— President Obama Hosts Early Illinois Supporters at White House Party – Mary Ann Ahern
http://www.nbcchicago.com/news/local/president-obama-hosts-early-illinois-supporters-at-white-house-party-395510691.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The guest list for Friday night’s party included former Senate President Emil Jones, who was considered instrumental in Obama’s rise from the state senate to the U.S. Senate, along with former Republican State Senator Kirk Dillard. Back in 2007, Dillard was featured in a television ad campaign for Obama, highlighting the then-junior senator’s support from both parties. That same ad later played a negative role in Dillard’s failed GOP primary campaign for governor.)

BLOOMINGTON PANTAGRAPH
— Local numbers provide context on income issue – Steve Vogel  (DIERSEN: How financially diverse is your county, your township/ward, your municipality, and your precinct?)
http://www.pantagraph.com/news/opinion/vogel-local-numbers-provide-context-on-income-issue/article_333cee83-5535-57c6-bbc7-4d0999fab26e.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to the Economic Policy Institute, a left-leaning Washington think tank, the average 1 percenter family in McLean County earned $679,124 three years ago (the latest data available), while the remaining 99 percent earned an average of $51,440. That means a 1 percenter here makes about 13 times more than the rest of us earn, on average. That ratio puts McLean County pretty much in the middle of a ranking of the nation’s 3,064 counties. Somewhat comforting, I think, especially in the context of some other EPI data. For instance, McLean County’s 1 percenters take in 11.8 percent of the income earned here. That compares with 26 percent in Lake County — the high water mark in Illinois — and the national average of 20.1 percent. The latter two numbers are stunners. A local figure that may trouble egalitarians more is that 41 percent of McLean County’s moolah is made by the top 10 percent of earners. Another way to say that: 10 percent of local households take in 41 cents of every dollar earned here. Yet it’s 57 cents in Lake County, and about 48 cents in all of Illinois and the entire nation. Again, striking numbers. Do you aspire to be a 1 percenter in McLean County? Your family would have to earn at least $365,000 to make the cut — about $24,000 less than the national average. The best (and fresher) news comes from the U.S. Census Bureau. Last year, it says, nearly 5,700 McLean County residents climbed out of poverty. Unfortunately 19,116 McLean County residents are still classified as poor. That’s 11.5 percent of our population — a big number, to be sure, but 3.4 percentage points better than two years ago.)

http://time.com/money/4515096/hillary-clinton-national-service-reserve-millennials/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hillary Clinton wants you to serve your country. The Democratic presidential candidate proposed a new program on Friday aimed at expanding national service volunteer opportunities–for young Americans in particular. Clinton’s National Service Reserve would allow Americans pitch in with ongoing service projects addressing the addiction epidemic or helping the homeless, or perhaps to help provide emergency relief in national disasters and situations such as the water crisis in Flint, Mich. Clinton plans to work with corporations and universities to ensure “reservists” get paid time off to volunteer or, in the case of students, college credit.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— Trump opponents, supporters clash outside Bolingbrook fundraiser – Frank Vaisvilas and Alicia Fabbre (DIERSEN: Those who spoke very highly of Trump at this outstanding event included Roger Claar and Rudy Giuliani.  The 300+ attendees included John Cabello, Brad Cole, Dan Cronin, Demetra DeMonte, Kirk Dillard, Ron Gidwitz, Dan Hampton, David MacNeil, Richard Porter, Todd Ricketts, Skip Saviano, Tim Schneider, Mickey Straub, and Dave Tornga.)
http://www.chicagotribune.com/suburbs/bolingbrook-plainfield/news/ct-nvs-trump-bolingbrook-st-0929-20160928-story.html
(FROM AN EARLIER VERSION OF THE ARTICLE: David John Diersen, editor for gopillinois.com, said Rudy Giuliani made a surprise appearance.  He said Trump made many jokes and his winning Illinois is “in the realm of possibilities.” Attendee Joshua Naponiello, who’s a volunteer with the DuPage County GOP, said Trump gave a speech with talking points that included reducing regulation, reducing taxes for businesses and the middle class and repealing Obamacare. He said one of Trump’s guests included a representative of the Pakistani Islamic community and an Islamic prayer was given and everyone prayed along. Some of Trump’s supporters also showed up early, including Garry Slabaugh of Romeoville. He said he is excited the candidate he supported since the beginning of the primaries was virtually in his backyard. “I heard about (the fundraiser) last night, and I could hardly sleep,” Slabaugh said. “My wife wishes she was off today so she could be here.” He said he and his wife attended the Trump rally at UIC on March 11 that was canceled amid security concerns. “People were pounding our van and called us racist and they didn’t even know us,” Slabaugh said. “I hope it’s not like that today.” He said he’s not a racist and supports Trump because “he’s tells the truth.” “I don’t like the way things are going,” Slabaugh said. “I don’t want more of the same.” Police staged all demonstrators, supporters and media in a field across the street from the clubhouse not allowing anyone uninvited into the private event in which donors paid up to $250,000.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Trump pumps up the room in Bolingbrook fundraiser – Michael Sneed
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/sneed-trump-pumps-up-the-room-in-bolingbrook-fundraiser/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Hey! Hey!  It was a Trump love fest. Pull up a luncheon chair. Donald Trump, who has dinged Chicago for our murder rate, denounced the Cubs last year for being poorly run by owners who opposed his campaign, and expressed concern for the Chicago Bears going forward — was all banter, burble and bubble at a private luncheon in Bolingbrook on Wednesday. “I love Chicago. I am an investor here. It’s a great city,” chirped Trump, who left the Bolingbrook Golf Club fund-raiser organized by savvy Bolingbrook Mayor Roger Claar with $1.5 million bucks in his political pocket. “It was a huge blowout,” a luncheon source said. Trump, who took no questions from the 350 plus donors dining on cold salmon salad and Claar’s favorite yellow pudding, played it mellow while pitching podium bon mots to the audience in the Ronald Reagan room. Todd Ricketts, a co-owner of the Cubs who is CEO of the conservative Ending Spending Super PAC, was in attendance. In a shout-out to Ricketts, Trump yelled: “I want to commend the Ricketts family on their business plan and how they rebuilt the Chicago Cubs in a few short years!”  Ricketts shouted back:” It’s gonna be a great year because YOU are going to win the presidency AND THE CUBS ARE GOING TO WIN THE WORLD SERIES!”  (Trump’s praise for the Cubs followed disclosures Wednesday morning Joe Ricketts was doing a turnaround, endorsing Trump and donating $1 million to elect him.) The room erupted into applause. Trump was now on a roll. Tossing a huge shoutout to retired Hall of Fame football defensive tackle Dan Hampton, whom he mistakenly called “Dave,” Trump praised Hampton and asked him to join him on stage. “My daughter Ivanka always reminds me I am a BIG guy,” said Trump, who reportedly weighs 267 pounds. “So I just want to show my children there are guys bigger than me. And I want you to tell coach [Mike] Ditka how much I love the guy and appreciate his support and friendship.”  Then Trump told Hampton he “wished you’d suit up because the Bears need you.”  Trump also volunteered to lend Hampton his knees. “I have great knees and if you want to borrow them. I’d be more than happy to do so,” Trump said. Trump then gave a big shout-out to WeatherTech CEO David MacNeil, commending him for manufacturing his product in America. MacNeil shouted back: “And I employ 1,100 people here in Bolingbrook.” Trump, however, saved the knife for Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, who has refused to endorse Trump. The source claimed Trump stated: “It is one thing not to endorse me, but it another thing to use me in ads for yourself against me. Guys like Kirk who are behind in the polls can’t figure out why guys like me are ahead in the polls.” Trump, who told the crowd his campaign raised $18 million since his televised debate two days ago, singled Kirk out several times for disdain, the source added. Trump also praised Claar, who organized the event. Overseeing a diverse community, Claar’s event had a Muslim deliver the invocation, an African-American as master of ceremonies, and an African-American woman sing the national anthem, according to the source.)

  1. LOUIS TODAY
    — Do whites and men have too much power? – Scott Clement and Emily Guskin  (DIERSEN: How much power do you have?  Power is religious, government, political, and/or financial clout.)
    http://www.stltoday.com/news/national/govt-and-politics/do-whites-and-men-have-too-much-power/article_a343bfc0-b572-5f66-90f1-215d5820e7dc.html
    (FROM THE ARTICLE: It’s no secret that race and gender issues have been front-and-center in this year’s presidential contest, and a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shines a new light on a central part of this dynamic: views of the power of whites and men. White men fueled Trump’s overall support in the poll, with likely voters in this demographic favoring him by a whopping 40-point margin, compared with a nearly tied contest among white women (46-44) and Clinton’s 50-point lead among all non-white voters (69-19). The Post-ABC poll also asked whether men, women, whites and racial and ethnic minorities have “too much,” “too little” or “about the right amount” of influence in the country. Just more than four in 10 registered voters say each of women and minorities have too little influence, while far fewer say either has too much sway. Looking at whites and men, nearly four in 10 voters say men have too much influence in the country, while one-third says the same about whites. Putting those questions together, voters split evenly, with 48 percent saying whites or men have too much influence, while 48 percent say neither group does. The Post-ABC poll found responses to this question are closely connected with support for Clinton and Trump. Trump’s support is 36 points higher among voters who say whites have “about the right amount” or “too little” influence in America, compared with those who say whites have too much influence (53 percent to 17 percent). Trump’s support is also 27 percentage points higher among voters who reject the idea that men have “too much” influence, compared with those who do. Put together, Trump leads Clinton by a 57-28 margin among voters who say neither whites nor men have too much influence, while he trails Clinton by 52 points among voters who say both whites and men have too much influence (14-66). Fascinatingly, the impact of these attitudes is largest among voters who belong to the two historically advantaged demographics. Whites voters who say their racial group has too much influence prefer Clinton by a 38-point margin over Trump (61-23), while those who say their influence is about right or insufficient favor Trump by a 40-point margin (63-23). Likewise, male voters who say men are too influential favor Clinton by 25 points (52-27) while those who feel men are not too powerful prefer Trump by a 44-point margin (59-25). Political divisions over gender and race are far from new, and the poll also finds big partisan splits on these questions – an indication that they predate Clinton and Trump’s candidacies. Democrats are about twice as likely to say men have too much influence as Republicans and three times as likely to say whites have too much sway. But it is also likely that heated rhetoric over police shootings of black men, racism, sexism and immigration have helped solidify partisan divisions on issues of race and gender.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— Sandack resigned after explicit video sent to others
http://chicago.suntimes.com/chicago/report-sandack-resigned-after-explicit-video-sent-to-others/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Former Republican state Rep. Ron Sandack, once a top ally of Gov. Bruce Rauner, resigned from the Illinois Legislature after several people viewed a sexually graphic video featuring the former lawmaker that was temporarily posted to Facebook, Politico is reporting. Politico, citing anonymous sources, reports that the “encounter” with the woman was recorded and posted to Sandack’s social media accounts with several of his contacts tagged in the video. Sandack previously has said he was extorted via Facebook and Skype by a woman who lured him “to engage in inappropriate online conversations.” Once Republicans learned of the video and its surfacing, a top state operative urged Sandack to resign, Politico reports. Sandack issued a statement to Politico denying he was asked to resign but didn’t address questions about the existence of the video or whether it was distributed to others. Reached Friday morning, a Sandack spokesman told the Chicago Sun-Times that Sandack would have no further comment. Last week, Sandack said he was extorted by a woman who lured him “to engage in inappropriate online conversations.” His admission came after Downers Grove police released new details about the bizarre episode in 34 pages of reports that conclude they can’t seek criminal charges in the case because the apparent perpetrator or perpetrators live in the Philippines. The police reports — much of them redacted — paint a picture of a middle-aged man sucked into a scheme that began with him communicating with a young woman online and ended with him feeling compelled to send her money and seeing a fake Facebook account set up in his name. The Sun-Times and other news outlets have asked the Illinois attorney general’s office to review whether those redactions are legal under the state’s Freedom of Information Act. The attorney general’s office is reviewing those requests. Whether the fake Facebook account contained potentially embarrassing information is unclear. Large portions of the police documents remain redacted. Sandack wired money to the Philippines because he felt threatened, according to police, who classified the case as “extortion.” In his statement last week, Sandack — who became Rauner’s most vocal ally in the Illinois House — said the woman lured him in. “This past July, I was the target of an international crime ring focusing on high-profile individuals luring them to engage in inappropriate online conversations with the intent of extortion,” Sandack said then. “I took their bait and fell for it hook, line and sinker. “Poor decisions on my part enabled me to be a victim and, as a responsible citizen, I reported it and have been working with the police.” Sandack, 52, who as a state lawmaker was very active on social media, abruptly resigned from the Legislature on July 24. He is a former Downers Grove mayor.)

http://www.politico.com/states/illinois/story/2016/09/how-a-compromising-video-led-to-the-downfall-of-a-gop-rising-star-105736
(FROM THE ARTICLE: According to sources who spoke to POLITICO on the condition of anonymity, when Republicans learned that a video had surfaced, a top state operative urged Sandack to resign. The series of events threatened to become a political nightmare for Republicans, who are desperately trying to gain seats in November in a Legislature where the party remains a super-minority. The potential for political exposure was especially true for Rauner, who had repeatedly tapped the vocal Sandack as a surrogate in public battles on and off the House floor. Sandack initially rejected the idea of an outright resignation, two Republican sources said. He felt strongly about his public career, and while he admitted he messed up he was also a victim of a crime. In a statement to POLITICO, Sandack adamantly disputed the idea that anyone else urged him to step down. “The information that Politico has is unequivocally false as No one suggested that I resign, much less pressured me to do so, it was solely my decision,” Sandack said in a statement relayed by an associate.)

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/09/23/business/dealbook/jp-morgan-may-face-new-scrutiny-in-china-hiring-case.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Fed and O.C.C. investigations stem from the bank’s efforts to hire the children of China’s ruling elite — and in some cases link those jobs or internships to securing business with Chinese government-run companies. But unlike the S.E.C. and federal prosecutors, the banking regulators are not focused on the bribery aspect of the case, but rather a breakdown in controls and practices that allowed the improper hiring to take place.)

GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job.  IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.  The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.)

Political activity and beliefs  You might want to think twice before you tell everyone at work what you really think of Donald Trump. “[M]ost employees in America working for private employers do not have any legal protection against discrimination on the basis of political affiliation or activity,” Workplace Fairness explained.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-illinois-unauthorized-immigration-decline-met-20160920-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The number of unauthorized immigrants residing in Illinois dropped by 10 percent, or 50,000 people, between 2009 and 2014 — something experts say has been key to Chicago’s recent population loss. “So much of the population growth in this region was based on legal and undocumented immigration. This closes the plug on the growth we’ve had,” said Rob Paral, a Chicago-based demographer who advises nonprofits and community groups. “Undocumented immigrants were a substantial piece of the picture, and that era is behind us.” In 2014, about 450,000 unauthorized immigrants lived in Illinois, compared with about 500,000 in 2009, according to a study released Tuesday by the Pew Research Center. While most states saw no significant change in their unauthorized immigrant populations during the five-year period, Illinois is among seven states that saw their populations decline, primarily due to a drop in the number of unauthorized immigrants from Mexico. The population of unauthorized Mexican immigrants has declined nationwide as well because of the sluggish U.S. economic recovery and stricter border enforcement. But the country’s overall count of unauthorized immigrants remained stable through 2014 due to a spike in unauthorized immigrants from Asia, Central America and sub-Saharan Africa, according to the report, which bases its findings on data collected by the U.S. Census Bureau.)

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
— So much spent by so few to accomplish so little – Dan Mihalopoulos  (DIERSEN: What do you spend your money on?  What do you spend your time on?  What do you accomplish?  I spend my money and 10+ hours each and every day of what is left of my life putting out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails free of charge and without any advertising. Those emails have gone out each and every morning since 2004, each and every evening since 2015, and they have included links to almost 245,400 articles and information on many upcoming events.)
http://chicago.suntimes.com/politics/mihalopoulos-so-much-spent-by-so-few-to-accomplish-so-little/
— DIERSEN HEADLINE: Because Democrats and RINOs have succeeded in making the future look so bad for Republicans, Democrats and RINOs question why Republicans still have babies.  Assuring a better life for their children, for their grand children, for their great grand children, etc. is the main reason why Republicans get involved in government and in politics.  If my wife and I had children, I would be working a thousand times harder than I do to promote the Republican Party platform, the Illinois Republican Party platform, and the Milton Township Republican Central Committee Resolution against video gambling.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Reporter contract talks rev up at Tronc’s suburban papers – LYNNE MAREK  (DIERSEN: My worthless critics/opponents, their worthless operatives, and their worthless dupes have always a) shouted that I am worthless because no one pays me for what I do as your GOPUSA Illinois Editor and b) shouted that my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails are worthless because I send them free of charge and without any advertising. In my defense, not that I need to defend myself, unlike many if not most of my worthless critics/opponents, and unlike virtually all their worthless operatives and worthless dupes, I am financially secure.  I can afford to spend the thousands of dollars and thousands of hours each year necessary to put together and send out GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails.  He who pays the piper calls the tunes.  I do not want anyone to call my tunes.  I am fortunate enough that I do not have ask anyone for money.  As everyone including Rich Miller knows, GOPUSA ILLINOIS email subscriptions are worth at least $1,000/year.)
http://www.chicagobusiness.com/article/20160920/NEWS06/160929982
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Sun-Times Media suburban reporters who began working out of cars and coffee shops in 2012 after their offices closed now have a chance to improve their lot at Tronc. They became part of Tronc in 2014 after its predecessor, Tribune Publishing, bought the suburban dailies and weeklies from the Sun-Times’ parent, Wrapports. Now, negotiations on a new contract for the 30 editorial employees represented by the Chicago News Guild are scheduled to start next week. It will be the first contract negotiated for the workers since they shifted from Chicago’s no. 2 newspaper operation to the city’s biggest. Tension is already building in advance of the expiration of the current contract at the end of the year. The union today posted a lengthy report of one Evanston Review reporter’s travails with management, and an unfair labor practice charge that was filed by the union last month with the National Labor Relations Board on his behalf. The union alleges the reporter was transferred from one suburban paper to another as retaliation for his complaining about a news story and exercising his contractual right to withhold his byline from the piece. “Within days of him asking to withhold his byline, he was transferred,” says Craig Rosenbaum, who is executive director of the union. Tronc spokeswoman Dana Meyer said it was not retaliation. “The company respects the collective agreement with Pioneer Press and has worked within the terms and conditions of that agreement,” she said in a statement. “There have been incidents where a reporter has asked to have their name removed and we consistently accommodate those requests. The agreement specifically identifies rules for transferring an employee and we adhere to these rules.”)

He fought type 1 diabetes from age 14. He was the first of his ancestors to earn a high school diploma.  He never attended college. He did not buy a new car until he was 45 years old in 1967 and it was a bottom of the line 2-door Chevy with almost no options.)

As questions swirled, Rauner refused to comment on the situation. The governor stuck by that strategy Monday despite the new, widely reported revelations from Sandack and Downers Grove police. “I really can’t comment on that. I don’t know all the facts on that,” Rauner told reporters after talking up the state’s advances in technology. Rauner was a lot more glowing when discussing the recent departure of another ally, state Sen. Matt Murphy, who joined a public affairs firm.)

http://www.wsiltv.com/story/33134345/donald-trump-jr-likens-syrian-refugees-to-poisoned-skittles
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump Jr. has posted a message on Twitter likening Syrian refugees to a bowl of poisoned Skittles. Seeking to promote his father’s presidential campaign, the younger Trump posted a tweet featuring a bowl of the candy Skittles with a warning. “If I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you, would you take a handful?” said the tweet on the verified @DonaldTrumpJr handle. “That’s our Syrian refugee problem,” said the post, which caused a stir and negative tweets on the internet into Tuesday. Young Trump’s tweet said, “This image says it all. Let’s end the politically correct agenda that doesn’t put America first.” His father has advocated sharply restraining immigration and has accused opponent Hillary Clinton of advocating acceptance of tens of thousands of refugees.)

GOPUSA
— BEYOND OUTRAGEOUS: McCain’s views on immigration depend on the language being used
http://www.gopusa.com/?p=14642
(FROM THE ARTICLE:  Arizona Sen. John McCain’s Spanish- and English-language websites differ on what they say about the Republican’s views on immigration and homeland security. McCain’s English-language campaign website touts his work to boost border security and “reform our broken immigration system,” and the Spanish-language site promotes the 80-year-old senator’s teaming with Democrats to “work on a humane migratory reform that is sensitive to the needs of the immigrant community.” The sites differ in other ways as well, with an endorsement on the Spanish-language site by the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and an endorsement by the American Conservative Union on the English-language site. The Spanish-language site was launched by campaign on Tuesday, a week after his Republican primary victory. McCain campaign spokeswoman Lorna Romero said the websites were “never intended to be identical.”)

http://money.cnn.com/2016/09/07/media/donald-trump-press-blacklist-over/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Donald Trump is ending a practice most journalists think he never should have started: his “blacklisting” of news outlets. Effective on Thursday, the Trump campaign says it will approve requests for press credentials from The Washington Post, BuzzFeed, Politico, and other news organizations that were previously blocked by Trump. A campaign spokeswoman confirmed the change on Wednesday. Trump provided a cheeky statement to CNN about the restoration of credentials: “I figure they can’t treat me any worse!” Leaders of some of the affected newsrooms were glad to hear of the change, but said it shouldn’t have been necessary at all. “Access to a major party’s presidential campaign events shouldn’t be a favor to be granted or withheld,” Politico editor Susan Glasser said. “It is important to remember that this was an absurd policy to begin with and a dangerous precedent for any campaign to have set,” Huffington Post senior politics editor Sam Stein said. Several Trump aides, including campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, had been lobbying behind the scenes for a loosening of the restrictions against the Post and other news organizations. Trump’s running mate Mike Pence said five weeks ago that he was looking into the issue. The so-called “blacklist” took hold last year, when the campaign denied press credential requests from The Huffington Post and the Des Moines Register. The Daily Beast, BuzzFeed and Politico’s credential requests were also rejected by the campaign. At various points Univision has also been blocked. Related: Here are the media outlets banned by Trump seemingly formalized the bans last June when he announced that he had revoked the Post’s credentials. In August he threatened to add The New York Times to the list, but did not follow through. In most cases, reporters from the offending outlets were still able to attend Trump rallies as members of the general public, but without the access and privileges that press credentials provide. Some journalists took it as a badge of honor. But the rejection of individual news outlets was troubling, some press freedom advocates said, because of possible chilling effects and precedents. Recognizing the media controversy, and perhaps relishing it, Trump said in June that if elected president, he would not ban news outlets from the White House press briefing room. Lately, the bans were getting harder to enforce. A new print “pool” covering Trump was established at the end of August, and it included several blacklisted outlets. The three print pool chairs — Time magazine’s Zeke Miller and The New York Times’s Maggie Haberman and Ashley Parker — argued that candidates shouldn’t be able to pick the members of the pool rotation, a source with knowledge of the matter said. Related: On Mexico trip, Trump leaves press stranded Separately, news outlets have also been pressing for greater access to Trump, citing the Clinton campaign’s decision to let some reporters travel on Clinton’s plane. Even with this week’s change, Trump is likely to continue attacking the media. His 15-month-long campaign has doubled as a campaign against the media. He routinely depicts news outlets and individual journalists as opponents.)

MONEY MAGAZINE
— Age Discrimination and Lost Income Are Hurting Older Workers – Reuters
http://time.com/money/4483741/age-discrimination-older-workers-retirement/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Age discrimination is illegal under the Age Discrimination in Employment Act of 1967. The law prohibits treating job applicants or employees who are over age 40 less favorably because of age. (The law applies to employers with 20 or more workers.) But most of the complaints filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission focus on age-bias terminations rather than hiring – simply because hiring discrimination is so difficult to prove. Yet two-thirds of older workers believe age discrimination occurs in the workplace, according to a 2013 survey by AARP. Older job seekers need much more time to find a job than older workers – 36 weeks in 2015, compared with 26 weeks for younger workers, SCEPA data shows. The evidence on discrimination A recent study by economists at the University of California at Irvine and Tulane University found strong evidence of age discrimination in hiring, particularly for older women. The researchers sent out 40,000 dummy job applications that included signals on the job-seekers’ ages, and then monitored the response rates. They measured callback rates for various occupations; workers age 49-51 applying for administrative positions had a callback rate 29 percent lower than younger workers, and it was 47 percent lower for workers over age 64. Other studies suggest that the long-term jobless rate for women over age 55 is several percentage points higher than it is for men. But older men are struggling too – especially white males with less education. This shows up in government numbers on job tenure, according to Teresa Ghilarducci, a labor economist and SCEPA’s director. From 2012 to 2014, median job tenure with a current employer for white males age 55 and older with less education (high school or less) decreased to 16.7 years from 17.7 years, while job tenure for all other groups rose. “The people who are losing the most are white, high school-educated men,” she said.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: During last year’s mayoral campaign, Mayor Rahm Emanuel dismissed opponent Jesus “Chuy” Garcia’s campaign pledge to hire 1,000 new cops as “fairy dust.”  So as Emanuel vaguely talked about the possibility of hiring “hundreds” of new officers, Garcia had a chuckle at the mayor’s expense. “For a candidate who said my 1,000 new cop plan was fairy dust, look who’s acting like Tinker Bell now,” Garcia said. Only time will tell, however, whether Emanuel will swirl in a cloud of pixie dust of his own making. At a Friday news conference, the mayor did not make clear whether he plans to just keep up with attrition, again move more cops from desks to beats or increase the overall authorized level of police staffing.)

Harvard and Stanford, by far – Becky Yerak  (DIERSEN: Do you have a degree from an Ivy League University?  I do not.  I worked for GAO 1980-1997.  When Charles Bowsher took over GAO in 1981 and ran it for the next 15 years, he focused on upgrading GAO’s employees, that is, he focused hiring, retaining, and promoting employees who had degrees from Ivy League universities.  Of course, needless-to-say, my degrees from NIU, Loyola, DePaul, and IIT became worthless in GAO’s eyes.)

ALTERNET
— 10 Subtle Signs You’re About to Get Canned  Employers use some underhanded tactics to get rid of even the best workers. – Cliff Weathers (DIERSEN: To get rid of its employees who were White, male, older, and/or non-veteran, on October 1, 1993, when I was 45 years old and I had 25 years of federal service, GAO “offered” a $25,000 buyout and early retirement to all its employees who had 25 years or more of federal service. GAO ended its $25,000 buyout “offer” 1 year later and ended its early retirement “offer” 4 years later.)
http://www.alternet.org/labor/10-subtle-signs-youre-about-get-canned
(FROM THE ARTICLE: If the company’s goal is to rid itself of its long-term employees, it’s not stopping there. Buyouts are the first step in a larger workplace purge and unfailingly precede targeted firings. Even if company makes their buyout quota, any employee that meets its criteria remains a target for dismissal. So, if you qualify for a buyout that is offered by your company, you may want to consider taking it, according to financial adviser Roger Wohlner. It’s probably the best offer you’re going to get. “If your company has identified you as somebody who might be a good candidate for a buyout offer this generally means you are on their list,” writes Wohlner. “I’ve invariably seen folks who have turned down the first offer finding themselves out of a job within a year or so.”)
