Nation’s unemployment rate doesn’t budge

BY Ken Clark

The U.S. Department of Labor reported that nonfarm payroll employment edged up by 103,000 jobs in September, but the unemployment rate stayed at 9.1%.

Construction was one of the areas cited for job gains, according to the employment situation summary, released Friday morning. Other areas were professional and business services and health care. 

Construction employment increased by 26,000 over the month, after showing little movement since February. The over-the-month gain was due to employment increases in the nonresidential construction industries, which includes heavy and civil construction.

The gain of 103,000 jobs was much higher than a consensus estimate of 55,000. Also, the August data were revised from zero jobs created to 57,000 jobs gained.

Shoplifting ring recruits from homeless shelters

BY Brae Canlen

An Albuquerque man arrested for allegedly stealing from Home Depot and Lowe’s on multiple occasions was using homeless people to return the merchandise for refunds, according to a news report on KRQE.

Rodney Segura was apprehended inside a Lowe’s store on Sept. 28 by detectives who had been following the suspect, according to the report. Lowe’s loss prevention officers said they also had Segura under surveillance.

Authorities claim that Segura stole $15,000 worth of goods from Lowe’s and $17,000 from Home Depot stores in the area. As part of the scheme, police said, Segura recruited 22 people from homeless shelters to return items. Both retailers have alerts built into their return systems if one individual makes too many returns, especially without a receipt.

DeWalt redesigns the steel-headed hammer

BY Ken Clark

DeWalt unveiled its 15-ounce Framing Hammer with an innovative construction process that combines an all-steel head with a lightweight hammer.

During the company’s new product luncheon at the Westin Times Square, Dennis Danville, leader of DeWalt’s assembly demolition business unit, said the hammers employ MIG Weld Technology to lower the weight of the hammer head. 

The process matches the weight of leading titanium hammers while maintaining the strength and durability,  Danville  said. "This innovation delivers the power professionals need to maximize their level of productivity while minimizing arm fatigue,” he added.

The 15-ounce Framing Hammer is expected to retail for approximately $60.

“Traditionally, hammers as heavy as 28 or even 32 ounces were the industry standard in framing applications; however, the trend is moving toward lighter hand and power tools,” Danville said.
