Fixed it for ya.Never let a good crisis go to waste. Motto of most politicians.
I have heard that same story from multiple companies I visit - some even offering $1K - $2K signing bonuses when a job is accepted. Meanwhile, the panhandler on the corner has nice boots, an expensive pack and a better coat than mine.I feel sure they are like every other company across this nation with a Help Wanted sign in the window, Nobody wants to work. Example, My home town 10 fast food restaurants all hiring at $15 an hour within 3 blocks of the 5 people cleanly dressed on the corners hold the "Homeless, Anything will Help Sign", We are short staffed at our family business as well, we can't even get folks to show up for an interview
Ironically, my company has had openings in my group for over a year now, and yet they say, I *must* be fully vaccinated by the Dec 08 deadline or be dismissed. I've read 12 different studies now, and the more I read, the more I am confident that it's roulette odds to get the vax. I leave it in God's hands whether I become a Covid statistic. Not knocking anyone else's choice.
Edit to add: have seen 5.56 show up pretty regularly in the past month. BUT, at $12.99/20, I chuckle.
