Buy a good supply of N95 masks. Wear them if someone in your household has any respitatory virus or you are recovering from one or if you have that tickle in your throat that indicates one is coming or any symtom of covid. twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…
My household has been flattened for three weeks by a noncovid respitatory virus. It's possible to pass it on for up to 2 weeks. Stop debating masking always/only for covid and start changing social norms to insist on masking to protect others when you could be contagious.
A mama bird has built a nest in a box in my garage. This seems like it might not end well. Can I relocate the box somewhere to help the baby birds survive? Or will the baby birds hatch happily in the box in the garage, eventually making it out okay? Garage door is open. Advice?
Income-based repayment is a fair way to handle student loans but it needs to be better implemented. The Dept. of Education needs to make sure that everyone gets access and forgiveness happens when it should. I'm thrilled to see this retroactive action to fix mistakes! twitter.com/NPR/status/151…

Delta changed their announcement to remove "covid is now a seasonal virus" so I guess they realized that was dumb. twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…

We pay people more to watch cars than to care for young children, as @sanforcl points out. twitter.com/DanWuori/statu…

People will have different views about the mask mandate being removed, but claiming covid is now a seasonal virus is a weird lie. Hopefully it reflects the bizarre views of one person and not deeper underlying problems @Delta twitter.com/deltanewshub/s…
The US could choose less work & still be a rich country. We are the only advanced economy that does not require employees get paid annual leave, sick leave, maternity leave. The transition to working less might not be pretty in the stats, but it might be a better way to live. twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…
We can choose less work and more modest lifestyles, most people don’t. Those who do often aren’t choosing it, but rather having it forced on them because steady work at a living wage isn’t available. twitter.com/BudgetBen/stat…
I always initially read WFH as WTF and I'm like "wow that's hostile, oh wait"
Parking subsidies also kill me because we need people to drive less, not more. Shorter commutes, alterantive methods of transportation. twitter.com/IlliniBizDean/…
It absolutely infuriated me when I biked to work in DC that my colleagues got expensive parking for free and I got nothing. I wanted free bagels and coffee. Either everyone is on board with the non-wage compensation or you ended up compensating some workers more than others. twitter.com/DavidBarondeau…
Energy prices rose 11% in March (32% over the year) and food at home rose 1.5%. The Russian invasion of Ukraine is causing global harm and devastation within Ukraine. twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…
Airfares jump 10.7% in March, a harbinger of what might come as rising demand for in-person services collides with a tight labor market. Inflation in other services remain quite subdued: education services (-0.1), domestic (0.1), recreation (0.4), personal (0.4), medical (0.6)
Tears are streaming down my face from laughing so hard. This is why I keep opening twitter. twitter.com/LukeRodriguez7…
The Russian invasion of Ukraine is pushing up global food and energy prices and reducing the global economic outlook. twitter.com/JimPethokoukis…
We need immigration reform. Our system of treating people terribly, underfunding the resources needed to carry out our own rules, hurts those trying to come to the US & undermines govt more broadly. Our broken immigration system shows newcomers that our government doesn't work. twitter.com/uttara_a/statu…
Or is it the lack of a testable hypothesis? twitter.com/TheStalwart/st…
Schultz’s answer to the desire to unionize: Go somewhere else. twitter.com/jordanzakarin/…
Billionaires versus those making minimum wage. It isn’t pretty. It isn’t fair. Stand up for what is right. Tax the billionaires. Discipline union busting activities. twitter.com/MorePerfectUS/…
Our democracy is buckling under the weight of these facts. Raise the minimum wage and tax the unearned income of billionaires. twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…
In 2021: 736 U.S. billionaires earned a trillion dollars or roughly $27 million a week each. 1.1 million U.S. workers earned $7.25 an hour or less, less than $300 a week for those full-time. More than half of full-time workers in the U.S. earned less than $1,000 a week.
There are great jobs outside of academia--here's one! twitter.com/jamesbrandecon…
Remember when Walmart proposed making cashiers collect shopping carts every once in a while so the unhealthy cashiers potentially driving up health care costs would quit? The @zerodhaonline "fun health program" is worse [refresh your memory on Walmart: nytimes.com/2005/10/26/bus…] twitter.com/Nithin0dha/sta…
I have been thinking of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson's parents all week. I'm so thrilled that they are around to see how much they succeeded. twitter.com/CBSNews/status…
Why do we need immigration reform? We are missing foreign workers econofact.org/labor-shortage… twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…
There is one clear way to ensure that labor supply increases quickly: immigration reform.

Two very confusing things to me in this ad: The Sackler family is from New York. The second is that he wants to stop citizens crossing borders and filling Ohio with "Democrat voters" twitter.com/JDVance1/statu…
To be clear--this is to get her out of committee. She will be confirmed. But the racism and sexism on display here is obliterating any pretense of meritocratic selection. twitter.com/BetseyStevenso…
Imagine having as absolutely impecable a demeanor and record as a judge and lawyer and the infinite patience of Ketanji Brown Jackson. Absolute perfection and she still can't get a single Republican vote.
The great resignation is a great upgrade of jobs where workers are moving to better opportunities. It's not reduced labor supply. twitter.com/markets/status…

Remarkable chart: In just 2 years, nearly all the jobs lost in the pandemic are back. It took 5.5 years to do this after the 2001 recession And nearly 8 years to do this after the 2007-08 Great Recession. twitter.com/calculatedrisk…

63% of the job gains went to women this month and they've ticked up toward holding 49.8% of jobs. Still below the 50% they held prior to the pandemic but the gap is closing.
Over the past 12 months, we've added 6.5 million jobs and 7.5 million people have become employed.
Taking a longer look than just a month: The participation rate is up .5 over December and the employment rate is up .6 over December. That's an additional 2.5 million people working compared to a SA December.
Really solid jobs report. Job gains are continuing at a rapid clip, unemployment going down, participation going up.
This was a great session with a fantastic paper by Romain Duval and team in the IMF research department And excellent contributions from @annastansbury @pogourinchas and @ojblanchard1 The paper and discussion slides are available here piie.com/events/labor-m… twitter.com/annastansbury/…

What's the cost of the wage gap ... in retirement? For women, it's an estimated $1.6M in lost savings & investment. For Black women, the amount is up to $3.8M. For Hispanic, women it's $4.5M. My story here --> @amprog @BetseyStevenson @JKlein46 cnb.cx/35sjwB6

This would be funny if there weren't so many adjuncts working for wages that barely put them above the poverty line and if tipping culture wasn't part of the justification for extremely low wages in many occupations. twitter.com/ass_deans/stat…
