Asian shares edge up in cautious trade, U.S. jobs data in focus

Yahoo Business - 2 horas 27 mins ago

By Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares edged up in early trade on Thursday, but gains were tempered by weak U.S. private sector employment and manufacturing data that raised concerns ahead of Friday's key employment figures. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was up about 0.2 percent in cautious trade, shrugging off modest overnight losses on Wall Street. On Wednesday, the ADP National Employment Report showed that U.S. private employers added 189,000 jobs last month, falling well short of economists' expectations for a rise of 225,000 jobs.

U.S. judge orders temporary block of Allegiant Air pilot strike

Yahoo Business - 3 horas 19 mins ago

Allegiant Travel Co said after the court order that it expects all flights on Thursday to operate as scheduled, avoiding a strike that could have snarled the travel of more than 33,000 customers ahead of a holiday weekend. Allegiant sued the pilots union in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas on Monday, saying it had violated the Railway Labor Act by moving to strike before the parties had exerted every effort to settle their disputes. The pilots union, Airline Professionals Association Teamsters Local 1224, has until Monday to respond to Allegiant's claims, the ruling said. "With the threat of an imminent strike over, Allegiant hopes that both parties can now focus on the next federally mediated negotiating session, scheduled for late April," the company said in a statement.

Morgan Stanley boosts CEO pay to $16 million in 2014: filing

Yahoo Business - 3 horas 51 mins ago

Morgan Stanley's board boosted Chairman and Chief Executive James Gorman's compensation by one-third last year, saying the bank's performance was "strong" but had "room for continued progress," according to its proxy filing on Wednesday. Using another calculation set by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission which includes restricted awards from prior years and perks, Gorman received $23.3 million in 2014, up from $14.4 million the prior year. It bases Gorman's pay on how well Morgan Stanley achieved objectives from shareholder returns to cost cutting. Colm Kelleher, one of two top business executives under Gorman who oversees trading and investment banking, received a special $2 million bonus last year.

McDonald's raising average worker wage to about $10 an hour

Yahoo Business - 4 horas 4 mins ago

McDonald's Corp plans to raise the average pay of about 90,000 U.S. workers to around $10 an hour, but the increase will not benefit workers at the vast majority of the restaurants, because they are operated by franchisees, who make their own wage decisions. Workers groups said the move by McDonald's, which is also adding benefits such as paid vacations, fell short of their goals. McDonald's, which announced the increases on Wednesday, has been fighting weak traffic and slumping sales in the United States. Starting wages at the restaurants will move to $1 above the locally mandated minimum wage.
