Employment rise little help to construction workers
The recent national upturn in job growth has not reached the construction industry, where unemployment rose from 16% in December to 17.7% in January. Those looking for work outpaced the 21,000 new construction jobs created, according to a statement released by the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA).
“While we’re encouraged to see the President’s efforts are moving our country in the right direction, today’s jobs report reveals more is needed to close the gap between those looking for work in construction and the number of new jobs being created in the industry,” said LIUNA president Terry O’ Sullivan. “Job growth is not happening fast enough.
“With 1.4 million men and women ready, willing and able to go to work building this country, there is no better time for Congress to take action by passing a highway bill that fully invests in America’s crumbling roads, bridges and transit systems,” he added.

Readers Respond: Remedies for a recovery
In a far-reaching plan that covered everything from foreclosures to new mortgage agreements, President Obama unveiled a “Homeowner Bill of Rights.” Here’s the White House’s fact sheet. And below are readers’ comments.
“Frankly this is not a good faith effort. Obama and his minions know that these efforts will not pass the ‘smell test’ in the House. There is no chance that the House of Representatives will embrace the concept of indemnifying people who made risky investments and lost. It won’t happen. What Obama’s re-election committee hopes is that they will not embrace the plan, and it then will become a talking point for his campaign. He then will have carte blanche to say that his plan would have worked, but the evil Republicans shot the plan down because they don’t care about those poor people in distress.

“If the housing stimulus funds are anything like the federal stimulus money spent on roadways in California over the last three years, then the money will only go to union contractors and then on a time and material basis. No bidding and no non-union contractors allowed.”

“Another government program that will cost taxpayers more money. When will the spending stop? Just let the housing market recover through the free enterprise system. It has worked in the past and will work now if the administration stays out of the housing market. Also, I question the timing of this grand plan since we are in an election year.”
"This is about banking reform, which we should all want to stabilize our business and the economy. Home-ownership is something that contributes greatly to our industry. We should welcome legislation that makes it possible for responsible people to get mortgages without red tape and unethical practices. Politics should not be part of this discussion."

Kitchen Compost Collector takes green award
The Full Circle Fresh Air Odor-Free Kitchen Compost Collector took home the Green House Design Award as part of the Housewares Design Awards contest.
The Fresh Air Odor-Free Kitchen Compost Collector turns kitchen scraps into organic matter to enrich the soil. Its design features a sealed container that allows oxygen to easily flow through kitchen waste. As the air passes through the organic kitchen waste, allowing for aerobic breakdown, food decomposes more slowly, and stays drier during the composting process. The result is less mess, less odor, and no fruit flies.
Four other green products were also recognized as category finalists: Ekobrew from Eko Brands LLC, JetMaxx from Electrolux Home Care Products Inc., Personal Cooler from PackIt LLC and Fizz Home Soda Maker from SodaStream USA Inc.
The product submission and judging process for the Housewares Design Awards program is managed by the International Housewares Association. The awards program was presented Jan. 31 in New York City by HomeWorld Business, with sponsorship by The Gourmet Housewares Show at NYIGF, Gourmet Insider magazine and Whitford Corp.
