Taylor Wilson:

good morning. I’m Taylor Wilson and these are 5 things you need to know Friday January 14, 2022. Today, wages are going up, plus Russia’s latest demands and more.

Here are some of the main headlines:

  1. The Supreme Court has blocked enforcement of vaccine or testing requirements that President Joe Biden has placed on employers. It’s the second time the court has rolled back Biden’s pandemic policy, which continues to rule that federal officials are exceeding the authority granted to them by Congress.
  2. A number of government websites in Ukraine went down today after a hacking attack. It was not immediately clear who was behind the attack, but it comes amid heightened tensions with Russia.
  3. North Korea has launched new short-range ballistic missiles in its third launch this month. The move is an apparent response to the Biden administration’s recent sanctions on the country.
