    You know we have indexes for food prices right? The rampant illegal problem in the US is so helpful to reducing prices that a chunk of Europe, Canada, Scandinavia and Australia all have lower food prices than the US. It's almost like there's no benefit whatsoever and it's a feel-good narrative of bullshit.

    That's interesting. I always thought groceries were cheaper in the US. Australia is certainly very expensive by regional standards (labour costs, transportation costs and rental/real estate prices being the main factors). Looking at just direct price conversions for flour, milk and bread US prices seem significantly cheaper. I guess their median pay is just that much worse.

    That’ll show the man! Being the entitled and lazy generation wasn’t enough, it’s time to be an all around piece of shit.

    like most of these ghosters have the years of experience with bad employers to even justify the actions. I get it, a lot of places deserve payback. But the restaurants around me that are shut because they can’t hire are mom and pop places that have always paid competitively and treats their employees well. Yesterday we went to one of my favorite places and they only had one server as two no showed and were backed up and turning people away.

    My favorite local steakhouse is offering 70k for the head hostess and can’t fill that or part timers. This young generation doesn’t want to work, they’ve been indoctrinated and believe the government should give them money for being born. Why? Because the Dem Reich did just that and gave money to every Tom Dick and Harry to stay at home for 18 months because .00000001% chance of getting hospitalized was out there

    it's because people have be susceptible to the propaganda pushed in the last year and a half, in that short amount of time, the minds of the public have been poisoned.

    saw the piece on crowderbits that 41% of democrats , 35% of independents, and 28% of republicans thought there was a 50% hospitalization rate with covid.......... that's like the majority of people that think for ever two people that got covid, one was hospitalized. The public is still scared silly over this shit.

    First off I’m not comparing it to other nations. Second, do you understand economics? If you raise the price of labor it has a direct effect on the price of goods. Citizens would demand a higher wage because they won’t do it for minimum wage. We got down to a low of 3% unemployment which included migrant workers. What do you think happens when you remove that workforce? Labor shortage, wages go up, prices go up.

    I didn't think our boomers would go that deep on corporations. Thanks for proving me wrong. Are the nurses ghosting the hospital lazy too now? People will only take shit for so long before enough is enough, why is that so difficult to understand?

    A big problem I see is that the two week notice has been weaponized against workers. Far too many have given their notice to be told no you're gone now, leaving them with out pay for that time or have had their new opportunity sabotaged by their former employer. In this day and age I'd say it's far safer for an individual to just walk away.

    You named yourself foxnewsfan on an anonymous internet forum.

    So naturally I assume you're an expert on the subject of being poor and agree with you 100%

    I just got done looking for jobs in IT and my experience was the exact opposite. All entry level jobs required a year or 2 experience. Which most of the time can be bypassed with a good interview showing you know your shit.

    The amount of jobs requiring degrees has drastically decreased. Out of like 50 jobs with 7+ years of experience needed maybe like 3 absolutely required it. The rest were all willing to supplement job experience for it.

    Never ghosted a company but I’ve sure had HR departments that just ghosted me and didn’t have the decency to tell me I was out of the running. I remember interviewing at one place, then a month later interviewing at a second place that I eventually took a job with. A month into working there, I get a call from the first place (two months after the first interview) saying I got the job and when can I start. I was honestly stunned they somehow thought someone would assume they were still being considered that long afterwards. I obviously told them I could take the offer and the person was pissed. I’m pretty sure what happened is they hired a different candidate, they bailed after a few weeks cause the employer was terrible and then they scrambled and tried grabbing a second, third, etc choice. Really think I dodge a bullet though cause at one point I thought I wanted to work there out of the places I interviewed at.

    Honestly, it’s nice seeing a tighter labor market. Wages had been stagnant for a long time until maybe the past three years there were some signs we’d see increases. I thought covid might fuck that all up but it just seems like it temporarily delayed it and we still will see it.

    What's entitled about it? If companies are allowed to fire at will then workers are allowed to quit at will. I don't hear anyone calling Walmart entitled when it lays off thousand people to balance out its books.

    Quitting a job doesn't make necessarily mean that you have entitlement issues. A feeling of entitlement could certainly lead to someone quitting a job, though.

    Hoping to find new job myself and checking out ads.
    I am seeing a lot of:
    "Arrive on time daily. Every. Day."

    Currently working from home as are my co workers and the amount of late ppl for a 9am shift...holy shit.
