"Talking about this yesterday. Had the unemployment situation varies state by straight across this economy and as it does, by the way, in normal times, variations that are just bigger now in virus times. Anyway. 26 States have now cut off at least some of the federal unemployment benefits that were in all those various relief packages benefits that were funded to run through the end of September. The states that have ended those benefits. 25 with Republican governors, one with a Democrat, say the checks are keeping people from going back to work. But as marketplaces Megan McCarthy carino reports Series of recent lawsuits argued that governors don't have the authority to not take the money. When the national unemployment insurance system was established during the new Deal era states were given control over their own program, says Chris O'Leary, with the Upjohn Institute for Employment Research. Essentially a federal state system was established. It wasn't forced on states. They can decide on everything from eligibility requirements to the level of benefits. But this week, a judge in Maryland ordered the state to hold off on cutting federal benefits. As a lawsuit moves forward. It's being led by attorney Alex Summerfield for the Unemployed Workers union. He points to language in the law that created Maryland's unemployment system. That the whole point of unemployment insurance is to combat involuntary unemployment, and that unemployment itself is a menace. They literally used the word menace to tomorrow's welfare and safety of the community. So the law directs the state to cooperate with the federal government. Cutting these benefits two months early does not fulfill the state's responsibility to combat unemployment. In Ohio, Mark Dan, the former state attorney general, filed a similar suit earlier this week, claiming that state law they're also directs the governor to maximize unemployment benefits. Our law in Ohio was passed in 1936 right at the height of the Great Depression. And so I think it was really important at that time for the Legislature to make sure that people wouldn't play politics. With unemployment benefit. And that's the case for many states, says Andrew Stettner, with the Century Foundation. All the laws are kind of similar because they were developed, and around the same time. The same guidance suits in Texas and Indiana are following a similar path, but they could face tough barriers. The Federal Cares Act, which created enhanced unemployment benefits specifically allowed states to opt out. Meghan McCarty, CARINO for Marketplace. Those green driving announcements have been coming fast and furious of late. So what I did there fast and furious. You got Tesla all the time. GM a couple of weeks ago forward with its electric F 1 50. This week, it was still antis, the merged car company formerly known as Fiat, Chrysler and Peugeot, with its plan to get in the electric vehicle, fast lane 35 a half billion dollars by 2025.

Kristen G. Check at the Center for Automotive Research says the global industry is clearly transitioning to a new electric future. The Stars are kind of aligned. So we've got the technology is getting better and more capable, especially batteries, getting cheaper and lasting longer. The Lantus aims to boost its TV sales to 70% of total sales in Europe, where there are strict emissions regulations and driving distances tend to be short. But in the U. S. There are some big hurdles in the way of silent is even hitting 40% in the next decade, and the same is true of GM, Ford and the others lack of vehicle charging infrastructure for starters. Says Garrett Nelson at CFR Research early there are about 43,000 charging stations in the U. S. 30% of those are in California. There's huge swaths of the country with very few charging stations. And even if EVs can eventually be driven and charged all across America, it's not clear Americans everywhere will want them, says Christian G Check. The big question, and all of this is our mask market consumers really there. If it's more expensive, it's harder to use and it doesn't fit your kids hockey equipment. There is no reason for that kind of a consumer to get into an electric vehicle. So marketing will be key, says Nick Shields, that investment research firm Third Bridge. There is some of that, like polar bears, and you're going to save the planet in some marketing material, But I think the more important thing is, you know. Hey, this is an electric.

Unemployment Benefits Coming to an End for Many

"Cutting off extra federal unemployment benefits, some as soon as next week. Marketplaces Meghan McCarty, Carino looks at the labor market yet to come. It's not just that extra $300 a week in federal unemployment payments, most of these states are ending. It's also benefits for gig workers, freelancers and the long term unemployed. Like Marcellus, Row in Dunwoody, Georgia, where federal benefits will end June 26. I will be receiving nothing. Unfortunately, I have no idea how I'm going to live. Day by day Row, lost his job in a public transportation agency last year and says he hasn't found work to match his previous pay of $16 an hour another. How is just not gonna put it? As economies reopen and the dangers of the virus recede. Michael strain at the American Enterprise Institute says the additional benefits are doing more harm than good. I see a labor market where employers clearly want to hire workers, but there are not enough workers there to be hired. He says Scaling back benefits could incentivize more people to return to work. But Andrew Stettner at the Century Foundation says it's not so simple. We want to believe that we can just turn the lights back on, but that's not really how it works. Industries like tourism and entertainment have been slower to bounce back, and some people face health challenges or child care issues caused by the pandemic that prevent them from finding work. Those the ones on the federal programs, those people that have the greatest barriers to work. Rising vaccination rates might make it feel like we're done with Cove it But he says Covad isn't done with the economy. I'm making McCarty Carino for marketplace on Wall Street today.

Nationwide face mask and safety standards for workers still under consideration

"Requirements to prevent the spread of the virus in workplaces in this economy should be said here we are 54 days into the Bible administration. Which on day two directed Ocean issue. What are called emergency temporary standards Basically, Emergency safety rules specifically for this disease, and they're expected to come out in the next week or so. From the workplace. Culture desk marketplaces Meghan McCarty Carino has more ocean never issued binding safety rules for covert 19 under the previous administration. Instead, the agency just made recommendations to follow CDC guidelines. It were open to interpretation, says Debbie Berkowitz, with the National Employment Law Project. Words like Consider Protecting workers do this, If possible, Berkowitz says the risk of another surge is rising as the country reopens and OSHA doesn't have. The resource is to police every workplace. Oh, she is a very small agency. It would take OSHA 165 years to get into every workplace under its jurisdiction. One so it's not like it's going to be running around and inspecting. David Michaels, who headed OSHA during the Obama administration says a scent of binding national requirements will make it clear to employers what they need to do many, many more employers going to follow those basic precautions that we know we're successful. Things like employee training, improved ventilation and mask wearing, perhaps even requiring, and 95 style respirators in high risk work places. But some business groups are concerned about overly prescriptive requirements as employers struggle to make costly adjustments amid economic uncertainty. Edwin Iggy is with the National Retail Federation. Retailers. We've implemented mask mandates. We've done social distance, saying we've installed Plexi Glass. We've installed filtration systems. We've increased the frequency of cleanings. We've done all these things, he says. Locking in one size fits all requirements beyond that would be too rigid, especially with vaccinations, ramping up and infections falling. National Retail Federation has already sued California OSHA over its standards, and it's likely a national standard would also end up in court. I'm Meghan McCarty, carino for Marketplace. Come on.

How long will it take to get vaccines to people a while, I guess. Yeah, it will be awhile. If approved.

"Meghan McCarty Carino has the story. The decades old window. A C in my living room has been a godsend while working from home this summer, but it sounds sort of like a jet engine. It definitely is an energy star certified, so I try to tough it out with fans until at least lunchtime, same for Anna Chen, who works from home for Ella's Transit agency. She sometimes answers emails lying on her cool tile floor and reminisces about her frozen office. You have to keep it a little little cardio or something. That is one of the things I think I really do. Miss Tyler Knight, a product manager for an HLA entertainment company, is working in a studio attached to his garage, which he says he's up to about 85 by mid morning. He turns on his portable A see only when he gets really desperate. There's that moment late in the afternoon where you're already sort of dragging a little bit, and the heat just doesn't help. An analysis by Reardon Frost at Harvard found that electricity use has decreased overall during the pandemic, but residential energy use is up, so basically there has been a transfer of burden from the commercial and industrial sectors to residential sector. Yeah, that was an air conditioner. You heard in the background and workers are for the most part paying for that cool air. Most states actually do not have reimbursement requirements with respect to what employers have to pay. Two employees who work from home. Jeffrey Roussel is an employment law attorney in New York. He says. Some states like California and Illinois have required employers to pay for things like cell phone bills are Internet service. He thinks the current situation could force a change. We are going to see sort of a closer look to see whether there should be consideration off air conditioning and other electricity usage from working from home scenarios because as hard as it may be to imagine now from a steamy home office A cold winter and it's heating bills are just around the corner. I'm making McCarty Carino for marketplace. I don't have to tell you this holiday weekend is typically a big one for travel. But if your among the more than half of Americans who canceled their Labor Day plans this year, according to a survey from Nerdwallet Or even if you didn't make plans to begin with, you're not the only one who might be feeling disappointed. Thie American Hotel and Lodging Association is out with a new report showing just how badly the pandemic continues to depress demand For in 10 hotel employees are still not working. Two thirds of hotels remain less than half full. Marketplaces. Andy Euler has more on what the industry is up against Kevin King lives with his wife and three Children outside of Buffalo, New York, He says they were hoping to get out of town for the holiday before his oldest starts kindergarten on Wednesday. We liked the hotel prices embraces looked good. But we just couldn't pull the trigger. You don't feel comfortable hotel. He knows that hotel's air cleaning Maurin trying to limit the contact between guests and employees. But always and elevators are the things that scared of most Not sure how you socially distance it's coming on the hallway. Kings has a lot of the fun for his kids is hanging out in the lobby and running through the hallways. Michal Noll, teachers economics at Texas Tech University, says that aspect of staying at a hotel just isn't appealing in the context of covert 19. All hotels lost, but the hotels that have done the least worst are those basic drive in drive out get out of here Hotels. There's also a lot less business travel these days, so hotels aren't getting that revenue either. Chip. Rogers is CEO of the American Hotel and Lodging Association. He says hotel workers are paying the price. It's those large urban centers with so many employees that are being hit the worst and with their occupancy levels you know, down in the thirties and revenue drops of 70% of that's why you're seeing such massive job loss, he says. One positive If there is one right now for the hotel industry is that if many people can work from anywhere, that means they can also work from hotels. That's the idea behind the new hotel booking platform hotels by day. Yannis Moti is that company's CEO. We now have over 40 million new users that potentially could be using hotel rooms for the day, he says. The idea is to monetize every part of the hotel. So users Khun Book, a meeting room, a gym pass or even a spot at the pool for a day. I made the Euler for marketplace. On Wall Street today, a day of rest after Friday's big slide. We'll have details on the global markets when we do the numbers. In the ongoing conversation about racism in our country. Wall Street is among the industry's facing pressure to diversify its ranks, especially in leadership positions at Goldman Sachs, Citigroup and Morgan Stanley to name a few reports say less than 3% of executives and senior managers are black. But what about the government officials who regulate those companies Right now Only one of the federal government's politically appointed financial regulators is black. Rodney Hood is head of the National Credit Union Administration. And a new report from Georgetown University outlines how white men have dominated financial regulation for generations. Marketplaces Nancy Marshall Ginza reports. Since the new deal on Ly 10 of 327. Top financial regulators appointed by the president and confirmed by the Senate were black thes regulators oversee Wall Street at the Fed, The FBI See Securities and Exchange Commission. Georgetown University law professor Chris Brummer looked at diversity at seven federal agencies. Our methodology was just designed to identify to paraphrase the musical Hamilton, who's in the room when it happens and who's not in the room. About 3% of all regulators of all financial regulators have been black and that headline number was really jarring. But these numbers aren't surprising for Paul. For now, he was a Senate staffer in the 19 nineties. He's been in the rooms where things happened, but he says, as a black man, he was the exception in those rooms. I know that there are not met many people that look like me in them. Senators tend to support people for top financial regulator jobs, whom they know like Senate staffers. There are just fewer black and brown people who have those long standing relationships with senators because few black and brown people have had top jobs in the Senate. Colonel says without diverse voices around the table. Those at the table can hurt communities there trying to help attorney pedal. Walker was chief counsel to a commissioner on the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. She grew up in the 19 eighties in Jamaica, Queens, Diverse horror neighborhood on the outskirts of New York City. Walker says that experience influenced her perspective. Because she realized that too much market risk could lead to a crisis with spikes and unemployment. If we don't properly oversee the market, if there's too much risk in one area is not enough collateral another area. Those things can create the crisis of the future. And when those jobs were lost, the people who are most vulnerable, really feel it. Walker says she was very aware of how the decisions financial regulators made would ultimately affect individuals who may never get a seat at the table. I'm Nancy Marshall denser for marketplace..

"Of three four years now in the middle of a historically tight labor market which means companies and trade associations and unions are looking everywhere they can for people to fill critical skilled jobs here's a source that doesn't get a whole lot of attention in this economy apprenticeships they're big in places like Germany and Australia but the number of people doing apprenticeships in the United States has been climbing steadily the past couple years in two thousand eighteen the labor department says more than a half a million people were getting skills while pulling down a salary at same time marketplace Meghan McCarty Carino has more on that one when stand best was finishing high school in the eighties the path to a successful future was clear everyone from his parents to high school guidance counselor were in agreement go to college so that's what he did I went to Virginia Tech for about a year and a half and I left before they could throw me out I was responsible for paying for my own way and he wasn't getting much out of it then his brother encouraged him to apply for an apprenticeship at the Newport news shipyard where workers build aircraft carriers and submarines for the military it's very pragmatic and very hands on and practical with what the student is doing down on the waterfront best trained as an electrician went on to become a nuclear reactor test engineer and eventually returned to the apprentice school to train future shipbuilders to tell somebody that is going to be a blue collar worker that in the future you could end up with a six figure job is not what they're normally hearing and and high schools apprenticeships are mostly concentrated in the skilled trades unlike internships they typically provide several years of on the job training apprentices earn a full salary and usually land a permanent job professor Joseph fuller at Harvard Business School says expanding apprenticeships in the U. S. will take a change of thinking we have been preoccupied with a college for all one seven and that is not bearing the fruit that we hoped he says too many young people are finishing college with huge debt loads and working in jobs that don't or shouldn't require a college degree he estimates there are currently three million job openings in the US where apprenticeships would make more sense including many in banking health care and technology I don't even know that there was a possibility for me to work in this field into athletics an internship program and accepted Disney's brag instead her apprenticeship at Accenture in Chicago and now works as a software tester for the consulting firm I didn't have to go in today and I don't have to spend so much time in school because I found that I would have stayed in a traditional program I was actually on the job getting real life skills in real life experiences equine and heads the non profit institute for workplace skills and innovation and did his own apprenticeship when he lived in Australia he says such programs are just helpful for job seekers they can help employers address one of the biggest challenges in the labor market today employers can't find the people with the skills I need yet there's a lot of educational institutions that have been churning out people say these these live a market mismatch to help close that skills gap the trump administration is expected to finalize regulations soon they will create a new kind of apprenticeship run by businesses schools unions and other groups instead of just the federal government hi Meghan McCarty Carino for market place what's up with Shelley.
