The wife was on duty this weekend.
She went to Moe’s South West grill. For those if you dont have this chain, it is a fast food like Tex-Mex food. She got lunch for her and some of the guys who have to sit on the floor (has to be manned 24-7).
Well, they are advertising for positions starting at $17 an hour.
And the menu has been pared down to 5 items, so it is not like having to know how to make a dozen or more food stuff.
Yup but why work when you get paid to sit at home, play video games and get high? I’ve not seen an eatery or retail that’s not looking for help. McDs was paying $50 just to show up for an interview on tv the other day.
Socialism in action.
It’s true of any small business, not just eateries or retail. No one can find employees because of these Santa Clause comes to town unemployment checks. And it’s universal– the news is just starting to talk about it, but it will restrict economic growth for sure and may be the nail in the coffin for many a small business. Then, if this cybersecurity/grid hack exercise this summer results in the real thing by fall, we’ll all be hurting.
