Tennessee State Senator Sara Kyle’s “Ban the Box” Bill Passes Senate Vote

 

Legislation would eliminate felony question from initial state job applications

Tennessee Senate Democratic CaucusNashville, TN – Tennessee State Senator Sara Kyle’s legislation to eliminate the check box that asks about prior felonies from state job applications passed the state Senate with a 25-7 vote.

“We want ex-offenders who have paid their debt to society to find a job and get back to work,” state Senator Sara Kyle said. “But too often, the stain of a prior felony conviction is an automatic rejection, and many don’t bother to apply. This legislation gives everyone a fair chance to make an impression and land the job that could support a family.”

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of March 6th, 2016

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Nonfarm payrolls rose more than expected in February, while figures for the two previous months were revised higher. At 228,000, the three-month average has remained strong. The unemployment rate held steady at 4.9%, but labor force participation continued to pick up and the employment/population ratio is trending higher.

Hours fell, likely reflecting bad weather (weakness in hours was concentrated in mining, which includes energy exploration, and construction). Average hourly earnings fell 0.1% (following a 0.5% rise in January), bringing the year-over-year gain down to 2.2% (from 2.5%), but the three-month average was up nearly 2.5% y/y.

Kris Wolfe: She Was Just a Receptionist

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Recently, my husband and I attended a conference for motorcycle dealers from all over the country. It was a 2-day event, held in a hotel with meals and speaking/training carefully coordinated.

I met the lady who did all of the planning on the way into the opening dinner and then happened to be seated next to her. Everyone was introducing themselves and their lofty titles with the company, so I asked her, “What is your official title?” She said, “Oh I’m just a receptionist. I’m no one important.”

What?

Just a receptionist? But being important is not the same as looking important. And being important has a lot more to do with who we are than who we appear to be.
