1. Retailers scale back hiring as worry about a slowdown grows -

NEW YORK (AP) — After going on a frenzied hiring spree for a year and a half to meet surging shopper demand, America's retailers are starting to temper their recruiting.

The changing mindset comes as companies confront a pullback in consumer spending, the prospect of an economic downturn and surging labor costs. Some analysts suggest that merchants have also learned to do more with fewer workers.

2. Time for a money checkup: 4 items to examine -

Much can happen in six months. That’s why, as we close out the first half of the year, it makes sense to check in on your financial life.

“With inflation, I think people this year are more heavily impacted than they probably have been in many years leading up to this point,” says Jason Dall’Acqua, a certified financial planner and founder of Crest Wealth Advisors in Annapolis, Maryland. “So it’s a good time to see how things have been going ... as well as plan for what lies ahead in the remainder of the year.”

NEW YORK (AP) — Americans at the low end of the income rung are once again struggling to make ends meet.

NEW YORK (AP) — Stocks ended broadly higher on Wall Street Wednesday after minutes from the Federal Reserve's most recent meeting signaled the central bank intends to move "expeditiously" to raise interest rates back to more neutral levels in its fight to tame inflation.

6. Sneakers, elastic pants: People alter office wear amid COVID -

NEW YORK (AP) — Blazers in knit fabrics, pants with drawstrings or elastic waists, and polo shirts as the new button-down.

Welcome to the post-pandemic dress code for the office.

After working remotely in sweats and yoga pants for two years, many Americans are rethinking their wardrobes to balance comfort and professionalism as offices reopen. They're giving a heave-ho to the structured suits, zip-front pants and pencil skirts they wore before the COVID-19 pandemic and experimenting with new looks. That has retailers and brands rushing to meet workers' fashion needs for the future of work.

7. This year, resolve to leave no more gift cards unused -

Years ago, a friend who needed cash sold me a $100 Nordstrom gift card. I wish I knew where the heck I put it.

Gift cards are a popular holiday solution, especially recently, as supply chain disruptions and shipping delays have made gift buying more challenging. Most gift cards are spent within a year, but billions of dollars remain unspent, and about 1% to 2% of gift card dollars typically go unused, says Amy Dunckelmann, vice president of research operations for Mercator Advisory Group, a global payments consultant.
