Insight On Business the News Hour

The Business News Headlines 20 April 2020

April 20, 2020

In case you had not heard the price of oil for May delivery fell into negative numbers. Like -$37.63 a barrel. We'll share why and that's just one of several stories we've got on tap today:

  • Big businesses get cash; Mom & Pop...nada;
  • Wells Fargo...again;
  • Too much oil means: Think Supply & Demand;
  • Another meat processing facility to close;
  • The clothing industry is trouble...a confession;
  • Debt collection and stimulus checks;
  • The Wall Street Report
  • Students to miss out on summer internships. 

Those stories PLUS I'll visit with Charlie Wishman the Secretary Treasurer for the Iowa Federation of Labor AFL-CIO about "essential workers". If they are so "essential" why are we not doing more to protect them?  It's a good question and today those issues were taken directly to Governor Kim Reynolds of Iowa.  Click here for the story. 

Thanks for listening.
