Bringing Jobs Back to U.S. Is Bruising Task – WSJ

Oh how I wish the majority of youth would attend technical or vocational college instead of 4 years liberal arts crap….

 

Chesapeake Bay’s other big miscalculation only became clear once the plant opened, says Ms. Xu. “Our biggest problem is the employment issue,” she says. Chesapeake struggled with high turnover in the early days and has continued to have difficulty finding workers with the skills needed to run machinery.

“We have people struggling with math,” she says. “Not middle-school math, elementary-school math. And this includes the supervisors—not just the line workers.”

Finding employees with a good work ethic is also a problem. There have been instances, she says, where the plant announced drug tests would be held the following day and up to 20% of workers didn’t show up. The company screens workers for drugs when they are hired.

Good article, this part is the best!

 

Joe Rogan: I don’t know. I don’t like working for people. I don’t like having a schedule, especially as I get older and I start to realize that there’s a lot of imposed ideas about what you’re supposed to do with life that we’ve all sort of accepted. As I’ve gotten older I’ve started to challenge those ideas more and more. There’s a bunch of those ideas I’d like to move away from as I get older.

Watchlist 6-18-2014 – $NWBO, $ACHN, $GIGA, $NFEC

Trying to come up with a better way to keep track of watches over time. Plus keep a reference to go back to. I like the way the blog keeps everything serialized, but trying to reference back to a post with a bunch of charts is inefficient for me. So for now I’m going to experiment with the google sheets method. I used to do this years ago and just kind of got out of the habit.

I also want for my own use a quick way to check the news, see the price and pull up a chart. This crude version supports those three feature requests. As a reader let me know if you find this more or less useful than a post with a basket of charts.
