abouting much longer as hollywood braces for shutdown. the film industry representing 60,000 film workers threatening to go on strike first thing monday if they don't reach a deal by then at studios, production on most television shows and films will come to a grinding halt the looming strike after months of failed negotiations the union wants more money and better working conditions for its members. >> this furious demand for product and the insatiable consumer appetite, and it's at a pace that's unsustainable and being carried around on the backs of workers. >> if its union strikes, its members will be among the 100,000 american workers either striking now or preparing to but hollywood's movement would be among the most visible. while the union members worked behind the scenes, they're backed by big names in front of the camera samuel l. jackson throwing his support behind the group, posting on instagram, lines in the sand
ia solidarity. other stars including jane fonda, mindy kaling, kerry washington all public with their backing. "variety" reports networks and streaming services are scrambling to line up other pamming for a world where everything shuts down. the plan now, fill the schedule with reruns and shows from other markets. the founding partner of punk news and former editor at the hollywood reporter here now. matt, we are seeing these strikes play out everywhere, more money, better treatment. >> absolutely, and hollywood is not different. keep 23450i7in mind this is not or writers or directors, this is the below-the-line people, rank and file editors and gaffers and even sound people who bring these to life and don't get a lot of attention. >> say they strike on monday, practically speaking, what happens? >> the industry shuts down
because it's not just this guild. the other guilds will likely fall in line the writers are not going to cross the picket lines, actors will not cross the picket lines. so for all intents and purposes it will shut hollywood down, tens of thousands of jobs, hundreds of millions of dollars at stake here and a delay in movies and tell vigts, which will ultimately reach the consumer. >> the workers have been saying we've been waiting a long time for leverage and finally we have it are they right, or can the studios and networks afford to drag this out, maybe go shoot stuff in canada or somewhere >> i think they are right to a certain except because we're seeing a moment in this country where the balance of power is shifting a little bit towards the workers. there aren't enough people in a lot of these cases to fill the job. they absolutely need these people and we're at a time, the so-called streaming wars, where netflix and everything else is providing this insatiable demand for new content on all of these new platforms.
there's a lot of opportunity there but there's also a lot of demand for these workers so if they go on strike, it's going to be a huge problem. >> you mentioned netflix it looks like netflix might be the least affected >> they are one of them, but they are leading the market here they have been one of the biggest buyers of content and everybody else is trying to catch up to netflix. so what they do, everyone tries to catch up with, and this is essentially creating this demand that is trickling throughout the rest of the industry. >> matt bellny, punk news. good to see you, thank you yesterday, moderna, today johnson & johnson. an fda advisory panel voted unanimously to recommend boosters for the nearly 15 million of us who got a j&j shot the panel supported giving adults a second dose, at least two months after their first shot experts went with two months instead of six this time because they said the results were
stronger with j&j after two months it's a different tlooinl than the within for pfizer and moderna. advisers recommend offering boosters for people who got those vaccines after six months. j&j's shot had its ups and downs during this year u.s. regulators had to temporarily pause the rollout so they could investigate reports of blood clotting simpson studies showed the shot offered really less protection compared to other vaccines. it's all caused widespread debate about whether people who got the j&j shot would be better off with a pfizer or moderna booster. cnbc's meg tirrell covers health and science for us what do the advisers have to say about mixing and matching, meg >> shep, it's clear many of them report the flexibility in boosting a cdc representative made that point, that being able to switch brands is really important from a public health perspective, like going into a nursing home to boost residents' protection with just one vaccine type, for example. what's not clear is what the fda
would will do with those recommendations at this point. the data on mixing and matching boosters came from a small nih trial that looked at the antibody responses and safety of all of the different vaccine combinations we heard earlier this week the results suggest giving a pfizer or moderna folk boost to folks who originally got j&j was better than giving those folks a second j&j shot. but the fda said it has not had time to review the data and advisers did not vote on it today. so it's unclear where the agency will include that flexibility in the decision on the boosters, which is expected to issue in about a week the cdc advisers are scheduled to meet on covid boosters thursday the committee also talked about increasing flexibility for the pfizer and moderna booster as well, which are now only recommended for high-risk groups beige, health condition or setting. based on new data from israel, they discussed broadening eligibility to everyone over age 40 or 50
they didn't have that same cutoff for j&j they recommended a second dose for everyone and many of the advisers even making clear they don't even necessarily consider it a booster vaccine scientist dr. paul offit saying, quote, i think this frankly was always a two-dose vaccine. as two doses two months apart was shown to increase vaccine efficacy for j&j more than 90%. >> 90%, that's a number, meg thank you. there's a deadline in chicago for all city workers to be vaccinated, every one of them and it's just hours away now and what a throw-down. the city's mayor and local police union are still in a tense standoff today the mayor here, lori lightfoot, fired a lawsuit against her own police union and its president after he told cops, just ignore the vaccine mandate. the mayor's accusing him of inciting an insurrection >> what we've seen from the fraternal order of police, in particular the leadership, is a lot of misinformation, a lot of half truths and, frankly,
flat-out lies in order to induce an insurrection. and we're not having that. >> here we go. the police union responded by filing lawsuits of his own against the city, against the mayor and against the police superintendent city officials say if the cops don't show proof of vaccination, they will be put on unpaid leave. the mayor says that won't happen this weekend because she said it will take a few days to confirm who's vaccinated and who's not it's unclear how many cops will defy the city's mandate but the governor of illinois is offering up the national guard in case there's a massive chicago police no show. new today -- the white house says foreign travelers can visit the united states starting november 8th, but only if they're fully vaccinated with shots approved by the world health organization. it's encouraging news for friends and families who have been separated all this time, since the u.s. closed its borders to much of the world last year. many business leaders are pretty jacked too because this could change their monetary lives. the white house says it applies
to travelers from 33 countries, including the uk, china, brazil, ind india, south africa and almost all of the eu. earlier this week the biden administration announced vaccinated people from canada will be allowed to enter the u.s. starting next month. former bill clinton is staying in the hospital overnight and all health indications are trending in the right direction. that's the new and latest update from the former president tonight. an adviser spoke to mr. clinton on the phone and said he's doing fine and could be released soon. a source tells nbc news that he had a unary track infection that spread to his blood system, and that can be dangerous. l he's being treated with antibiotics. he felt overly fatigued whether arriving for a foundation event tuesday night. mrs. clinton is by his side at the former uc center

counts of murder and 17 counts of attempted murder. the state's attorney's office and even circuit court judge expressed surprise at the timing of this. the state attorney's office say there was no negotiation going on, they were not planning on offering a plea deal while this would move the guilt portion away there's still a death penalty proceeding manuel lost his 17-year-old son joaquin, who was struck four times in a hallway. >> my son the way he died, he received four shots with an ar-15. so the death penalty is fair it's not even close whatever the punishment they apply to this guy. i think this guy deserves the death penalty. >> for linda schulman, whose son was a teacher at stoneman douglas high school, it's an agonizing process just to hear the words guilty now she's worried about the time
frame of the capital punishment. >> the average is 18 years to the end of a death penalty case. i want closure i want closure i want to be alive when this case is over. >> a jury of 12 people would have to unanimously decide on the death penalty for that to happen the judge assigning dates in november and december to begin that portion of the proceedings. shep, back to you. >> sam brock, thank you. federal investigators say a capitol police officer tried to help a january 6th rioter cover up evidence to avoid arrest. now a grand jury has indicted that officer on charges he obstructed justice the feds say officer michael riley exchanged dozens of facebook messages with the suspect after the insurrection, telling him, delete all of your photos and videos on social media, the ones that you show you inside the capitol building. in one of the messages officer riley allegedly wrote, hey, i'm a capitol police officer who agrees with your political stance take down the part about being in the building. they're currently investigating and everyone who was in the building is going to be charged.
just looking out officer riley is a 25-year veteran on the force he was once named national officer of the month because he saved a fellow cop's life with cpr. the capitol police chief says he's now on administrative leave. riley has not yet entered a plea he's facing two counts of obstruction. each count carries the maximum of 20 years in prison. counterterrorism officers are now leading the investigation of a brutal stabbing death of bra british lawmaker investigators say a member of parliament was meeting constituents of a church in the southeast of england when a man with a knife walked in and stabbed the mp again and again police arrested a 25-year-old. the motive, they say, unknown. alex rossi reports from our sister network sky news in the uk >> reporter: this video, filmed by a member of the public, shows the moment as police arrived just after midday.
inside the methodist church, they found sir david amess he had been stabbed multiple times whilst meeting members of the public eyewitnesses described what happened next. >> at that point a load of police turned up, armed police you can see in there an ambulance as well as police helicopter i saw the suspect come out of the building he got put into a police van and got taken away and then they're closing the whole road off and pushing the traffic back down the road from what we heard it was david amess and he's been stabbed. >> reporter: an air ambulance arrived minutes later. d but despite the efforts of paramedics, the 60-year-old died at the scene. >> this is horrifying. this sort of thing doesn't go on around here and to have something like sir caved was such kmasuch a committed mp to e area. >> reporter: sir david was an mp
for 38 years he was wildly admired and respected. there is an overwhelming sense of shock in this community as you can imagine, the police presence is still very strong. but down here, past the cordon, inside the church where the attack took place, investigators are still gathering evidence this attack has once again raised huge issues about the level of security for politicians. and many questions remain unanswered about what police have described as a shocking and utterly despicable attack. but sadly, this is the second member of parliament to be killed in the last five years. alex rossi, sky news, league-on-sea. there's a bloody, grim and terrible trend emerging right now in afghanistan yet another massive suicide bombing at a mosque has killed dozens of innocent worshippers this time the blast was in the southern city of kandahar.
the taliban's police commander said the attack killed more than 50 people and wounded at least 100 others a local reporter tells reuters eyewitnesses saw not one, but three suicide bombers blow themselves up. this is the second time in a week that terrorists have attacked a mosque during friday prayers. a letter of reprimand and $5,000 docked from his kmak, that's the sentence a military judge handed down today for the marine who openly criticized the u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan. >> i have been fighting for 17 years. i am willing to throw it all away to say to my senior leaders, i demand accountability. >> that was part of the video that initially got lieutenant colonel stu sheller in trouble then he refused orders to stop posting and the military locked him up in the brig at his court marshal, sheller pleaded guilty to all charges against him, including dereliction of duty and failure to owe buy command the head of the navy will be the
one to decide what sort of discharge sheller will receive there's a sans dimock on the way, meaning no people if you think the current labor shortage is bad, hang on, experts say it's about to get extreme. the reasons why next and remember this? might have been one of your first cell phones, i don't know ho could play snake, hold a charge
we've been presenting a series of reports on our lost workers. you're here for the finale the labor shortage isn't going anywhere, and according to a new report, it may get worse in the months and years to come even after the pandemic ends cnbc's kate rogers reporting kate, you took a deep dive through the data in this what are some of the big takeaways? >> well, shep, the report isn't pretty and there are several factors set to worsen this crisis, according to these researchers. baby boomer retirements, an extra 1 million boomers have been projected to be pushed into early retirement according to numbers and there's not enough x-workers to fill boomers' shoes. boomers had an average of 1.8 kids and younger generations have preferences for the type of work and careers they're looking for. many while millennials are worse
off than their parents, they also point to the massive amount of tax some stand to inherit from their parents, $68 trillion by the year 2030, giving them more financial freedom to make decisions about the kind of work they do and don't want to do we have talked a lot about the women who left the workforce over the last year, but primary men ages 25 to 34 have been exiting for decades going from 38% of the workforce in the 1980s and 34% in 2019. the opioid epidemic also hit them very hard and others are living with parents in higher numbers with preference for part-time work and one issue said some men are just flat-out not working and gen z part-time work increased finally, the future workforce will be smaller due to falling birth rates, which saw a severe decline in nearly 50 years last year researchers say the talent shortage will only compound with
the reality moving ahead, shep. >> listen to you with all of the good news. kate rogers, thank you. bitcoin goes mainstream. your chance to get a piece of the action without actually owning it. wrapping up another week in the incredible trial of elizabeth holmes jurors learning about the unusual recruitment process to work at theranos and a member of the very inner circle spills and college football fans gear up and pack a stadium health experts feared they would be superspreaders. tonight, the results are in, as we approach the bottom of the hour and the t
crypto watch the price of bit cocoin up neary 60% today and trading north of $60,000 a coin for the first time since april the world's biggest cryptocurrency up 40% this month and approaching its record high of $65,000 all of this is happening as investors are anticipating the sec will give the green light to the first-ever bitcoin's futures etf. an etf tracks the performance of one or more asset in the market. it let's people diversify without actually owning those assets on their own. on the major mile for crypto, here's cnbc's senior markets
correspondent bob pisani. >> shep, kboint enthusiasts and etf industry are bracing for the start of trading for the first bitcoin futures etf on tuesday when the pro shares bitcoin strategy etf is scheduled to begin trading at the new york stock exchange the he etf is based on futures contract, so when you buy this etf, you don't own bitcoin but a future tracking bitcoin. some are disappointed for a bitcoin futures etf but not one that owns physical bitcoin but the serk chairman said he has concerns approving a bitcoin pure etf now because he doesn't have regulatory control over many parts of the crypto business, like crypto exchanges and he's concerned about fraud and theft and manipulation on those exchanges. the bitcoin futures market, however, is already regulated and because there is no physical
ownership of bitcoin on those futures exchanges, there's far fewer concerns about fraud and theft. now, while some are disappointed that a full-fledged bitcoin etf is not imminent, most in the crypto and etf community seem happy with half a loaf rather than none at all and this is a very big moment for the crypto community even a bitcoin futures etf would make bitcoin more widely available to the investing public it's a baby step but it's a big one. shep >> bob pisani dropping cnbc stuff. thank you, sir who's richer than bill gates and warren buffett combined? that's what is stopping cnbc's "on the money. elon musk's network is now $230 billion. that's as much as the microsoft founder and oracle of omaha's money put together that stat from the billionaire's

shaquille brewster. >> shep, there's definitely been a change in the responsible of big crowds in stadiums like the one behind me. at the beginning of the season as the delta variant was surging across the country, there were concerns these events would turn into superspreader events but if you look at the numbers now, cases, hospitalizations and deaths are all down. doctors much less concerned. an epidemiologist at the university of florida explaining to me our understanding of the virus is evolving and sometimes leads to more cautious guidance. >> we prefer to learn by studying but i say in this case, we probably learned a little bit by doing as well it's not a matter of trying to keep people from doing activities, it really is a matter of trying to figure out, can these be done safely >> reporter: they point to these events being outdoors and increase immunity from people who both got vaccinated and those who got the virus as this was making its way through the younger populations. i'll tell you, fans who are attending these games, they say they're excited to be back. >> feels like things are back.
>> was there ever any concern coming back, especially last month when we were talking about the delta variant? >> there was concern coming back to it but my point is like if i'm inside around a lot of people, i'm going to wear my mask but tend of the day we're all outside. we're all having fun. >> reporter: shep, the doctor said key distinctions are these are in open-air stadiums things could change and they're still encouraging masks once things move back inside. shep >> shaq brewster, thank you. class in session, but for many kids, this school year looks a lot different than it used to. that's because the pandemic pushed a lot of families to consider alternatives to traditional public education according to the data from the national alliance for public charter schools, more than 1 million students left public school districts last year meanwhile, nearly 240,000 kids went to charter schools. that's nearly a 10% jump in enrollment from the year before. so will that trend continue after covid, if there is such a time here's cnbc's ylan mui.

new leverage. >> the idea of putting our kids back in the box that frankly wasn't working well in pre-pandemic times, it's just not going to happen for us. >> reporter: in birmingham, katrina moved her son evan after growing frustrated with his school's plans to deal with covid. at i-3, he can attend school in person, virtually or hybrid. oven opted for two days at home and three in the classroom. >> all of my teachers were thinking outside the box and giving me new ways to learn. >> reporter: and after making it this far, his mom said they're not switching again. >> my son will continue and i'm proud to see he will be in the graduating class of 2028. >> reporter: and it's not just charter schools that saw surging enrollment, private school, home schools, micro schools all got more popular too shep, the range of options is broader than ever before. >> thank you so much. we're halfway through the closely watched criminal trial of the theranos founder
elizabeth holmes she's charged with conspiracy and fraud over claims she made about her company's blood testing machine, which as it turned ut, didn't work jurors learned this week of alleged internal problems at theranos too the company hired a new lab director in 2014, lab director, except the recruiting process was a little unusual the former director testified he was actually the longtime dermatologist for the theranos president. he said throughout his nearly one-year stint, he visited the lab twice and worked a grand total of ten hours in one year according to prosecutors, that's not where the issues end on the stand today, a member of holmes' inner circle, who testified that he unwittingly became part of what prosecutors called a brazen fraud. here's cnbc's scott cohn >> reporter: daniel edland was about as inside as a theranos insider could get, recruited by elizabeth holmes' brother christian, a classmate at duke
he helped manage the relationship with walgreens, which invested millions to put theranos testing into its stores eventually he would report directly to holmes but he testified that even he was initially unaware of what o prosecutor say was theranos' deep, dark secret. rather than analyzing blood stick analysts on the home devices technology that was supposed to revolutionize health care, the company was using third party equipment. he said he didn't learn until two years later in 2016 that technology demonstrations he was staging for potential business partners, demonstrations directed in part by holmes herself, were a charade. he said he resigned because he no longer believed that the company was able to stand behind the claims it was making. >> did theranos bake its technology demonstrations? >> was he up there telling lies today? >> reporter: the defense denied
holmes was involved in any fabry and more to the point, they say, she truly believed in the technology, still does to this say, and the fact that it failed, they say, is not a crime. daniel evans will be back on the stand for more next week shep >> scott cohn, thank you. just in to cnbc from the white house tonight, president biden said he supports prosecution for those who defy congressional subpoenas. that would include steve bannon, the former adviser to then-president trump bannon is defying a subpoena for testimony and documents from lawmakers investigating the insurrection a spokesperson for the justice department just responded and said, the doj makes its own independent decision the january 6th committee will vote tuesday to recommend a criminal contempt of congress charge against steve bannon. that vote, 7:30 tuesday night. live coverage here on the news. an alarming rise of guns at
