CityBiz: Massive market volatility, Shopify trading at 16-month low
In this business news segment, Mike Apple discusses the downward trend in the stock market, the decline of tech stocks like Shopify and Bitcoin, and the impact of citrus greening on orange juice production.
- The stock market is experiencing a downward trend due to geopolitical risks, rising interest rates, and quarterly earnings reports from major companies.
- Tech stocks like Shopify have seen significant losses in value in a short amount of time.
- Bitcoin has also experienced a 50% loss in value, but some investors see this as a buying opportunity.
- Orange juice production in Florida is expected to be impacted by citrus greening, which is a fungus that can kill trees and reduce crop yields.
The current business climate is uncertain and volatile, with many factors contributing to market fluctuations. Investors and consumers should stay informed and make careful decisions to navigate these challenges.
New Rule: Let the Population Collapse | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)
The recent report that the population of the earth will hit 8 billion in November of this year is not good news. The Secretary-General of the United Nations, of all people, said that welcoming our 8 billionth person was an occasion to celebrate our diversity. But is it really something to celebrate?
- We are facing multiple crises caused by overpopulation: climate change, food insecurity, water scarcity, extinction crisis, and collapsing ecosystems.
- Tracy Stone-Manning, the director of the Bureau of Land Management, suggests that we need to consume less and breed fewer consuming humans.
- Elon Musk claims that population collapse is the biggest problem the world will face in 20 years, but this is not true. Nature World News just reported an unprecedented global extinction crisis with more than a million species expected to die off in the next few decades.
- The argument that we can keep adding people with no consequences is the same as the one used for Bitcoin. We need to face the facts that the planet's resources are finite.
- It would take almost an entire other earth to produce the resources we need to sustain the population we have now. We need to figure out a way to be happy without always having to grow and keep growing.
- Running out of water is a big problem, but running out of resources is even bigger. We need to stop forcing ourselves into an economic model where businesses need ever more customers.
We need to stop regarding overpopulation as something to celebrate. We must consume less and breed fewer consuming humans. We need to find a way to be happy without always having to grow and keep growing. We need to face the facts that the planet's resources are finite and figure out a way to live within our means.
End of IDEL COVID Layoffs, Shopify Severance Pay and Forced Retirement
Ontario's Infectious Disease Emergency Leave was put in place in March of 2020, allowing workers to take time off for pandemic-related reasons. It also allowed employers to adjust the hours and pay of their employees. The paid sick days element has been extended to the end of March 2023, but other components have now expired.
What has been extended:
- Paid sick days have been extended until March of next year.
What has now come to an end:
- The ability of employers to put employees off work due to COVID-19 has expired.
What this means for workers:
- Employees who have been off work due to COVID-19 must be recalled back to work.
- Employers cannot put employees on a temporary layoff anymore. Employees not called back to work can treat it as a termination and get their full severance.
- Layoffs: Shopify recently laid off 10% of its workers, offering them 6-16 weeks pay plus an additional week per year of tenure. This may not be enough severance pay for a mass layoff, as full severance entitlements can be several times that.
- Retirement: People 55 years of age and older are retiring earlier than before, likely due to the pandemic. A legitimate retirement that is voluntary and unilateral does not entitle the person to any compensation or severance from their employer.
Employees who have been off work due to COVID-19 must be aware of their rights and what they are entitled to. Employers cannot put employees on a temporary layoff anymore, and employees not called back to work can treat it as a termination and get their full severance. When it comes to retirement, it must be voluntary and not forced by the employer. On your own terms is always the best way.
Employment lawyer on federal government lifting vaccine mandate for employees
Employment lawyer Leor Samfuro provides clarity on the recent news regarding federal workers in the air, rail, and marine transportation sectors. He also discusses the impact of the government's decision on federally regulated employers and the potential consequences of implementing vaccine policies.
1. Unionized employees are legally required to be brought back to work based on seniority, while non-unionized employees may face termination or severance pay.
2. Federally regulated employers can no longer use the government's mandate as a justification for implementing vaccine policies, and may face wrongful dismissal claims if they insist on such policies.
3. Reasonable notice must be given to employees before requiring them to return to the workplace.
Employers should always consider the necessity of implementing vaccine policies and be prepared to provide reasonable notice to employees. The government's decision has strengthened the position of employees who may face wrongful dismissal claims, and employers may face significant liability if they insist on policies without government guidance.
