Jeanne Kuang Delaware News Journal Published 10:55 AM EST Dec 18, 2018 Wilmington hit a 19-year high in the number of people employed there this year, a real estate firm's study has found. Drawing from Bureau of Labor Statistics reports, the study by CBRE found nearly 33,000 people worked in the city in 2018. That's the highest number since 1999. The study shows an increase in Wilmington workers since 2009, when employment hit a low of under 29,000. The reports count people working both part-time and full-time jobs. Lisa DeNight, CBRE senior research analyst, who conducted the study, said she cannot pinpoint industries where employment is growing in Wilmington specifically.

The city's unemployment rate is 5.2 percent as of October, according to … [Read more...] about Wilmington hits two-decade high for number of people working in city
I am writing once again to express my thoughts on present day political races, Supreme Court nominees and the general feeling of division in this country. As a concerned citizen of the great state of Tennessee I just want what is best for our state and country. First, the concerns of everyone concerning the nomination of Brett Kavenaugh for Supreme Court justice.

But, I feel that anyone who suffered a such a traumatic moment in their life should have made sure that friends or family was aware of it immediately. If not at the party she attended that night, but at least to friends. I understand in the immediate aftermath that you're scared, cautious of how you will be perceived and be labeled with a title that doesn't reflect who you really know who you are. I am sure everyone has stories of events that affected … [Read more...] about Where Did People Working Together Go?

They are seemingly working somewhere — the national unemployment rate is the lowest it’s been since 2000 — and data would suggest that many of them are working in offices. Blue-collar jobs now make up less than 14 percent of total employment, down from 31 percent in 1970. But understanding how these white-collar workers occupy themselves when they get to their desks in skyscrapers and office parks across America takes a little imagination. That’s because, according to David Graeber, many of them aren’t doing anything at all. In “Bull__ Jobs,” Graeber, an anthropology … [Read more...] about Are More and More People Working Meaningless Jobs?
