Massachusetts-based Market Basket hosts a job fair on Monday in response to employees protesting the firing of CEO Arthur Demoulas — The company is looking to replace said employees. Plus, the VA reform bill crossing President Barack Obama’s desk has a new benefit for veterans looking to attend college — public universities receiving G.I. money must charge in-state tuition for all vets. So who wins and who loses in this new set-up? And municipal bonds are the sort-of boring financial tool that big institutional investors use to hedge their bets. But this week, the city of Denver is hoping to attract a totally different class of buyers for its bond sale. The city is selling $500 “mini-bonds” to state residents, as a way to get locals literally invested in the community.
