    US Employers Hired 128,000 in Aug., Economy slowing, But...

    Jobs and factories continued to expand at a modest pace as the U.S. economy showed resilience despite crumbling housing activity.

    Employers added 128,000 payroll jobs in August, the Labor Department said Friday.

    That’s in line with hiring over the prior four months and nearly matched Wall Street forecasts.

    The jobless rate edged down to 4.7%, its 2006 average.

    Pay gains cooled, as hourly earnings rose just 2 cents in August.

    But July wages were revised up slightly. And year-over-year hourly pay climbed 3.9% — a five-year high. Higher wages will help keep consumer…

    Wal-Mart’s profit falls 26 percent

    Wal-Mart Stores Inc. posted its first profit decline in a decade Tuesday as the world’s largest retailer was forced to pay a hefty price for withdrawing from Germany, selling its stores there at a loss to a rival.

    Chief Executive Lee Scott also said sales at Wal-Mart’s U.S. stores were disappointing as high gas and energy prices hit the pocketbooks of customers.

    Results were still in line with expectations and the company reiterated its guidance for the year.

    For the quarter ended July 31, the company posted net income of $2.08 billion, or 50 cents per share, down from $2.81…

    Consumer price inflation slows

    WASHINGTON – U.S. core consumer prices rose at a slightly slower rate in July and the pace of construction starts on new homes was the slowest in more than three years, the government said.

    The two reports added to evidence of a slowing economy that may help keep inflation in check and permit the Federal Reserve to keep interest rates steady. Stock futures and bond prices rallied immediately after the data was issued and the dollar weakened against other currencies. The Labor Department said its core consumer price index, an inflation gauge that strips out volatile food and energy costs,…

    CHICAGO – McDonald’s Corp. Tuesday said it will sell its remaining stake in Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. by the end of October to focus on its hamburger restaurants, where new menu items and World Cup promotions helped drive a 57 percent rise in quarterly profit.

  • Study on Minority Advertising to Determine Equality on Federal...

    Washington, DC– Despite an executive order and a bill enacted into law by Congress designed to aggressively take steps to direct resources towards minority owned media, historically the federal government has not allocated a proportionally fair amount of resources to promote federal programs directed towards minorities in minority owned and minority consumed media. A study on minority advertising requested of the General Accounting Office (GAO) would determine the effectiveness of the current administration in addressing this issue.

    Executive Order 13170, signed in October 2000, directs…
