11 million job openings, yet the economy only was able to gain a few hundred thousand jobs….
This tells us that either the aid packages are too large (or are no longer needed at all) or that the people applying for those jobs (if they are applying, that is) are ineligible for those jobs….in other words there are not enough skilled people….Welders and carpenters heavy equipment operators and machinists and such all need training….and, of course, for many people, a blood or hair test for drugs will show them ineligible for skilled employment. (we won’t talk about the idiocy of the “mandate” that does not really legally exist)
And at the other end, the “unskilled” jobs market, the federal and state handouts make working at those jobs illogical, when one can do nothing and make the equivalent of $15 or more just in handouts.
There is something wrong with a government system that encourages people not to work.
