YW Blogcast 65 - Unemployment, Wage Growth, and Making Ends Meet

Not long ago, we worried a lot about the lack of jobs. We talked about rising unemployment rates and worried about students graduating into an economy that had absolutely no jobs to offer. We saw individuals with years of work experience and advanced degrees getting laid off, struggling to find any work. The problem we seem to be facing now is similar–still troublesome, still limiting. Now we’re left wondering where exactly the wages are. We’ve got the jobs–the labor market is approaching full employment–but wages remain the same. Logically, an increase in the number of jobs should put more pressure on wages, which would then rise. The unemployment rate is below six percent, which is a huge improvement. Unfortunately, earnings growth is nonexistent.It’s a strange occurrence, leading many to question why exactly that’s happening. Place When employment studies come out, they’re spread across an entire population. They mean that “overall” employment rates are higher. So what ...

YW Blogcast 64 - How to Be Your Own Boss

The millennial generation is known for a lot of things–tech savviness, high student loan debt, a reluctance to spend forty plus hours a week in a windowless cubicle working for a boss you don’t particularly care for. The millennials and the generations to follow have the entrepreneurial bug and it shows no signs of disappearing. There’s this idea that working for yourself is the way to go, and ultimately it’s not a bad one. By taking charge of your strengths and interests, you’re responsible for your own future–your own wealth. In a still struggling job market, the idea of being your own boss can be an appealing one. What many fail to recognize is the responsibility, time, and dedication that such an undertaking requires. If you’re considering starting a business, you’ll need to be a good boss–but first you’ll need to be a good employee. There are a lot of other things you’ll need to be, too–and here’s a look at some of them. To the responsible go the spoils Sure, it ma...

YW Blogcast 63 - The Sun Also Rises: Solar Power

There’s a lot of talk about the rising cost of energy, and you’ve probably heard discussions about solar power. Perhaps you’ve seen solar panels or billboards advocating for one side or the other. But what exactly is solar power? Simply, it’s the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Concentrated solar power systems rely on lenses and mirrors to narrow sunlight into a small beam, while Photovoltaics convert light into electric current–and both work to produce solar power. While there are still a few things to figure out in the area of solar power, we do know that the cost is falling and the potential for low-carbon energy is increasing. A brief history Commercial concentrated solar plants appeared for the first time in the 1980s. Currently the largest solar power plant finds its home in the Mojave Desert, where there’s plenty of sun. Spain, India, and the United States all have a variety of solar power plants producing at relatively large volumes. In the 1860s, development ...
