. Effort and quality are tied to wages. Some people believe a worker should bust it for a low wage when we all know that is so wrong in every way. Thankfully workers are getting smarter. More pay is more productivity. Economics 101

Not feeling one ounce of sorrow. Nothing. Notta. Can't find workers look in the mirror for the reason.

I agree. Too many conservatives refuse to work. Will mess up their bennies. Time to replace them with robots. I mean it can't be that expensive. Old Commodore 64's would be on par with republican productivity levels.

Construction. For 16 years. Paid my workers well above the govt to start. Treat them like royalty they work hard. Treat them like just an employee they don't. I am fully in the workers corner.

Inside a window that leads to your conscience
If employers can't match the govt then they shouldn't hire. Easy call.

The dirtiest word in capitalism is not socialism, It's wage growth.

LOL. Oh, really? You ran a construction business for 16 years? So what rate did you pay them? What was your profit margin, annual net income? How much more did you charge your clients compared to other construction businesses?

The only way to get good help in construction is to pay people what they are worth and treat them with respect. Tradesmen can just pick up their shit and walk and be working somewhere else by the end of the day. Service industry people have to take what they can get, put up with tons of bullshit and keep their mouths shut.

Not when that higher pay is mandated, it isn't...

No matter how high you raise the wage, Johnny the McDonald's hamburger flipper will not be more productive.

We didn't hire unless we could pay our starting wage which was $17.96 per hour around 2000. If we didn't pay that we wouldn't have found workers. We had guys on our concrete side pouring and those building the structures. Good employers have no problems finding workers. Sketchy ones struggle.
