and that's all for this edition of "dateline." i'm craig melvin. thank you for watching. republicans deliver a political shock wave the take aways from last night's thumping i'm shepard smith. this is "the news" on cnbc virginia, we won this state! >> the republican newcomer knocks out the veteran democrat in virginia, and in new jersey a red streak hits a deep blue state. the historic election night and what it means for both sides in the mid terms and beyond the new claim about the alec baldwin movie set shooting >> who would want to sabotage the set.
>> and what lawyers are suggesting may be the cause. >> aaron rodgers benched after reportedly testing positive for covid. months ago he said this. >> yeah, i've been immunized >> was the quarterback trying to mislead fans prosecutors accuse him o vigilante justice. >> we've got a gun, babe yip >> seeing for the first time the shooting started. >> paid family leave gets a second chance. >> the first kids line up to get vaccinated. and mcdonald's rolls out the mcplant. live from cnbc, the facts. the truth. "the news with shepard smith." >> good evening. what happened to the democrats in virginia last night, that's one thing. i mean, the polls had shown terry mcauliffe might be in trouble that republicans had some momentum in the governor's race there, but in new jersey? no the sitting democrat had an 11-point lead last week in a monmouth poll.
jersey was not in play except almost 24 hours after the polls closed nbc news says it is still too close to call. polls. will we ever learn the incumbent democrat phil murphy was ahead in the polls for months republican jack ciattarelli made some gains, sure, but the polls had murphy winning outside the margin of error. now the race is essentially tied with murphy leading by less than 1 percentage point a recount may be next and who knows after that even if governor murphy does win in new jersey, which looks quite likely, some have already called it political analysts say last night's elections sent a warning to democrats everywhere. in virginia they got a solid beating. gop newcomer glenn youngkin took down the democrat terry mcauliffe and bathed the governor's mansion in red. like the new jersey race
mcauliffe held a steady lead in the polls but his disappeared as election day approached. a year ago that might have seemed impossible when president biden won the state by a whopping 10 points so what's the message to democrats? you're trying to do too much going too far left or you're not getting done what you promised to do. today the president said the defeat shows democrats need to pass some of his agenda before the next elections what happened was i think we have to just produce rut results for them to change their standard of living and give them a little more breathing room insiders will tell you his own sagging popularity might not have hurt and it wasn't just republicans and democrats on the ballot yesterday liberal ideas, too voters in minneapolis rejected soundly a measure to scrap the city's police department a year and a half after a cop murdered
george floyd and nationwide protests ramped up against police brutality eliminating the police force went down in flames the news team coverage tonight larry sabato and kayla tausche first, though, cnbc's rahel solomon in new jersey with the latest on the governor's race. >> reporter: shep, we're here in morris county. an area that voted blue in last year's presidential election for the first time in half a century. but the county has historically voted red and swung back last night in a major way jack ciattarelli won morris count by about 14 percentage points at last count but will counties like this be enough to put him over the edge in a state that has a million more registered democrats than republicans? that's unclear it could be another week before we know. because we still have mail-in
ballots, and those will be counted until about november 8th. if it's still razor thin, we're likely headed for a recount. in new jersey recounts aren't automatically triggered like some other states so in order to request a recount here there has to be reason to believe an error occurred, voting irregularities. but in a state that most consider reliably blue, experts that we spoke to say the reality is actually a lot more nuanced >> new jersey is a lot more purple than people realize we lean right when it comes to fiscal issues and pocket book issues, left when it comes to social issues but the state has some of the most affluent and the least affluent geographic regions in the country and that really shows when we get to our statewide and our local elections. ciattarelli really tuned into that even though republicans are outnumbered two to one in registration by democrats. ciattarelli knew he had to capture independents and swing voters. >> now one thing that both candidates have agreed on, every vote will be counted so stay tuned. shep >> rahel, speaking of every vote counted.
a truck driver, i love this story, a truck driver who reportedly spent about $153 for his entire campaign for the state legislature is leading the long-time incumbent senate president. >> reporter: that is right, shep his name is edward durr. it's a shocking victory for most i think perhaps even according to some local media, the candidate himself. dr. koning said republicans performed better across the state and said the sweeney race may be indicative of the larger trend that we saw here in new jersey, essentially voters voting against the incumbent or the so-called establishment. shep >> i hear you, ra hem. about half of what durr spent, that was at dunkin' donuts. in virginia, the political changes ahead could be extraordinary. kayla tausche is live. kayla? >> reporter: shep, glenn
youngkin's winning formula as a first time candidate is coming into focus, it helped him flip coastal counties, rally rural turnout and consolidate conservative support in northern virginia as democrats regroup on the day after they're hoping hindsight can help in 2022 after the blue tide turned in virginia -- >> we won this state >> reporter: -- a day of reckoning for democrats. >> people are upset and uncertain about a lot of things. >> reporter: but disagreements on how to move forward some lawmakers say pump the brakes on spending. >> let's take time and do it right. let's make sure that people know what's in it people need to know that what we're getting for it, what you're going to expect, how much you're going to pay for it. >> others say rev it up. >> only in washington could people think that it is a smart strategy to take a once in a generation investment in infrastructure and prevent your
president from signing that bill into law and that's somehow a good strategy. >> voters say they want unity and compromise. >> they need to be more vigilant because clearly the path that we're on is not the path that is successful >> the idea was that with the new administration there would be a new enthusiasm in congress and it really hasn't happened. the divisions are still there. >> reporter: in exit polls roughly half of virginians said their vote was a proxy for the presidency that's a sea change from four years ago when 96% of virginia voters from both parties said their motivating factor was donald trump one seat now targeted by the gop's congressional campaign arm, virginia democrat jennifer wexton, along with 69 other races as they tried to retake the house.
as a candidate youngkin cutting more traditional republican profile touting less government, low taxes and republicans are taking that as a sign that in the mid terms and beyond they can run candidates on refined messaging without a direct link to president trump and win shep. >> kayla tausche, thank you. so what happened let's turn to larry sabato, director of the university of virginia center for politics so good to see you the president said what happened is they've got to get their agenda through that is not what last night's winners are saying today what's your take >> my take is the key factor was in fact president biden's low ratings. you can't avoid it i can't see how anyone can deny that the president's ratings sunk badly in both virginiaed cre
mb may have intentionally put a real bullet in the box of dummy ammo on set. >> why would >> i believe that somebody who would do that would want to sabotage the set, prove a point, say they're disgruntled, unhappy. we know that people had already walked off the set the day before. >> the attorneys floated the idea as a possibility they're looking into they did not provide any specific evidence at all to support the sabotage theory. the armorer told investigators she had no idea how live rounds endee director
here's cnbc's valerie cad up on. here's cnbc's valerie castro >> reporter: photos oftographera hutchins show he cinema trog -- cinematographer halyna hutchins, show her surround by crew members >> she genuinely was something special. >> blaine rupert spoke to "good morning america" wednesday he was head of the camera department but quit the day before the accidental shooting citing several concerns including safety on the set. producers have fired back writing looper had nothing to do with or knowledge of safety protocols adding it's truly awful to see some using this tragedy for personal gain. >> yeah, so there's no personal gain in this for me. i have a pretty unique perspective in that it'sa part safety, as the head of the camera department, for protecting the camera, camera operators, knowing what the shot is >> reporter: actor alec baldwin has said little adding, read
this in it she says we had several safety meetings, sometimes multiple per dayr ad never seemt our a.d. never seemed flippant about safety attorneys speaking on behalf of hannah gutierrez reed., a theor should b told savannah guthrie that there was an opportunity for sabotage, a theory they say should be seriously considered. >> we had people who have left the set and walked out because they were disgruntled. we have a time frame between 11 and 1 approximately that day in which the firearms at times were unattended so there was opportunity to tamper with this scene. >> in response to allegations that this was a sabotage, luper tells nbc news, that was an irresponsible and offensive statement. and the production has not responded, shep. >> valerie castro, thank you. jurors were shown a key piece of evidence today in kyle rittenhouse's trial.
it's footage of a man named joseph rosenbaum chasing rittenhouse and throwing a plastic bag at him and then, moments later, rittenhouse shoots and kills him. when people pursue him, he shoots two killing one here's the video frozen just before he throws that bag. there's rittenhouse on the left side and running away and rosenbaum holding the bag and then rittenhouse did not fire the first shot you're about to hear that was fired in the air by another protestor but he did fire the four that you hear after. here we go >> he got a gun, baby. oh, they shot -- oh he shot him. >> rittenhouse's lawyers say that first shot made their client think he was under attack it's a critical piece of evidence when the central question in the whole trial is whether rittenhouse was acting in self-defense.
gabe gutierrez is covering the trial. gabe >> reporter: shep, there is a wealth of video that captured the chaos on the night of the shooting footage played in court today also showed josephe people that rittenhouse shot. toda rosebaum lying on the ground as he was surrounded he was the first of three people that rittenhouse shot. today rittenhouse glanced downward and stared at the desk in front of him as the videos were played. a police detective said he suffered minor injuries. he turned himself in near his home in illinois hours after the shooting shep, as you mentioned, the key question, who started this fight? was it rittenhouse who prosecutors say was drawn to chaos and they tried to paint him as a young vigilante,way over his head. or was it the men who gave chase and tried to attack him? his lawyer says this was clearly self-defense and we're still in the early stages of the prosecution's case rittenhouse faces six charges
including first degree intentional homicide if convicted of that charge, he could face a life sentence and soon we may hear directly from the man rittenhouse shot who survived rittenhouse's lawyers say he himself will testify later in this trial which is expected to last at least two weeks, shep. >> gabe, thank you. spam, it's annoying, isn't it it seems to be getting worse now the fcc is stepping in we'll tell you about the new plan to block billions of robotexts from flooding our phones and what we can all do for ourselves to help cut down on the problem plus, a global push to lower carbon emissions at the u.n. climate summit, but how is the conference itself fighting to go green this year?
hundreds of the world's biggest banks, investors and insurers making a major pledge today at the u.n. climate summit in glasgow more than 450 financial institutions from 45 countries vowing to invest in programsd bs that -- business and businesses that aim to lower carbon emissions. in total, the group controls about $130 trillion in assets. it's one of the biggest commitments made so far at this climate summit, but is the conference itself doing more harm than good in glasgow, here's cnbc's diana olick. >> can i get a cup of coffee please
>> reporter: you've got to give it to cop26. >> am i supposed to reuse the cup all day? >> yes, you can. >> okay. thank you. are people really doing that >> everyone is doing it. >> reporter: they're trying. and it's not just reusable cups. everyone gets a water bottle to fill for the duration. need to charge up? hit a solar powered green booth. even the food. suppliers are based within 100 miles of glasgow reducing the distribution footprint and the food itself, forget the calories, it has a carbon count. the furniture furnished by ikea. a sponsor of cop26 >> so one of the project of bringing the furniture to the cop is not ending within the cop itself we are, as well, working with the city council, as well as with the uk government to donate later all the furniture to the people in need >> reporter: all of that is all good but here comes the not so good 10,000 people, and that's limited by covid restrictions,
are in this venue every day and they came in from all over the world. >> from kenya. i live in kenya. >> reporter: most of them by plane and a lot by private jet there were a plethora of presidential motorcades, and a whole lot of carbon emitting consumption from security to swag, even to the building itself, part of which was put up just to handle the size of the event. and while thousands are attending online, others are choosing not to. >> it's my first time so i needed to understand the entire process and how things are going because it's true that online is not the same. >> reporter: clearly it's a tradeoff holding the event in person creates more visibility, more news coverage and more pressure on all parties to do all they can to save the planet shep >> diana, thanks. quarterback aaron rodgers reportedly positive for covid. now questions about his vaccine status what he said before. how his team is reacting now
all as his backup prepares to make his first start democrats putting paid family leave back into the spending package but every democrat has to be on board, including west virginia's joe manchin. so how do you think that's going? it's next as we approach the bottom of the hour and the top of the news from cnbc. ♪ red roses too ♪ ♪ i see them bloom ♪ ♪ for me and you ♪ ♪ and i think to myself ♪ ♪ what a wonderful world ♪ a rich life is about more than just money. that's why at vanguard, you're more than just an investor, you're an owner so you can build a future for those you love. vanguard. become an owner.
ridiculous spam calls? the one about the car warranty is especially annoying over and over again i don't have a car warranty, stop it. to make matters worse, now they're texting. robo texting it's called and it too is getting worse and worse. in fact, americans are expected to receive a total of 86 billion robotexts or spam texts this year up 55% from last year. that's according to robo killer. now the fcc is stepping in last month the agency announced it will soon look at a proposal to block robotexts mike keegan, he's chief executive officer of transaction network services mike, thanks i feel i've heard all of this before, the government what can they do >> you have heard it before. as you mentioned, robocalling occurred a couple of years ago and now we're facing the same dilemma that we have with
robotexts. there's a lot of tools to protect people from robocalling but the same does not exist for robotexting. what's happening recently is that carriers have allowed application to person messaging from ten digit codes so simply, individuals are allowed to text you from a ten digit code that looks like a phone number and they can do that in large quantities those phone numbers are supposed to be registered but they're not being registered by bad actors >> is there a way for me to block those codes without knowing what they are before they come? >> unfortunately not there's a way through your phone to use the filter like in your settings to be able to do some of that blocking and do some text, but today you can' filtering associated with robotexts. but today you can't necessarily -- there's not a good regime to allow you to block those texts. >> that's certainly not comforting i wish i had more time, thank you.
another sign that our economy is recovering from the covid recession and that's what's topping cnbc's on the money. the fed announcing it's scaling back the bond buying stimulus program that it started in the early days of the pandemic tapering they call it. and it's set to start later this month. the reason well, the fed says in light of the substantial further progress the economy has made since last december. zillow stock taking a big hit. down more than 24% today the company's ceo announced it's closing its home buying an flipping business and cutting 25% of the workforce home buying became too risky and volatile they have hundreds of thousands of homes to sell and zillow is going to take a half a billion dollars in write-downs shares have lost 2/3 of their value since february. and alaska airlines announcing it will no longer serve water in plastic bottles or cups. they're switching to plant-based
cartons and recyclable paper cups the airline expected to save 2 million pounds of single use plastics over the next year. on wall street the dow up 105 the s&p up 30. the nasdaq up 162. i'm shepard smith on cnbc. e it's the bottom of the hour, time for the top of the news covid game changer kids rolling up their sleeves to get the shot what parents need to know. aaron rodgers benched after reportedly testing positive for covid. why his vaccination status is now at the center of a controversy. first, after a brutal election night, democrats under new pressure to pass president biden's agenda >> and house democrats have just made a big move. speaker nancy pelosi announcing today they're making a change, putting four weeks of paid family and medical leave back into their massive social
spending package that's despite resistance from the moderate senator joe manchin of west virginia, a democrat who could single handedly kill the bill in the senate here's how senator manchin reacted. when nbc's ali vitale broke the news to him today. >> house democrats have put paid leave four weeks back into your bill is that something you support? >> i've never heard it. >> nancy pelosi just announced it >> okay. >> hearing that, what do you think? >> that's a challenge. very much a challenge. they know how much i feel about it. >> that's a challenge. >> democrats can't afford to lose a single vote in the senate, and he knows it. if they want to pass it, they have to have his support ylan mui, paid leave is mighty popular, but not with him. >> reporter: well, that's right, shep democrats are now under enormous pressure from grass roots activists to put paid leave back in this package. there have been rallies all week long in new york
near the home of senate majority leader chuck schumer, here in washington, in the cold and drizzling rain, i spoke to one of the women who travelled here to make the case she has three kids family leave is important. but medical leave is also a critical part of this new proposal she said that would have been a life line for her family when her husband was struggling with drug addiction and had to quit his job in the coal mines to get help. >> i was much more worried about losing my kids or like losing my husband to fatal overdose than i was the financial aspect until the financial aspect actually hit us and i was like, well >> reporter: now, i don't know if you can see it, but she is wearing a west virginia sweatshirt there she's trying to get the attention of joe manchin she's talked to him before when he was back home here in d.c. she could only get through to his staff today manchin told reporters that he doesn't want to add to
the national debt or push paid leave through with only democratic support but he's in favor of the idea. vance said her state is struggling and the current system isn't working >> people are having to make those decisions whether to go to treatment or to continue to downspiral in substance use disorder and not having paid leave and being forced to either quit your job or continue working, that is a barrier to treatment and that is a direct barrier to recovery. >> reporter: vance's husband has been sober now for about four years. they're doing fine as a couple and a family he wanted to come to washington with her but he couldn't get time off from his new job. >> ylan mui, thank you. a scene that many parents have long awaited. young kids across the country including these in dallas, indianapolis and hartford now getting vaccinated against covid. the consumer discretionary -- the cdc director approved the
pfizer shot for those age 5 to 11 health experts reassure the benefits of the shot outweigh the risks. president biden calls it a turning point in the fight against covid. >> for parents all over this country, this is a day of relief and celebration. we're going to do everything we can to make these easily available and raise the awareness of the importance of getting vaccinated so parents of children ages 5 and older, please get them vaccinated. >> it's a tough sell sadly in fact, a new survey shows only about 59% of parents plan to get their 5 to 11-year-olds vaccinated that's from the research firm dynata nbc's cal perry spoke to children and parents today >> reporter: shep, 18 months of covering this pandemic, i'vek le never heard doctors speak the way they were this morning calling it a game changer, great day, historic day. smiles on the faces of staff met by families eager to get the first shot we were able to speak to both someone who received the shot, 8-year-old carter and his father, brian.
take a listen. >> i'm halfway there to doing no mask and stuff i couldn't do before. >> knowing that as a community if we do this for each other, that 2022 and beyond will feel normal and you're only a kid for so long i think we owe it to our kids to get things back to the way they used to be so today is a great day. >> reporter: you heard carter if one day he could take off the mask that's something we're hearing from kids who are being vaccinated this could remove some of the other precautionary measures it's certainly why the administration is kicking into high gear this program to vaccinate children 5 to 11 that's why they're talking to pharmacies and doctor's offices. we're hearing this, talk to your child's physician and any holdup that you see this week should be cleared by next week as those vaccines are actually given to both pharmacies, hospitals and doctor's offices shep >> love the smiles, cal. thank you. the nfl's reigning mvp i facing a bit of a controversy
tonight. the green bay packers announced quarterback aaron rodgers will miss sunday's game against the mighty chiefs after the team put him on the league's covid list multiple reports indicate rodgers tested positive for the virus and is not vaccinated. if that is the case, rodgers will not be allowed to return to the team until at least next saturday the packers wouldn't comment on the matter, but here's what aaron rodgers himself said back in august about his vaccination status >> yeah, i've been immunized there's guys on the team tha haven't been vaccinated, it's a personal decision. i'm not going to judge those guys >> he said he's been immunized not necessarily vaccinated against covid. reporters asked the packers' coach today about that comment listen >> do you think that might be misleading to the fans >> that's a great question for aaron. i'm not going to comment on it >> it's important to note, the nfl does not require its players to be vaccinated nor do players
have to publicly declare their vaccination status, but two sources tell the wisconsin state journal aaron rodgers received an alternative treatment earlier this year to try to boost his antibody levels. the sources say rodgers thought it would give him enough protection against covid but the league considered him obviously unvaccinated aaron rodgers reportedly tried to convince the nfl to change the vaccination status but it didn't work. cnbc has yet to confirm that report milwaukee journal sentinel's tom silverstein is here. he's the packers beat writer for the paper. thanks, so much. you were at the press conference today. the league has different protocols for vaccinated players versus unvaccinated players. if aaron rodgers was not vaccinated, as reported, what rules, if any, may have been broken? >> if he's not vaccinated, he's been doing press conferences without a mask on. masks are mandated any time a
player is indoors. we don't know exactly within facility, but he also as far as we know attended -- there were photos on instagram of him attending a halloween party. protocol says you can't be with more than three other players at any time outside of the facility if you're unvaccinated. >> some kind of treatment in advance, do we know anything about that or where it came from what he's talking about? >> no. it doesn't matter, really. the nfl's protocol is negotiated with the players' union. so it's right there in front of him. it says in the document it has to be the moderna or pfizer vaccines or the one-shot vaccine. so it's very specific. there's nothing about antibodies or anything like that in it. >> i'm guessing his teammates
given that it's aaron rodgers, they're probably not saying too much derogatory stuff, right >> no. no they're not going to say it publicly i'm sure there are guys that are really disappointed but publicly they're not going to trash a guy who's going into the hall of fame. >> no. >> is generally the leader of the team, but i would bet there are some guys who feel not betrayed but really let down. >> i listened to the coach's press conference today and he mentioned, for jordan love, what an opportunity. my god, it's the chiefs, you know >> yeah, look at it this way most people were saying the packers after this year, and i agree with that, are going to have to make a decision on rodgers and this is their chance to take a look at jordan love in the midst of a 7-1 season. 7-1 you owe -- you know, they have
some room here they have some wiggle room this is the chance to find out whether this guy could be their quarterback in the future. i'll bet you there are some people in the organization who aren't exactly crying into their coffee >> would have liked to have seen mahomes against rodgers. i don't know thanks, aaron. good of you to be here thanks for your time. the former las vegas raiders receiver henry rugs is accused of driving 156 miles an hour seconds before the cops say he slammed into the back of an suv and killed a 23-year-old woman a prosecutor says rugs' bloo alcohol level was twice nevada's legal limit. he appeared in a wheelchair wearing a neck brace he faces charges of reckless driving, driving under the influence of alcohol if convicted, rugs could face up to 26 years in prison. the crash happened early yesterday morning just a few miles from the vegas strip a prosecutor says cops also found a loaded gun in his car.
the raiders did not wait for the courts to act. the team released him just last night. a judge set his bail at 150 grand with strict restrictions including electronic monitoring. the judge ordered him not to drive, not to drink alcohol and to turn over his passport right away rugs is scheduled to return to court next week. his attorneys say they're conducting their own investigation and they're asking, quoting now, everyone to reserve judgment until all the facts are gathered. some hints from the supreme court today that gun rights may be expanded. justices hearing their biggest gun rights case in more than a decade and it could have major implications for gun regulations all across the country the court's considering whether to strike down a new york gun law. it requires people who want a concealed carry permit to have a special need to carry their gun in public beyond general desire for protection. gun owners sued saying it makes
it virtually impossible for ordinary citizens to get the permit conservatives have a majority on the bench, as you know after two hours of oral arguments today, they suggested the law violates the second amendment. the court will issue its decision, we're told, by late june john deere workers still on strike another contract rejected. what's holding things up as some workers report being pleasantly surprised by the offer that was on the table and mcdonald's cooking up something new. new for them not for the rest of the fast food industry. is mickey d's too late to the grill on this one?
estimated it would only double to 400 by that same year no to 1,000. it's alarming. a senior defense official told nbc news that exceeds expectations but still isn't on par with what the united states' arsenal will look like by the end of the decade. the report also reveals the that china was worried that the united states would start a war. they heightened military exercises as a result and that prompted the then joint chiefs of staff chairman general mark milley to call his chinese counterpart on the phone and explain, "it's not happening, china. when that was first reported, critics said milley circumvented the chain of command but he said the call was routine and party of his responsibilities. we reported on monday that john deere's strike might end with another contract offer on the table. but the majority of more than 10,000 workers rejected it too that extends their strike into a
third week the vote this time, 55% against the contract offer, which is improvement over the 90% of the union members who rejected the first offer last month some workers said they were pleasantly surprised by the concessions in the second contract 10% pay raises across the board, enhanced pension plan, increased lump-sum payments to retiring workers. but others said with john deere in the middle of the most profitable year can it's ever had, the company could afford even bigger increases. no word yet on when they'll return to the bargaining table. the great resignation. we've reported on the growing trend of workers quitting their old jobs during the pandemic but there are still many employees who want or maybe need to stay in their role. so what's it been like for those who stuck around cnbc's senior finance correspondent sharon epperson found out. >> we've lost quite a few people and as a result, there's
increased response ibilities. >> reporter: project manager carol sloan is not alone a new survey from the society of worker management finds more than half the workers who remained on the job after former colleagues left said they had to taken on more work on and responsibilities. >> it's a vicious cycle. employees leave, which means all of their work has to be done by the employees who remain and the employees who remain now say, i'm working too hard. i don't have balance in my life. >> reporter: nearly one-third of workers report struggling to get work done. some are lonely or isolated. others feel less loyal to the organization and more than half wonder if their pay is high enough more resources could ease the burnout. >> in terms of individuals to help with the load, some type of compensation if it's an increase, a spot bonus, the recognition that everyone's working really hard to continue to deliver for the organization >> reporter: better compensation is the reason more than half of
workers said they're searching for a new job, the survey found. while executives say better benefits and career advancement are what workers want most. >> there's this major, major disconnect, which is resulting in us losing employees that we didn't expect we'd lose because we think we're solving for one issue and they're saying it's actually something else. >> reporter: yet that disconnect may give some loyal employees the upper hand. >> this is a great time for them to negotiate for more money, more time off or whatever it is because employers are hearing about this great resignation they are aware of the issue and that's leverage for the employee so they should use that leverage some workers like carol sloan say they stayed in their jobs because they like the roles, the manager or the team. their loyalty may be an advantage. on the other hand, career coaches we talked to say if you believe you're overworked, underpaid and your manager is unresponsive, that may be a clear signal that it's time to go shep >> a lot of people have, sharon, thank you. mcdonald's is apparently
trying to catch up to burger king and its impossible whopper. under the arches now, their own version called the mcplant it's a plant-based vegetarian patty co-developed with beyond meat, and it's here for some people starting today it's available for a limited time at selected restaurants in california, iowa, texas and louisiana. so will this experiment last here's cnbc's kate rogers. >> reporter: the golden arches are trying something new instead of an all-beef patty, this one is made of pea protein. while the rollout is small, just eight restaurants for a limited time, for industry watchers, the mctest of the beyond burger in the u.s. is a sign of the times and changing consumer preferences. >> it means plant based really arrived on main street in the united states. they're an iconic brand and for them to do something means it's they think it's going to work and it also sends a really strong signal to the public that
this is something that's here to stay >> reporter: a recent food survey found 65% of respondents had tried a new plant protein over the last year, with meat alternatives in the lead beyond the health implications of moving from animas well mcdonald's made several moves to improve sustainability includint pro pro prot proteins, environmentalists point to environmental benefits as well. mcdonald's made several moves to improve sustainability including reducing plan ticks in its happy meal toys. and the burger giant is not alone. chipotle reduced 30% of its weight through recycling and composting and shake shack said it's composted more than 32,000 of waste oil. >> this shows they want to be showing broader social responsibility and they're doing everything on their end to make sure they can meet this. >> reporter: once franchisees and the company evaluate performance, the beyond burger could come back in a bigger way at mcdonald's. the company's ceo said the next few quarters will determine if
