It’s Friday, which means its time to tell you what’s on tap in Monday’s Marketplace section:
• Molly Rosbach takes a look back at a 13-year-old program from the U.S. Department of Labor that provided compensation and medical benefits for former Hanford workers. One of the key offerings has been in-home nursing care.
• In my Reporter’s Notebook column, I talk about how Yakima residents have started to embrace a relatively new identity of downtown Yakima as boutique retail and entertainment center.
• Yakima’s three Rotary clubs have new presidents. Find out who they are in the In Basket column.
• Plus weekly economic indicators.
In the meanwhile, this weekend read is about a National Bureau of Economic Research paper that reveals something surprising: big box stores pay more in wages than their mom-and-pop counterparts.
Vox has a nice summary of that paper here.
