Top News

Welcome
This month, two of our top stories deal with current trends in labor - more specifically, who is out there looking for work and what to look out for when hiring. Finally, we take a look at the state of the health care union and what it means to businesses - and their current and future employees.


Illegal Immigration
On Tuesday, May 10, President Obama made a trip to El Paso, Texas, where he made a speech about getting tough on national immigration reform, including his intention to crack down on American businesses that hire illegal immigrants. With unemployment levels still higher than economists would like, this aspect of immigration reform is sure to have an impact on hiring practices for businesses big and small.

Hiring Millennials
With graduation ceremonies kicking off around the country, we take a look at the job market, which looks positive for graduates for the first time since 2007.

  Go Figure

 
  Percentage of employers who responded in a Towers Watson survey this past winter that they were confident they would be offering health insurance to employees in a decade, down from 73% in 2007.  
 
  What Do You Think?
How confident are you that your company will offer health insurance to employees ten years from now? Weigh in
  • I’m 100% certain we will
  • I’d say there is a good chance we will
  • About 50-50
  • Probably not
  • Definitely not
 
Safety Rules
Are you getting the best rates possible from your workers’ comp insurance carrier? Having a great safety record might not be enough. Sit down with your carrier and show them all of the great things you do to control your losses. The more you can convince them that you’re a low-risk account, the better chance you have of getting the best rates available for your company.
