The Business News Headlines 3 June 2022

Today we learned that the U.S. added 390,000 jobs. Wall Street was hoping for much less…  It’s the business news headlines for Friday the 3rd day of June, thanks for being with us everybody. This has been quite a week and we've felt it here. Just last night two young people lost their lives in a church parking lot in Ames, Iowa and the shooter then took his own life in what is being described as a "domestic situation". Gun violence continues to rock us and the entire nation.  Sorry for the sidetrack but it's been a week.  In the business news headlines:

  • 390,000 jobs added in May - Wall Street wanted fewer;
  • Does that add up?  Some thoughts;
  • Meanwhile there has been a surge in layoffs;
  • But fewer people are filing for unemployment;
  • Headed toward a recession or...not?
  • Acquiring Kohls is, well, complicated;
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • Restaurants may be biting the hand that feeds them.

Financial Literacy - Building a Better Nation, Business & Family with Jack Stack

Off mic he said to me, "I'm going to share with you what ails so many businesses, families and our nation and it can be wrapped up in two words, financial literacy." Meet Jack Stack: businessman, author, keynote speaker who, in the next several minutes, will share with you how you can build a thriving business by getting everybody on board...and it's not done by holding hands and singing Kumbaya. No, his tried and true method is to get everybody from the line worker to HR to engineering to marketing to the front office to better understand what's going on "inside the numbers" and how they can play a part in creating productivity and profit. And, it not only can help businesses but also families and that, he says, will cure so many of our nation's ills. Strap in for Jack Stack.
