Who's who after Brexit?

Britain’s social care sector is not happy with the government’s immigration plan. The new rules for prospective migrants, with a tough points-based system to navigate, are likely to reduce the number of workers available to look after the elderly and vulnerable at relatively low cost.Quartz

“Absolute disaster”: The UK’s social care sector reacts to the post-Brexit immigration system

Europe is the region of the world with the fastest-aging population, and it needs social care workers to look after this growing sector of the population. But the UK's new, post-Brexit immigration plan strips the sector from a major recruitment pool: Unskilled workers from the EU. The plan, which was

Europe is the region of the world with the fastest-aging population, and it needs social care workers to look after this growing sector of the population. But the UK's new, post-Brexit immigration plan strips the sector from a major recruitment pool: Unskilled workers from the EU. The plan, which was released today, will award points to applicants based on their professional and academic qualifications, skills, and job prospects in the UK. With no job offer on the ground or PhD in a STEM skill, it's highly unlikely that an applicant would get a visa to work in the UK after Dec. 31. In my piece, I talk to representatives of the social care sector what this will mean for them.

The latest threat to Roe v. Wade

More than 200 lawmakers are urging the Supreme Court to overrule Roe v. Wade. Nearly half a century after a woman's right to bodily privacy was recognized by the high court, American politicians are chosing sides ahead of upcoming test of the landmark decision.Quartz

207 lawmakers urge the Supreme Court to overrule a half century of abortion law

Next month, the US Supreme Court will hear arguments in what should be an open and shut case. The matter out of Louisiana resembles a similar dispute over a Texas statute that was already ruled unconstitutional.

Many people believe the new case was brought to the 2020 bench by design, to test the junior

Next month, the US Supreme Court will hear arguments in what should be an open and shut case. The matter out of Louisiana resembles a similar dispute over a Texas statute that was already ruled unconstitutional.

Many people believe the new case was brought to the 2020 bench by design, to test the junior justices appointed by Donald Trump. Pro-life activists hope to see the court's abortion precedent overruled. Court commentators see that possibility but some wonder if the justices will really fall into the activists' trap.

The purpose of B Corps

B Corps are meant to exemplify one idea: That we need to transform the way capitalism works in order to save the world. A growing number of corporations are signing on, from Patagonia to Danone. Quartz’s Cassie Werber reports on why B Corps are gaining momentum—and on the limitations that make them imperfect vehicles for social change. ✦Quartz

B corporations are pushing to change the way the world works

In a recent (2019) Harris Poll we conducted among American Millennials and Gen Z found that 72% said they’d work for less money at a company whose values aligned with theirs. B Corps may be small in number now, but their influence could be outsized in setting new standards for expectations among young

In a recent (2019) Harris Poll we conducted among American Millennials and Gen Z found that 72% said they’d work for less money at a company whose values aligned with theirs. B Corps may be small in number now, but their influence could be outsized in setting new standards for expectations among young talent, for whom a strong market provides them leverage to do, not just say. Great read.

A long read, but the goals are laudable. I would hope to work with companies that looked at the long term view. It impacts the talent and type of investors you attract

Capitalism at a crossroads: today's millennial workforce are not as blindly obedient to the system as their parents were, and they're demanding that their jobs are about more than making money. I can only imagine that Gen Z's consumer habits are going to reinforce the work that B-Corps are doing now.

Excellent thorough and balanced piece 👏🏻 Rangan’s point about the need for education is the most important take-away. If we want to transform our economy, we have to learn what it could look like and how to work, collaborate, manage, and lead to get there. Strickler’s Bentoism is a perfect example

Excellent thorough and balanced piece 👏🏻 Rangan’s point about the need for education is the most important take-away. If we want to transform our economy, we have to learn what it could look like and how to work, collaborate, manage, and lead to get there. Strickler’s Bentoism is a perfect example of a tool to help people contribute to a healthier, more equitable and sustainable version of capitalism.
