If you havent noticed the headlines in recent months, the U.S. is in the midst of a major labor shortage.  People are simply not returning to their jobs.

Why? Well there are many reasons for this but some reasons include not enough money, scheduling issues, concerns over benefits, and concerns over this never-ending Pandemic.

The U.S. is no longer on lockdown and demand for workers continues to escalate, especially for gig workers.

As you would imagine, the need for rides are picking up while delivery demand for packages, groceries, and restaurant orders all continue to soar.

HOWVER….An under the radar NASDAQ company is setting out to flip the “Gig Economy” on its head with a platform that represents a new way to work and connect employers with willing gig workers!

Timing is everything and this company has quite literally emerged at the right time!

WE ARE ISSUING AN IMMEDIATE ALERT ON PIXY!

With exploding revenues already in the millions, no long-term debt, and a platform that could forever revolutionize the gig economy, ShiftPixy, Inc. (PIXY) is a LOW-PRICED NASDAQ company to be watch closely!

ShiftPixy (PIXY) provides a disruptive human capital management platform, revolutionizing employment in the Gig Economy by delivering a next-gen mobile engagement technology to help businesses with shift-based employees navigate regulatory mandates, minimize administrative burdens and better connect with a ready-for-hire workforce.

With expertise rooted in management’s nearly 25 years of workers’ compensation and compliance programs experience, the company adds a needed layer for addressing compliance and continued demands for equitable employment practices in the growing Gig Economy.

PIXY – INCREASING REVENUES + NO LONG-TERM DEBT

PIXY is not just another start up…

The company is already generating multi-millions in Revenues AND has no long-term debt!

Revenues increased 15% to $2.5 million for the 2021 First Quarter compared to $2.2 million for the same period of Fiscal 2020.

The company also reported in the first quarter that it had approximately 88 clients representing over 500 customer locations and 3,400 billed worksite employees (“WSEs”). 

This was an increase of 42% over the same period of Fiscal 2020!

The company’s client list is growing as well as revenues.

PIXY – AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE “GIG ECONOMY”

The gig economy has garnered enormous public attention over the past few years.

Gig workers, if you didn’t already know, are independent contractors, online platform workers, contract firm workers, on-call workers and temporary workers.

Uber, Lyft, Postmates, Instacart, DoorDash, Grubhub.. these are all gig workers.

Digital platforms have become critical, connecting freelancers and companies to contract short-term and frequently asset-sharing opportunities.

This economic model will be vital to reconstruct the country’s economy, and it is expected to reach $455.2 billion by 2023!

In this era of gig economy freelance work, on-demand positions and short term positions are ruling the online job portals.  The reason behind this exponential boost in demand for a temporary mobile job is global digitization.

The amalgamation of mobile apps and the internet has created countless opportunities for people around the globe. Hence, the workforce is becoming more and more mobile these days.

Contingent workers can choose jobs from the comfort of their home and similarly, the employers have a wider pool of job seekers to choose from.

According to MetLife, the number of independent contractors and freelancers, or gig workers, has grown exponentially in recent years. Approximately 30 million Americans are already receiving their primary income from gig work and this number is likely to continue to accelerate!

And why wouldn’t it? More people are looking for work that gives them freedom and flexibility to create their own hours!

Given the labor shortage in the US and as organizations struggle with resourcing work they need to cast a wide net to allow as many people as possible with the right skills engage with them, on their terms.

One solution for businesses to source a wider pool of talent is by offering independent workers certain benefits similar to the benefits offered to their employees.

Imagine direct access to a suite of personalized insurance and other professional benefits for gig workers…

This is what makes PIXY so attractive and could catapult the company to explosive growth territory!

WHY PIXY?

PIXY’s app serves as an all-in-one workforce management platform for operators (aka, business owners) that rely on contingent employees.

But…… it’s also a dynamic employment resource for shifters (aka, part-time workers) who want the freedom to make their own schedule.

Shifters can receive valuable benefits such as health insurance and workers’ compensation. Meanwhile, operators are able to rest easy knowing that they remain compliant with labor laws and free of time-consuming admin tasks.

PIXY’s gig platform truly represents a new way to work and the company has arrived at the perfect time!

PIXY is revolutionizing today’s part-time workforce with an innovative approach to human capital. Its technology deployment balances the needs for business operators who rely on part-time labor and workers who make up the part-time workforce.

ShiftPixy is a powerful platform for leveraging the gig economy forces for both business operators and workers.

PIXY wants to bring efficiency to the part-time labor markets and serves as an all-in-one workforce management platform for operators (aka, business owners) that rely on contingent employees. But it’s also a dynamic employment resource for shifters (aka, part-time workers) who want the freedom to make their own schedule.

Shifters can receive valuable benefits such as health insurance and workers’ compensation. Meanwhile, operators are able to rest easy knowing that they remain compliant with labor laws and free of time-consuming admin tasks.

A solution for operators and business owners:

Access – Connect with a qualified, live, local on-demand workforce

Turnover Cure – Rethink finding and keeping people with an on-demand bench

Shift Risk – Move employer legal, compulsory duties and risk away from your business

Freedom – Liberation from administrative demands

PIXY enables its  operator clients to better connect with today’s part-time workforce. The gig economy is your new competition for part-time workers. The new gig platforms are creating better connections, flexibility and visibility for part time work opportunities.

A solution for Shifters and part-time employees:

Flexibility – Find work when you’re free

Peace of mind – Earn and control a reliable & regular income

Benefits – Access to valuable medical and retirement perks

Convenience – Live, real-time opportunities matched to you

Ease – Simple to use technology to give you the ultimate control of your work life

PIXY was designed to sync work opportunities from job providers with the open time slots of available shift workers.

The platform manages relationships with job providers to take open shift opportunities that are filling their schedules and offer them as work opportunities to qualified workers without the formal job interview and commitments.

Shift workers are able to enroll, profile and prequalify based on their work and training experience for open shift opportunities. Shifters can also earn provider specific qualifications to boost their score and access to more shift opportunities.

“ShiftPixy is in the business of making operators agile. Our biggest lesson in the COVID crisis working with restaurant operators is that to survive your business needs to be agile and able to move quickly to keep your connection with your customers. To rethink your business used to require courage, now rethinking customer engagement, rethinking real estate, and rethinking human capital will be required for survival.” 

Scott Absher, Co-Founder and CEO of PIXY

STAYING AHEAD OF THE CURVE

The ShiftPixy ecosystem also allows businesses to stay on the cusp of employment trends. According to the 2018 and 2019 MBO Partners State of Independence in America Reports, 24% of independent workers used an online platform to find work and 52% of the U.S. workforce will be independent by 2023.

PIXY – WHAT’S NEXT?

Earlier this year PIXY announced exciting special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) plans!

Link to news: finance.yahoo.com/news/shiftpixy-backed-spacs-aim-raise-111143522.html

The company has has revealed that it will be sponsoring SPACs through a newly-created wholly-owned subsidiary.

It was identified as such in a Form S-1 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). This will have it backing the initial public offerings (IPO) of four SPACs.

THE BOTTOM LINE

PIXY is a small-cap flying heavily under the radar on the NASDAQ exchange. This is a big index with major attention on it everyday.

It may be just a matter of time that the stock continues to get more recognized and heads back to previous highs that were seen around this time last year. PIXY was over $6!

2020 showed us just how essential gig workers can be. Employers are scrambling to get employees right now and PIXY may soon become the go-to recruiter for the gig economy!

The company is helping connect employers with willing and happy gig workers with a purpose to bring efficiency to the part-time labor markets.

PIXY has been seeing massive trading volume changing hands this year. With the company’s promising narrative, it may not be much longer that they remain at small-cap levels on Wall Street….

Biden Suffers Worst Approval Ratings Plunge Of Any President Since World War II 

President Biden's job approval rating has fallen the most since the start of his term than any other president since World War II. 

A new Gallup poll was released Friday, polling Americans between Oct. 1-19 shows Biden's approval rating plunged from 56% in Q1 to 44.7% in Q3, a whopping 11.3 percentage points that any president hasn't seen in over 75 years. 

"Biden began his term with relatively solid approval ratings, ranging between 54% and 57% from January through June. His approval dropped to 50% in July and 49% in August as coronavirus infections surged in the U.S. The chaotic U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan in late August, which included the deaths of more than a dozen U.S. military personnel in a terrorist attack at the Kabul airport, was likely the reason Biden's September job approval rating fell further to 43%," Gallup said. 

We noted in June that Gallup data showed Biden's "honeymoon period" was over and said if the president cannot "tame inflation" could result in further rating declines. And, oh boy, were we right...

Biden also faces an increasing disillusionment among Americans that he can't fix the border crisis, snarled supply chains, high gas prices, soaring inflation, consumer goods shortages, and the coronavirus pandemic, among a whole list of other things. 

His ratings suggest no improvement in Democrat support, declining support among Independents, and only 4% of Republicans polled approve of the job he's done - that figure is likely to go to zero if things don't turn around for the president. 

The 88% partisan gap in job approval is extraordinarily high considering Biden campaigned on "unity." During his inauguration, he said: 

"We can join forces, stop the shouting and lower the temperature. For without unity there is no peace, only bitterness and fury. No progress, only exhausting outrage. No nation, only a state of chaos. This is our historic moment of crisis and challenge, and unity is the path forward."

While Democrats are desperately trying to salvage their $3.5 trillion Build Back Better infrastructure plan, Americans are increasingly becoming confused about what exactly that means and how that will affect them. Repbulicans have requested the president to fix broken supply chain before more social spending. 

Souring support suggests Democrats could be on track to lose big in next year's midterms.

Fauci Funded ‘Cruel’ Puppy Experiments Where Sand Flies ‘Eat Them Alive’; Vocal Cords Severed

Fauci Funded 'Cruel' Puppy Experiments Where Sand Flies 'Eat Them Alive'; Vocal Cords Severed

While recent attention has been focused on Dr. Anthony Fauci's National Institutes of Health funding the genetic manipulation of bat coronaviruses in the same town as the bat coronavirus pandemic emerged, a bipartisan group of lawmakers have demanded answers over 'sick' experiments on drugged puppies, according to The Hill.

"Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive," writes nonprofit organization the White Coat Waste Project. "They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies."

As The Hill's Christian Spencer writes:

The White Coat Waste Project, the nonprofit organization that first pointed out that U.S. taxpayers were being used to fund the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology, have now turned its sights on Anthony Fauci on another animal-testing-related matter — infecting dozens of beagles with disease-causing parasites to test an experimental drug on them.

House members, most of whom are Republicans, want Fauci to explain himself in response to allegations brought on by the White Coat Waste Project that involve drugging puppies.

According to the White Coat Waste Project, the Food and Drug Administration does not require drugs to be tested on dogs, so the group is asking why the need for such testing. 

White Coat Waste claims that 44 beagle puppies were used in a Tunisia, North Africa, laboratory, and some of the dogs had their vocal cords removed, allegedly so scientists could work without incessant barking. -The Hill

The concerned lawmakers are led by Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who said in a letter to the NIH that cordectomies are "cruel" and a "reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds." Mace is joined by reps Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), Cliff Bentz (R-Ore.), Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), Rick Crawford (R-Ark.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Scott Franklin (R-Fla.), Andrew Garbarino (R-N.Y.), Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.), Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Fred Keller (R-Pa.), Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Lisa McClain (R-Mich.), Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), Brian Mast (R-Fla.), Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Maria E. Salazar (R-Fla.), Terri Sewell (D-Ala.), Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) via The Hill.

How will Fauci spin this?

COVID-19 pandemic shifted patient attitudes about colorectal cancer screening

Key takeaways Credit: American College of Surgeons Key takeaways A survey of adults eligible for colorectal cancer screening patterns found a preference for at-home fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) versus colonoscopy during the COVID-19 pandemic. Survey.

Key takeaways

Credit: American College of Surgeons

Key takeaways

  • A survey of adults eligible for colorectal cancer screening patterns found a preference for at-home fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) versus colonoscopy during the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Survey respondents reported less use of colonoscopy during the pandemic compared to pre-pandemic levels, with factors related to both COVID-19 infection concerns and the financial strain of having copays.
  • FOBT shows potential as an alternative to screening colonoscopy to improve access to colorectal cancer screening in the context of COVID-19 safety and economic concerns.

CHICAGO: The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patients’ willingness to keep appointments for non-COVID-19 illnesses has been well documented, but a team of researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University report that for people hesitant to come into the hospital or an outpatient center to get a colonoscopy, home-administered fecal occult blood tests (FOBT) may provide a useful workaround tool. About 30 percent more survey respondents completed home-based test during the pandemic than before.

Kristine Kenning, MD, MS, presented findings from a survey of adults age-eligible for screening at the virtual American College of Surgeons (ACS) Clinical Congress 2021. “The key message from our findings is that barriers to screening have increased during the pandemic, and we have to find a way to work with the community to increase those rates,” said Dr. Kenning, chief general surgery resident at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) School of Medicine, Richmond. “Our study found that people are compliant with, and willing to do, home-based fecal occult blood testing. This test provides a very important way for us to increase screening for colorectal cancer.”

The American College of Gastroenterology clinical guidelines recommend colonoscopy for colorectal cancer evaluation and following a positive FOBT with a colonoscopy.1 About 148,000 cases of colorectal cancers are newly diagnosed in the United States each year, the American Cancer Society reports, and they account for 53,000 deaths.2

About the survey

The cross-sectional survey involved 765 people age 50 years and older. Dr. Kenning and colleagues found that their respondents reported a higher completion of stool tests pre-COVID than the American Cancer Society reported,2 32 percent vs. 11 percent. During the pandemic, 50 percent of respondents said they completed the FOBT. By contrast, 44 percent of survey respondents who said they had colon screening during the pandemic underwent a colonoscopy. This practice appears to demonstrate substitution of stool-based testing for colonoscopy, Dr. Kenning noted. 

“Our study looked at attitudes toward colorectal cancer screening and how they were impacted during the pandemic, both related to concerns about the pandemic as well as to economic impacts,” senior author Emily B. Rivet, MD, MBA, FACS, said. “What we learned is that fecal occult blood testing was seen by patients as a viable alternative to conventional screening colonoscopy.” Dr. Rivet is an associate professor in the department of surgery, division of colorectal surgery, and an affiliated professor of internal medicine at VCU School of Medicine.

Patient concerns about copays

Notably, a greater percentage of respondents indicated being unemployed during the pandemic than the year prior: 7.4 vs. 2.6 percent. In addition, 41 percent of respondents expressed concerns about copays; 57.6 percent of those respondents said this was a factor for delaying screening. Dr. Kenning noted that she is working with Carrie Miller, PhD, MPH, the principal investigator of the larger survey, on a follow-up assessment of the pandemic-related impact on attitudes toward colorectal cancer screening. Dr. Miller is post-doctoral fellow with VCU’s department of health behavior and policy.

Other screening delays

Copays were not the only deterrent to getting scheduled colorectal screenings during the pandemic, the study found. Almost two-thirds of respondents—65.9 percent—confirmed concerns about COVID-19 exposure when scheduling colonoscopies; and 59 percent of them said this caused them to delay their screening. 

To address those concerns, respondents endorsed that being offered protective equipment (gloves and masks), visits to smaller offices, or weekend screening appointments would increase their likelihood of following through with the colonoscopy; respectively, 30.7 percent for each of the two former factors and 19.7 percent for weekend screening. However, 48.1 percent of respondents said they were willing to do an at-home FOBT as an alternative to colonoscopy, among whom 93 percent indicated they would be willing to undergo a follow-up colonoscopy if the FOBT was positive. 

Lessons learned from the pandemic

“Even pre-pandemic, the rates for colorectal screening in the United States were very far from 100 percent, so I think the lessons that we are learning from this pandemic and working with patients to find alternatives to what the conventional approaches have been in the past are going to be applicable to care moving forward. This approach applies even if we do eventually enter a post-pandemic state, which is, of course, what we are all hoping for,” Dr. Rivet said.

Dr. Kenning said the survey results show that there is still much work to do to improve colorectal screening. “Colorectal cancer screening has decreased significantly during the pandemic and still hasn’t improved to the rate that it was before,” Dr. Kenning said. “Making sure that we’re offering all of the options to patients is very important so that, whatever form of screening they’re comfortable with, they’ll start down that pathway in order to get the screening they need.”

The survey results also underscore the need to tailor colorectal cancer screening to each patient’s concerns and needs, Dr. Rivet said. “It’s important to have a conversation about all of these different alternatives and what the different positives and negatives are,” she said.

Study coauthors are Dr. Miller and Bernard F. Fuemmeler, PhD, MPH, also with the department of health behavior and policy at VCU; and Jaime L. Bohl, MD, FACS, with the department of surgery at VCU.

“FACS” designates that a surgeon is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.

The study authors have no relevant financial relationships to disclose. The survey was funded as part of a larger survey led by Dr. Miller on colorectal cancer and funded, in part, through support of an institutional training grant awarded by the National Cancer Institute (T32CA093423).
