https://www.forbes.com/sites/johnmauldin/2019/12/02/americas-full-employment-hides-a-dirty-secret/#9c6e22d7c157
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Should just being “employed” make people/workers happy? On one level, any job is better than no job. But we also derive much of our identities and self-esteem from our work. If you aren’t happy with it, you’re probably not happy generally. Unhappy people can still vote and are often easy marks for shameless politicians to manipulate. Their spending patterns change, too. So it ends up affecting everyone and everything. Unhappy Employment There’s this plight of people who, while not necessarily poor, aren’t where they think they should be—and perhaps once were. This disappointment isn’t just in their minds; the economy really has changed. Yes, you can probably get a job if you are physically able, but the odds it will support you and a family, if you have one, are lower than they once were.)

CHICAGO TRIBUNE
— U.S. Rep. Sean Casten backs Trump impeachment inquiry, sparking campaign issue in once strongly Republican district – RICK PEARSON
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-sean-casten-donald-trump-impeachment-20190620-cle5i6byj5cjlkxb3pegoc3tpu-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Casten was one of two Democrats to flip traditionally Republican seats in 2018, defeating six-term Republican U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam of Wheaton 54 percent to 46 percent, a margin of 22,556 votes out of more than 315,000 ballots cast in the 6th Congressional District. The district includes what once was the heart of suburban Republicanism. But GOP support in DuPage County has been gradually eroding — in 2016 a majority of DuPage voters backed Democrat Hillary Clinton for president, and in 2018 they supported Democrat J.B. Pritzker for governor. Casten becomes the third House Democrat from a competitive district to back an impeachment inquiry in recent days, joining U.S. Reps. Katie Porter of California and Tom Malinowski of New Jersey. They are among 44 legislators the DCCC says represent districts that are key to maintaining a House majority in 2020. U.S. Rep. Lauren Underwood of Naperville, the other Democrat who flipped an Illinois suburban seat in 2018 by defeating Republican U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren of Plano, has supported the House leadership efforts to further investigations into Trump in lieu of opening impeachment proceedings.)

— ‘Recovery-friendly’ workplaces welcome those with imperfect records – Lenny Bernstein (DIERSEN: 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.

https://www.dailyherald.com/business/20181202/recovery-friendly-workplaces-welcome-those-with-imperfect-records
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The company is one of 70 employers in the state that are casting themselves as “recovery friendly,” a wide-ranging term that signifies a new approach to the millions of people whose lives have been interrupted by drug and alcohol addiction. These workplaces are willing to overlook employment gaps and some brushes with police that accompany drug use. They encourage open discussion of addiction in the workplace to reduce stigma. Perhaps most significantly, they treat substance abuse and relapse as medical issues like surgery or maternity — a time for the company to support, not abandon, the employee.)

NEW YORK TIMES
— Despite Big House Losses, G.O.P. Shows No Signs of Course Correction – Jonathan Martin
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/12/02/us/politics/republicans-midterms-house-losses.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With a brutal finality, the extent of the Republicans’ collapse in the House came into focus last week as more races slipped away from them and their losses neared 40 seats. Yet nearly a month after the election, there has been little self-examination among Republicans about why a midterm that had seemed at least competitive became a rout. President Trump has brushed aside questions about the loss of the chamber entirely, ridiculing losing incumbents by name, while continuing to demand Congress fund a border wall despite his party losing many of their most diverse districts. Unlike their Democratic counterparts, Republicans swiftly elevated their existing slate of leaders with little debate, signaling a continuation of their existing political strategy. And neither Speaker Paul D. Ryan nor Representative Kevin McCarthy, the incoming minority leader, have stepped forward to confront why the party’s once-loyal base of suburban supporters abandoned it — and what can be done to win them back.)
