2021.10.25 13:02 jesrf How to Calculate COLA -
This came up in a thread over the weekend and I told them I would post back today, I’m also putting it here in case anyone else is interested.
The cola is based on a report (called a series by the Bureau of Labor Standards (BLS). BLS tracks inflation and all kinds of data on prices and earnings. The series number for NALC (and I think all Postal) COLA is CWUR0000AA0
The series title is “all items old base in U.S. City average, urban wage”
The old base means 1967=100
If you wanted to look this up you would go to
Then click on “databases”
From here there are several ways u can do this. The easiest way is to scroll down and click “series report” and then Type in the series report number up above “CWUR0000AA0” click next. Then in the next page click retrieve data.
Once you get that chart you’ll see the cpi number for each month (September is 801.524 in other words prices have gone up about 8x since 1967)
For Cola our raises are based on the change in this number over time, specifically every six months - Feb to July and Aug. thru January. The numbers always come out about two weeks after the end of the prior month. The next release date is November 10th, here’s a calendar to all the release dates upcoming - https://www.bls.gov/schedule/news_release/cpi.htm
So in Jan of 2021 the CPI-w was 760.447, the July number was 797.661. An increase of 37.214 so each point of increase = $51.969 annual increase or about 2.5 cents an hour. The JCAM states that each .4 point increase equals a one cent an hour increase.
Historically, the bigger increase is the feb-July because of summer driving fuel price increases.
As of the sept data the cpi-W stands at 801.524 an increase of 3.863 or just under ten cents an hour (all COLA raise calculations are for the top step or all of table one- thanks Shyam Das). If I had to guess, the next COLA will be 30-35 cents an hour, next August probably 70 cents but it’s a total guess. If gas craters to $2.00 or something don’t expect much, and now that summer is over I expect it to fall back, but ymmv. I also believe rents are a big factor in calculating the CPI-W but not sure in how much. Over 25 years of watching this thing the biggest driver has always been fuel.
Can the number go down ? Yes. In august of 2008 the CPI-W stood at 641.155. The following month the great financial crisis hit and with it deflation, gas went from $3.50 to 89 cents a gallon. You do not “lose” pay when this happens, you just don’t get another COLA until it goes back up, after 2008 CPI-W did not get above until January of 2011 when it hit 644.591. So the COLA was zero for over two years.
See article 9.3 of the JCAM for more, they describe it as 1 cent for each .4 point increase in the cpi-w which equals 2.5 cents per hour per point. Looking in a 2001-2006 contract I had laying around the formula for the cola at that time was the same .4=1 cent which this seems weird to me as you think as our pay increase COLAs should as well but the formula is what it is.

2021.10.25 13:02 TheNextChapters Where can men get emotional support?
I've been hesitant to write this for a while because, as a man, I need to put up that macho persona. But that clearly isn't helping me and I'm ready to say "f ** k everyone else's expectations."
As a man, I find it very hard to get emotional support. My family doesn't give it. They would say they do, but oddly, I often feel worse after talking with any of them. So it's best that I don't even try. Most of my guy friends are of the "shut up and just drink a beer" mentality. Either that or they have younger kids with, understandably, take up most of their empathy. I've been burnt really bad in a couple of relationships with women so I'm hesitant to go there. The last time one hurt me I felt the effects from it for well over a year. So I never wanted to give one person that much control over my happiness again.
Ultimately I feel like I need a big support group so I'm not relying on (or burdening) just one or two people. But these days it feels difficult to even get those initial few people.

2021.10.25 13:02 leon95 Petition to change Hero of the People
I have just checked eternalwarcry.com and Hero of the People is not a Hero Unit, which I believe should be changed, since Heroes get this shiny new tag on their cards in Cold Hunt.
Why I believe she should become a Hero and get the wonderful new tag among other heroes? All Heroes are either Rare, Legendary or Promo cards. She would be the only Uncommon Hero and it would fit perfect in flavor, because she is the Hero of the People. The common and uncommon folk. She is a Hero for those who can not. She is everyone's Hero. Our hero.
P.S. If you think all Heroes need to have a given name, good old bandit queen is a Hero Unit and a bit too shy to tell us her name.

2021.10.25 13:02 Throwaway_goldie I know it’s stupid to quit one job before you secure another but I’m losing my mind
background info: I (24f) received my bachelors degree in dec 2020. I’ve been working from home with my company since the day after I graduated.
To keep things simple, I can tell I’m being pushed out/on the verge of being fired. Surely I am to blame for some of the stress I’ve had from work but I’ve gotten to the point where I truly don’t give a fuck about anything.
I’m essentially spending my entire day on my phone (which I know is a whole other issue) avoiding work when I can. There isn’t work to be done that isn’t getting done, I just hate my job so much. Hate my tasks/responsibilities/manager.
My fiancé (27m) and I are about to make a very unexpected move back to where I grew up. He has a good work opportunity that randomly came up and we can live in a big empty house with my dad rent free for a few months so we might as well take the opportunity to save/pay off debt now while we can.
I have an extremely solid job lead where we will be moving. I know I sound crazy but I’m fairly confident I can get this job. Part of me really wants to quit my job right now and tell my family I got fired if they ask. My fiancé would be (understandably) upset if I quit right now so obviously I don’t want to cause issues with him.
I need to know if I should let my insanity suffer and wait until I have this other job or say frick it and quit. I don’t know how much of a financial set back it would be if I quit right now… I don’t want to be irresponsible but I also am at my wits end

2021.10.25 13:02 Count_On_Me_Bro 25M Seeking long term online buddies to talk, vent, gossip, chat and spend some quality time together
Hey, I'm a 25-year-old guy who loves to getting acquainted with a new person. I'm not into small talks and loves to have long conversations where people can actually get to know each other. I'm more than capable of having a decent conversation. I'm a huge fan of voice calls or voice notes. Because I believe that hearing one's voice is essential for developing deep connections. I understand that some people do not like the idea of calling a stranger, right after few talks. So I'm fine with chatting too.
And I'm also looking for a long-term friendship so if we get along with each other, I'll stick around. Besides, I'm a good listener and non-judgemental person. Additionally, I love to watch documentaries about space and natural sciences. I regularly follow celebrities, models, their bold outfits (For some reason I always seem to like what Bella Hadid wears) and bold cosplay, etc. If you are into these we could discuss which of their outfits would potentially suit you the most. I'm also a fan of fantasy sports, especially football (soccer) I regularly watch English premier league. I started watching NBA from last year and really am excited for my first ever NBA fantasy basketball. It'd be cool if you give me a few advice about fantasy basketball.
Additionally, I do like to research anything interesting. I'm also into movies, TV shows, and music. I do play games often. Professionally, I am also a research assistant so if you are into these boring stuff, I am the right guy for you haha. Do you think we might click?
