Roseville, CA...Before the lockdown left took a wrecking ball to our economy last year, we were enjoying one of the greatest expansions of economic opportunity in our lifetimes.  Unemployment was at its lowest rate in 50 years, the poverty rate was at its lowest in 60 years.  Wage growth was the strongest in 40 years.  The wage gap was narrowing for the first time in many years, as blue-collar wages increased dramatically.  The unemployment rate for women was the lowest in 70 years.  For African Americans, Hispanic Americans and Asian Americans, veterans and disabled Americans, and those without a high school diploma, unemployment was the lowest ever recorded.

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/05/2021 08:09 AM
Sacramento, CA...California Teachers Association President E. Toby Boyd issued the following statement on the passage of Assembly Bill 86 by the California Legislature: “CTA’s priority is the safety of our students, their families, educators and school staff. We recognize the efforts of state lawmakers in designating vaccine supply for educators who have been in schools and for those heading back. Getting educators and school staff the vaccine is key to safely reopening for in-person instruction and protecting students and their families. The $4.6 billion to support student learning is also essential and allows school districts to dedicate the time and resources to equitably support the social and emotional needs of students and target a whole-child recovery.

Sender's Market's Weekly Ad & Grocery Specials Through March 9th. Shop Local & Save!

Posted by: thepinetree on 03/04/2021 10:49 AM
Mountain Ranch, CA...In 1950, we started out as a family operation with Erich’s father and mother, August and Freida Sender, in a century-old adobe building. The upstairs was home to the Sender family, and the first floor included groceries, a meat market, a bar, and a small eating place called Opa’s Smokehouse. On Christmas morning in 1968, the old store was destroyed by fire. But in June 1969, Sender’s Market, Inc. was opened. Since that time, there have been many changes, including remodeling, expansion, and the addition of many employees. That’s also when we added the truss plant and purchased Sender’s Market Ace Hardware in Valley Springs. Today, we're still family owned and still working hard to stock everything from pantry essentials to power tools. Whether you've got questions about the perfect cut of meat or the right kind of paint, our helpful, knowledgeable staff has you covered.  Click on images below for larger versions
