And it’s not rocket science. Endorse the skills of others, and there’s a good chance a considerable percentage of them will return the favor. I recommend starting with the people you’re closest to and have the tightest relationships with. This might include colleagues, team members, previous employers, and satisfied customers/clients. Look over the skills they list on their profiles, and add a few endorsements. Once they see you’ve made the effort to help them, many will be inclined to help you as well. If they know for a fact you’re adept at a particular skill, it shouldnt be any trouble for them to endorse you. And the beautiful thing is it’s easy to do. It’s not like it requires a major time commitment. Unlike personal recommendations that require someone to write a unique statement, an endorsement requires only a single click. It’s really no big deal.

Three in four rural counties still havent fully recovered from the recession, according to the National Association of Counties. Some had manufacturing or mining economies upended by economic shifts. Their tax base has been eroded and their workers dont have the skills that modern employers want. “People bought into Trump, particularly in these hardest-hit areas, on the idea that he’s going to create jobs,” said Chris Estes, president of the National Housing Conference. “This is not a budget for them.” Federal grants have been a lifesaver for Gary, especially after Indiana state legislators rolled back local property taxes and cut the city’s budget in half. This year, Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson is scrambling to close a $9 million deficit. Three years ago, Freeman-Wilson, a Democrat, used a community development block grant to demolish a 14-story hotel that had been abandoned since the 1980s.

"Labor law is rigged in favor of union leadership against the interest of its own members. Union elites have grown unresponsive to their members, trampling their workplace rights to maintain power," he said in a statement. "The complicity and silence of Democrats in denying employee rights is embarrassing." Heather Greenaway, spokesman for the Workforce Fairness Institute, said that the legislation fell in line with President Trump's message of prioritizing workers over the interests of employers and union officials. The move toward a secret ballot election would prevent businesses from agreeing to card check organizing, in which labor petitions replace an actual vote on joining the union. "This legislation represents the interests of workers and protects them in workplaces across America by respecting their right to choose or reject labor representation," she said in a release.

Pointing to the myriad challenges that come up at the workplace, the group’s director, Shubha Chacko says, “For instance women go out for lunch together and men go out and sit somewhere else and the trans person does not know where she is supposed to go.” The larger group placed at Kochi Metro will not only make it easier to overcome such challenges, but also send out a message to potential employers. “That means the signal is coming out from the government that others can do it. Otherwise there are people who are always feeling – is it OK, is it not OK? So the norm starts to change,” says Chacko. Signs of such a change are already there in Kochi. Dilraj, an MBA from the prestigious Indian Institute of Management at Kozhikode says that after the Kochi Metro initiative, some people have already expressed their willingness to hire transgender people if the experiment goes well.

We do have space for them as well as the land for them to come and set up, he said adding that TPM will be able to offer such rates due to the model it operates on. According to Shahazman, there is still a shortage of local talents, hence it is vital to create more successful homegrown companies in order for talents to flourish. “We want to create more successes amongst companies. When they are successful, they will be employers. That is the game we are playing. Contributions to the economy will come as more and more companies in TPM are successful,” he said. Some of the companies which have benefited from the programme are upstream oil and gas products designer MIT Technologies Sdn Bhd; energy efficient LED bulb solution provider Callotec Sdn Bhd and GeneNews Diagnostics, a creater of Colonsentry, a colon cancer detector. So far there are 108 incubation centres in the country which are still active out of the initial 132. Eight are dormant and the remaining closed.

These are rights of husbands and rights of wives, as well as rights of children and other relatives. In different parts of the world we can find many examples when Muslim husbands refuse to sustain their wives, rather their wives sustain them, when a former husband doesn't give any financial support to his ex-spouse during her Iddah , as well as he doesn't provide his children from a temporary or even permanent marriage with everything what they need (though according to Shari'ah he must do so), when wives violate against their Islamic obligations and the rules of modesty, when fathers in fact sell their daughters and appropriate their dowry (mahr) which is the lawful property of a daughter only, when Shari'ah inheritance rights are infringed by different means, when employers don't pay their employees or don't conclude adequate lawful working contracts, when rich minority enjoys prosperity while poor people suffer from the lack of money as Islamic taxes aimed to shortening a gap between the rich and the poor are not imposed upon financial elite.

Government intervention in the labor market would focus on university graduatesinternship programs, incentives such as insurance exemptions for employers, on-job training programs, the overhaul of technical and vocational training, etc. Foreign policy Active diplomacy for expansion of international cooperation, peace, moderation, and economic prosperity is the hallmark of the master plan in foreign policy. After discussing at length the (unfortunate) legacy of the Ahmadinejad era and the achievements of the first Rouhani administration, the proposal brings up its own assessment of major global trends, which include redistribution of global power, spread of global power, and demographic changes underway. It then moves on to discuss the developments caused by the interplay of these trends. These include: a) Renewed pivotal role for Asia-Pacific in international security and world economy; b) Changing global equilibria, which do not necessarily guarantee a peaceful transition of power from West to East; c) Weakened globalism, which has brought regionalism to higher priority in foreign policy-making; d) Decreased coherence and legitimate liberal order, failing to address needs for justice in the multicultural atmosphere; e) Failed states turning into a major security issue; f) Discredited zero-sum games in an age of abundant uncertainties; g) Climate change and environmental crises turning into an indispensable part of international security; h) Non-governmental actors that must be taken into foreign policy considerations; i) Failed states that could no longer resolve certain issues without collective will and institutionalized international cooperation; j) Emergence of retrogressive movements and empowered populist and radical political factions and parties.

Per football journalist Tom Kundert, Silva has a work rate that matches his wonderful ability with the ball too: As is the case with any 22-year-old player, there are moments when Silva can frustrate, and there will be questions about whether he can produce the same magic in a higher standard of division. Encouragingly for City supporters, the Portuguese has been tremendous in the UEFA Champions League too, impressing against elite opposition in Manchester City, Borussia Dortmund and Juventus . He also scored in the win over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley. Provided that Silva can shoulder the pressure of the move, his new employers will be confident they've snapped up one of world football's fastest-rising stars.

Raising the minimum wage helps workers who currently earn that amount but decreases the number of low-wage workers that businesses hire shortly thereafter, a new study finds. While the federal minimum wage rate stands at $7.25 an hour, actual pay for low-wage workers varies across the country because some states and cities have adopted higher wages than the nationally-mandated minimum. Studies have taken place to determine the effect of these increases on employment, but consensus remains elusive because of small samples and specific industry-based studies. Asking if a higher minimum wage is good or bad is not productive, says Radhakrishnan Gopalan, professor of finance at the Olin Business School at Washington University in St. Louis. It's not a right or wrong proposition, it's a nuanced answer depending on the composition of both employees and employers.

8) Hiring Top Talent Why It's a Challenge Hiring top talent was the eighth biggest challenge marketers reported experiencing this year. Why? Many companies are shifting more resources to inbound marketing, which means higher and higher demand for top marketing talent. But supply simply isn't keeping up. From sourcing the right candidates to evaluating for the right skills, finding the perfect person could take months ... or more. What's more, the type of marketing talent companies are looking for is changing, too. In Moz and Fractl's analysis of thousands of job postings on Indeed.com, they concluded that employers are seeking marketers with technical and creative skill sets. And the quick rate at which the demand for these jobs are rising has caused a marketing skills gap, "making it difficult to find candidates with the technical, creative, and business proficiencies needed to succeed in digital marketing.
