Insight On Business the News Hour

The Business News Headlines 29 November 2022

We kick things off with a story about consumers, confidence and facts that do not make sense. Then yet another company making demands of their workers...will it work? For the interview you'll meet Daniel and Christine Defenbaugh the founders of the national non-profit the 10-42  Project that travels the country in support of first responders and their families. But, how the project started is truly stunning. Also, remember that you can hook up with us all day on Twitter @IOB_NewsHour and on Instagram.  Here's what we've got for you today:

  • This story makes no sense:
  • This company is demanding workers come back;
  • They may be out of luck in the long run;
  • Biden, Unions, Congress and a Rail Strike;
  • Housing prices fell...again;
  • Drug store chains closing stores and cutting hours;
  • Some cool food news but you better hurry;
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • Forced Fun is never...fun it would seem.

For the interview you'll meet Daniel and Christine Defenbaugh from the national non-profit The 10-42 Project and what they do to help first responders cope and heal. And the story about how it came to be is...stunning.  To listen and learn click this link.
