    Yup, people got lazy cashing in on all those Covid unemployment and relief checks over the past year. The checks keep coming now so why would anyone want to go back to work?

    Freebies cripple people over time and make them content and lazy. Dems love to give the freebies out. Many businesses struggling to open back up now .

    I went to the casino last Thursday and the Subway sandwich shop was closed. I asked the security at the door why it was closed and he said they can't find help. Sad what the democrats have done to this country.

    Gotta cut back on the freebies in America or the economy will never fully re-open. Dems in power always have a very hard time cutting off those Gov freebies. This could get ugly.

    Do you see why there is a problem now? So you are willing to pay twice as much for your hamburger combo from 15 years ago but you are opposing to the workers getting a raise but you are fine with the Corporation keeping the profits for themselves.

    Democrats??? You do know that most people lost/left their jobs during the pandemic including when Trump mishandled shit. His bullshit rhetoric confused many people. A lot of those people stayed home out of fear and misinformation. Many folks have been out of work for the last year. Do you really expect them to pick back up and go to work for $7 an hour? It's cheaper for many to stay at home and take care of the kids instead of paying for child care. You can easily blame repubs and dems or China for this. But you always point to the Dems for all your troubles. Sad.

    Many people are using up their unemployment and stim checks versus working a shit job. Supply and demand. If your company pays peanuts, good luck finding good people. Companies are being forced to offer higher wages because people are not interested in being exploited. Over time, people will have to make hard choices and go back to a lot of these low paying jobs because there won't be many options. But today, it's definitely a workers market, which is a good thing.

    Exactly - I went to BK for the first time in over a year and was shocked when I bought a whopper meal that cost almost $10. WTF??? All these fast food restaurants have raised prices tremendously and are profiting off of sweat shop wages. Then they bitch when they can't find good help.

    Fast food restaurants are for entry level workers to break into the work field. You can't hire someone to work the grill at $15 an hour while some guy that went to a trade school is getting the same amount for skilled labor.

    If you got hired at $8.00 15 years ago and are still making $8.00, then maybe you are the problem. I live in Pa and while minimum wage is only $7.25, everyone is hiring way above that.

    I don't know anyone who is making or gets hired at $7.25. I do know of people that could be working and getting $650 a week, but instead are sitting home making an extra $100.

    Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill., on Monday tore into his GOP colleagues for coddling former President Donald Trump and his false claim that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

    "This is lies versus truth," Kinzinger said during an interview with the National Press Club. "It's amazing how some of my colleagues claim to likewise be Christians but are somehow OK with just accepting and supporting these lies."

    "If you want to hide because you don't want to tick off the base and you don't want to tell the truth about Jan. 6 and you don't want to have to admit that Joe Biden won an election, Cheney makes it uncomfortable for you," Kinzinger said Monday. "Because when she's asked about it she doesn't dance around; she just says the election wasn't stolen, Biden was president, and Jan. 6 was a Trump-inspired insurrection.

    "When it comes down to it, that's what Liz Cheney is being removed for — for making it uncomfortable and being consistent," he continued. "And God bless her for having the consistency to tell the truth.

    "The one person continually bringing all this back up is not Liz Cheney, it's Donald Trump," Kinzinger added. "He's the one that keeps talking about the 'Big Lie' and the stolen election. He's the one that's not unifying. But of course, he's out of power, he's a loser, but he's the one a lot of people fear."

    Why can't you hire someone to work the grill at $15 an hr and pay the trade school worker for skilled labor $22 an hour? I don't understand your logic. If the minimum wage is raised then the people with trade school skills or college school degree will get a $7 per hour raise too to what they make now.

    Most of these jobs are held by high school kids with zero job skills living at home. They don’t deserve $15 an hour. Only a stupid dem thinks businesses should pay this rate and sell their products at a loss.

    Millions of people can, but apparently millions of people no longer want to - given the labor shortages. People are fed up, if McDonalds wants employees back raise their prices. It's simple supply and demand and capitalism. I'm sure people will come back to them here soon, McD has the choice to wait till they return, or raise their prices. Their decision.

    Amazing how you don't see that they are the swamp. People elected Trump to get rid of these losers. The same old nasty corrupt politicians who say just about anything to get elected. If they do get elected, then its the same routine. They beg for more money and blame the other guy. If they happen to get re-elected, they do the same sham all over again while personally making millions along the way.

    Unless you are still a teenager, how you don't see this is beyond sad.
