In another immigration loss for the Trump administration, a federal judge in New Jersey granted a business group a preliminary injunction to block the Department of Labor (DOL) from implementing its H-1B wage rule. An analysis found the wage rule, issued in October, would have required employers to boost H-1B visa holders’ wages by 40% to 50%, well above the market wage for similar U.S. workers.

Did you know that hundreds of millions of dollars are taken from the state budget every year to benefit a few businesses? Funds that could support the important priorities of all Michigan residents, like infrastructure and education, and broadly help all businesses and residents in this challenging environment are instead gobbled up by a handful of corporations as a result of handout programs approved by our elected state representatives. It’s wrong and it shouldn’t continue.

Dec 4 (Reuters) – Gold prices firmed on Friday, set for
their first weekly gain in four, as growing optimism over a U.S.
fiscal stimulus deal pressured the dollar and boosted the
metal’s appeal as an inflation hedge.
