Gosh, if you set up worker protections and tend to pay people a living wage, they aren't going to seek greener pastures as fast? It's almost as if folks who had a chance to think on their lives for a bit realized that chasing that cheap ass check wasn't worth it.

Man, why does Dame Market hate Real 'Murica?

Scarcity drives up prices. If labor is scarce then pay more, because that's how free markets work.
Yay capitalism!

I dunno about anyone else, but I'm loyal to my paycheck. The bigger the paycheck, the more loyal I get.

What is Biden supposed to do about it?

It was taken out back and shot, along with pensions and upward mobility.

Wait...that's weird.  When did Maine stop being a right-to-work state?

Of course, Utah is the outlier. Red state and all, but only one percentage point higher than California. It's hard to predict anything with certainty about this state, except that our elected officials are always going to have at least one person among the worst in the country. While we may not have an MTG or a Ron DeSantis, Mike Lee manages to surface any time you forget about him and remind you how much of a prick he is. Luckily, we tend to get these only one at a time, usually...

That doesn't line up very well at all.  I'm not even sure what the pattern is supposed to be here?

The pattern is supposed to be confirmation bias. Farkers will see whatever they want to.

We don't live in an entitlement society.

No one is entitled loyalty - loyalty is earned

Well we have been losing people left and right, mostly new hires just lost a guy that started yesterday. He was fired for "Making absurd comments." I wish I knew what he said, most of my job is making absurd comments. One guy on his first day had  panic attack in parking lot and left, it is getting weird out here.

Well, at least until the nobles pressure the crown to pass anti-vagrancy and price fixing laws.  Arrest the folks offering higher wages and enslave the workers moving from town to town seeking better employment.

They're already working on it.

A bill criminalizing temporary living on public property is set to come up for a vote in the Wisconsin State Assembly when it convenes Tuesday.

And while they're at it, they'll get around higher wages by putting all the children to work.

Recently, a country's local legislative body approved a bill allowing 14-year-olds to work as late as 11 pm. Some may think this was a case in a country that is not well developed. But actually, it was the state of Wisconsin

Even when it's work-from-home.  Because a company that's been used to paying Boston salaries can hire someone away in Sioux City.  Probably even lowball them from their perspective. But the company that's been paying pre-Covid Sioux City tech wages (i.e., 35-40% of Silicon Valley) thinks "we're now (begrudgingly) open to remote workers, why can't we hire anyone?"  A national to near-Global market, maybe?

I dont know how the camping thing will work out.  Years ago, Boulder, CO tried the same thing.  They lost so bad, to this day the courthouse is a semi-premiant homeless camp.

Counter-spin: If you don't believe that the employers around you are thriving and growing, you don't quit your job.

Just FYI, this is what "Right to Work" means.  It's different that "At Will Employment"

In the context of labor law in the United States, the term "right-to-work laws" refers to state laws that prohibit union security agreements between employers and labor unions. Under these laws, employees in unionized workplaces are banned from negotiating contracts which require employees who are not union members to contribute to the costs of union representation
