Trump’s two big hearings

Former President Donald Trump has two major hearings to start the week: One in his civil fraud case, where he owes $454 million today, and the other in his hush money trial.

…about the 2024 job market

A new survey sheds light on compensation and employment trends. I asked Kerry Hannon, a finance columnist, to break down the findings.

Lily: Who has the upper hand right now, employers or employees?

Kerry: For a few years, workers have had room to negotiate higher pay and flexibility. But employers are now taking back the reins when it comes to pay and remote work.

Lily: Does it look like pay bumps are on the menu this year?

Kerry: If you’ve got your eyes on a salary bump this year, you might be disappointed. On average, they’ll only be 4.5%, slightly ahead of inflation (3.2%). Many companies don’t even plan to give raises.

Lily: Is there any area in which employees have taken more power?

Kerry: Yep! Even if they’re doing so begrudgingly, 6 in 10 employers now share pay ranges in job ads. That’s an increase of 15% over last year, and a real plus for job seekers in salary negotiations.

Dig into the survey more: Read Kerry’s reporting.
