— GOP schemes in Wisconsin, Michigan go against will of the people – Editorial (DIERSEN: What do Democrats say that the “will of the people” is in your precinct, in your municipality, in your township/ward, in your county, in Illinois, in America, and in the world? From what I see, Democrats say it is to get rid of Trump once and for all, as well as those individuals, organizations, companies, governments, and countries that are Trump supporters, Protestant, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, White, male, older, rich, gun owners, German American, draft avoiders, and those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time.)

DAILY HERALD
— Here’s what individual teachers would get under Geneva school board’s offer – Susan Sarkauskas (DIERSEN: Federal employees do not get pay increases for earning job-related degrees, job-related professional certifications, or job-related professional licenses. I worked for the federal government 1966-1969 and 1971-1997. I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970 and job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, b) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and c) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)
https://www.dailyherald.com/news/20181206/heres-what-individual-teachers-would-get-under-geneva-school-boards-offer

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The report lists certified personnel from A to Z. It shows their current salaries, years with the district (“step”) and graduate-level education (“lane”). It also shows what they would be paid as their experience increases over the four years of the proposed contract. For some, it also includes a pay increase because of additional graduate education. According to the district’s calculations, individual teachers’ pay would increase, in four years, by as little as 6.56 percent to up to 44.71 percent for one individual. Actual dollar increases per person range from $4,044 over those four years to $28,796. The first figure is for a teacher who is on step 17 and does not have any graduate credits. The latter is for a teacher who is on step 16 with a master’s degree but who has now attained either a doctorate or a second master’s degree.)

They do not want me a) to know about their events and other activities, b) to promote their events and other activities, c) to attend their events, and d) to report on their events and other activities. They read my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails to get information to use against me.)

FORBES
— For IBM, Reskilling The Workforce For AI Takes On A New Urgency – Joe McKendrick (DIERSEN: Have you ever reskilled yourself? I have. In 1992, when I was 43 years old, after my Democrat GAO superiors had made it clear that they would never again assign me to audits of IRS, after they had assigned me to audits of federal financial institution regulators, I began taking graduate courses at IIT, and in 1997, when I was 48 years old, I earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT.)

— Why Employers Should Support The Expansion Of Social Security – Nancy Altman (DIERSEN: All my critics/opponents, all their operatives, and all their dupes promote age discrimination a) because they want to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) because they want to curry favor with those who promote age discrimination.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/nancyaltman/2018/12/06/why-employers-should-support-the-expansion-of-social-security/#6e693f784be5
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The nation is facing a looming retirement income crisis where workers will be unable to retire and maintain their standards of living. Age discrimination laws properly prohibit employers from firing older workers simply because of their age. An expanded Social Security will provide those older workers with greater opportunity to enjoy some leisure after a lifetime of work. It will also lower employer costs, since older workers are often the most expensive, and allow younger workers to move forward in their careers. Moreover, retirees are consumers. As they age, they tend to stop saving and start spending what savings they were able to accumulate during their working years. The goods and services they purchase are essential for a strong economy. A report published a half-decade ago found that Social Security’s combined payments in 2012 resulted in the production of approximately $1.4 trillion in economic output, the creation of over 9.2 million jobs, and an increase in the tax revenues of local, state, and federal governments that exceeded $222 billion. And that was a half-decade ago. Those positive effects are substantially larger today. And an expanded Social Security would produce even greater returns.)
