U.S. Department of Agriculture announced that it is allowing an additional two hundred short tons of cane sugar imports to meet food manufacturers increasing demand for non genetically modified sugar products.
For America’s working moms, there is pretty much an endless stream of resources to guide and comfort them on how to tell the boss they’re pregnant, how to find a private place to pump at work, how to negotiate flex time, how to split the chores at home, and whether or not to display pictures of their kids at the office. They can read all day and all night about the many stresses of working motherhood including pregnancy discrimination, the wage gap, the mommy wars, leaning in, and opting out. But for America’s working daughters, there is little to help them navigate between their careers and the needs of their aging parents.
There are currently 44 million unpaid eldercare providers in the United States according to the U.S. Census Bureau and the majority are women. And yet there are very few support programs, formal or informal, in place to support these family caregivers, many of whom are struggling at work and at home. Working daughters often find they need to switch to a less demanding job, take time off, or quit work altogether in order to make time for their caregiving duties. As a result, they suffer loss of wages and risk losing job-related benefits such as health insurance, retirement savings, and Social Security benefits. In fact, a study from MetLife and the National Alliance for Caregiving calculated women lose an average $324,044 in compensation due to caregiving.
CVS Pharmacy announced the company will launch digital receipts as a new option for all members of its ExtraCare Rewards program. The new option will roll out in early June and eventually be available in 7,900 retail locations.
For employers big and small, the need to support workers who also provide unpaid care for a family member is a growing reality. Most family caregivers today — or an estimated 23.9 million workers — work at a paying job on top of their caregiving responsibilities. Yet today, care for a relative with a serious illness or disability takes place in a very different world from that of our grandparents’ generation. To start, the role of family caregivers has greatly …

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the death of Haing Ngor, the first Asian male actor ever to win an Academy Award for a supporting performance and debut performance. :Ngor portrayed journalist Dith Pran in the 1984 movie, The Killing Fields. The movie detailed the roles of Pran and fellow journalist Sydney Schanberg played in bringing the horrors of the Cambodian genocide to the world and later efforts to locate Pran who disappeared after being taken prisoner by the Khmer Rouge.Ngor was murdered by three members of the “Oriental Lazy Boyz” street gang who said they killed him in a robbery. Others to this day are convinced the murder was politically motivated carried out by sympathizers of the Khmer Rouge.Ngor himself survived The Killing Fields in real life and his wife lost her life to the Khmer Rouge.
HO CHI MINH CITY, May 25 - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry on Wednesday launched Vietnam's first privately funded university in what he said marked the next stage of an evolving relationship between the United States and Vietnam.The Harvard-affiliated Fulbright University in Ho Chi Minh City, the country's commercial center, will be the first independent, non-profit university in Vietnam, the White House said in a statement.The launch comes at the end of a three-day visit to Vietnam by U.S. President Barack Obama, part of his administration's "pivot" to Asia that emphasizes the importance of the fast-growing region to the United States."The war is an indelible but increasingly distant memory, and for most it is not a memory at all," said Kerry, who served as a young U.S. naval offer in the American war in Vietnam, which killed hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese and 58,000 U.S. troops."Certainly, the students who are going to enroll in this university are far more interested in plugging into the world economy than being stuck in the past.""That reality is clearly reflected in the changing relationship between Vietnam and the United States that we saw even changing over the course of the three-and-a-half days," he added.The university will be chaired by Bob Kerrey, a former Nebraska senator and veteran of the war in Vietnam who lost his leg during combat.Obama is the third U.S. president to visit Vietnam since the former enemies restored diplomatic relations in 1995.
Nearly 10 million adult children over the age of 50 care for their aging parents. These family caregivers are themselves aging as well as providing care at a time when they also need to be planning and saving for their own retirement. The study is an updated, national look at adult children who work and care for their parents and the impact of caregiving on their earnings and lifetime wealth.
Legal actions against employers over eldercare have jumped by 650%.
Amid a groundswell of support for paid family leave programs, it’s worth noting that, at lots of companies, even unpaid leave hasn’t caught on yet.
Despite a patchwork of federal, state, and local laws designed to protect caregivers from being fired, demoted, or otherwise penalized at work, plenty of employees find that taking unpaid time off — or even asking for other kinds of flexibility — is still risky. So, according to a new analysis by the Center for WorkLife Law at the University of California’s Hastings law school, many more of them are suing. Record numbers are winning, too.
Between 1998 and 2012, federal employment discrimination cases declined overall. But not employee lawsuits over family-leave discrimination: They shot up 590%. In the past 10 years, although the largest category of claims (67%) was about pregnancy discrimination, the fastest-growing type — up 650% — was brought by employees who were taking care of elderly relatives. Nor is this a “women’s issue.” Well over a third (39%) of those eldercare actions were brought by men, who also filed 336% more paternity-leave lawsuits than in the decade before.
For employers, this gets expensive. Plaintiffs have been winning cases about 70% of the time, the study says, or more than twice as often as they prevail in other kinds of employment suits. Altogether, litigation over what the study calls “FRD,” for family responsibilities discrimination, has cost employers almost half a billion dollars ($477,009,417) between 2006 and 2015, more than double what it cost in the previous decade. And that’s a conservative estimate, because it doesn’t include the cost of confidential out-of-court settlements.
