Not all (of course) but most. And many times I wouldn't have known they were homeschooled until it came up in conversation.

      If I see one more meme from a jackwad complaining nurses are being fired because they won't get vaccinated I may take their eyes out with a dull butter knife.

      I may no longer have an electrician. We use a young guy who went to school with my kid. He is posting all sorts of sh1t about people can use a dressing room but not go to the Dr office (false dilemma BS). His mum is a nurse who has long covid for a yr and still is miserable with it. I lost my mind. Posted 90% of nurses are vaxed and it is a slap in the face for him to be posting BS while there are Nurses who have died and are still suffering. And then asked where his moral and ethical principles were (they are VERY Christian) that they were able to forget that it was important to love thy neighbor ... T

      The only good thing about this is it will kill off a lot of stupid people and cleanse the gene pool a bit. The bad thing is the collateral damage to get that

      I keep seeing all the job shortages blamed on mandates. Bullfeathers. This is capitalism, people. The workers are not willing to work for less dollars when they can go somewhere else (healthcare workers are going agency) and make decent money. Supply and demand.

      Folks love to whine about Socializm!!!1!!!!1!!1!! but when capitalism works they whine and carry on about how dare people should want more $$. And how dare they charge more when the overhead is increasing. Okie dokie. There is a new addiction in this country- Outrage. The way to get a fix is to believe the contradictory narratives are logical and can coexist

      What I am fascinated by is no one seems to have a problem with all the CEOs making bank- they are paid way more than they are worth and if they really wanted the company to succeed they would use some of that $$ to offer more for quality workers.

      I'd like to take this post to dinner and make sweet, sweet love to it.

        Correct: It's not Covid deaths per se affecting but Covid second-order impacts.

The cost of child care is so insane, you almost need to work full time to pay for it. So why work when you can maybe make a little less a year but have one of the parents stay home and raise the child. One of the many, many factors I'm sure.
          Child care has been a huge factor.

          Back to the talking point, it's one where it's thoroughly obvious that it hasn't been thought out given the tiny fraction of employees who have quit over this. As I'm sure we're all very aware, it's because of the extreme upward pressure on salaries. Several of us have posted comments about our employers hiring at huge premiums right now. My company even announced a new program to push ALL salaries upwards across the board, moving the market points, uncapping ranges, and automatically bringing people up to some minimum relative to market. They're desperately trying to retain existing employees and trying to hire new.

          It's not like we lost a massive fraction of the job market to COVID (even using 800,000, that's about 0.5% of the workforce). So I'm still a little confused where this pressure is coming from compared to October 2019. Could the stimulus from COVID be supercharging this? The child tax credit? This is the one thing I just don't quite understand. Because if this is transient due to the economy starting back up, we could see a pretty hard return to the norm over the next 12 months.
          I've said it before, but you do not make more money on unemployment than you would working my job, but we're barely getting any resumes for our open positions. We are fully remote healthcare IT folks and we don't even necessarily require experience in that specific field (I had none when I started 4 1/2 years ago). Our issue is that we're a hospital; we're broke and we can't afford to pay people their worth.

            • Have hiring practices changed at all?

              For those that have not had to legit job search on your own in the past 5-6 years, the average online job application takes 60-120 minutes to complete. At many of these low paying jobs, I can see that being a deterrent as well (again, "not worth the effort").

                Jebbers, there's more impacts from Covid than just getting better or dying from it.

                  Covid is a cold aka the sniffles for anyone under 65 and even remotely healthy. And for vast many it is nothing at all.

                    This has always bothered the crap out of me. There are a lot more impacts than just to those who die. The second and third order impacts of death are vast. And that, as you point out, is only regarding the 700,000+ who've so-far died. It says nothing about those suffering long Covid, or who might have medium-long term effects.


                    Covid deniers are flat earthers at this point, and deserve nothing but mockery. You aren't serious people and don't deserve to be treated as such.

                      You aren't a serious person and by the very definition to the letter, are a Fascist.


                      This is a fact and backed up statistically.

                      Covid is a cold aka the sniffles for anyone under 65 and even remotely healthy. And for vast many it is nothing at all.



                      And natural immunity is far superior to the booster subscription shots.

                      Pfizer currently has 92 lobbyists in Washington,
                      D.C. Johnson & Johnson has 67
                      Merck has 53 Gilead has 46
                      Natural immunity has zero.

                        Also, what about the families of those who've lost a loved one? What's been the impact on their lives? How much work have they missed? Have they taken leave? Just quit? Been fired for missing work, or not being as productive?

                        How are they coping, or managing to? Are they managing to? How are they able to drag their *** out of bed every morning and head off to their ****ty job every day?

                        Or has their world just effectively ended?
