independent workers, and he says that will become increasingly important as the nature of work access to the safety. Net and jobs continue to be challenged by the pandemic. I'm Megan McCarty Carino for Marketplace in Florida, which President Trump One Amendment to on the ballot, their set the state's minimum wage at $15 an hour past with a little bit more than 60% of the vote. This one is interesting to note because Republican politicians don't usually support raising the minimum wage federally or at the state level, but his marketplaces into ULA reports when the issue is on the ballot. Voters tend to think otherwise. Currently, Florida's minimum wage is $8.56 an hour. This measure will nearly double that by 2026 Ryan Feldman runs a coffee roasting business in southwest Florida, where he employs 14 hourly workers. He voted in favor of the increase, but says it could eventually have direct consequences on his business. So down there down the pipeline or either need a re jiggle our budget or we'll have to kind of keep the payroll costs mine and potentially were what one or two people go. That's exactly what opponents of amendment to argued in Florida that a wage raise would hurt small businesses, particularly those in the tourism industry, which is already struggling from the impacts of covert 19. Alexis Davis at the Florida Policy Institute, says this is just about getting more money into Workerspockets. Businesses in the state have made billions on the tourism and service sector for decades long before this pin down, I can. It's high time that they shared prosperity but the hardworking, flirty and said made that happen. Florida is the eighth state that has approved a $15 minimum wage. David Cooper of the Economic Policy Institute says it's states that are passing these measures because lawmakers in DC Haven't the House passed a similar bill last year, but it didn't go anywhere in the Senate in the absence of federal legislation. It's good that states are taking this up, but I think. Unfortunately, there are going to be many states that are probably not going to take up this issue unless they're required to either by voters or by the federal government. The federal minimum wage is just $7.25 an hour. Measure in Florida will increase wages for about 2.5 million people, about one in four workers in the state. I'm a dealer for marketplace..

As for the forecast for today, it looks like it's going to be partly cloudy. Haze and smoke will continue through tonight. Temperatures will be around 60 degrees tonight. This is marketplace. I'm Kai Rizal. Sarah Cliff is an investigative reporter from The New York Times does mostly health policy stuff. She was also a mom who's toddlers. Daycare had a Corona virus outbreak. So, she said about trying to find a place to get him tested. And they're in a Twitter thread and a story in the newspaper were born Sara Cliff, Thanks to come back on the program. Thanks for having me So we should say First of all, your son is fine. But this whole episode for you set in motion a chain of reporting events that led you to some interesting conclusions about first of all. Kids and testing in this economy layout, which found yeah, it really surprised me. When I was trying to get my son tested how hard it was to find a testing site that would see a toddler. And I'm in the lucky position. When I find something weird about the health care system, I can find ideas, exploring the answer to how things ended up that way, And what I learned is that we really have a dearth of pediatric cranberries testing in the United States. You know a lot of these testing sites. Independently for different reasons because they didn't have specialty in pediatrics because of patient privacy concerns decided not to test Children. But that kind of leaves us in a situation where schools are reopening, and it can actually pretty hard. For kids to get tested for Corona virus. And the catch, of course, is that the young kids are the ones who need the most care. Right. And people have full time jobs. And you know, howto navigate the American healthcare system. Probably better than most. And yet it was still challenging for you. Right. Eye's ended up spending, you know, half a day, trying to figure out where I could get my son tested, and that's a half day when my daycare was closed because there'd been coronavirus that my day care. And I think one of the other things you're seeing is a number of child care facilities and schools. They have set up policies where if a child is symptomatic, you know, then that could be a runny nose or cough. They can't come back until they have a negative carnivorous tested and that could put parents in a really Catch 22 situation where you need the negative test to get your kid back to child care. That's another burden on working parents who have already found themselves pretty burden throughout this whole pandemic. Yeah. We back out for a second and sort of take a bigger picture of you. And I want to talk about a story you had on in the paper today about people getting stuck with testing bills for what they thought was a freak over test. And yet these things run conceivably in the in the many hundreds or thousands of dollars, and people are sort of without recourse. Tell me about that. Yes. So this is something I've been looking into over the past month or so You know what I found examining a number of patient bills is that Ah lot of patients are being charged for these things. And a lot of it just comes down to Complexity of our health care system, where a provider might not code the visit the right way. And the insurance company doesn't realize it's a Corona virus test, or AH provider techs on a few extra tests that Patient didn't even realize is being ordered. So we have this really complex medical system that that is set up to bill patients, But it is not set up to make one service. You know, completely free of charge and patients across the country. They're finding the loopholes and the shortfalls in these rules that are meant to protect them. Okay. But here's the policy question that I'm gonna ask you to bring your experience to bear on here. We have a public health crisis in this country. And yet what we're seeing through reporting like yours and others. Is that the lack of a uniform system or a uniform policy is actually making the health crisis in this specific instance worse isn't fair. Oh, I think that's totally very We don't have a national health service in the United States like Canada does, or, like Britain does where they can, You know, make decisions from the top down. We have Testing sites across the country that decide what age kids they're goingto test and we have insurance companies who decide Okay, here's how we're going to figure out how to cover the krone. Various tests and it just creates this climate where testing can both be difficult to access in the case of kids, and it could be quite expensive and really the case of anybody. Sir Cliff at the New York Times. She's an investigative reporter. There does a whole lot of healthcare on comes on this program. Every known Sara. Thanks a lot.

"FEMA for federal disaster assistance. Time now is 5 46. This is marketplace. I'm Kai Rizal. We did a story a couple of years ago about the New York City transit system and its general state of disrepair and how on any given day something like 10% of this country's gross domestic product. Use it to get to and from work every day. Now, with ridership way down because of the pandemic, its general state of disrepair and related budget problems are all the worse. So the Metropolitan Transit Authority is looking for a $12 billion federal bailout with it, says major and immediate service cuts hanging in the balance. And that is market places. Kristen Schwab reports would be bad news indeed, for the people who still depend on mass transit. Usually New York City's subway system is all hustle and bustle. People running two trains yelling Hold the door today. It sounds like this. Without the nine to fivers, it can feel eerily empty ridership has plummeted during the pandemic down to a quarter of what it used to be. Still, that's more than a million people on the train every day. And those folks are Essential workers. By and large Danny Pearlstein is with the Riders Alliance, a Transit Riders advocacy group, he says ridership has actually gone up in burrows outside of Manhattan for people like grocery store clerks and health care workers live. Empty as proposed service cuts would make those people wait longer for trains. They have long punishing commutes. Already, the idea of making their commutes much longer is devastating. Cutting service could also increase their chances of catching the virus because fewer trains and buses means Mohr overcrowding last social distancing. And all of this changes what the subway represents a sort of urban equalizer because in the before times, stockbrokers and teachers and line cooks, all crammed into the same space for 2 75 a ride Sarah Kaufman at New York University's Rudin Center.

"I'm Kai Rizal. We would be remiss if we didn't did not mention on the program today. A big speech coming tomorrow from Fed Chair J. Powell. The title. Monetary Policy Framework Review. Is. I think we can all agree a tad dry What It's going to mean in real life, though, says economist him doing at the University of Oregon. And dry it all My expectation is the Fed's going to basically loosen up how they've been thinking about their 2% inflation target. Specifically, the Fed will actually try to overshoot there 2% target a little bit to make up for periods of undershooting, the 2% target. And that's a big deal because central bankers today are still really, really leery of inflation, flashing back as they do to the 19 seventies, and Paul Volker and a prime rate of 21, a half percent But what is this speech going to mean? For you and me where you're going to notice? A difference is maybe over the longer run like in this recovery, The federal probably won't raise interest rates as early as it did in the previous recovery. So maybe as a result of that the recovery is a little bit faster. And that would mean jobs that that broom or quickly that wages that grew more quickly and then maybe inflation was a little bit higher. And as so often happens with the Fed pal, merely talking about higher inflation could just nudge the economy all by itself, even the expectation that policy will be easier for longer. I could actually induced some of us to take economic activity now because it improves our confidence about the future. Tim doing at the University of Oregon there with the setup for Jay Paul's big speech tomorrow on inflation, it's all virtual. By the way, the Fed conference tomorrow You can watch pal speech.

Kind of like what competitors CBS did after it, but at insurance back in 2018 Marketplaces Eric Harris is on the drugstore chain beat today. Most Americans live within five miles of the Walgreens or CVS. The stores are hoping to use that to their advantage, says Jeffrey Gallic, a marketing professor at Carnegie Mellon. If these stores realized that putting a medical practice of some sort, instead of the typical merchandise they have will increase their sales per square foot. That's a win for them. That's because even though most of the profit at a Walgreen's or CBS comes from prescription drugs, most of the sales are all the things you walk by to get to the pharmacy. Mascara, a candy bar, razor blades shampoo. Those sales are down. Eric Gordon is a business professor at the University of Michigan.
