“And this is the real news: Everyone is entitled to it—no matter the size of your workplace, no matter whether you have a full-time or part-time position. As soon as you’ve been an employee for at least six months, this time is yours (and your partner’s) to take. Better yet, the new law ensures that your job will be there when you get back. Until now, only workers who have met certain requirements at companies that employ more than 50 people have been given that protection. Thanks to this bill, that’s one less crisis for new moms and dads to worry about.”

Legalize it, sure, but if we do not address the huge racial disparities at the heart of the matter, the barrier between those who are allowed to open up pot shops and profit 1000% and those who are arrested for using the same drug that their white counterparts freely use, the issue is pretty much moot

‘made in america’

Washington Post: The White House sent three long-delayed trade agreements to Congress on Monday, putting the deals with South Korea, Colombia and Panama on a path toward final passage after years of political limbo.

In a statement, President Barack Obama said the deals would make it easier for U.S. companies to sell their products overseas, and he called on Congress to approve the agreements without delay.

“These agreements will support tens of thousands of jobs across the country for workers making products stamped with three proud words: Made in America,” he said.

Reuters: Manufacturing grew more quickly in September as production and hiring increased, suggesting that factories would help keep the economy from slipping into a new recession.

Other data on Monday offered more good news for the struggling U.S. recovery, with strong demand for new motor vehicles putting sales on an upward track and construction spending unexpectedly rebounding in August.

“That hardly sounds like an economy flat on its back. The economy is still moving forward. But no one should confuse direction with speed,” said Joel Naroff, chief economist at Naroff Economic Advisors….

The factory sector has shouldered the broader economic recovery, with September marking a 26th straight month of expansion, and the manufacturing report implied an outright contraction in output would probably be avoided.

 Reuters: U.S. auto sales rose almost 10 percent in September, allaying concerns of a double-dip recession as major automakers forecast stronger sales through the remainder of the year.

Among the Detroit automakers, General Motors Co sales rose 20 percent, while those at Ford Motor Co and Chrysler group were up 9 percent and 27 percent, respectively.

Industry wide auto sales rose 9.9 percent in September from a year earlier. The annualized sales rate hit 13.1 million vehicles, the strongest sales rate since April.
