They're baffled! Absolutely baffled!
You remember how a few weeks ago, on Labor Day I said that business owners were celebrating the predicted end of this supposed "labor shortage" because that marks the day unemployment benefits came to an end?
Well, guess what?
Those job applications didn't come pouring in, as they would have hoped. In fact, people are still sitting on their asses, refusing to work.
Hmm, it's almost like it's not the unemployment benefits to blame but their low ass wages that their offering at these jobs.
Michael Lastoria, the owner of &pizza offered a $16 minimum wage and saw hundreds of applicants come in, in every single position the company offered.
Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments saw his profits TRIPLE in the past half decade after making the bold move to raise the minimum salary to $70k a year.
It's guys like these that represent the fact that people are not only willing to work, but be extremely productive in that work (and help skyrocket company profits) if they are given a decent goddamn wage.
Like I said, we're done working for shitty wages. It ain't cuttin it, man.
We'll sit at home on the couch all damn day, unemployment checks or not. At least until we're compensated fairly, and we'll procrastinate. We'll wait until that opportunity arrives.
We know our labor, our efforts to get up off our asses, are worth a helluva lot more than what the typical corporate company is offering us.
Yet most CEOs wanna follow the corporate protocol of exploiting workers for the benefit of the owner and shareholders.
Our laziness is speaking loud and clear "If you want us back at work, pay us more". Point blank. Simple.
I love it. We're seeing a national protest of procrastin8rs uniting together and it's great to be a part of it.
I mean you figure, why work so hard just to be poor?
It doesn't make sense. Best to be lazy. I mean, you'll be poor either way, right? Might as well sit at home then and refuse to work.
