Each semester, as part of my first exam in intermediate macroeconomics, I find an every-day news article to include and ask questions about related to either a basic labor/production market model or a review of intro materials. For reference/materials (feel free to steal) in the past I've used:

Fall 2018: "Economists See Fed Raising Rates in June, Then September" https://www.wsj.com/articles/economists-see-fed-raising-rates-in-june-then-september-1525969175
Spring 2018: "Danish Companies Seek to Hire, but Everyone’s Already Working" https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/28/business/economy/denmark-jobs-full-employment.html
Fall 2017: "What full employment really means" https://www.economist.com/the-economist-explains/2017/01/29/what-full-employment-really-means
Spring 2017: "Skilled Workers Are Scarce in Tight Labor Market" https://www.wsj.com/articles/skilled-workers-are-scarce-in-tight-labor-market-1486047602
Fall 2016: "Video killed the radio star" http://review.chicagobooth.edu/economics/2016/article/video-killed-radio-star

You get the point.

Does anyone have anything similar that they may use? As much as I'd love to use detailed labor research this is meant more for students to quickly read and analyze basic questions like "Using Income/Substitution effects..." or "... why would the Fed decide to reinvest?"

Thank you in advance.
