    Best of luck to them. All it really does is make everything more expensive, and we have a pretty open border with people coming in who will take those jobs. These aren't skilled jobs people are leaving, they're jobs anybody could do, and the states with over 7% unemployment are California, Connecticut, NY, NJ, Nevada, Hawaii, NM, and Illinois.

    The spin is strong in this thread.

    Surefire way to fix this is can another 10+% of the workforce over mandates.

    Buckle up ladies, the holidays are going to be spectacularly horrible.

    Imagine being upset that people are standing up for themselves and finding better jobs. Some of you need serious help.

    One of the unintended and positive consequences of the covid pandemic is that for the first time in decades has given workers in general and especially lower end of the wage scale real bargaining power.

    Would be great if they were doing that. But the numbers don't seem to show that.

    Seems accurate. Democrats and their corporatist allies will look for any reason to push their open borders agenda.

    The imported labor just hasn’t caught up with demand yet. It probably won’t until after Xmas but when retail and shipping start looking to cut back there won’t be all the openings and more people will feel they need to hold onto their consistent payday. That being said smart people should take advantage of what’s happening to move up or move on to some other opportunities that they might not have in the future. With a lot of openings it’s a good time to get a foot in the door of a better career.

    The Corporatocracy isn't only represented by Democrats. Recall that Regan signed the first amnesty. And guys like Rush limbaugh have been Corporate shills for decades.

    I'm not against the concept, usually this shit isn't a zero sum game. I just don't trust timely follow through of the lower classes and this shit is impact costs and access to goods for the rest of us. If they have already got the new jobs, awesome.. If not and then don't for an extended period of time, then fuck em.

    I’m not really cheering for it I’m just pointing out that its an opportunity for the more ambitious that won’t last forever. In the mean time the middle class who already put the work in to get what they have get screwed by the inflation. I do think their solution is to flood the markets with cheap imported labor.

    I think you have it all mixed up It wasn't the Democrats that pushed that trillion dollar tax cut for corporations in 2017 it was the Republicans, in 2021 it's not the Republicans pushing to raise taxes on corporations and beef up IRS enforcement it's the Democrats and the Republicans are the ones fighting against it tooth and nail.

    they can always start their own business and be self employed if they don't like how much a guy giving them a job pays them

    What is wrong with the working class telling Corporate America to go fuck themselves? The world needs more ma and pa small business owners and less wage slaves to Jeff Bezos.

    Quitting is a new virtue to be regarded. Anybody who quit must certainly have been being oppressed.

    It's another statement of victimhood that seems trendy amongst the unskilled and goalless.
