Was talking to a friend in Jersey a couple days ago. There was a casino job fair, with 750 open positions, and either 5 or 50 people showed up. 

Lot's of open positions in the Philly burbs as well.

Most pay $15 an hour.

Few takers.

The fed unemployment add on is killing businesses. If you think it's best to do nothing, you're part of the problem.

If only someone could’ve foreseen people making more/same on unemployment, and deciding it’s just not worth it to go back to work when things opened back up. Hmmmmm......

The Burger King in Latrobe Pa has a banner up, $1,500. 00 bonus for new employees.

That's crazy.

 

My thought with this whole thing is it's a strategy of the left to get businesses to increase hourly wages. I'm sure it won't lead to increased prices.

Have you ever seen me advocate for any such thing?

Employers that slashed pay roll are suddenly scrambling to re-hire in the face of returning demand. Feds should have offered more PPP so they could have kept their employees on. I said this last year.

It's being reported in Philly that bars and restaurants can't get staff because people are making more on unemployment.

Pretty much, every, service business is experiencing this, problem.

Seasonal jobs are not being filled because people are making more money on unemployment then actually  doing the work. 
August can’t get here fast enough for me!

Saw a commercial for this job fair. 800 positions.

We start at $15, $1 raise after 6mo, another $1 after a year!

Well, at least everyone that showed up likely got hired. Even the guy that showed up in shorts, flip flops, and a wife beater. Lol

$600 or $700 a wk to do nothing. Why would any service industry folks work. Drop it by $300 and you'll get some people moving.
