According to a report from Indeed, educational requirements are gradually disappearing from job postings. In the month of January, less than one in five roles shared on Indeed's site required a four-year degree. Cory Stahle, Indeed Hiring Lab Economist, joins Yahoo Finance to discuss what the shift from education to skills requirements signals for job seekers and the broader job market. Stahle explains the phenomenon isn't limited to a particular sector, but follows an unexpected trend: "It's been really across all sectors but it has been most notable in the areas where education requirements have typically been the highest. There's more opportunity to reduce requirements where those requirements have been higher. But it was really notable that we had over 80% of the sectors we look at reduce their requirements in the last few years. So it has been pretty broad-based in terms of employers pulling these types of requirements back to attract more workers into these jobs."

During a trip to Alabama on Sunday Harris urged Hamas to agree to a six-week ceasefire and said Israel must do more to let aid flow freely into Gaza, where conditions, she said, were "inhumane." Biden has been a staunch ally of Israel and has not wavered in his support since the Oct. 7 attack by Iran-backed Hamas that killed some 1,200 people sparked an offensive by Israel in Gaza that Palestinian authorities say has left more than 30,000 dead.
