These Companies Are Hiring During the CCP Virus Crisis

Businesses shut down across America during the CCP virus pandemic, leading to millions of layoffs and furloughs. The U.S. job market is attempting to emerge from its worst downturn in modern memory. But it’s not all doom and gloom on the employment front. There are still companies hiring amid the economic calamity as changing consumer habits compel employers in a wide variety of industries to stock up on talent. Grocery and Retail The Kroger Company Kroger and its subsidiaries have been expanding, like other major grocery store chains during the pandemic. The second largest grocer in the United States is still looking to hire about 6,800 people from coast to coast to keep up with consumer demand. Kroger says it has hired more than 100,000 workers since mid-March and has…

US Will Allow Limited Flights by Chinese Airlines, Not a Ban

The Trump administration said June 5 it will let Chinese airlines operate a limited number of flights to the United States, easing off from an earlier threat to ban the flights.

The decision came one day after China appeared to open the door to U.S. carriers United Airlines and Delta Air Lines resuming one flight per week each into the country.

The Transportation Department said it will let Chinese passenger airlines fly a combined total of two round-trip flights per week between the United States and China, matching the number of flights that China’s aviation authority will allow for U.S. carriers.

United and Delta did not comment immediately on the latest development in the dispute between the two countries and how it will affect their plans. Both had hoped to offer more flights.

The dispute between Washington and Beijing over airline service has been building for weeks and is part of broader trade and diplomatic tension between the world’s two biggest economies.

In early January, there were more than 300 flights per week between the two countries, but international carriers reduced and then stopped flying to China as the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus pandemic devastated demand for air travel. United, Delta, and American Airlines suspended flights to China before mid-March.

Chinese airlines reduced but didn’t eliminate their flights to the United States. They ran about 20 flights per week in February, and 34 by mid-March. Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, and Xiamen Airlines continue flying those routes.

Travel in both China and the United States has partly recovered in the past two months, although it remains far below 2019 levels. In May, United and Delta petitioned China to resume flights there, but received no response.

The Trump administration protested that China’s refusal to grant access to U.S. airlines was unfair. The Transportation Department announced Wednesday that it would prohibit all passenger airline flights from China no later than June 16.

On Thursday, the Civil Aviation Administration of China said it would let more foreign airlines fly to China starting next week as anti-CCP virus controls are eased.

The order did not identify airlines, but appeared to limit United and Delta to one flight per week because they stopped flying to China before mid-March. American does not plan to return to China before October.

US Will Reevaluate Intelligence-Sharing with Canada if Huawei Participates in Country’s 5G: State Department

The U.S. State Department has said intelligence-sharing with Canada will be reevaluated if Chinese telecom giant Huawei is allowed to take part in building the country’s 5G wireless network. Canada remains the only member of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance that has not yet taken a clear position on whether to block Huawei from its national 5G infrastructure, though the federal government has been reviewing the issue for nearly two years. “We’ll have to make an assessment if we can continue sharing intelligence with countries who have Huawei inside their most sensitive technology, in their most sensitive national security areas,” State Department spokesperson Morgan Ortagus told CBC News on June 4. During a press conference on June 4, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau did not respond directly when a reporter asked…
