We’re being informed that we’re within the midst of the worst employee scarcity within the historical past of america, however the numbers that we’re being given by the federal authorities recommend that there needs to be no scarcity of staff. As I’ll element on this article, we’re being informed that there are 107 million working age People that aren’t employed proper now. That’s an astoundingly excessive determine. Actually, it’s a lot, a lot increased than the height that we hit in the course of the “Nice Recession” of 2008 and 2009. In fact again then we had thousands and thousands upon thousands and thousands of unemployed People that have been completely determined for a job. Right this moment, the other is true. There are thousands and thousands upon thousands and thousands of open jobs, and employers are doing the whole lot that they will to entice folks to return to work. They’re dramatically elevating wages, they’re handing out large signing bonuses, they’re providing to pay for faculty, and in some circumstances they’re even fully waiving drug testing necessities. However though all of that is taking place, we nonetheless have 107 million working age People on the sidelines.
On Friday, we acquired some model new employment numbers from the Labor Division. In accordance with these numbers, there are greater than 100 million People which can be thought-about to be “not within the labor power” proper now…
The Labor Division’s Bureau of Labor Statistics introduced on Friday that 100,450,000 folks on this nation weren’t within the labor power in October, up 38,000 from the 100,412,000 in September.
That is the 14th straight month that this “not within the labor power” quantity has remained above 100,000,000.
However that determine doesn’t give us the complete variety of potential staff which can be on the sidelines, as a result of it doesn’t embrace anybody that’s formally unemployed…
Individuals who’re neither employed nor unemployed will not be within the labor power. This class consists of retired individuals, college students, these taking good care of kids or different members of the family, and others who’re neither working nor looking for work.
So to get the complete variety of working age People which can be “potential staff”, we have to add in these which can be formally thought-about to be “unemployed”, and in accordance with the Federal Reserve that quantity at present stands at 7.4 million.
As soon as we add 100 million to 7 million, that provides us a grand whole of 107 million working age People that shouldn’t have a job proper now.
Why can’t we get extra of them to return to work?
In fact there are a lot of that weren’t working earlier than the pandemic got here alongside and that also haven’t any intention of working now.
We aren’t actually involved about them.
However what ought to alarm all of us is that the variety of People that have been working simply earlier than the pandemic was a lot increased than the variety of People which can be working now.
So the place did all of these staff go?
Are they only lazy?
Are a few of them sitting at residence gathering authorities checks?
Have a few of them turn into incapacitated?
Have a few of them died?
For sure, an rising variety of People will not be working of their chosen fields proper now as a result of they’ve been pressured out of their jobs by numerous native mandates.
The excellent news is that the large OSHA mandate which was scheduled to enter impact on January 4th has been quickly placed on maintain by the Fifth Circuit court docket of appeals…
President Joe Biden‘s rule forcing companies of over 100 workers to mandate the Covid vaccine has been quickly halted by the Fifth Circuit court docket of appeals.
Attorneys normal for a number of states, together with Texas, Louisiana, and Utah, joined advocacy and enterprise teams within the petition, which isn’t the one authorized problem confronted by the administration over the rule.
Many conservatives appear to suppose that that is some form of large court docket victory.
It’s only a non permanent order issued by one court docket to halt enforcement of the mandate whereas litigation proceeds.
Finally, many courts can be taking a look at this mandate, and I’m solely satisfied that finally it will get to the U.S. Supreme Courtroom.
And at this level I’ve very, little or no religion within the U.S. Supreme Courtroom.
In the meantime, the Biden administration is already speaking about creating an extra mandate for corporations which have lower than 100 workers…
The Biden-Harris administration on Thursday is weighing if they need to develop the vaccine mandate for corporations using fewer than 100 workers.
In accordance with Occupational Security and Well being Administration’s (OSHA) federal guidelines launched Thursday, the company is “looking for remark to assist the company” decide if smaller employers with fewer than 100 workers can implement a coronavirus vaccine mandate “with out undue disruption.”
They wish to make it in order that there is no such thing as a escape.
If you don’t adjust to their orders, they wish to make it so that you just will be unable to work anyplace.
There are additionally rumors that the Biden administration is definitely contemplating a nationwide mandate for kids that attend faculties.
When CDC Director Rochelle Walensky was requested about this, her response was greater than a bit of bit alarming…
“I’ll at all times encourage that mother or father to get their youngster vaccinated, and converse to them in regards to the info and communication, and schooling that they want with a view to get their kids vaccinated,” Walensky stated. “Proper now, at this second, these choices are made on the jurisdictional stage as they’re for vaccination of different all — different vaccine preventable illnesses amongst kids.”
The Democrats don’t appear to grasp that the mandates are the primary motive why they only did so poorly in Virginia and elsewhere.
And in the event that they preserve pushing these mandates, they are going to get soundly defeated in 2022 and 2024.
However they’re going forward with them anyway.
It’s nearly as in the event that they don’t care in regards to the political penalties.
Within the short-term, the varied mandates which can be being carried out across the nation will power thousands and thousands of extremely certified People out of their jobs. Doing this within the midst of the worst employee scarcity in our historical past is totally insane.
Within the long-term, the results of those mandates will set the stage for a societal meltdown of epic proportions.
We have been such a divided nation earlier than Biden introduced these mandates, however now we’re quickly approaching a degree the place nationwide unity might now not be attainable.
A home divided will certainly fall, and due to Biden we at the moment are going through divisions that will by no means be repaired.
