US worker shortage getting worse by the day, says Chamber of Commerce

The US Chamber of Commerce on Monday announced a nationwide initiative to address the worker shortage in the US. The initiative, labeled ’America Works,’ aims to mobilize industry and government to ’swiftly address America’s deepening worker shortage crisis.’ ’The worker shortage is real — and it’s getting worse by the day,’ US Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Suzanne Clark said.

Yes. It's definitely a "worker shortage" problem. It's certainly not a "people getting more money from unemployment than they can from working" problem. Nope. Nothing to see here. Hey! Look over there! Some racism happening! *whistles innocently*

F you and your "Workers Shortage." There's plenty of people out there to do the jobs, but the thing is a lot of them can make as much (or more) sitting on their ass collecting benefits. What tf do you think happens when you reward unemployment like that!?

Paying the lazy to sit at home so labor can be replaced by "unregistered immigrants" was always the Biden plan. This plan no doubt will increase the Dem base. US is headed for a one party government, just like many Socialist countries.

Cut all these unemployment benefits and stiffen the requirements immediately and you will see a full rout back to normal.

I just spoke yesterday to someone who got fired for duplicitous reasons and cannot find a job. He couldn't get unemployment pay, and he's now in his last legs financially. He's in his 40s after working in the military and in industrial plants. He thought he might be able to get a job as respected as "Target shelf stocker" but now has to look for lower hanging fruits. Maybe McDonald's is hiring. These are the "abundance of job openings" they talk about.

The only reason the new filings for unemployment keeps ticking down slightly is because there aren't any more people left to file for it because everybody is already on it

Workers unite! Take advantage of the unwritten laws of supply and demand. Right now, there is a huge demand for labor and a short supply of labor, meaning as a worker your time is that much more valuable. It's not just McDonald's, businesses all over the country are hungry for employees. Get a job as an apprentice for a construction company and do that for five years boom $48,000 a year for straightforward work if you're not a dullard, probably $60,000 if you can be a team leader. The bargaining power is in the hands of the individual, walk into your boss's office right now and make your case for a raise or pack up and move on.

Well if we weren't paying people to stay at home more than they could make at work maybe we wouldn't be in this situation.

Chamber of Commerce works for commerce, certainly you don’t think they work for you. And let’s see, prices have doubled and some tripled and no pay increase? Maybe we should go back to growing our own food and making our own clothes, etc.

Every onead about the average Joe getting touch unemployment, while behind closed doors large corporations were given millions in free money,and you don't say a word about that. Remember they get tax breaks to begin with and will not be the ones paying that money back.

"Work is not mankind's curse, but his blessing. A man becomes a man through labor. It elevates him, makes him great and aware, raises him above all other creatures. It is in the deepest sense creative, productive, and culture-producing. Without labor, no food. Without food, no life. Marxist nonsense claimed to free labor, yet it degraded the work of its members and saw it as a curse and disgrace. The worker in a capitalist state is no longer a living human being, a creator, a maker. He has become a machine. A number, a cog in the machine without sense or understanding. He is alienated from what he produces. Labor is for him only a way to survive, not a path to higher blessings, not a joy, not something in which to take pride, or satisfaction, or encouragement, or a way to build character." -Dr. Joseph Goebbels

What happened to the days when people had too much pride do you want money from the government? I personally hate the idea of being on unemployment. This is Karma from the lazy bums sitting at home instead of going to work. They are not going to have a job to go back to or will have to take a lower paying job in an inflationary environment they helped create.
