Stephanie Taylor is the outreach manager at Covenant House Michigan, a shelter for homeless youth ages 18 to 24 located in Detroit. She spends her days making contact with at-risk youth to offer them food, clothing, and medical attention, and encourages them to come stay at the Covenant House shelter. Taylor and her colleagues provide education, employment, and permanent housing opportunities to help youth get back on track and become independent adults. Some of these youth don't like rules, and they've been banned from other shelters for violence, but as outreach workers, it's our job to service them. For these young people we serve at Covenant House, we workers become their aunts or uncles or families.

People visit at the Shops at Hudson Yards during early opening for the Black Friday sales in Manhattan, New York, November 27, 2020. Spending online on Black Friday this year surged nearly 22% to hit a new record, according to data from Adobe Analytics, as the Covid pandemic pushed more people to shop from the sofa and avoid crowded stores and malls. This makes Black Friday 2020 the second-largest online spending day in history in the United States, behind Cyber Monday last year, Adobe said. Cyber Monday this year is slated to become the largest digital sales day ever, with spending reaching between $10.8 billion and $12.7 billion, which would represent growth of 15% to 35% from a year earlier. People who did venture out were greeted with fewer lines and emptier parking lots than holiday sales events of the past.

“He is bringing the issue to a head,” one of the sources told Reuters on Friday. The owning families declined to comment, the company’s works council and the German state of Lower Saxony, which owns a VW stake, declined to comment. Diess’ contract is due to expire in 2023 after he was appointed head of the VW brand in 2015 and group chief executive in April 2018. These included installing two allies Arno Antlitz as chief financial officer and Thomas Schmall as chief procurement officer on the management board, three sources told Reuters. Volkswagen’s labour chief Bernd Osterloh is also said to oppose a contract extension, one of the three sources said.

LONDON (Reuters) - Activist investor Gianluca Ferrari, who has led campaigns against a string of mid-cap firms, is setting up a fund targeting companies lagging on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. That, said Ferrari, left a gap for activist managers to agitate for change at weaker companies in order to bring about more sustainable returns and share price gains. Ferrari said Clearway would be the first set up to focus exclusively on ESG-focused activism in Europe. While activist investors have traditionally focused on governance issues, many are now tilting their campaigns towards other ESG elements, especially climate. Joining Ferrari at Clearway as partner is James Dilworth, who has worked at asset manager DWS, Allianz and Morgan Stanley Investment Management.

This year’s holiday shopping season is expected to bring in record sales — forcing many retail workers to the front lines of the pandemic, often without hazard pay, despite another surge of coronavirus infections. “Retail workers experience heightened stress and pressure during the holiday season, even in normal times. While this might come as good news for brick-and-mortar stores that have been crushed by the pandemic, retail workers are nervous about the potential onslaught of eager shoppers — many of whom don’t always follow social distancing and mask rules. But among those companies, workers received an average increase in pay of just $1.11 per hour since the pandemic began. “They’re not worried about safety.”Many retail workers say they have no choice but to risk getting sick.

Key takeaways: More than half of Black voters called the coronavirus pandemic the top priority that elected officials should address, followed by discrimination and racial justice. Black voters also expressed deep concerns about systemic racism, especially as it relates to the criminal justice system and mass incarceration. The poll found that 8 of 10 Black voters supported reducing prison and jail populations, as well as detention of immigrants. About 91 percent of Black women voted for Biden and Harris, most exit polling data show. "The holy grail for us as a community must be getting Black men to vote at the same rate as Black women."

Before the event, a local drag racer had warned via Facebook Live that Black Lives Matter was coming “to bring hate to our town,” according to BuzzFeed. Black Lives Matter protesters, encircled by police, from right, and counter protesters, from left, meet along East Plane Street in Bethel, Ohio on June 15, 2020. The actions of the Minneapolis police reminded them of the corrupt, brutal authorities back in India, Kaur recalled. The group’s youth summer program, which usually visits Pismo Beach for a week, instead held discussions via Zoom on Black Lives Matter. “I see Kevin on the side of the road — what’s he doing?” he recalled one of them saying.

Vance published his memoir, "Hillbilly Elegy," in June 2016, no one could have foreseen how Donald Trump's imminent electoral victory would propel him into the role of America's de facto "poverty whisperer." "Hillbilly Elegy" and its convenient timing propelled the author to the top of the talking-head circuit. These shared experiences make it obvious to me that Netflix's "Hillbilly Elegy" fails to communicate anything of real substance. In doing so, "Hillbilly Elegy" turned Vance into a household name by peddling his anecdotal accounts of welfare abuse or habitual unemployment to justify the idea that people are to blame for their own suffering. By following Vance's lead, Howard has turned a community's moral failings and human anguish into Oscar bait for those looking to find yet another reason to scoff at the working class.

Two anti-mask Costco shoppers have been arrested recently, following clashes with employees. Workers have been facing harassment and violence from anti-mask customers for months. This Black Friday, experts say the enforcement of mask policies is crucial to keep workers and customers safe.

Confrontations with anti-mask customers have become a worrisome part of life for many retailer workers in recent months.
