  • What’s your sandwich of choice to celebrate National Sandwich Month?
  • A new study which uses recent U.S. Census data shows Gen Z will be the last generation with a white majority. Around 2045, the number of non-Hispanic white people will fall below half as a share of the overall population nationwide.
