ha ha and that's the retardation of it all blunts are for wealthy niggas like snoop. I see retarded stoners make a $100 blunt burn it down in mins be high for 1hr then complain about not having any weed for the rest of the week not once trying to control their tolerance level. Lazy as fuck substance abusers. When my state gives me a limited medical prescription for pain $100 is like a weeks worth for me.

I’m one of the rare ones here in NY. I’m a straight white male accountant trying to get hired after being laid off during the lockdown and every 2nd round interview I have is with HR. Every single one of them has been a rude black woman who probably thinks I killed George Floyd myself.

TheOutlawPepeWales 53 points ago +53 / -0

We have the same problem in SWVA. There are jobs avaiable everywhere that nobody is willing to do because the welfare state pays them more to stay home. The local DQ doesn't serve burgers anymore, and the Subway is closed during the middle of the week. I had a new kid screw up my order yesterday after I had already corrected him twice, but I didn't make a fuss because at least he fucking showed up. It's really sad that our standards have sunk so low.

My post explicitly states that they took the risk to start the business. Furthermore any of those complainers including you are welcome to take that risk anytime you want. Most start one and then another and so on. They can’t work at multiple or even just one all the fucking time... This labor market will send prices to the moon if you have even seen the inside of a restaurant in the past three months and cared about money you would know this.

War_Hamster 2 points ago +5 / -3

We should get rid of all fast food. You can't get cheap and healthy if you're paying someone to make it and have any profit for the owner.

So they sacrifice the "healthy" part and we now have an obesity and diabetes epidemic that overwhelms our health care system and drives up costs for the rest of us.

The FDA is complicit, and this self-created epidemic kills far more than Covid every did, yet Big Pharma keeps anything from ever being done about it.

Meddlesom 4 points ago +4 / -0

I'm not into telling people what they can and cannot make and sell, or what people can or cannot buy and eat.

Let dumbfucks buy their shitty fast food every day and waste their money on unhealthy stuff that'll kill them early. I'll continue to primarily cook my own meals, but if I want an unhealthy, sketchy, fast food burger from time to time, I want that option.

Just don't make me pay for their healthcare and we're good.

The concept of working and wages needs to be adjusted… Wage is nothing but membership dues being paid by the organizations. So yea, when the biggest organization out there is Federal Government that’s paying the highest membership dues without an exchange of service, which we call work, is it any surprise that smaller organizations can’t compete? Working is not a benefit but a requirement, human nature is lazy by design.

If they're hospitality jobs I think it has something to do with wearing a mask all day long while trying to communicate with people as you're muzzled or they have to show proof of vaccination for continued employment due to blue state fascist regulations.

Younger people are not taking restaurant jobs anymore. they are going to other industries where there is higher pay and health Insurance and other benefits. Restaurants do not typically offer this. the higher paid jobs at Restaurants are filled, such as Waitstaff and bartenders that get tips are filled but the cook positions and other positions that do not receive tips are vacant. its everywhere. not just those areas. I saw a sign at White castle offering $13.50 an Hour to start.

I heard on another site that often times ex-cons have a hard time entering many industries but back end cooks is one place they can easily land.

Oh yeah, state unemployment agencies will find places for the ex-cons -- any more, industries with huge shortages -- trucking, welding -- will not have a problem.

I'm an ex-con and would work for the right employer but I'm not doing jobs that are less dignified than prison

Most truck stop diners have excon cooks. They cook a damn good grilled cheese or burger though I'm not going to lie

I started working for the USPS about a year ago making $19.00 per hour and immediate health insurance to start. We can't get anyone that wants to work. They come in thinking that it's an easy job, then they realize that you actually have to work HARD, then they quit.

I applied for USPS last year (July 2020). Went through the entire process, signed and accepted my job offer, had an orientation date scheduled... Then they emailed me saying the job position was "cancelled"

That's weird they're having trouble finding people

That's just the government bureaucracy at work. Incompetence. Don't take it personal. If you want a government job just keep applying over and over again for all positions that you want.

Grab those government jobs while you can. The pay and benefits are pretty good. Also once you're in for awhile you get the flow of the work process and can slack off more and more. That's why people say government employees are lazy. It is pretty much true because there is not much incentive to work hard in the government.

Yep, when your employer's funding is guaranteed, there's no incentive for performance perimeters

Exactly right. Also if you bust your ass you don't even get a second of thought.

witchism11 1 point ago +1 / -0

That happened to me as well. I continued applying for positions in different cities and eventually landed one in the city I preferred. In fact, I'll bet they will end up calling you sometime in the future with a job offer. Keep applying at different cities. Just be aware that they will work you to death once you are hired. But you will make fat money. Good luck!

My post office is ALWAYS short workers because they call out quite a bit. My poor mail carrier is sometimes still delivering mail at 7 pm because he has to do routes for people that called out.

2
witchism11 2 points ago +2 / -0

It's always the same ones who call off work. They know that the union will cover their butts and it's the reliable workers who end up getting screwed by the lazy ones. I've seen carriers out until 9 PM during the holidays and that is AFTER they have delivered their own routes.

Just went to a restaurant yesterday and the one waitress was running around by herself. At the end of the meal she apologized and said they have no help even though they’ve had hiring signs out for months. Every where I go there’s hiring now signs. But there was a family in the Home Depot parking lot with a “please help!” sign asking for donations. Go get a job and help your own family instead of relying on the government and other people’s handouts

Everyone in here has already forgotten most places require the clot shot and a face diaper to go back to work. So, patriots, are we men who stand by our morals and say “no clot shot and face diaper no work?” Or are you cucks who took the shot to go back to your $9.00 soul sucking jobs? Sounds like ALL of you have forgotten what the work environment requires to enter it now. Sounds like all of you are caving on your morals for “muh paychecks” while being the same asshole screaming “YOU HAVE CHOICES TO MOVE AND GET A NEW JOB!” Fuck, you all sound like leftist cucks in here.

Maybe, but I hear/read some of these people talking in other communities. There's a section of these unemployed who are newly graduated college folks who never worked a real job in their life, who are surprised they can't find some 6 figure work-at-home programming job right off the bat.

Tried to comfort one, give them a pep talk, tell them that tenacity and finding a smaller job in the meantime is worth a lot to people who hire for this stuff, and the rest of the group jumped on me. "That's not how it works for this kind of work!"

I mean, yes, sometimes people find good jobs right out of college, but they usually have a good amount of work experience under their belts first.

For very good reason, this worries me...

Well, if it helps, my husband does some programming as a side hustle. And yes, has made some good money doing it. I think in some ways that's an easier way to go if you're looking to get away from what you're currently doing. Programming is one of those things that requires very low overhead to create a product on your own.

Really, all you need is to come up with a piece of software people want.

The Black Plague had a similar effect. It actually created the founding conditions of the modern middle class. Not only did the jobs of hundreds of thousands of workers need to be replaced, many people were too spooked to sign up for dangerous work. If you were an enterprising craftsman who was willing to ventured into abandoned, plague-cursed villages, you had bargaining power over lords and ladies for the first time ever.

The rent is too high. Too much money going to landlords.

It's not worth working if you're going to get paid $9/hr and it's going to cost you $2000/month for a crappy tiny apartment.

Also, for the employer, they can't pay more than $9/hour if the commercial landlord is taking $20/sqft every month.

Bro works in low level staffing. Companies now paying 18+ an hour and still can't get workers because the government still pays more to stay home. They will undoubtedly issue more checks soon and the cycle will continue. Eventually the cycle ends these higher paying jobs will disappear once ppl have to go back to work.

Fuck hospitality jobs. Give me a real fucking job. I did that shit for ten years. I'd rather die or go to prison than do that bullshit again. I'd work a real job for 12 an hour. To go back to the restaurant business they'd have to pay me $150 an hour with two hour shifts with huge paid breaks.

It will be interesting to see what Biden does once the media picks up that the reason people don't want to go back to work is because they don't want to be vaccinated. Will he require the vax to get the unemployment checks?

I agree, and another issue (that I think has gotten some traction in this thread) is that we really have possibly an overabundance of service businesses. Maybe we don't need to rely on these businesses? Especially if they require their employees to mask and vaccinate? I don't use a mask, and I am not vaccinated, but if I go to a store and they require either of their customers or employees, they have permanently lost my business. This is an economic war now. I will not fund that tyranny.

We already did not use a lot of service businesses, like eating out, but I was shocked to find out how often others did. We have cut down even more, we go for quality, family owned businesses where they have family members working. That's how a lot of restaurants used to make it.
