Fresh update on "labor" discussed on The Community Safety Podcast

"To say again apologies if people think. I'm just criticizing the police book. Another problem we've got here. Is police control the narrative and on social media press releases. The police are constantly putting out stories of dole's being smashed in a gangs. Bain arrested drugs being seized but without the context that is not improving things so the public is seeing these images over and over again. That being reminded that with something to be scared of but they're also being reassured that something's being done about it so again it's time to be honest because if we're honest the public will very quickly get behind heroin. Prescribing and our crime will drop. Less people will die. Organized crime will lose money and power. How close do you think you get in. They'll to foreseen some change. Where do you think at will change is happening. And and actually i can praise the police here because it is police leaders in the uk not around the world in the uk. It's police leaders which are leading this debate. And in your city of birmingham for example. David jameson split crime. Commissioner did a fantastic job of getting things moving in the west and they all moving on. Soon i understand will be. Heroin assisted treatment working in in your region. Again another brilliant. Please crime crime commissioner. In cleveland mr company he also brought in heroin assisted treatment. And the evidence is there in middlesbrough crime plummeted. People have survived again. All of the same kind of evidence of jones has been working on it in wales. I hope they're going to manage to get it in a while so it's actually police. Which leading reforms in spite of politics spines of central politics. Rather than because of it. You know we do have good allies as well. We've got the conservative politics policy reform group.

What Is the Value of a College Degree?

"Hi brian. Thanks for coming on the newsworthy fisher. I appreciate it. So i let me just ask. What's your take on the value of a college degree in today's world. Shoot we wanna value in having that college degree but when it comes to employment and job opportunities in some ways it's becoming less valuable because of how competitive the labor market is become as you look up and down the labor market from not just hourly employees retail employees but salaried up and down the continuum what companies are finding is that there's not enough people for all of the jobs that they want to hire for so one. They're relaxing a lot of the historical constraints that they've had on the jobs that they're hiring for and that includes things like previous experience educational certifications and different degrees. That people have had so a lot of companies in particular across the last two or three years have been relaxing many of those constraints. The other thing that's going on is that for people that might have some of those degrees or experiences or whatever it may be. They're also able to ask for more money in the labor market so the other reason why companies are expanding their horizon of who to hire. Is that for people without college degrees. They're able to find that job and they're willing to extend an offer them. But perhaps at a slightly lower compensation level than people who do have a college degree

"Record. Numbers of women are getting jobs as truckers demand for new drivers and higher pay are big factors. Here's stephen basan with the gulf states. Newsroom it's worth remembering that. Trucking is a pretty rough job for long hauls. It means sleeping in a caught behind the front seats. All those hours of sitting behind the wheel can lead the blood clots.

They'll work forty hours and bring home four hundred dollars. I could go out here in a week and make a thousand dollars a quick thousand dollars doing something that i like to do. That's good a lot of the retail and restaurant. Jobs typically held by women were much more likely to vanish during the pandemic. Some trucking jobs also disappeared early last year. When everyone went on lockdown but demand for drivers started skyrocketing soon after as online shopping surged. That's led to higher pay which is attracted a lot more people including women. The number of female truck drivers has jumped almost double digits in the last year. According to the us labor department's

The Not so Digital Workforce

"You may think of the digital workforce as zoom meetings and shed google docs but this trend encompasses a wide range of industries and types of work. This labor refers to a really wide suite of different types of work quite often The moment is being used to refer to digital knowledge. Work so any works. That's that can be undertaken through computers. I virtually remotely roth than having to be in a specific geographical location. That's david vissel. David is a human geography at the university of melbourne and he researches the changing relationship between people and place. There's a wide spectrum of other types of works that could equally be referred to as digital works so the economy in in cities. So things like uber and delivery and all of those new types of services that we're seeing springing up in in our cities that are absolutely reliance on networks of connected mobile phones and algorithms that drive that drive both the workers and consumers so even sectors threats we traditionally associate with being very different and very not digital say things like mining for example are increasingly using. Ai and different types of autonomous developments. So yes a labor certainly a massive consideration through across a lot of different sectors of the moment and it's very variable bull people participating in the digital workforce than ever before this rapid change is something. That's come out of necessity with the emergence of the pandemic but as david explains this influx of flexible and digital workers has an impact on the way how cities function well hit potentially involves all of us in terms of the effects that it has so even if you don't work at all and no doubt you purchase things and you use different online services so even consumers are using dish labor.

"Turns out the maximum height for vehicles is a little over thirteen feet. That's four meters but the trucks. The military bought were taller than four meters too big so they can't use them. The moral of the story here measure twice cut once as in cut the check wants. It's the world and everything next up on the world and everything in it the monday money beat financial analyst and adviser. David johnson joins us now for our weekly conversation and commentary on markets and the economy. David good morning to you. Good morning naked to be with you. We'll david we received a couple of government economic indicators. Some reports for august and i'd like to get your read on those and one of them was the consumer price index. Of course. That's a regular report from the labor department. You often hear referred to in media. Reports as inflation financial journalists will frequently interchange the term inflation and cpi consumer price index. That of course can be misleading. If you're not careful we'll get to that in just a minute. But i'd like to begin with consumer spending that fraction of spending that happened in the nation's retailers so retail sales according to the department of commerce august retail sales bounced back month-on-month over july and it registered a seven tenths of a percentage point increase. Now i think a lot of people will hear the headline or hear the lead sentence and take the meaning of the report from that. And i'd like to read a a typical mainstream media econ story on that retail number the us economy The story says is proving resilient in the face of the delta variant americans briskly increased spending at retailers last month and then it goes on from there so it seems like a suggestion of 'cause That is retail sales growth and effect economic resilience as funny. I absolutely agree that the economy showed resilience through the delta strain. And i don't think that the retail number is proof of that at all so it's one of those cases where i think. They're looking for evidence of a conclusion and they have the conclusion right and then the evidence is disconnected. I wanna keep saying this though to the world listeners. America's economic strength does not come from its ability to spend money it's a fallacy but it is sort of the major economic fallacy of the last hundred years on the government side. We believe we can fix economic problems by government spending more money but on the household side we believe economic strength comes from our ability to go buy things and my contention is that economic strength is always and forever for since the garden of eden all the way to twenty twenty one silicon valley wall street k street hollywood economic strength is from production and so despite the philosophical bias i have towards production not consumption which is both spiritual and economic for me. The retail number in america is absurd. There is no question that americans are very happy to spend money as long as they can and so whenever we have periods where consumption drops the financial crisis that one month of the covert lockdown. Things like that. It's always because of credit. It's not because demand down. There's less demand for food and beverage and vacations and toys and cars and onyx. It's just simply the the ability to spend more went away when the housing crisis kept people from being able to refinance out of their homes when credit cards get maxed when banks titan. And so i think that the retail number was a surprise to people because they expect auto sales to drop so much which they did that it would take the overall retail down month over month but second of all the total retail number actually went higher by point seven percent even with autos dropping because people spent so much more money in malls restaurants etcetera. I spent a lot of time in southern california. It's been a lot of time in manhattan. I'm airplanes. I'm out and about. I didn't see one iota of indication this summer that people were going. Oh my gosh delta strain. I'm not gonna go spend money so the reality is that that narrative didn't make sense and then the data just sorta smacked the narrative around this week a little bit. Well david let's jump into that inflation question. I mentioned a moment ago. The consumer price index for august ticked up but it did so at a slower pace month-on-month from july and june and again we hear these reports and we hear this is a sign one way or the other that inflation is easing or rising But the sense that it's easing kind of goes against a political narrative we hear republicans Frequently decrying inflation and you do see pockets of rising prices but you make a distinction about the types of inflation and public policy choices. That drive inflation. Could you address that. Let me i own addressed the issue about the politicians that are going to continue making. Hey of it. I happen to think they're doing something and saying something that's politically wise and advantageous but happened to think they're getting it wrong but i don't think they know they're getting it wrong so i'm not down on them. But certainly to the extent prices are elevated and did it taps into an overall theme of attacking the confidence to the current administration. I think that there's a lot of political wisdom in trying to hit the point home. But if one is talking in the world. I'm in which is about the actual soundness of the economic claim and projection. I just think there's no question you have rising prices. In some areas for reasons that are not inflationary and this isn't as much debate as people say it is because we continue have the only data points. We need to answer the question as money. Supply went up last year significantly. At i still now projected about six percent money supply growth loan demand is still down fifteen percent and so there just isn't any proof of monetary inflation but prices can go higher for other reasons than that when there's a supply shortage like we saw earlier in the year with lumber number skyrocketed up. It's now dropped over seventy percent. And i do think the better word to use. This month was disinflationary. Deflationary prices still rose on the month but they rose at a much lower rate than they had been and so is that rate of inflation is dropping what we call disinflation. it will eventually change the political narrative. But in the meantime i understand why whatever side of the fence would want to exploit the political data points. And i do believe that there are parts of policy creating pricing challenges and the greatest example continues to be in housing. There's just simply no excuse for rates being so low for the fed buying so many mortgage bonds stimulating more borrowing activity and then combine that with more state and local supply problems in housing environmental regulations. Zoning issues that keep more housing stock from getting built which vita ministration is attempting to remedy some of that. I don't think they're remedies are going to go anywhere. They don't have the authority in federal level to do much here. It's a state and local problem but housing is an area. Where i think you have inflationary problems. I just don't think it's monetary inflation and so there's a lot of lanes to cover and simplistic to sentence kind of that. A lot of people want right now. Inflation bad biden bad. This those.

A lot of businesses started reopening as states lifted restrictions and companies mainly in leisure and hospitality so think restaurants airports really needed to hire workers.

Understanding Total Compensation for New Job Opportunities

"You're working from home do you know. Is the company you work for your boss spying on you. Wait till you hear how much that's going on. So i've been talking to people who've been using the advantage of the labor shortage to bid up their pay going usually to a new place to work. But there's an aspect of this. This come up twice recently in my conversations with people that i want to discuss with you and that is the pay alone is not the only thing you should be looking at when you're looking at new job opportunities that the marketplace is offering you right now so what else matters all right so you worry about what. The monthly paycheck is what the pay is per week or per hour. Whatever and that's what most of us tend to focus on because we're thinking about our bills but let's work even medium-term what other things matter so a hidden way that you get compensation is with the health benefits. You're offered by place if you're working one place this paying you less per hour but they offer you. Employer paid health coverage or overwhelmingly employer paid health coverage. That's worth a lot of money to you. If the next place you go doesn't offer health coverage or offers minimal subsidy. There's a lot of additional money you're having to lay out every month. What do they do about a retirement benefit do they offer a big match on a 401k. Do they offer good 401k plan. What's your promotion potential with that company. I mean i really want you to think about wider than just the paycheck.

September 13th, 1922: The Straw Hat Riot in New York City

"Day was september thirteenth nineteen twenty two in new york city. A group of teenage boys grab the straw hats of some factory. Workers stopped them flat on the sidewalk and then ran like mad later that evening. The boys did the same thing to some dockworkers but this time the hat wearers fought back. The ensuing brawl grew so large. It stopped traffic on the manhattan bridge and police had to be called in to break it up the following day. The new york times reported that quote scores of rowdies on the east side and and other parts of the city started smashing hats. Police reserves were called out straw hat. Bonfires were started and seven. Men were convicted of disorderly conduct in the men's night court. And here's the thing is a wild is all that sounds. The straw hat riot was just getting started by now though. You're probably wondering what's with all the hat smashing to answer that. We have to talk a little about men's fashion in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries at the time buildings didn't have air conditioning or central heating so menswear tended to follow a seasonal shift going from heavier fabrics in the fall and winter to lighter fabrics in the spring and summer. This changeover also applied the hats. Most men of the time wore hats every day typically felt once but they would switch to straw hats in the summer as a way to stay cool over time in unwritten rule. Emerged similar to the idea that you shouldn't wear white after labor day. In this case a man could only don his straw hat between may fifteenth and september fourteenth when the fifteenth rolled around it was time switch back to felt hats for another eight months. This became such an accepted norm that a tongue in cheek new york times article proclaimed that any man who wore a straw hat passed. The cutoff date was quote.

These firms started outsourcing their labor their manufacturing capabilities. I think their allegiance followed. And you know a lot of these these big corporations. They want the open borders. They want the cheap labor. But i've always said that you know. These open borders work both ways in the sense that they want cheap labor and and they want to send jobs out. They want to send our manufacturing capabilities outwards. And and i think it's you know you don't even have to kind of speculator or make guesses as to where their their allegiances and ideologies lie.

"Hello folks welcome to the L. R. I S. podcast series. My name is well Aitchison and this is going to be another one and our hopefully short series on the Labor and employment implications and the public safety workplace of covert nineteen. I have four things. I WanNa talk to talk to you about today. All four of them are sort of in the way of updates but there have been some significant developments so the first thing I want to talk about are the is the status of Kobe. Nineteen presumptive causation. Laws for workers comp purposes then want to talk about hazardous duty. Pay What we're seeing with regard to that third thing is. What's what's been the impact so far that we've seen of covid nineteen on the collective bargaining process. What sorts of deals are being? Cut Out there by public safety unions and the public safety employers with which they deal and then the fourth thing is going to be law enforcement specific development. We continue to have law enforcement officers around the country who are drawing a line in the sand and who are saying. I'm not going to enforce this emergency order of the governor. Whatever this might be It could be a people being required to wear masks or people being required to stay at home and I wanNA talk about in a little bit more detail this time what. The legal framework is of that issue. Okay so let's talk first about presumptive causation. Laws it's been a month since I've spoken to you about these and we've seen some changes but unfortunately not a lot and It's safe to say that right now the majority of states in this country do not have presumptive causation rules let's reset what's the presumptive causation. Rule it's a rule of workers compensation law that if you encounter a certain condition. He's almost all was diseases That it is presumed that that disease was caused by the job. It's only a presumption. The employer can overcome the presumption by proving that the disease or the condition love caused by off the job but presumptive causations really give employees a leg up With respect to establishing worker's compensation claims And when I say a leg up when you have a presumptive causation law. It's almost impossible for an employer to prove that the condition was not caused by the job so for example there are cases. I see them every month and we only put a few of them in our newsletter. I only rarely talk about them on the PODCASTS. The first Thursday podcast but there are cases out there. All the time involving firefighters in in firefighters have much richer set a presumptive cassation laws around the country so most of these cases are firefighter cases. So you see these cases. We have a firefighter who's had a heart attack. And His filed a workers. Compensation claim and the employer brings evidence into the workers compensation hearing where the employers well. Yeah I did have a heart attack but on the other hand he was a two pack. A day smoker. For thirty years he also had a high level of cholesterol and He was basically a heart attack waiting to happen. Didn't exercise was morbidly obese. You know whatever. The Constellation factors might day. And you'll see the workers compensation agencies saying to the employer. Yeah but you didn't prove that it wasn't caused by the job sometimes. Employers can prevail in those types of cases but not often and the result is that presumptive causation. Laws are expensive. You hear me talk in a couple of minutes about what's going on in California. The estimate is the covid nineteen presumption in California is going to cost. The state of billion dollars cost employers in the state. A billion dollars so these things are expensive. Employers typically have resisted them and Employees. Of course want them and we're seeing that debate played out in state legislatures around the country. So where are the Kobe? Nineteen presumptive causation. Laws around the country. And I'm just GonNa go in alphabetical order. Here it's not gonna be too long less but I wanNA talk about how some of these presumptions came into existence. Because there's some not small amount of controversy about that. So let's start with Alaska down in Alabama by the way let's talk about an Alaskan in Alaska. Alaska was an early adopter here April tenth governor. Mike Dunleavy signed into law Something that is known a SENATE BILL TO FORTY ONE. And it contains a conclusive presumption that a first responder who contracts Kobe. Nineteen after an amish job exposure got the diseases a result of an on the job exposure notice. I stressed the phrase conclusive presumption a conclusive presumption cannot be rebutted. So that means in Alaska if you're first responder and WHO's the first responder? Firefighter paramedic peace officer healthcare provider. If you are a first responder and you get cova. Nineteen on the job. All you have to do is prove that you had an on the job exposure to the disease and boom that is a workers compensation covered condition. That's the strongest presumption that is out there Really in the country is the one that's in place in Alaska right now Arizona. There's no presumptive causation in Arizona on May fourteenth so just a about a week ago or so Something known as the Industrial Commission in Arizona. that's part of the workers. Compensation System there issued what? It called an advisory statement. What was the advisory statement employers and? I'm quoting may not categorically deny covid nineteen claims and of quote really. That's the best you can do if you're going to be talking about presumptive causation. You come up with a rule that employers may not categorically deny Kobe nineteen clients. Well that's not GonNa get employees very far at all and my understanding is that the push for presumptive causation continues in Arizona Arkansas on April fourteenth. The governor nothing was passed in the legislature in In Arkansas the governor issued an order allowing first responders and healthcare workers to be eligible for workers comp now listen carefully but only if they can demonstrate a causal connection between their diagnosis and exposure to covid nineteen as a result of their employment. That's no presumptive causation. At all right. it requires the employee to show that the exposure caused the condition and just like a presumptive causation. Law is very difficult for an employer to overcome employee's pretty much can never show that exposure to a disease caused their condition. Why is that? Because there's so many other places you can be exposed to the same disease right so if if I were a first responder in Arkansas side look at Governor Acer Hutchison and say Jeez. Thanks a lot guy. You did absolutely nothing for US okay. What about California California? We have another executive order from a governor in this case is Governor Gavin newsom and he issued a an executive order that creates a presumption that covid nineteen incurred by frontline. Workers is caused by the job. Now this presumption is going to expire on July fifth. The California legislature has several bills the most prominent of which is known as Assembly Bill. Six sixty four appending that would make the The presumptive causation. Continue into the future. But I want to talk about the fact that this was done by executive order because in some places governors are getting tired of looking at legislatures just simply waiting around or debating or not meeting or doing or not doing whatever they're doing or not doing and they are issuing these sorts of executive orders. Are they legal? Maybe there hasn't been much of a challenge to them anywhere When we get to Illinois I'll talk about a very different type of challenge that was filed with respect to an executive order there but the sort of thing that governor newsom has done to issue this executive order. I have not seen that challenged in court. Now Governor Nuisance Executive Order. Far More expansive Than what went on for example in Alaska. It's more expansive in the sense that it applies to all frontline workers so not just first responders and medical personnel. But everybody. Who's out there. Who's basically bagging groceries or doing? Whatever it is they're doing to Keep the rest of us. from All sorts of different types of dire conditions all right Colorado Connecticut Delaware District of nothing is going on no presumptive causation in Florida on April one. The chief financial officer for the State of Florida issued a directive it only applies to state employees and the directive is optional. The state agencies can either choose to follow it or not follow it if they follow it it creates a presumptive causation. A the Florida League of cities which runs a worker's comp insurance trust that covers many cities and counties remember what? The state did only applies to state employees. The League of cities in Florida sent a letter to the state of Florida saying it would apply a presumptive causation rule for covid nineteen for the purposes of workers. Comp claims by first responders. But that's one insurance trust among many and the best of my knowledge. There's nothing going on in the Florida legislature by the way about a table of all this. I guess what I don't have it memorized. Got A table. And we're going to put the table Online on our website. So you'll be able to download it Georgia Hawaii Idaho has not seen anything. Then we get to Illinois in Illinois on April Thirteenth the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission announced an emergency amendment to its rules of evidence. These are the rules as to what's admissible and not admissible in a workers. Compensation hearing and this rule announced that if a first responder or frontline worker was diagnosed with covid nineteen during the state of emergency that it was presumed that the virus was caused by the job so effectively. What it did was to shift the burden of proof to employers to show off the job creation very quickly a group of employers Including the Eleanor Municipal League. So this includes public sector employers challenged the commission's decision. They obtained a temporary restraining order blocking the rules. And the commission has withdrawn the roles There's now a bill that's been introduced in the Illinois legislature about acid now no presumptive causation. Told you I tell you the legal theory that was used in Illinois by the Municipal League and it didn't have anything to do with the authority of the Workers Compensation Commission to announce this rule but rather the process by which it did allstate's have something called an administrative procedures act that require some to certain processes before they make rule changes and the court found here that the administrative procedures act was violated by the enactment of this emergency rule. Now could the state have defended that up the chain of the court system maybe the Municipal League Did what you would expect anybody who is trying to challenge something that is on a statewide basis to do and that is a cherry picked where filed a lawsuit it filed in an extremely conservative county in downstate Illinois reports. Were they got an extremely conservative judge. could they have a could the state? The Workers Compensation Commission have appeal at to the much more workers friendly Illinois Court of Appeals may be but they didn't and so now it's going to come down to what the legislature does Indiana Iowa. Nothing going on no presumptive causation. Kansas interesting story There were bills that were introduced in the Kansas. Legislature or at least being discussed not introduced In the Kansas legislature and then finally on April twentieth the Governor Laura. Kelly said you know what enough is enough? And She Directed the Kansas Department of Labor. Shays the executive for the Department of Labor To develop a regulation that would create a presumption that first responders and healthcare workers contracted Kobe. Nineteen on the job. If they were able to show that they were exposed to the condition. Kentucky we have another governor acting all on his own governor. Andy Bashir on April ninth. Another early adopter here is simply announced an emergency order that removal from work by a physician removal from work obey first responder for Covid nineteen was related to the job. Nothing in Louisiana. Nothing in Maine. Nothing in Maryland Massachusetts. There are bills pending in legislature and The Massachusetts Municipal League has weighed in opposing the legislation. And it's taking the position and I'm quoting. The solution is to require existing health plans to pay for all medical costs and to create fully paid covert nineteen hazard duty leave for all first responders preserving their regular earns sick-leave balances..
