Learning to be flexible and to pivot quickly has helped O’Brien achieve great success as a reporter and entrepreneur.


In the three decades I’ve been advocating for small businesses, there’s never been a more challenging time for them and for the self-employed. And we’re far from out of the woods as this pandemic is not yet under control, and the economy is likely to take a long time to recover.

We’ve seen how President Donald Trump and his administration have responded to this crisis, but what would an administration headed by Joe Biden and Kamala Harris look like for small business and the self-employed?

“Day one, the focus is getting the coronavirus under control,” said Rhett Buttle, Biden for President National Business Advisor. “One in six small businesses are probably not coming back,

What is the Liveable Income Guarantee, and how could it affect you?

The economic crises that have punctuated the 21st century, most notably the global financial crisis and the Covid-19 crisis, have led to a growing realisation that alternatives to our present system are possible and perhaps inevitable.

In particular, there has been an erosion of the belief that the economy is able to provide a decent income to everyone who wants to work.

A number of proposals have been put forward in the wake of this realisation, among them

  • universal basic income, which would unconditionally provide every resident (children and adults) with a regular subsistence wage

  • a job guarantee in which the government would provide real jobs, at the minimum wage, to all unemployed Australians

Many seem utopian, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing – it’s good to look beyond the day-to-day to consider how things could be done differently.

In a new Australian National University Policy Brief we propose something

‘New US visa restrictions will affect students, education establishment’

Washington [US], September 26 (ANI/Sputnik): The new US visa regulations proposed by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) will affect foreign students in the United States as well as the country’s education establishment, National Capital Legal Services founder Elizabeth Krukova told Sputnik.
On September 24, the DHS announced an initiative to limit visas for foreign students in the United States to two and four years. The initiative also calls for restricting the duration of visas issued to foreign journalists to 240 days with an opportunity to obtain an extension of up to 240 days.
Krukova said the DHS regulation is a very effective tool to force graduates to leave the United States.
“The global effect of this is: educated graduates would be very limited in opportunities to legalise, stay or become employable,” Krukova said.
Meanwhile, the education establishment would lose significant revenue from international students, which would add to the

For every hour you would usually be employed but are off, the UK government will pay a third of your pay, which your employer will match.

What is the job support scheme?

From 1 November, the furlough scheme will end and the job support scheme will come into effect. From that date if your employer only wants you in part-time you can get paid for some of the time you would normally be working but aren’t currently needed.

How California’s wildfires might affect small businesses

Michael Volpatt already knew what art, medicine and clothes he needed to take when he got an alert to evacuate his home west of Guerneville in Sonoma County ahead of the massive LNU Complex Fire. But there was one more decision to make — should he go to his store, Big Bottom Market, and try to prepare it for what could be a weeks-long evacuation?

“It’s a big decision to have to make because you don’t know what’s going to happen,” he said. “Is your building going to burn down? Is it going to matter? Is the electricity going to go out and all your food spoil?”

Volpatt decided it wasn’t worth the risk and left the store to its fate. The power held and most of the products in his shop, best known for its Oprah-approved biscuits, survived. But the 10-day evacuation and an unusually early and ferocious start

Migrant laborers in Md. worry coronavirus could affect visa status

“Why me?” asked Garcia, 65, who makes between $10 and $11 an hour helping set up equipment for mask-wearing colleagues as they crack shells with tiny knives and pile the meat into plastic containers. “I didn’t ask to get sick.”

About 50 crab pickers tested positive in July, Dorchester County Health Department spokeswoman Angela Grove said in response to questions from the Baltimore Sun.

There were outbreaks — defined as five or more cases in a two-week period — at two plants, said Grove, who declined to identify the facilities.

No one died, and one person was treated in a hospital, she said.

But advocates for migrant workers remain concerned about the safety of the laborers, mostly women, who typically stay in Maryland until November.

In most summers, there are as many as 500 in Dorchester, many clustered on a remote string of three islands collectively known as Hoopers.
