Those most likely to be dissatisfied are workers in the retail sector followed closely by those in legal work. Almost 60 per cent of workers in the Hospitality & Catering industry were unhappy with their levels of pay. The public sector has been under years of pay restraint to assist with deficit reduction so it will come as little surprise that nurses and teachers were also counted as some of the unhappiest workers in the country.Adzuna’s research showed a sharp regional difference in terms of pay satisfaction. The south-east and the south-west had the happiest workers while Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland had the least happy.Overall, 52 per cent of British workers are dissatisfied with their pay. Adzuna co-founder Andrew Hunter said:Wages have been stagnant and consistently lagging behind inflation. That said, our data suggests that employers across the country are starting to lift the lid on rates of pay.While the last few years have been a tough time for workers the squeeze on living standards may finally be coming to an end.The UK’s unemployment rate fell again between September and November, falling from six per cent in the previous three months to 5.8 per cent. Wages were also up by 1.8 per cent and 1.7 per cent including bonuses, when compared to a year earlier. Many consumers are also benefiting from falling food and oil prices.The country’s happiest workers were employed in consultancy roles, where only 20 per cent were dissatisfied with their pay. Manufacturing roles and careers in IT also proved to be highly satisfactory for their workers. last_img read more

Canada’s housing market no longer ‘highly vulnerable’: CMHC

first_img Canadian Press GTA home sales down 13% between April and May: TRREB The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says it no longer rates the country’s housing market as highly vulnerable after an overall easing of price acceleration.The federal agency said in a report Thursday that it rates the overall market at moderate after 10 consecutive quarters at the highly vulnerable rating, though some cities remain at elevated risk. “The state of the national housing market has improved to moderate vulnerability,” CMHC chief economist Bob Dugann said in a statement.“Even though moderate evidence of overvaluation continues for Canada as a whole, there has been improved alignment overall between house prices and housing market fundamentals in 2018.”The inflation-adjusted average price decreased 5.4% in the last quarter of 2018 from the same period a year earlier.CMHC said that while house prices in Vancouver, Victoria, Toronto and Hamilton moved closer to sustainable levels, it continues to see a high degree of vulnerability in those markets.The agency noted that while Vancouver remains rated at highly vulnerable, evidence of overvaluation has changed from high to moderate.The biggest cities in the Prairies remain at a moderate degree of vulnerability, while Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Moncton, Halifax and St. John’s are rated as low vulnerability.The report based its vulnerability assessment on several criteria including price acceleration, overvaluation, overbuilding, and overheating.Price acceleration has eased nationally after the federal government’s mortgage stress tests came into effect in 2018 and raised the bar for qualifying for a mortgage, the report said.“Tighter mortgage rules, likely reduced demand for housing, and contributed to the observed decline of house prices.”CMHC also noted that inflation adjusted personal disposable income dropped by 1.2% to reduce buying power, but that was partially offset by a young-adult population that grew by 1.9% to continue to increase the pool of potential first-time homebuyers.

ICAO welcomes updates on Saudi Green Initiatives

first_imgICAO welcomes updates on Saudi Green Initiatives Montréaland Riyadh, 6 April 2021 – Saudi Arabia’s twin new initiatives for environmental protection were welcomed last week by the President of the ICAO Council, Mr. Salvatore Sciacchitano, and by ICAO Secretary General, Dr. Fang Liu.During virtual meetings with Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Energy, HRH Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman Al Saud, and its Minister of Transport, Eng. Saleh bin Nasser Al Jasser, President Sciacchitano and Secretary General Liu learned how the Government of Saudi Arabia aims to enhance environmental protection nationally and in the Middle East region more generally “by clearly defining an ambitious roadmap that rallies the region and significantly contributes to achieving global targets in confronting climate change.”“Environmental sustainability and responsibility are key to the twin and mutually dependent objectives of addressing climate change and assuring the sustainable recovery of the global civil aviation network,” remarked President Sciacchitano. “The initiatives announced by Saudi Arabia will contribute key momentum to ensuring that aviation builds back better in the region, and will help inspire progress worldwide.”“Environmental protection is a strategic objective for ICAO, with States having agreed to both a global climate neutral growth objective and a range of tools and mechanisms for achieving this,” Dr. Liu further emphasized.Through their recent interactions at ICAO, governments have stressed the importance of a greener, more sustainable recovery of the air transport sector post pandemic, highlighting the ongoing role of aviation connectivity in countries’ achievement of 15 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. /Public Release.

Lilly Endowment Fellows Named At CU-Boulder School Of Journalism

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail The School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Colorado at Boulder has awarded three doctoral dissertation fellowships in religion, media and culture for the 2004-05 academic year. The three recipients are Alexandra Boutros, Mark Elmore and Bahiyyih Watson Maroon. Each will receive a $12,000 stipend from Lilly Endowment Inc. in Indianapolis. “These students are outstanding emergent scholars who have a great deal to contribute,” said Lynn Schofield Clark, assistant research professor. “Their work will add to understandings of how the proliferation of media systems around the world are changing religious practices and understandings.” This is the third year of the Lilly dissertation fellowship program, made possible by a multiyear grant. The purpose of the fellowship is to bring together students at similar stages in their dissertation research and writing processes who share interests in the intersection of media, religion and culture. Boutros, a doctoral candidate in the department of art history and communication studies at McGill University in Montreal, studies contemporary intersections of religion, media, commodity culture and globalization in the religious practices of Haitian Vodou in North America. Elmore, a doctoral candidate in the department of religious studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, studies visual and print media in northwest India and issues related to Himachali citizenship. Watson Maroon, a doctoral candidate in cultural anthropology at the University of California, Santa Cruz, studies the social transformations accompanying the emergence of innovative media and communication technologies. Her fieldwork is taking place in Casablanca, Morocco. The fellows will participate in two master seminars. One will take place at the American Academy of Religion Annual Conference in November and the other is a two-day seminar at CU-Boulder in February. At both of the seminars, leading scholars in media, religion and culture will interact with the fellows, their advisers and a research team at CU-Boulder’s School of Journalism, headed by Professor Stewart Hoover and Clark. Three fellowship grants of $12,000 each are available to doctoral candidates engaged in research involving media, religion and culture for 2005-06. The grants are designed to coincide with the development of dissertation research in the early stages of candidacy. Deadline for these applications is April 5, 2005. Applications are available online at http://www.mediareligion.org/.
