Advertisement Supported by Wealth Matters After so much attention to running things, little thought goes into what comes next. Relatives should focus on their values, not money, advisers say. ByPaul Sullivan Aug 9, 2019 Four years after the sale of his family’s business, Malt-O-Meal, John Brooks said he still felt a void in his life. His grandfather had started the cereal maker in 1919, and his father ran it until his death in 1988. Nonfamily executives expanded it into the fourth-largest cereal producer in the United States before Post Cereal bought it for $1.15 billion in 2015. Since the sale, the three branches of the family have gone their own ways, Mr. Brooks said.

Target Corp. said Monday it would beef up benefits it offers its full- and part-time hourly workers, including paid family leave to care for a child or aging parent and backup child care. The move comes as retailers try to attract workers in a tightening labor market, and as their business model changes to respond to an increase in digital shopping.

He says if a community can’t provide housing for workers then those workers can’t build much needed affordable housing or sustain local economies. Horgan told business leaders at the Greater Victoria Chamber of Commerce that it’s a puzzle his government is trying to solve with the recent family-focused budget and last year’s $7 billion investment in a decade-long affordable housing strategy. Horgan says the City of Victoria recently put an affordable housing project on hold because it can’t find the skilled workers to build the initiative. The chamber’s chief executive officer Catherine Holt agrees, saying the Victoria area needs affordable housing for workers who are bypassing good jobs because they … [Read more...] about B.C. premier says affordable housing crunch hurts growth, families, province
