Volkswagen to shed 30,000 jobs, cutting costs after scandal

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) — Volkswagen announced plans Friday to cut 30,000 jobs in a wide-ranging restructuring of its namesake brand as it tries to recover from a scandal over cars rigged to cheat on diesel emissions tests. The German company said the job cuts, which account to around 5 percent of its global workforce, are part of a long-term plan to improve profitability and shift resources and investment to electric-powered vehicles and digital services.

Solid US hiring in July added 255,000 jobs and lifted pay

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added a healthy 255,000 jobs in July, a sign of confidence in the economy that will likely ease concerns about signs of weak growth in the midst of the presidential race. The unemployment rate remained a low 4.9 percent, the government said Friday in its monthly jobs report. Many more Americans began looking for a job, and nearly all were hired. But the influx of job seekers meant that the number of unemployed fell only slightly. The figures suggest that employers were unfazed by either Britain’s late-June vote to quit the European Union or...

A Bull Market Record That Doesn’t Feel Like It

NEW YORK (AP) — It’s a new record for stocks, but it sure doesn’t feel like it. The biggest gainers in the past year are fuddy-duddy utilities. Investors are cowering for cover in gold. And the best they’re hoping for in the current earnings season is that profits don’t fall as much as they initially feared. It’s the second-longest bull market in history, and its old age is showing. Still, stocks have rewarded investors who had faith to hold on. With a new high for the Standard and Poor’s 500 index on Monday, it has tripled since its low...

Strong US Payrolls Give Stock Markets A Boost

  LONDON (AP) — Forecast-busting U.S. jobs data gave stocks a boost Friday, as investors breathed a sigh of relief that a weak reading in May wasn’t a sign that the world’s largest economy was slowing sharply at a time when Britain voted to leave the European Union. KEEPING SCORE: In Europe, the FTSE 100 index of leading British shares was up 0.5 percent at 6,566 while Germany’s DAX rose 1.3 percent to 9,545. The CAC-40 in France was 0.9 percent higher at 4,154.

Apple urges organ donation via new iPhone software

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple wants to encourage millions of iPhone owners to register as organ donors through a software update that will add an easy sign-up button to the health information app that comes installed on every smartphone the company makes. CEO Tim Cook says he hopes the new software, set for limited release this month, will help ease a critical and longstanding donor shortage. He said the problem hit home when his friend and former boss, Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, endured an “excruciating” wait for a liver transplant in 2009. “Watching and seeing him every day, waiting...

Donna ISD School Board Approves ‘Due Process’ Policy to Protect Employees from Unfair Practices

The Donna ISD school board unanimously approves a resolution aimed at protecting employees from unfair practices. The Teachers Association in Donna says it worked on the proposal for over three years to help pass a ‘due process’ policy to protect ‘at-will’ employees from being demoted, replaced or fired without a just cause. Board president Albert Sandoval says these efforts are not the result of a political retaliation lawsuit that the board and the district lost in April. “We’re hoping it can prevent future lawsuits. It could’ve been resolved at an earlier point. We as a board felt we were...

US gains just 38K jobs, fewest in 5 years; rate at 4.7 pct.

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers drastically slowed their hiring in May, adding just 38,000 jobs, the fewest in more than 5 years and a sign of concern after the economy barely grew in the first three months of the year. At the same time, the unemployment rate tumbled to 4.7 percent from 5 percent, the Labor Department said Friday, its lowest point since November 2007. The rate fell for a problematic reason: Nearly a half-million jobless Americans stopped looking for work and so were no longer officially counted as unemployed. The much-weaker-than-expected jobs report will raise doubts that the...
