CHICAGO (WLS) —
Salesforce said Friday 1,000 new tech jobs will be available in Chicago over the next five years.
The software company announced the major expansion at a press conference with Mayor Rahm Emanuel late Friday morning.
Officials said they are leasing 500,000 square-feet in the un-built third tower of the Wolf Point Development along the Chicago River. The company’s goal is to be completely moved in by 2023.
Salesforce is based in San Francisco, but its new Chicago location will become its regional headquarters.

GM has come under harsh criticism from lawmakers from both major political parties, and from President Donald Trump, since Monday when it announced the biggest restructuring for the U.S. No. 1 carmaker since its bankruptcy a decade ago.
Barra is expected to meet with lawmakers from Michigan and Ohio, where GM plans to shutter three plants, as well asRead More

Let the “trusty spreadsheet guy” admit this: economic data is not perfect.
Between the challenge to serve our need to know what’s happening RIGHT NOW to the limitations of polling or even tabulating raw counts, sometimes we are left with the wrong impressions no matter if you’re bullish or bearish, or somewhere in between.
A grand example is the monthly jobs count from the state Employment Development Department. The number of workers reported by EDD is derived from a survey of local businesses by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Politely speaking, it should be viewed as a rough estimate.Read More

United Auto Workers union says GM layoffs show new trade deal won't stop jobs from going to Mexico – CNBC
The United Auto Workers union said General Motors‘ decision to idle plants in the U.S. and Canada shows the new trade deal between the United States, Canada and Mexico is not strong enough to stop the flow of jobs across the Mexican border.
GM is “thumbing its nose” at the trade deal, commonly referred to as the new NAFTA, the United Auto Workers union said Friday. The U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement is meant to replace the 24-year-old North American Free Trade Agreement, which President Donald Trump has repeatedly denounced as a bad deal for Americans.

There’s a running narrative that good well-paying jobs that don’t require a bachelor’s degree have all but disappeared.
