I went out yesterday into what is left of the real world. Here are some observations:

  1. Help wanted signs are everywhere. No one wants (or needs) to work because of COVID helicopter money.
  2. The plumbing company which was to finish the rough-in of my house in three weeks sent me an email stating that they would not be able to complete their contract due to lack of employees. I went in person to discuss this and was told that they are down to one plumber. They cannot even get manual laborers to assist the plumber.
  3. The cost of gas, food and construction materials continue to rise.

I previously wrote that 2/3 of small businesses closed last year because “COVID”. The Burger King here had to close last week for a short time due to no employees showing up to work. Another restaurant advertised for kitchen help and wait staff – two weeks later and not one application was submitted. These are not isolated incidents and I am confident that you are hearing/seeing the same in your areas.

On the flip side of the “COVID” coin, employees are holding their employers hostage. They want more money and have a dwindling work ethic. Sonic is offering $17/hr for employees and McDonalds is offering a $500 signing bonus. It does not take a genius (or politician) to see the writing on the wall.

For those sapient individuals who prepared for this collapse, civil war and great reset to the new world order, I commend your foresight and wish you well.

      Do not know where you live but its not in Texas. The amount of good paying jobs has gone down considerably and there has always been plenty of low wage service jobs that have always been considered beginning type of positions such as Burger King or Pizza Hut. Plumbers helpers are always available but the good ones don’t work cheap. Also, the illegal laborers need to go back home to the country they came from.

      Covid has some folks scared but the Covid stimulas checks do not pay the bills. Good luck with your house building project and always remember that builders figure out ways for the buyer to back out if the builder thinks they’re going to lose money on the house…happened to me before and I had to actually go to the home site every day and find out who the subcontractors were that where working on each part of the house and work directly with them to make sure the house was completed properly. Thats how I found out about the builder supervisor telling some of the subcontractors to not come in to finish certain parts of the house…like the electrical and then sheet rockers…etc.
