And when we don't have herd immunity, the unvaccinated are human petri dishes for the virus to mutate.

Hopefully the smart money will stop funding Republican politicians when it starts effecting their bottom line, but I doubt it. Corporate fear of organized labor is too deeply entrenched.

Despite that they'll still keep giving them money.

Of course they will.

The American system is structured so that the 38% popularity of the gop keeps them in outsized power.

Coming in number one as 'Most awesome,' once again, is capitalism.

The business outlook has been super stupid since the rebound after the market crash. Everything people are spending is manufactured out of thin air... it's all debt. We have added like $5 trillion to the money supply out of thin air.

If they thought that sh*t was going to last they should all be fired.

Of course the Republicans being a death cult is unhelpful to the mix, but to think we were going to have uninterrupted growth in perpetuity is just asinine. Maybe stop funding these assholes? I mean... what do you want... lower taxes and INSANE amounts of pain as we try to figure out how to pay for it and eventually you'll pay like 90% in taxes because we're f*cking broke... or, you pay slightly higher taxes, experience slightly lower growth over the short term which would pick up later on as your consumers have more wages and can buy more of your sh*t?

I mean, I know the answer, these people only think in 3 month long periods of time. The next quarter. That short-sighted bullsh*t is going to be the death of us. You can only keep mortgaging today for tomorrow for so long. Eventually, you have to pay for all this sh*t.

Maybe we finally get to see that happen. I won't hold my breath.

The 1% one year ago: "No, everybody keep working! Billionaire money machine go 'brrrr'! You have a good chance of surviving!"

Now: "Say, um, this anti-vaccine thing we paid for last year is inconvenient right now"

The only business this approach helps is the funeral industry.

"The labor market is not fully recovered - we're seeing that across other surveys, as well, and even the Fed's own Beige Book indicates that hiring has been challenging," Haworth said. "There's a lot of room for improvement, but it's really slow going."

Have they tried paying more?

I heard that even before the pandemic many silicon valley companies had separate entrances and offices for the C-suite and the cattle got to use the barn door, I meant front entrance.

Please, none of these people give a flying shiat about the economy or this countries future. They've already got there 2nd and 3rd homes off shore to sail too. They are just burning the house down on the way out.

It's the biggest Take the Money and Run scheme entirely driven by farkhead conservatives

A lot of places are, wages are up 60% on my shift at my factory over the last two years.  It is helping, but we've also had to basically double our workforce due to our products becoming way more popular over the last 4 years and there aren't that many people in a small town even looking for an off shift job in manufacturing... which is the only place you can typically add production at an existing factory.

Manufacturing and logistics are the hardest hit industries by the labor shortage, and that problem has been decades in the making.  The wages have been kept lower than historical norms because automation has been wiping out jobs for generations.  Basically much of the work force has been shuffling from one factory or warehouse to the next as jobs disappear and it's been keeping wages down and new people out of those industries.  Now those workers are ageing out of manual labor.

The labor shortage in factories started before the pandemic did.

Also, don't forget corporate fear of a halfway-reasonable tax rate for the rich and corporations.

They're so unhappy they send them money and shut-up about it, That's unhappy like Grandma used to make.

Somebody with that last name, who chooses to go by that first name, is doing it on purpose.

I had a neighbor whose name was Ted E. Bair. The middle initial was unnecessary except to be teddy bear. Well, why not just introduce yourself as Teddy?

I'd think he would be pretty good at hiding it, if you know what I mean and I think you do.

I've heard of sounding, but I'm not even sure this is possible.
