Lefties like to talk about vaccinations in red states. Let's talk about people working in red states.

Yep. Communist/Dem states have high taxes, driving businesses out of the state and offer more unemployment and other welfare "benefits", incentivizing people to remain unemployed. Conservative states have lower taxes and attract businesses, and incentivize people to work and not be a leech on society.

Meanwhile...open the floodgates of illegals bringing in the Rona over the Mexican border. But argue that American citizens need "vaccine passports" in order to attend sporting events and travel to other states.

About that Biden "jobs and recovery" plan...this type of spending will only skyrocket our debt, lead to raising taxes which will HARM businesses and employment, and lead to inflation and ultimately the destruction of the dollar.

Some presidents would be called to task on such a lie.

Guys Biden and this crazy congress are destroying the country. I can't believe what's happened since Jan 20th. It's gone guys. I don't think it's going to matter by 2022. I'm not even sure we will have a real election by then... I sure hope we restore integrity in the election process by then. But even if the election swings big the other way this administration will be in for 2 more years. I think we might be too far gone. Plus the idiocy of the voters never ceases to amaze me.

How many times was this said the last four years? Yea, I dont think Biden has done a good job at all, but lets not pretend this type of reaction isnt cyclical

Saddest thing is none of this had to happen. This election was stolen and you'll never convince me otherwise. And people that think it's going away... it's not. I hope everyone likes the spending, mass inflation on everything now, employment issues, our border in shambles, etc.

Biden is proving that just being a good guy can you get a 50% approval rate in the US. Personally, I really take issue with his comment that he sees no evidence that government assistance is preventing people from going back to work. That's just a bold lie. You have millions sitting at home sucking the nation dry off the backs of those who work when jobs are available. Infuriates me. The gravy train will end. We'll revisit Biden's approval numbers once it does.

Biden's approval numbers are already rather low given where he is in the presidency.

Clearly some people are sitting at home still because they're getting unemployment. We can all pontificate how many people it is but I haven't seen any seemingly sound quantitative assessment of this.

Maybe it's just because I sell in the hospitality industry, but that sector is brutal with employment.

Quote:

Now we learn that California which received $42.3 billion in the Democrats' recent "relief" bill, as a "bailout" of its supposedly damaged budget has an enormous budget surplus, thanks mostly to the stock market having boomed last year and driven up capital gains tax revenues.

The Democratic Party has used its control of the federal government to borrow billions and billions of dollars so that the Democratic governor of California can try to bribe his way out of a recall election by sending his voters cash. There are many words for that sort of behavior, but "relief" is not among them.
Saving apparently doesn't count as "doing something." Frivolous spending seems to be the hallmark of this administration and political party. Just imagine the sermonizing press we would all be subjected to if this attempt was made by the other political party.

Restaurant/bar is still, by far, the most-impacted industry.

With a trend towards full reopening and in-person dining I'd expect that to bounce up significantly in the next 90 days.

I've read articles indicating many restaurants can't keep their workers even after bumping their wages because the feds are providing too much money through the plus up efforts for unemployment. These same articles indicated owners are trying to survive using strategies that assume workers will likely return in September when the subsidies end.

If they extend the unemployment benefits past September, restaurants will be closed because they can't staff enough for the customers that will need them. I've seen restaurants that have only opened for dinner or only opened during the week or just the weekend. It depends on how many people that can actually get to work. If you tell a server that he or she can make 500 a week without having to deal with ******* customers that treat them like dog ****, why in the WORLD would they go back to work?

To be honest, the restaurant industry can't afford to go back to full capacity right now. Extended unemployment benefits need to end, they need to get back to work, get trained properly, and THEN open back up to full capacity.

From a CNBC article about the April Jobs Report:
"'I think this is just as much about a shortage in labor supply as it is about a shortage of labor demand,' said Jason Furman, an economist at Harvard University and a former Obama administration advisor. 'If you look at April, it appears that there were about 1.1 unemployed workers for every job opening. So there are a lot of jobs out there, there is just still not a lot of labor supply.'"

That's a polished way of saying there are a **** load of lazy mf'ers out there gaming the system. There are MORE jobs than people to fill them, yet unemployment rose to 6.1%. Incentivize work, not welfare. But that won't happen in Biden's manchurian presidency.

If ~30-50%of the people just don't work and collect welfare (or work for the government, paid by taxpayers), the country will collapse. It's not sustainable. Either taxes go to 90% for those who do work, or the national debt skyrockets in short order and we have hyperinflation that destroys the economy and dollar.

And that's the PLAN. Socialism is designed to destroy the private system and collapse economies.

And this whole corona Scamdemic has been orchestrated to accelerate all these socialist policies and destroy small businesses, and collapse the economy, and skyrocket spending and debt and cause inflation of the currency.

We are already seeing the signs of inflation, with prices of nearly everything rising sharply recently.

This is all by design.

I've been eating on a regular basis at Carolina Ale House in Raleigh and Wilmington as well as Lynnwwod Grill Since last May or June. Sitting at the bar no issues. Full menu of food and drinks. If $600 a week is keeping people from working then maybe businesses need to pay more. Can you live on $31,000 per year?

In Raleigh the average rent on a 1 bedroom apartment is $900-$1000 a month. Gas, food, insurance, utilities, not even considering health insurance or day care.

Congrats, I guess? What the **** does that have to do with fully staffing a restaurant?

Can I personally live on that? No, but I'm also not an unskilled laborer. Maybe they should pay them more but that's not up to me to decide. Maybe you should start a restaurant and pay all your workers 45k a year and be a huge success like your lefty posterchild grifting pillow maker?

Also, maybe people shouldn't be dicks and actually tip their server at least 15% every time they go out to eat. Or, should restaurants just go the European model and not go with tipped wages and pay a flat rate and add gratuity onto checks automatically? Not sure, but expect prices to go up regardless.

I don't think Ale House is the best example to use here. LM restaurants have a ton of money, not to mention they got a hefty PPP loan

Lynwood grill is much smaller biz, but was well established beforehand.

I made 30k my first job out of State in 2009 while living in Raleigh. My first raise at that job put me slightly above 31k. It can be done...it aint great, but it can be done. Thankfully, that job opened my eyes to other opportunities within the industry that I pursued aggressively and have since bumped my pay and skill set significantly.
