The number of U.S. workers filing unemployment claims rose again this week, data released by the Labor Department shows 230,000 initial jobless claims for the week ending January 8th, the tally was up from last week's 207,000 claims.

"I want to reduce Selena zito's most recent column in the New York Post, one paragraph. Since last year in Pennsylvania, data from the U.S. Labor Department shows the price of gas has gone up a whopping 58% utility 25% bacon 21% that should be illegal. Chicken 9% and eggs coffee apples, flour and milk around 6 to 8%. All of these items are just basic necessities. There's bacon, and then there's everything else, so this is a great column. Tell us about it. Well, you know, we've been talking about the great resignation, right? We've been talking about the people who haven't been going to work. What about the people that have? And these are the working pooler who can not, who are struggling to be able to support their families. Why are they struggling because the inflation has just devastated them. They are unable to meet their basic needs because of these costs. And they're sort of invisible to everyone. They're doing all the right things. These are the people that is in manufacturing and the service industry that healthcare industry that we see every day that make our lives better and give us everything that we need or that we think that we need. However, they are suffering the most during this during this inflation. And that was what the stories about. I went to a food bank that doesn't require people to meet the needs of the federal guidelines. Because again, these are the people that are hurt the most. They're working, but they can't pay their rent. They can't pay their mortgage. They can't get basic food. They can't pay for their gas because inflation has just rocked their budget.

Wholesale Prices Measure Rose 9.6% in November

"Product. Story in The Wall Street Journal which I'll come back to later. Millennials are super chasing the housing market. Why? They know that this 30 year money at 3%. Some will get a little below three, some will be above three is great. It's not going to last because they had lead story today. The lead story everywhere is that producer product index in the United States went through the rough in November. It did. It went up to 9%. The U.S. producer prices climbed sharply in November. Prices that suppliers are charging businesses and other customers leaped, not a word you want when you're talking about inflation. Left in November. The Labor Department said Tuesday that its producer price index rose 9.6% in November. The most since records began in 2010. Now, I don't know why the price index is not what you're paying at the store. It's what the people who put things in the stores are paying to the people who supply them. So the people buying everything that deliver you a product hit got hit by a 9.6% year over year monthly increase. Okay, you do the math. If it was, if it was 10%, that would mean, oh my goodness. It's going to be 12% next year, producer price inflation. That means next year, it's going to be 15% for you. And I've been asking you all week because Joe Manchin has to hold strong. He has to say no to build back better because it's a killer. Next year we're going to worry about how to kill inflation. And by the way, the fed is meeting today, and they're going to crush interest rate. Maybe rate it a half point. The prime and stocks will tumble in gold will go up because inflation is but do you feel this producer? You people who are buying things so you can resell the final product.

Amid all this insane. A market volatility tomorrow, they're going to add to it with the jobs report. That's right. Well, obviously, the stock market has been a dicey proposition of late. I would argue that we think about volatility more often when stocks are moving lower, but not so much when they're moving higher, and this is really the flip side of the long advance. So we've seen whether you want data back to the general election in twenty sixteen or essentially going back over the broader course of a decade. And so obviously, we're seeing a correction or bear market. So keep the. Seatbelts fastened. Whether we're talking about the stock market the economy or any number of other things, we should say excluding today's apple news. It still has been pretty crazy. The jobs report that's coming out. Tomorrow is an economic report that does sometimes move the market quite a bit one direction or the other. What are we expecting? Well, absolutely. And I just add we also had some downbeat news from the manufacturing sector indicated one of the sharper downturns we've seen really for many years, and it's not a contraction. But it shows a slowing pace of growth. Investors are getting a number of flashing yellow lights. I think the jobs report for the month of December from the US Labor Department should serve as a bit of a counterweight to some of this negativity because the job market has really been performing. Well, we do expect a level of jobs creation to continue to be fairly impressive as well. We think that the unemployment rate could go a little lower from here over the next few months, and we'll just have to see. Where develops and in the year ahead. But you know, we think about twenty eighteen in the sense of growth for the US essentially notch the three percent level may fall slightly short of that. When all the data comes in. We'll see and we do have higher interest rates rising debt and deficits in the US and their prices to be paid for all that as well. Well, this gets really deep because most of us are not a communists, but as far as December goes this last question as far as December goes there's a lot of people that get jobs for the holidays is that factored in holiday employment. Yeah. One of the things that the Labor Department does as it sort of manages this data and prepares to release it to the public is essentially smooth it out for month-to-month volatility. But obviously retail employment sort of absolute basis will be, you know, calming down a little bit in these next few months as the need for seasonal workers. You know falls?

"So women are more interested in people by large and men are more interested in things by large and the difference is actually large it's one standard deviation. And so that means if you're. A man you would have to be more interested in people than eighty five percent of men to be as interested as fifty percent of women. And if you're a woman you'd have to be more interested in things than eighty five percent of women to be as interested as the fiftieth percentile male. So the difference is actually quite substantial, and it's certainly large enough to drive occupational choice differences. And which is explains a lot of configuration of people in the word. Absolutely. Well, and you know, we're approach approaching parody in terms of workplace overall workplace distribution women, but there's massive differences in occupational choice. Like, it's very interesting, for example, to go to the website of the US Labor Department and look at male and female dominated industries, and there's the top ten male. Dominated industries have basically zero women in them people. Rick players being one of the people there people zones according to. Meal poly, you find a lot of men in the people freeze up. Women. Are you ask a group of women and men would you rather spend the next three weeks taking part of machine and putting it together or helping a group of people were out their problems, and the pool of people who want to do it's just far more men than we've been there's more men and women dominated industries than there are women and men dominated industries at the extreme. So that's like nurse nursing. Yeah. Way more male, nurses. Layers. I've studied these male, nurses, and they already been gender activists are upset because they earn more than women and a professor of nursing at university of Pennsylvania tried to find out why. Found out they immediately find out. What's the best paying field sub-field? So they go into like nurse anesthesiology pays a lot more the minner there and disproportionate number. And they're willing to work in cr- insane hours. They're far more willing to moon. Pharrell phone with with gender differences. Is that men are more willing to move millionaire more willing? Hours. Yup. They're more willing to work outside. They're more willing to take on dangerous tasks, they're more likely to work in scalable industries. So like, you can't scale personal care. It's really it's very very difficult. They're much less likely to work part time, if they have small businesses they're much more likely to work fulltime in the small business rather than this than part time. I mean women have the reasons to work part time and Farrell also pointed out that if you work ten percent longer hours you make forty percent more money in non linear, non linear return on overtime. That's something. That's really useful. To know. You know? Interview career push it to an employer have somewhat also marks you out.
