Model shows that Covid-19 can stay under control inside your company only if social distancing, PPE, and other measures are implemented for employees not working from home. These measures will also protect your net profit.
Many refugees in the United States move to a different state soon after arrival, according to a new dataset on nearly 450,000 people who were resettled between 2000 and 2014. And when they move, they are primarily looking for better job markets and helpful social networks of others from their home country -- not more generous welfare benefits. These findings counter the stereotype that refugees are destined to become a drain on state resources over the long run.
Seafood is the most highly traded food commodity globally, with tropical zone marine fisheries contributing more than 50% of the global fish catch, an average of $USD 96 billion annually. Available scientific evidence consistently shows that tropical marine habitats, fish stocks and fisheries are most vulnerable to oceanic changes associated with climate change. However, telecoupling, or linkages between distant human-natural systems, could generate cascades of climate change impacts from the tropics that propagate to other 'extra-' tropical natural systems and human communities globally.
A new study in Review of Economic Studies suggests that a large increase in the stock of immigrants to the United States would have little impact on the wages of native US citizens. Allowing for more high-skill immigration could be detrimental to some highly skilled workers in the country, but disproportionately beneficial to low skilled workers.
A study shows female physicians have more equitable income when they work in practices with more doctors who are women. The analysis shows a 12 percent relative difference in income for practices with equal numbers of female and male physicians, compared with a 20 percent income difference in practices dominated by men. The findings offer important evidence that workplace diversity can help reduce earnings gaps, other inequities.
The introduction of a master's degree loan scheme in England "substantially" broadened the socioeconomic class of people able to further their higher education.
Companies that practice corporate social responsibility (CSR) could ensure more positive outcomes by tackling "real change on the ground" rather than focusing on single projects and budgets, according to Simon Fraser University political science professor Andy Hira.
A new study out of Colorado State University has found that physical stress in one's job may be associated with faster brain aging and poorer memory.
Requirements for consumers to wear masks at public places like retail stores and restaurants are very similar to smoking bans, according to three university experts. In a paper published today (July 16, 2020) in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, the professors say mask requirements to stop the spread of COVID-19 should be considered "fundamental occupational health protections" for workers at stores, restaurants and other public places.
The COVID-19 pandemic is having a disproportionate, negative impact on the careers of scientists with young children at home, a new survey finds. They have been forced to drastically reduce the amount of time they spend on their research, which could have long-term effects on their careers and could exacerbate existing inequalities.
