Labor shortage or wage shortage?

"...restaurants are reportedly having trouble luring workers back into the industry after a year of unprecedented upheaval."

The media often blames workers for "remaining unemployed", but now employees and job-seekers are standing up for better work conditions. What say you? #jobsearch #coronavirus

people stay on unemployment because most jobs are part-time, low wage and they actually loose money by taking the job versus unemployment. Then throw in child care, most can't survive on the jobs that are out there.

Many of these hospitality and restaurants companies pushed to have unemployment end because they have this alleged shortage. Were not telling the truth, as many of these positions that need filling are new positions and not old ones. I truly believed some of the companies fabricated their paperwork to get more money from those PPP loans, and now they have to show the people they listed that were either on furlough or rift due to covid.
Now, these companies are hurting because people are exploring all their options and not relying on a business that mistreated them, and constantly stated they couldn't raise the wages. I am sure these companies will develop a plan to bring in employees for the holiday rush and beyond, but cutting those white color employees only a financial means for their greater gain. Was and is not acceptable.

Wages shortages, bad work conditions. The people on top get all the money look at Besos and the people doing the hard work have overtime to get at flow

These workers put up with a lot from people. Should have higher wages.I was a waitress when young.Now I am a RN. People act nuts when it is food.It is overkill on their part. It is not the end of your life if something is wrong with your food.And you won't die if you have to wait a little longer for your food!Quit being rude to the waiters/waitresses.

No OT assistant should be treated this way. You are part of a team helping people heal and get back to their best.You need to look elsewhere. They should give you benefits.As for exposure to things,that is part of the job.I am a RN. I took care of HIV patients,hepatitis B patients BEFORE there was a vaccine, TB ,etc,etc.That is part of the work we do.I have had latent TB in my bloodstream I was treated for.Took care of a 3 year old who had scabies and MRSA(methacillin resistant staph aureus).Had a cut on my leg from shaving.bathed her,splashed water onto leg.Got MRSA in cut,had an infection.Had to be treated for that.It just goes with the work you do.But no excuse for the anti vaccine people here in Missouri who have zero respect for ALL hospital workers.An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!Don't know who wrote it but they were smart!
