    Employees at a Trader Joe's in Western Massachusetts are celebrating as they became the first store to form a union at their company. "This victory is historic, but not a surprise," Trader Joe's United said in a statement on Twitter. "Despite the company's best efforts to bust us, our majority have never wavered." The union vote passed 45-31 at a store in Hadley with 81 Trader Joe's employees casting their votes, Boston.com reports. The next step is to negotiate a contract with the company.  "We now begin the difficult work of sitting down at the negotiating table as equal with our employers," Trader Joe's United continued. "We must embrace this challenged head on, together, and negotiate a contract that reflects the values Trader Joe's has long claimed to espouse."  Organizers at the Hadley store have been trying to unionize since citing concerns about pay, benefits and safety in May, Boston.com reports.  Currently, Trader Joe's offers a slew of benefits from healthcare and retirement plans to paid time off and a 20% store discount. A spokesperson with the company told Boston.com they already...
    President Joe Biden on Saturday signed into law a legislation that marks some of the biggest changes to federal gun law in decades. 'I was here 30 years ago last time this nation passed meaningful gun safety laws and I'm here today for the most significant law to be passed since the last 30 years,' Biden said, referring to his more than 30 years as a senator.  'From Columbine to Sandy Hook to Charleston, Orlando, Las Vegas, Parkland, El Paso, Atlanta, Buffalo, Uvalde, and for the shootings that happen every day in the streets that are mass shootings, we don't even hear about the number of people killed every day in the streets. Their message to us was to just something,' the president said. 'Today we did,' he noted.  He conceded the legislation doesn't have everything he wanted but noted it will 'save lives.' The president praised the bipartisan work on the issue. 'It's time when this seems impossible get anything done in Washington. We are doing something consequential,' he said.  President Joe Biden on Saturday signed into law a...
    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Major progress was made Saturday as lawmakers work to cobble together a budget deal before the end of the legislative session. Legislators have until midnight on Sunday to have everything buttoned up, but the tax package has been agreed on. READ MORE: Owner Reunited With Dog After Her Car Was Stolen In Downtown MinneapolisDFL Rep. Paul Marquart, the chair of the House Tax Committee, said the bipartisan agreement equals the largest tax cuts in the history of the state. “This…is going to have a real and meaningful impact on people’s lives. This is historic,” Marquart said. Lawmakers from both parties made tax cuts a priority this session with more than $9 billion in state surplus money. Under the $4 billion deal, senior citizens would no longer pay taxes on their social security checks. Additionally, 2.4 million filers would see a small income tax reduction every paycheck. An increased child and dependent care tax credit would help an estimated 81,000 families. READ MORE: Dozens Of Homes Flooded After Water Main Breaks In St. Louis ParkLegislators also say the...
    (CNN)The plummeting water level of Lake Mead has exposed one of the reservoir's original water intake valves for the first time, officials say. Amid the West's climate change-fueled megadrought, Lake Mead -- the largest manmade reservoir in the country and a source of water for millions of people -- has fallen to an unprecedented low. The valve had been in service since 1971 but can no longer draw water, according to the Southern Nevada Water Authority, which is responsible for managing water resources for 2.2 million people in Southern Nevada, including Las Vegas.Photos taken Monday show the eldest of the agency's three intake valves high and dry above the water line.The original intake is no longer in use since it cannot draw water."When the lake hit 1060 (feet above sea level), that's when you could start to see the top of the intake number one," said Bronson Mack, public outreach officer for the Southern Nevada Water Authority.Read MoreLake Mead hit 1,060 feet above sea level on April 4 and stands at 1055 feet as of Wednesday, he said.As a result,...
    The Sunday before the Masters is usually a sleepy affair at Augusta National, as the early arrivals check in and a cathedral hush settles over the place one last time before the gates open on Monday. Not this year. Not today. Indeed, if they were allowed, the American press would probably form a cavalcade down Magnolia Lane, checking every courtesy car for confirmation that this year’s field really will include Tiger Woods. Every fascinating storyline regarding the 86th edition appears on pause until we know definitively one way or the other. Tiger Woods has yet to decide on whether he will be featuring at the Masters later this week The game has a new world No 1, there is a real possibility the tournament might be missing its defending champion for the first time in 62 years, there is the usual fascination about big names and the state of their games, there is an intriguing women’s major taking place in California... none of it matters down here in this southern citadel until we know. It is understandable. The last time...
    "Fernando Llerenas picks pears in Hood River, Oregon on August 13, 2021." It’s been a momentous week for immigrant justice in Oregon. On Monday, Democratic members of the state’s upper chamber passed legislation designating $15 million in legal aid funding for immigrant residents facing deportation. The next day, Democratic members of the lower chamber passed a bill that could make Oregon the latest state to extend overtime pay to agricultural workers, The Oregonian reports. While these workers are wholly responsible for feeding America, they’ve been excluded from overtime under a racist law passed more than 80 years ago. “Farmworker Overtime, HB 4002, passed the House and heads to the Senate,” tweeted state Rep. Khanh Pham. “This is a historic opportunity to redress the exclusion of farmworkers from the 1938 Federal Labor Standards Act. Oregon farmworkers feed our state & deserve fair wages and equal treatment under the law.” “In recent years, seven states have adopted laws establishing overtime pay for farmworkers after various thresholds, with Maryland and New York setting the cutoff at 50 hours a week,” Civil Eats reported earlier this month. Should HB 2002 pass the House...
    (CNN)Cindy Benson, a member of the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes, has lived her entire life in or near the Flathead Indian Reservation in western Montana. She says her family lineage can be traced back as far as Chief Looking Glass in the 1800s, so Benson and generations of her family have witnessed firsthand the declining numbers of native species in the area. "Our native species are disappearing everywhere. In fish, animals, plants and insects. We need to take a stand," said Benson.The native bull trout and westslope cutthroat trout are two species that are experiencing a decline in population. One of the main reasons for that is the introduction of lake trout to the area. "I remember when I was a young child, people fishing out on the lake, my dad included. They were fishing for the native fish, and I actually remember the day they caught their first lake trout. And what a shock it was to them. After that they were catching them all the time ... and that slowly led to their quitting fishing."Benson's family weren't...
    DETROIT -- Quarterback Rocky Lombardi ran for three touchdowns and Jay Ducker ran for 146 yards on 29 carries to power Northern Illinois to a 41-23 victory over Kent State in the Mid-American Conference title game on Saturday.It is the Huskies' (9-4) sixth MAC title in the last 11 years and first since 2018 when it beat Buffalo. Kent State (7-6) was shooting for its first conference championship since winning it in 1972."This is historic," said Huskies coach Thomas Hammock whose team was predicted to finish in last place this year after going 0-6 in 2020. "I don't think any team has gone winless the year before and won a championship.""When everybody said we would finish last, all I told our team was we are the best team in the MAC until proven otherwise. Obviously, they didn't prove us otherwise."Momentum appeared to be shifting to the Golden Flashes at the start of the second half. Andrew Glass kicked a 41-yard field goal on the opening drive for their first points of the game and the Kent State defense forced Northern...
    BOSTON (CBS) — Michelle Wu made history Tuesday night, becoming the first woman and person of color to be elected mayor of Boston in a landslide win. Now her priority shifts to organizing her administration with less than two weeks to go until she is sworn into office. Wu kicked off Wednesday morning with a victory breakfast in Roxbury, where she spoke to the media about preparing for the “unusual situation” of officially becoming mayor so soon after an election. Read: Who Is Michelle Wu? “The top priority is building out our team. No single elected official, no single person is going to be able to solve or take on the scale of challenges we see across the city,” said Wu, who has yet to name a chief of staff. “This is about empowering a full team that is reflective of Boston, representative of the expertise in our communities, connected to the urgency of the issues.” Wu is meeting with Acting Mayor Kim Janey Wednesday afternoon to discuss transition priorities. She said the goal is stability and to ensure that...

    (CNN)President Joe Biden on Friday touted America's economic recovery from the coronavirus pandemic after the US added 850,000 jobs in June. "This is historic progress. Pulling our economy out of the worst crisis in 100 years. Driven in part by our dramatic progress in vaccinating our nation and beating back the pandemic," Biden said at the White House. The US economy added far more jobs in June than economists had expected. The strong jobs numbers are a signal American job growth is accelerating as the country recovers from the coronavirus pandemic. The unemployment rate, however, stood at 5.9%, up from 5.8% in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday.The hospitality and leisure sector had the strongest growth and added 343,000 jobs in June. More than half of those jobs were at restaurants and bars. Read MoreThe comments come as Biden looks to pass two major proposals on infrastructure and expanding the social safety net.

    (CNN)T.J. Atkin's family has been in the cattle ranching business for nearly a century. In that time, he says, a drought has never hit their operations this hard. "Everyone else I've talked to says in 85 years, it has not been this bad," Atkin told CNN. "We have 85 years' worth of our own drought data that says we've never done this ... not to this extent."Atkin, carrying on his family's legacy as a rancher, operates two properties in Utah and northwest Arizona, both of which have been experiencing an extended severe drought. "In the last 15 months combined, we're barely at 3 inches," he said of precipitation, adding that the expected rainfall should be closer to 12 inches during that time.Millions in the West have been plagued by historic drought for months. The entirety of California, Oregon, Utah and Nevada are in drought, according to data from the US Drought Monitor, as are 88% of areas across all Western states. At no other time in the past 20 years has the drought been this extreme. Scientists say its unrelenting...
    DENVER (CBS4) – Two new laws could help transform early childhood education in Colorado. They make what may be the state’s single biggest investment ever in childcare while also making changes to improve transparency and safety. “Today is a big darn deal,” Executive Director of Human Services Michelle Barnes said as Gov. Jared Polis signed the laws on Wednesday. (credit: CBS) A law by Reps. Kerry Tipper, Tonya Van Beber and Sens. Tammy Story and Jerry Sonnenberg provides more than $400 million in grants for salaries, education, recruitment and retention of childcare workers, employer-based childcare, and assistance for low-income families. The Colorado Children’s Campaign says the average annual pay of a childcare worker in Colorado is about $25,000 – the equivalent of minimum wage. The annual turn-over rate in the industry is 30 percent. In addition to accessibility of childcare, affordability is an issue. Childcare is the biggest expense for many families. (credit: CBS) “I can tell you that just today I almost wasn’t able to come here because of childcare issues,” Rep. Tipper said at a press conference at...

    Mention the word “pioneer” to Hercules police Reserve Officer Connie Van Putten, and immediately her mind goes to a baseball diamond, a place that’s never far away from her soul. “Jackie,” she says, referring to Jackie Robinson, the man who in 1947 became Major League Baseball’s first Black player. She mentions the “barriers he broke” and the “courage he had to go out there and be different than everyone else.” She talks about the “strength and tenaciousness.” It doesn’t dawn on her that she is describing much about her own legacy as a pioneer in policing, as she broke gender barriers in Southern California and the Bay Area in a 56-year career that continues today. “She absolutely is and was a pioneer, too,” said retired Union City police Capt. Hank Berberian, who was in his position when Van Putten was hired there in 1987. “She has paved the way for so many women.” Van Putten’s story seems an appropriate one to tell with the start of Major League Baseball , because it can’t be told without America’s grand old game as a...
    Local Lore explores local history and hidden facts in our communities. With Local Lore, ABC7 points out extraordinary details in neighborhoods you may otherwise overlook. There was once a canyon in Montrose, Calif., that had dozens of oak trees and a natural spring, according to the Historical Society of the Crescenta Valley. It's believed that Tongva Indians once used the spring's water and rested in the shade of the trees.In the 1920s, the canyon was turned into a recreation center known as Indian Springs. It provided a source of entertainment and relaxation to locals for about four decades. The pool was known for its racial inclusivity and for training Olympic swimmers.In 1966, Indian Springs was sold and the new owner decided to build a shopping mall. The site was filled in with dirt from a construction site up the road where now sits Verdugo Hills Hospital.While Indian Springs is gone, the spring itself still has running water below ground.Watch the video above for the full report.ABC News' Michael Murray contributed to this report as the editor and co-producer.Follow Olivia on...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Record-breaking cold and living life below zero is nothing new in the Bold North. But our extreme conditions also took a trip down south and nearly spread from coast to coast. So how historic is this winter weather event? Good Question. RELATED: Minnesota House Pulls $35M Security Fund For Chauvin Trial WCCO’s Jeff Wagner found some southerners are learning about it the hard way. They’re the type of forecasts we know all too well, with TV news meteorologists saying things like, “Hard freeze warning tonight through Tuesday at noon” and “We’re going with zero for that overnight low.” Only those are direct quotes from the CBS station in Dallas, Texas. How historic is this winter weather event? “We’re seeing impacts as far north as International Falls all the way down to the southern point of Texas,” said Tyler Hasenstein, meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “Typically we don’t see weather events that are happening across the country that far.” Outside of Florida and the southwest corner of California, much of the United States is weathering artic air...
    U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Monday touted the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine’s historic rollout as the first doses were shipped out the previous morning. Adams said in an interview with FNC’s “Fox & Friends” that the new vaccine’s rollout is “the beginning of the end” of the race as the nation continues to deal with COVID-19. “It’s a great day; it’s a historic day. This is the beginning of the end, but we have still got a few miles left to run in this race,” Adams stated. With the vaccine being ready in record time, Adams shot down the notion of scientific corners being cut just for the sake of having a vaccine produced. “There were no cutting of scientific corners,” he advised. “It was the cutting of administrative red tape. It was massive funding, which allowed us to scale up production even as the vaccine was being produced.” “I want people to know this is the most difficult vaccine rollout in history,” Adams cautioned. “There will be hiccups, undoubtedly, but we have done everything from a federal level and...
    Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, stands on the construction site of the Tesla Gigafactory in Grünheide near Berlin, September 3, 2020.Patrick Pleul | picture alliance | Getty Images The addition of Tesla into the S&P 500 at the close this Friday will be one of the biggest trading days in history, but it is only the most recent example of an ongoing trend: index managers who make the decisions of what goes in and out of these indexes are becoming increasingly influential. "Rebalancings have become major trading events because more investors are tied to indexes, so the volume of trading during rebalances has gone way up," Harry Whitton from market maker Old Mission told me. Whitton noted that the heaviest days of trading are now typically on major index rebalancings.  The S&P 500 will rebalance on Friday, one of four days a year it does so.  Friday's rebalance will likely see record levels of trading activity at the close due to Tesla's addition to the S&P 500.  In addition to the S&P rebalancing, several major ETFs will also rebalance on...
    When I saw the newsflash about the vaccine yesterday, I was immediately reminded of another – and admittedly very different – scientific achievement. The Manhattan Project in World War II led to the development of the atomic bomb. Now whatever your view of the destructive use of nuclear weapons – and tragically more than 200,000 people died at Nagasaki and Hiroshima – it is widely accepted that without their deployment that conflict would have continued. Hundreds of thousands of service personnel and civilians would have died, with more misery and suffering for millions worldwide.  When I saw the newsflash about the vaccine yesterday, I was immediately reminded of another scientific achievement (pictured, someone receiving an injection during clinical trials) I believe that the global potential of this vaccine – to save lives and reduce suffering – is on a similar scale. In both cases, researchers understood the basic science from the outset, but had to produce results fast while millions of lives hung in the balance. What has been achieved from a standing start really is an incredible feat....
    (CNN)Election week in America has come to an end. The votes have been counted. And Joe Biden will be the next President of the United States. While Democrats did not get the landslide victory they were hoping for, make no mistake: Biden's win is huge and historic. Why Donald Trump lost So far, Biden has won over 74 million votes -- more than any other president in American history -- exceeding the previous record President Barack Obama set in 2008. Biden won with at least 50.5% of the popular vote, crossing the majority threshold that President Donald Trump failed to clear in 2016, when he received just 46.4% of the popular vote. On the road to 270 electoral votes, Biden flipped at least three states Democrats lost in 2016. He became only the 11th challenger to dislodge an incumbent president. He reclaimed the upper Midwest and is also leading in Arizona, Nevada and Georgia. According to exit polls, he won independent voters, union households and moderates by double-digit margins over Trump. Read MoreIt is an impressive mandate for the former...

    Winter is coming and so is the prospect of a “twindemic.” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and an expert in infectious diseases for the last four decades, told CNBC’s Shepard Smith Monday evening that it was more critical than ever to wear to do these five things: wear a mask, social distance, avoid crowded spaces, do things outdoors where possible, and wash your hands frequently. “I think we’re facing a whole lot of trouble,” Fauci said. “We have a baseline of infections now that vary between 40,000 and 50,000 per day. That’s a bad place to be when you’re going into the cooler weather of the fall, and the colder weather of the winter. In addition, we would like to see the percent positivity be coming down.” Over 215,000 have died in the U.S. from COVID-19. “ ‘We have a baseline of infections now that vary between 40,000 and 50,000 per day.

    (CNN)The New England Journal of Medicine is, as the name suggests, mostly focused on, well, medicine. Which makes what it published this week all the more important and impactful.In an editorial titled "Dying in a Leadership Vacuum," the editors of the Journal blasted President Donald Trump (although not by name) for his handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Here's the key bit:"Anyone else who recklessly squandered lives and money in this way would be suffering legal consequences. Our leaders have largely claimed immunity for their actions. But this election gives us the power to render judgment. Reasonable people will certainly disagree about the many political positions taken by candidates. But truth is neither liberal nor conservative. When it comes to the response to the largest public health crisis of our time, our current political leaders have demonstrated that they are dangerously incompetent. We should not abet them and enable the deaths of thousands more Americans by allowing them to keep their jobs."That would be powerful stuff even if the New England Journal of Medicine regularly weighed in on politics. Which it...

    Wolf Blitzer confronted Jared Kushner Tuesday over a retweet from President Donald Trump that the CNN anchor said he was “very disturbed” by. Blitzer spoke with Kushner about the Abraham Accords signed by Israel, the United Arab Emirates, and Bahrain earlier Tuesday, and congratulated Kushner on the historic achievement. Towards the end of the interview, however, he took a moment to call out the president for retweeting someone who used the hashtag “#PedoBiden”: “[He shared] a very, very disturbing ugly message accusing the Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden, of actually being a pedophile. Is that appropriate to give publicity to a really disgusting accusation like that, especially at a time when there are all those QAnon conspiracy theories about pedophiles running the Democratic party, all those anti-Semitic conspiracy theories they’re spreading as well. It’s so disturbing to see that, Jared.” Kushner said, “I haven’t seen the tweet. I’ve been focused today on this historic peace deal.” “I’m happy to come on another time and talk about that. But today let’s focus on the fact that president trump was nominated...
