    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – In a surprise transaction this week, Levin Furniture is taking over three Loves Furniture stores in the Pittsburgh area and two other unopened stores in Altoona and State College. It’s part of Robert Levin’s plan to bring back to life the furniture and mattress stores he sold when he retired in 2017. When Levin first retired, he sold off his family stores to a company that went bankrupt. Rather than see his stores shuttered and former employees out of work, Levin stepped in last March to buy them back. But he couldn’t get all his local stores back until now. “We were only able to get four of our seven furniture stores back in Pittsburgh,” Levin told KDKA money editor Jon Delano on Tuesday. “So with this deal we just inked, we are going to get all of our original Levin Furniture stores back in the family....
    Federal prosecutors charged five current and former New York metro workers on Thursday for “extraordinary” abuses of the state’s public employee overtime system. The longtime workers were allegedly among the highest-paid employees of the entire Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) because of fraudulent overtime claims, according to The Department of Justice (DOJ), which called the abuses “extraordinary.” Four of the men were Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) employees while one was a New York City Transit Authority employee. “These defendants, senior LIRR and New York City Transit employees, allegedly made themselves some of the highest-paid employees at the entire MTA by claiming extraordinary, almost physically impossible, amounts of overtime,” acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said in a statement, according to the DOJ. “As alleged, those almost impossible claims were fueled by brazen, repeated fraud, including falsely claiming to be working overtime hours while the defendants were at their homes or, in...
    Five former and current MTA employees - four of whom are from Long Island - are facing charges for an alleged elaborate overtime fraud scheme that reportedly net them more than $1 million. Federal prosecutors charged “MTA Overtime King” Thomas Caputo, a Holbrook resident, and four others on Thursday, Dec. 3 for an “extraordinary” scheme that saw all five being paid while at home, on vacation, or doing other things besides being on the job. Along with Caputo, Levittown resident Joseph Ruzzo, Rocky Point resident John Nugent, Blue Point resident Joseph Balestra, and Manalapan, N.J. resident Michael Gunderson are also facing a host of charges for a scheme prosecutors called “incredibly blatant.” Acting U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said each of the co-conspirators schemed to fraudulently receive thousands of dollars in compensation from the MTA by falsely claiming to have worked hundreds of voluntary overtime hours - and in the...

    Another 9,000 city employees will be furloughed, saving the city $21 million, in a bid to balance the budget, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced Wednesday. The five-day furlough will start in October and last through March and will affect all managerial employees and non-union workers at city agencies. “It has real human consequences but it is necessary,” de Blasio said at his daily press briefing. “We need to keep finding savings to keep bridging us to give us a chance to get something better than layoffs. No one wants to see layoffs, but unfortunately they’re still on the table.” Last week, the mayor announced he and nearly 500 mayor’s office employees would take five days of unpaid leave to get closer to plugging the $1 billion shortfall to balance the 2021 budget. Hizzoner has repeatedly implored Washington for a federal bailout amid the coronavirus crisis, which has caused the city...
    By DAVID EGGERT, Associated Press LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The state on Friday fined six businesses thousands of dollars for allegedly not protecting workers from the coronavirus, in what was described as an initial round of citations in cases where regulators flag serious violations. The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration cited the firms for infractions such as letting employees work near each other without masks and failing to do daily health screenings and or develop a COVID-19 preparedness and response plan. One of the businesses, Coop's Iron Works — a fitness center in Saginaw — opened in defiance of Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's order that has kept gyms closed to indoor activities for five months except in northern Michigan. The Saginaw County Health Department referred the fitness club to the state when it became associated with nearly 20 cases of the virus, said MIOSHA Director Bart Pickelman. It was fined...
    Meat plants in the US and abroad have been especially hard-hit by coronavirus - and an outbreak at one South Dakota facility spread like wildfire to more than 900 workers in just five weeks, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report reveals.  Dozens of meat and poultry processing plants across the US have overwhelmed by coronavirus, which is transmitted easily in confined spaces with a high density of people in them.  The South Dakota plant's outbreak quickly exploded from a first case diagnosed in March to 929 of its 3,635 employees by April 25.  Two of those employees died of the disease that has ravaged the world.  Yet, the processing plant did not begin to close down until April 12, by which point, 369 cases had already been confirmed, a fact that has the CDC urging similar facilities to take more aggressive action as soon as a first...
    The majority of political contributions made by employees of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention since 2015 have gone to Democratic candidates or causes, federal election records show. Donors who list the CDC as their employer have made more than 8,000 contributions totaling over $285,000 to various political campaigns or organizations. An analysis by the Daily Caller News Foundation found only five contributions were sent to a Republican political action committee or candidate, totaling just over $1,000. Only three people donated to President Trump's 2016 campaign.

"I disagree with @CDCgov on their very tough & expensive guidelines for opening schools. While they want them open, they are asking...

    MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) — Employees at the Iowa Veterans Home have been disciplined more than 20 times for personal protective equipment lapses that potentially exposed residents and staff to coronavirus. Commandant Timon Oujiri said Monday the strict approach to requiring masks and other equipment when interacting with residents and colleagues has helped keep coronavirus largely out of the state’s biggest nursing home. He says 25 employees and seven residents have tested positive since the beginning of the pandemic and all have recovered. Oujiri says he considers that a major success, noting that the Marshalltown home has 456 residents and 900 employees. Still, there have been numerous policy violations. He confirmed that five employees have received three-day suspensions for showing a “complete disregard of PPE” that results in “repeated exposure to residents and staff.” He says five others have received one-day suspensions for exposing residents, and nine have received written reprimands...
    By Claire Cain Miller – Most Americans who worked in an office are in no rush to return to that full-time workplace, even when the coronavirus is under control. But this does not mean that they prefer Work from home forever. Various data seem to indicate that in the future your work week will most likely be divided between work in the office and work from home. Recent surveys show that both employees and employers like this combination. In addition, several investigations suggest that a couple of days constitute the magic number to eliminate the negative aspects of each place and obtain the greatest advantages from both. “We shouldn’t have to choose between full-time or no-office options,” said Nicholas Bloom, a professor of economics at Stanford University, whose research has identified causal relationships between telecommuting and the performance of the employees. “I am convinced that after COVID-19, it would...
