But Mr. Cotton said the Port Authority was “not stepping away from responsibility.” Instead, it was making changes now while awaiting the recommendations of Mr. LaHood, who is now a senior policy adviser to the DLA Piper law firm. Mr. LaHood said his team would look at everything and talk to everyone, including airline and airport employees and passengers. “We will get to the bottom of this,” he said.
After 65 years of battling against the influence of organized crime on the docks, the Waterfront Commission of New York Harbor is fighting for its own survival. Its biggest threat has come not from the mob in Brooklyn or Bayonne, N.J., but from elected officials in Trenton. On Monday, New Jersey’s outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, signed a bill that would withdraw New Jersey’s support for the commission, a move that could effectively mean its demise.
Rising minimum wage in NYC also appears to be driving wages higher in general: Average hourly earnings in city ended 2017 at $35.55, up more than $1.50 over the year, Average weekly wage now over $1,200 a week, or more than $62k/year.
Retail job picture in NYC is a different story. Clothing stores shed 4,000 jobs in 2017., a drop of nearly 5%. Given fast-food gains, this appears to be about collapse of brick-and-mortar retailing, not rising minimum wage.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
