    The Impact of Better Compensation and Benefits Packages on the Workplace

    in Work

    It seems as though all the talk in the human resources and employee benefits world today is about how employers are trying to "get out of the benefits business." The combination of the 2008 recession coupled with the passage of the Affordable Care Act stagnated employee compensation and began to erode employee benefits packages -- all in the name of cutting back on expenses and improving corporate profitability. 


    Then, on January 2, 2015, Bobby Fry, one of the owners of Bar Marco, in Pittsburgh, PA, tweeted that the restaurant would stop accepting gratuities from its patrons and, starting in April, move its 20 full-time employees to a $35,000 base salary and provide full health coverage, vacation days and private shares. The Internet exploded with interest. 


    About two weeks later, Hartford, CT-based Aetna announced it would raise it's minimum wage to $16/hour -- begining in April 2015. The company will also give approximately 7,000 employees access to health benefits next year that should lower their out-of-pocket costs by up to $4,000.


    Economists Jan Zilinsky and Justin Wolfers released a paper coincident with the Aetna annoucement that reviewed the question: Under what circumstances can raising the pay of low-skilled workers at large corporations lead to general improvements in productivity?


    Both Jan Zilinsky and Bobby Fry join Carol Harnett this month to discuss the reasoning behind and impact of higher wages and better benefits on the workplace.

    TODAY'S SPOTLIGHT


    EXAMINATION OF SYSTEMIC FAILURE DUE TO INCENTIVE COMPENSATION FOR MORTGAGE SERVICERS PROMOTOES FORECLOSURE OVER MORTGAGE ASSISTANCE FOR PURE FINANCIAL GAIN CFPB RIGHTS


    "the daily complaint"


    Every weekday we answer client complaints on The Daily Complaint to provide direction and resources for both the person complaining as well as other consumers experiencing similar issues whether it be mortgage fraud, loan servicing escrow issues, loan modification runarounds or denials, short sale refusals, deed in lieu negotiations and credit card debt collector abuses and fraud violations.


     


    I routinely look for posts to answer in hopes that it will not only bring optimism to those homeowners and borrowers in distress but also some basic information to assist in fighting the banks that are "too big to fail" like Bank of America and Citi but yet don't appreciate the bailout that we provided in their time of need.  The debt collectors like Ocwen and Nationstar are simply just piranhas but they can be beat at their own game too just like the big banks can be defeated.  


     


    We are committed to answering consumer complaints and addressing everyday credit and debt issues on The Daily Complaint and I thank you for your continued support!


    We hope you enjoy the Show...

    Eugenics Compensation Sterilizaton Program

    in Education

    In 1927, the US Supreme Court case Buck v. Bell set a legal precedent that states may sterilize inmates of public institutions. The court argued that imbecility, epilepsy, and feeblemindedness are hereditary, and that inmates should be prevented from passing these defects to the next generation. On 2 May 1927, in an eight to one decision, the US Supreme Court ordered that Carrie Buck, whom it called a feebleminded daughter of a feebleminded mother and herself the mother of a feebleminded child, be sterilized under the 1924 Virginia Eugenical Sterilization Act. Buck v. Bell determined that compulsory sterilization laws did not violate due process awarded by the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution. It also bolstered the American eugenics movement and established legal authority for sterilizing more than 60,000 US citizens in more than thirty states, until most of the practices ended in the 1970s.

    The Law of Compensation with Dr. Dee Adio-Moses

    in Spirituality

    The purpose of this hour is to share how you can use the Law of Compensation to lift yourself out of the place where you are to the place where you rightfully belong. Your right place is where you can enjoy success and plenty; this is natural, as the Law intended; your failure to realize  these things is a miscalculation, a mistake. The Law does not need to change. Success or prosperity does not need to be made, it always is. But you in turn must change; then your affairs will follow the change.


    Join me to learn what the KEY is.


    Dr. Dee Adio-Moses is a Visionary, Author, Life Strategist and Educator.  An ordained Minister with a PhD specializing in Holistic Life and Spiritual Counseling. Dr. Dee is the Founder and Spiritual Leader of Healing Center of Christ International and Better than Ever Community. Dr. Dee is a modern day key proponent of Oneness Consciousness as a healing strategy, and provides  step by step programs to help you on your oneness journey, teaching you to  master your emotions, your body, your relationships, your finances, and your life.
