Day Without a Woman – Funding
Left-wing women are organizing a strike for March 8, in order to prove their worth and the importance of liberal policy. The Day Without a Woman strike is the latest event pushed by organizers of the post-inauguration Women’s March.

While the Women’s March itself claimed to stand for all women, it celebrated a host of liberal causes from abortion to eco-extremism and 100 of its partners were funded by liberal billionaire George Soros.

Soros didn’t fund the Jan. 21, 2017, march directly. He had already given $246,637,217 to march partners, including some of the most prominent groups battling the right: Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress and People for the American Way (PFAW). Those donations represent just a fragment of Soros’ massive global influence. His Open Society Foundations have given away more than $13 billion to push his globalist, anti-American views.
Are Young People Leaving the Church?
Within evangelicalism, it has become an oft-repeated truism that young people are leaving both the faith and Church in very disturbing numbers. Some of the numbers cited are indeed very disturbing.

One very popular evangelical author said that if present trends in the beliefs and practices of young adults continue, church attendance will be half of what it is in ten years. He said that in 2005. We continue to hear similar warnings.

Has this happened in your church? Counter to such dire predictions, evangelical churches across the country are holding their own, even growing nicely in many instances. Even with young people.

Here is a concise explanation of the truth and fiction of this topic. It is a much more encouraging story than the one we usually hear.
Why Are Millennials Job Hopping?
I think we might need to accept that things have changed, and millennials just don’t stay in a job for that long. I’m not saying it’s right. I’m just saying it’s true.

Right now, “9 in 10 millennials expect to stay in a job for only three years.” (Barna Research)

So it begs the question, how much should we pour into millennials if they’re going to leave soon?

I’m a millennial so I know I’m biased, but my advice to business leaders would be to throw more money towards training and coaching so you can spend less money on recruiting and hiring. Here are 3 reasons to invest a ton in the millennial workforce, even if they may not stay long.
