  • It's almost like people are realizing working shiat jobs for shiat pay isn't worth it.

    /I'll admit, only stating the obvious for the easy smart votes.
    //Low hanging fruit and all...
  • If you don't like it, don't work there.
    -no one works there-
    Why are you so lazy and entitled?
  • Better make it quick - a labor market that favors labor will not be allowed to exist for long in Murica.
    We don't tolerate shiat like that in this country. If we are mean to the rich people, they might run away and leave us.
    They will fix this soon, believe me, so if you think you can wring any tiny scrap of economic justice out of it for yourself - strike while the iron is hot.
  • the part I'm currently amused by is the "incentives" they are offering.  A local business owner was being interviewed on the news yesterday and he was touting the great $250 signing bonus you would get if you stayed 30 days.  Wow, $250 whole dollars?  I can't imagine why people aren't lining up for that shiat.  These assholes will do just about anything to get people to apply at this point.  Well, anything except actually raise wages.
  • And Bezos goes to space. This is a freaky new guilded age.
  • I've decided that when this golden age of labor ends, I'm still not going to put up with any shiat from business.

    Don't pay enough? Then fark you, I'm not working for you. The world has changed, and you are a scumbag.
  • I find it interesting that the local 'mom & pop' places aren't having a problem. Probably because they are staffed by family and took care of each other during the downturn.

    FTFM

    Here in the south suburbs of Chicago, I'm more likely to see a " nObOdY wAnTs to wOrK" sign on a mom and pop than a chain.
  • I love this thread. The ability to listen to whining from losers, NEETs, and the poster children for why Socialism fails every time makes my heart happy.

    Next; "I can't pay my bills, because PedoJoe won't cut me a check!"

    Followed by: "We need eviction moratoriums!"

    Then - "Why is my neighborhood a slum, now?"

    Really?

    Aren't all non-chain restaurants "mom & pop" places? As the article notes, they too have staff shortages but are most reluctant to pay people more - instead, they're cutting hours.

    I've seen a number of restaurants advertise $12 and $13 per-hour wages as if it's this once in a lifetime opportunity.
  • Lots of fast food places around me are closed for a few days per week because they can't find workers. Meanwhile, there are entry level jobs that let you work from home for $20 an hour. Ex: My cousin got a job coordinating security system installations / maintenance over the phone.

    Restaurants will eventually pay more or go out of business.  So far, they are choosing poorly.
  • CSB: The tech industry is also desperate for workers. I interviewed at a place for remote work and they told me they only offer the salary I want if I live in the bay area. I said "then pretend I live in the bay area. My contribution to the company is unrelated to where I live." They declined. 2 months later (yesterday), they emailed me with an offer of exactly what I wanted. It's too late. Another company already hired me.
  • So desperate they're adding words to the job posting!

    /not money tho, not *that* desperate!
  • Was out yesterday and saw a national fancy burger chain had a sign up "cooks wanted $13/hr!", You could see the billboard from the front door "Amazon Warehouse starting at $17/hr, with full benefits".    While I dont think Amazon is the best job in the world, flippin burger for $13 vs $17 w/ benefits + full time hours seems like a better deal.   * note: my youngest worked at Amazon over Christmas, hated it, but made really good money.

    Everyone took the time and stimulus money to start their own businesses.

    It's what America is about, the Capitalist dream.
  • August11: And Bezos goes to space. This is a freaky new guilded age.


    Then why doesn't anyone want to join my guild?

    Ha. That slipped by me. Gilded.
  • Wait until the federal stipend goes away and watch how quickly this changes.

    Another few dollars more and they will have caught up to the purchasing power of min wage in the mid 70s

  • We can never find enough people to fill the six-figure jobs we have open (not kidding). Difficulty: a) Ohio, b) generally need a technical degree, masters preferred, and c) be able to obtain a clearance.
