...just for them to be eliminated again during the recession.

Indeed.

Across many metrics, most things have returned to where they were before the pandemic -- in contrast to all the business gurus who had claimed that "everything has changed forever" and that the world is in a "new normal."

Human behavior takes thousands, if not millions, of years to change significantly.

Thanks to Red states!

"The trend holds when you look at total employment. States with Republican governors gained 1.32 million jobs since February 2020, an increase of 1.85 percent. States led by Democrats throughout the pandemic, and Washington, D.C., lost 751,000 jobs. That's a 0.87 percent decrease."

Wow a biased conservative opinion article with misleading facts on Fark? I for one am shocked. I like how the author conventionality leaves out Nevada had almost twice the unemployment rate than 'liberal' states like California during the same pandemic period. So thank you red states for finally getting off your asses and doing something about that pandemic and not dragging the entire economy down with you. You really did us a solid there.

The pandemic ends when the now endemic COVID-19 becomes predictable, with reliable treatments.

So... yes, it's over has been for months.

In the report they also state of the 528k jobs gains, 303k were part time jobs because people had hours reduced or couldn't find full time work.

Quality of jobs matter.

It's not looking good for healthcare when places are closing hospitals because they cannot staff them.

COVID and assholes really put a damper on the healthcare industry. Most people who deliver care (think STNA/LPN/Nurses/RN) don't get paid a decent wage for all the bullshiat they go through on a normal day, then amp that up by 100x over the last two years...

All they ever talk about is jobs added ,never wages.
The wages in northeast Pa. went back to the level they were before the pandemic. Many businesses never raised those wages, they just put up signs asking for patience.
Meanwhile , Wall Street celebrated record profits after price gouging because people got $1400 and now cry because people can't afford to buy their things.

No
Labor is what puts value into company stock.

Then lazy sit at home stock owners take most of the profits labor creates.

I work for two firms.  Both were impacted by the pandemic.  Both kept everyone on payroll, allowed WFH, and are doing ok.  But, one having realized that I can do all my work in half the time they had allotted now expect me to take a pay cut, while still doing all my work.

The other firm, realizing the same, is offering me more money to keep my part time hours and looking for a full time slot.

Decisions, decisions.  I wonder which company is going to be putting up a posting on Indeed.

So while CNBC was setting fire to hoboes, I was trying to figure out why the local food bank is suffering more now than a year ago.  Nothing is back to normal.  My neighbor's new washing machine broke almost a year ago and is still awaiting parts.

Normal? I can't buy a car. Can't buy a bike. The stores are overflowing with crap I don't need or want while I pay through the nose for everyday necessities.

This isn't normal.

Feed the part number into FleaBay and see if someone has a used part.   I replaced an obsolete rheostat on my oven a few years ago.  Some guy in Alabama rips apart old appliances and sells used parts.  I'm sure he wasn't the only one.

and the not so funny thing is that this nation has a violent and turbulent history when it comes to labor.

its always shiat on labor because those who own capital (sic) hill are big stock owners and stock owners know that they less labor is paid, the more free Precious they get.

this nation cares about stock owners and profits only.

people and Democracy can fuk off.

This isn't normal.


A few years ago, we swapped out name brand cat litter for horse bedding because a 20lb bag of litter was over $10 and the horse bedding was $5 for 40lb.

Tomorrow I'm going to try another brand because my original supplier hasn't had a bag in over a month at any their stores.  Meanwhile, a little country store has an 80lb bag for $9.  I'm willing to drive the extra 10 miles because it's cheaper than anything at a local chain.

If this is the new normal, I'm going to start looking for time travel, cause this time is nuts.
