With fewer Americans out of work, there is more money in shoppers' wallets this holiday season, but a tighter labor market isn't an all-around win for the industry. As retailers from Toys R Us to Target kick off their seasonal recruiting efforts, they're competing for a smaller pool of candidates. The U.S. unemployment rate fell to 4.9 percent in August, down from 5.1 percent a year prior. The retail trade has accounted for a chunk of hiring over the past 12 months, with some 15,968,000 people working in the industry. That's up nearly 2 percent from a year ago. At the same time, preliminary government data show that slightly more retail jobs were unfilled in July than a year earlier. click Read More below for more of the story
Keith Richards has guest edited this month’s issue of Bauer Media’s monthly music bible, MOJO magazine.
It is the first time the legendary rocker has guest edited a UK magazine.
Excited by the opportunity, Keith commented: “It’s been a real privilege to be MOJO’s Guest Editor, thanks you guys. What a great idea. I’ve really enjoyed it. Good luck to the next editor! I seem to have left the office in an awful mess. But it was real fun. I’ve always loved MOJO, it’s always been a straight-up chat with you guys. That’s what I admire. It’s been a pleasure.”
Editor John Mulvey added: “It isn’t often that an editor can be excited about losing their job, but I’m honoured to hand over the MOJO reins this month to Keith Richards. As well as one of the greatest musicians Britain has ever produced, Keith is a passionate scholar of rock, a man of significant wealth and taste. He’s brought a deep love and knowledge of rock’n’roll, the blues, reggae, funk and much more to this very special issue of our magazine; MOJO couldn’t have been put in safer hands.”
