The Retired Investor: Want equality? Start With Better Jobs
By Bill Schmick,
05:08PM / Thursday, June 10, 2021
Jobs. They are the primary focus of the Federal Reserve Bank, the Biden administration, the Republican opposition, and most U.S. corporations. Supposedly, with all this high-powered attention, we still can't find enough workers to fill all the positions available. Has anyone questioned why?   One important reason might be that 60 percent of jobs in the U.S. are considered "mediocre" or "of poor quality," according to a recent Gallup survey. If you combine those findings with the fact that many workers in the service economy are poorly compensated, the problem begins to come into clearer focus.   If you listen to the free market critics, generous Federal

Williamstown Town Meeting: Yes, You Cannabis
By Stephen Dravis, iBerkshires Staff
09:51PM / Wednesday, June 09, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — After passing two amendments to address concerns raised by critics, town meeting Wednesday overwhelmingly passed a bylaw amendment that establishes new rules for cannabis cultivation in the town.   By a vote of 228-49, the meeting passed the bylaw proposed by the town's Planning Board after overwhelmingly approving two amendments that the Planning Board chose not to oppose.   The amendment needed a two-thirds supermajority vote for passage. In this case, the threshold would have been 186 votes, well below the 228 that it received.   Although the final tally was a landslide, the issue, as expected, drew most of the discussion at the meeting,
