I think with out the need to write more about the subject, the picture from today’s paper below demonstrates why it is so difficult to hire right now.
The company I work for goes through employees like shit through a goose. They hire 5 and the next day 3 leave. I’m not certain that the reason is so that they can say they’ve “tried” to find something.
For an employee who is not in managment, they make more money by not working. I have always felt that was the case but this chart puts those thoughts into a concrete form.
Why go to work when you can make more money by staying home? Probably also doesn’t hurt your need to feel safe from Covid as well.
