Montana First State To Cancel Unemployment Benefits in Response To Worker Shortage

Unprecedented Worker Shortage is Killing the US Economy.

Trillions in Biden stimulus are now incentivizing potential workers not to seek gainful employment, but to sit back and collect the next stimmy check for doing absolutely nothing in what is becoming the world's greatest "under the radar" experiment in Universal Basic Income.

This is how communistic policies like UBI creates shortages—not just in labor but also products which also causes price increases when people can least afford it. Govt meddling is incompetent.

good.

many stories here about how no one wants to work because they can make more at home.

My wife is trying to hire well qualified people. 50k a year with great benefits. Someone did not take a job because it did not come with 6 weeks of vacation.

My wife is a manager and does not get 6 weeks.

I can’t imagine the self-worth of people that choose to stay home with unemployment.

They are in a horrible place, it’s going to take a lot to dig themselves out mentally.

6 weeks is the standard in the EU. I think you start with 6 weeks over there and then get more.

I get 4 weeks and usually find it a challenge to use it all up.

UBI wouldn't stop people from working because it doesn't tie to job status. IE you don't get it taken away for working.

The $250-$300 per child per month July to December this year is closer to UBI than the unemployment expansion.

As it struggles to staff up ahead of its May 22 opening, Valleyfair is boosting the starting pay for some positions to $15 an hour.

The wage increase at the amusement park in Shakopee is for food and beverage workers who are at least 16 years old. The park also hires some 14- and 15-year-olds, but they are not allowed to handle some machinery, such as fryers.

In recent weeks, Valleyfair had already bumped up the starting wage from $11.25 to $13.50 for food-service workers. But executives decided they needed to go even further to $15 to compete against other employers in the Twin Cities. With a little more than two weeks until opening for 2021, Valleyfair is still looking to hire another 300 people.

Last week, Punch Pizza, the Twin Cities-based chain of about a dozen restaurants, raised its starting wage to $15 an hour. And in March, Shooting Star Casino in northwest Minnesota raised its minimum wage to $16 an hour.

In recent years, several companies from Amazon to Target have also increased their entry-level wages to $15 an hour. At the same time, some cities such as Minneapolis and St. Paul are also phasing in $15 minimum wages over the next several years.

Hennepin County has gone even further and recently bumped its starting wage for government employees to $20 an hour.

As hiring ramps up following a year of steep job losses, some employers say they are encountering difficulty filling positions as some workers are reluctant to return to in-person workplaces and as things like virtual schooling continue to put pressure on family schedules.

At Valleyfair, where filling seasonal jobs is always a challenge, recruiters and managers are also contending with parents who may be hesitant to have their teens work because of COVID-19 concerns, Melissa Lutz, Valleyfair's human resources director, said. And the park has a perpetual problem with a lack of easy public transportation.

"Our location in the southwest metro is really difficult to recruit from," Lutz said.

"We have the natural boundary of the river, which everybody is nervous about taking a job over the river," she added, referring to the Minnesota River that divides the suburb from bigger neighbors such as Bloomington and Eden Prairie.

Also because of the pandemic, Valleyfair won't be able to bring in hundreds of international students as it usually does every summer.

Valleyfair typically hires about 425 international students every summer and houses them on-site in dorms. They come from all over the world, with large contingents from Ecuador, Jamaica and Dominican Republic, Lutz said.

She had been hoping to bring in about half that many this year, but realized last week the park will only get a handful at most. International students have to get an interview at a U.S. embassy in order to secure a visa. But many embassies are either closed, operating at reduced hours or focused on other visa programs, Lutz said.

Two years ago, Valleyfair recruited retired seniors to work a few hours in the mornings. But they ruled that out this year because of the pandemic.

Valleyfair is holding an in-person, socially distanced hiring event at the park on May 16. As an added perk, attendees, who have to apply in advance, will get to spend the rest of the afternoon having fun in the park before it opens to the public.

Punch Pizza, which has not yet reopened for indoor dining, was able to call back enough workers to be adequately staffed to provide takeout service, co-owner John Puckett said.

The decision to raise its starting wage to $15, which was much as a $4 bump for some workers, was more to reward current employees, he said. The move will increase its labor spending by 10%, or around a half-million dollars, but Puckett says he thinks it will pay off.

"If we have the best people, we think we're going to make it back in sales and better customer delight and loyalty," he said.

He didn't make the change to get a short-term bump in applications. But he acknowledged that he had seen a slowing response to job postings in recent months.

"But as you can imagine, that exploded when we made the [wage] announcement," he said.

I get 6 1/2 with the option of taking a couple of unpaid days, but it took me 25 years of being with the same company to get it. When I started I believe they gave me 8 days which was 8 more than what my previous employer gave me.

Just look at the Pubes here carrying water for their business special interests. So disgusting to see the Stockholm Syndrome you have with folks who have wrecked the country with cheap illegal labor AND captured nearly all wealth growth to the top 5% over the past 40 years.

Here’s an idea: raise your wages, assholes. It’s called supply and demand.

Well yes, they can raise wages, but that should be done to reflect a natural labor shortage not one caused by the govt for stupid lockdowns and generous welfare benefits that pay people to not work.

Same for trying to offset what they consider a labor shortage ( when they claim that to create cheap labor using the state) by allowing mass illegal immigration, overly generous visa policies for foreign workers to keep salaries down (except for exceptions) and visa abuses.
