Activision Blizzard's year of news appearances is almost unbelievable, but perhaps none more so than the announcement that Microsoft and Xbox is purchasing them for just under $70 BILLION in cash.

How inflation is wiping out pay raises. Plus, how Republican Gov. Glenn Youngkin's mask mandate ban has plunged Virginia's public schools into chaos. Read more:After years of barely budging, wage growth is finally at its highest level in decades. Workers have more negotiating power than many ever imagined, and average hourly wages rose 4.7 percent last year. But, as economics correspondent Abha Bhattarai explains, the same strong recovery that is emboldening workers is also driving up inflation, leaving most Americans with less spending power than they had a year ago.Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) banned mask mandates in public schools recently. Now, school districts are suing in the name of science. National education writer Laura Meckler says this is not an isolated incident. Many states are dealing with a fight to either support mask mandates or parents' rights.

Have you recently quit your job? Wanted to quit? Still plan to quit? We ask because in recent months, Texas has been racking up huge numbers of job quitters. In just three months, 1,280,000 Texans said I quit…I resign…see y'all later…take this job and shove it. It looks like many of them aren't headed to South Padre to kick back at the beach…or to the Texas Hill Country to sip wine and hike the rolling hills. Many of them have just headed right across the street to a new employer who will pay them more, and maybe even throw in some crazy bonuses. Workers are in demand. So much so that some new employees aren't even showing up to their first day of work with a new employer because they've already landed another job that's more lucrative! So how do companies know how much to pay? Will salaries keep rising here? And how do you talk your boss into giving you a raise, so you don't have to find a new job just to get a decent bump in pay? This week the Jasons are picking the brain of Jay Denton, whose Dallas-based labor market analytics firm Labor IQ by ThinkWhy probably has a good idea of how much money you make---and they are telling Texas companies how much they need to pay to lure you…or to keep you. So how are those companies responding?

There's a new hit item on the menu at Starbucks stores across the country: a signed union card. The workers at multiple Buffalo, NY-area Starbucks stores formed Starbucks Workers United this August, in response to dangerous COVID working conditions, unequal pay, and inadequate benefits. In less than half a year, they've managed to already unionize two Buffalo-area stores, in Elmwood and in Genesee, at a company notoriously aggressive in their anti-union tactics. This is huge, a game-changing pair of victories — even in a year full of strikes and COVID walkouts. To hear the story of how these incredible Starbucks Workers United organized this victory, and how you can organize your workplace, Michael talked with the Starbucks workers Jaz Brisack & Casey Moore — or, as the Orwellian Starbucks PR calls them, “partners” — two young women who helped lead the organizing effort and succeeded in slaying the giant. During the interview, Casey and Jaz encouraged Michael to cold-call the CEO of Starbucks. And when he does, someone in Nicaragua picks up the phone. A true Rumble moment. ******** Help the workers of Starbucks get the fair pay, benefits, and protections they deserve: Contact Starbucks' Customer Support line and let them know that, as a customer, you demand that Starbucks stop trying to interfere in the Union organizing efforts.

(4:37) Kevin finds that the least useful information on the loss run is often the employee's class code. (6:32) Kevin shares that the process of getting loss runs from carriers has not changed in 25 years. (12:39) Kevin recalls one situation where regardless of the severity of the injury the lag time for the claim was more than 30 days.

(21:00) Tweetable Quotes: "If people are ditching out of work for two weeks before they even tell you that they're hurt, then you're probably not going to get the biggest bang for your buck on building a recovery at work program until you fix that injury reporting issue. So, you've got to find all the different things and then you can start to identify what you are going to attack first." - Kevin Ring "If a company's loss runs don't have the information that you want or need, stop asking for a loss run, and ask them for a loss information report and tell them the specific information that you want." - Kevin Ring Resources Mentioned: Kevin Ring LinkedIn Institute of WorkComp Professional David Carothers Kyle Houck Florida Risk Partners The Extra 2 Minutes

Workers across the country are wondering with increasing desperation: Will the COVID crisis ever end? Two years after the first case of the virus was detected, society is becoming increasingly, bitterly divided over how to address this crucial question. All the while the death toll continues to mount. The situation is not hopeless. Although right wing demagogues have slowed the vaccination process and intensified the spread of the virus by sowing doubt about the most basic public health measures, it is still possible to end the pandemic. We can look at other countries for examples of why this is true. Socialist countries like China and Cuba have successfully contained COVID, despite huge difficulties. Even though it was the country where the virus struck first, China prevented its uncontrolled spread through a massive, centralized public health response that included guaranteeing workers the necessities of life like food and shelter. Adjusted for population size, the death toll in the United States is approximately 850 times higher than in China.

Nathan shares his perspective of the experience, as a father, partner and physician. Nathan also talks about the space he holds for birth and how he has evolved from an OBGYN practicing in the hospital to a more lifestyle medicine approach where he supports both parents and birth workers.

Kevin shares how the Institute of WorkComp Professionals helps to train, certify, and mentor independent agents in a Workers' Comp process that helps them write more business and get better results for their clients.    Episode Highlights: Kevin shares that he is the Lead worker's comp analyst with the Institute of WorkComp Professionals. (2:50) Kevin mentions that the firm was founded in October of 2001. (3:21) Kevin believes that mentorship is what differentiates what they do. (3:40) Kevin explains that he began retaining all of the mod worksheets that he evaluated ten years ago. (8:36) Kevin mentions that Workers' Compensation is the second-largest check they make for insurance, behind health insurance. (10:55) Kevin believes that if a company has the right strategy, methods, and an agent to support them, it can dominate a large portion of the market. (11:55) Kevin thinks that the first thing we were all taught about selling was that the potential client must understand what's in it for them. (18:08) Kevin explains that lowering their payments provides them with more income to perform what they do. (19:39) Kevin thinks that the output of a piece of software may equip them with any level of knowledge. (23:43) Kevin agrees that it is necessary to have an employer who is willing to execute the job.
