Rep. @AyannaPressley grills chair powell'>Fed Chair Powell on women, especially Black women, losing their jobs in the last year: ‘How does the undercounting of unemployment prevent us from achieving an equitable economic recovery?’
If the decision had to be made TODAY, who would you prefer to see as the next chair'>Fed Chair?
"We will be communicating as clearly as possible and as far in advance as possible how we perceive the path of progress toward those goals," chair powell'>Fed Chair Powell says. The Fed wants to see actual progress, not forecasted progress, he adds.
Chair Powell, do you see your policies as contributing to the huge disparity between Main Street and Wall Street? Yes, of course, I'm not an idiot - but I have to deny it. Why? Well, people might try to rein us in. My time is up.
Fantastic to chair the APPG Hairdressing, Barbering & Cosmetology today with guest speaker Shadow Chancellor@AnnelieseDodds Great discussion and Q&A with members & Keith Conniford@haircouncil #MandatoryRegistration
McConnell is threatening to filibuster the Organizing Resolution which allows Democrats to assume the committee Chair positions. It’s an absolutely unprecedented, wacky, counterproductive request. We won the Senate. We get the gavels.
Jeff Bezos will step down as CEO of Amazon and transition to exec. board chair later this year. He made $90 billion last year during the pandemic while: ◾️He cut hazard pay in June ◾️He fired workers for trying to unionize ◾️At least 20,000 workers tested positive for #COVID19
Jeff Bezos did not "quit". He is becoming the Executive Chair of the Amazon Board. He will be even more powerful while avoiding the media scrutiny. More power. Less accountability.
George Stinney Jr. He was fourteen. Three months after being arrested, he was executed on this day in 1944. They used a bible as a booster seat when they sat him in the electric chair. Seventy years later, he was exonerated for the murder of 2 white girls.
