SAN FRANCISCO - When Vanessa Bain quit her job working with special needs students at a public high school in Silicon Valley to become a shopper for online grocery delivery company Instacart, she was wary of tying herself to a tech start-up that relied on contractors to meet demand, with little worker protection. But Bain, then a 30-year-old mother, was quickly won over with meaningful work and a sense of respect. And her take-home pay rose roughly 65 percent compared to teaching and tutoring combined. At the end of a day working for Instacart, Bain had more energy, which made her a better mom. When a friend who drove for Lyft complained about pay cuts, Bain urged her to switch to Instacart. That changed just a few months later, after Instacart in 2016 began a pattern of experimenting with worker pay in ways that made earnings more precarious. That included using tips to supplement wages, a practice the company stopped in February after public outcry. "I understand that they … [Read more...] about Instacart’s biggest cheerleader is now leading a worker revolt
Story highlights Firstborns get better grades in school, according to a study The study's authors say parents might be easier on later-born children Empower children no matter if they're youngest, middle or oldest, one mom said (CNN)I am a middle child, and I don't think my older sister would be too upset to hear me take issue with the latest study to find that firstborn children do better in school than us kids who were born later. (Hint: I was the kid who loved school!) But science is science, and this study, a National Bureau of Economic Research working paper, follows several other studies that came to similar conclusions about the children who came first. In the latest one, the authors found that firstborns got better grades and concluded, based on their research, that it's because parents are stricter with the firstborns and get a bit more lax when it comes to enforcing TV rules, monitoring homework and even getting upset over bad grades for subsequent children. "You … [Read more...] about Study that says firstborns are smarter leads to debate among parents
It’s the last day of April, a chill still in the air, and Michael Goldban, head of retail leasing at Brookfield Properties, wants to take a stroll down the pristinely blighted western terminus of Bleecker Street. Wearing Dolce & Gabbana transition glasses and a black blazer (and trailed by a publicist), he’s here to tell me why he’s an optimist about brick-and-mortar retail. We’re passing empty storefront after empty storefront, including one, at No. 359, that is asking $25,000-a-month rent; it features a dozen loaves of Wonder Bread dangling in its window like Pop Art sausages, presumably to attract the attention of whimsy-minded potential tenants. But Goldban sees “opportunity” in the tidy, bougie desolation of this post-Amazon streetscape. The company he works for owns dozens of malls and office buildings worldwide, among them the former World Financial Center, opened as the luxury mall Brookfield Place after 9/11. The week before, the firm … [Read more...] about The Store (It Would Seem) Is Not Dead (At Least For Now)
