And before I forgot, why is nobody asking these companies WHY they are short of employees? What did they do with their interest free, forgiveable loan from the federal government they were given, to... KEEP their employees?

Where did THAT money go? WHERE DID THAT MONEY GO?

ArtistAtLarge - You forgot perhaps the seventh and possibly the most important reason - health care; or rather, the lack of a national heath care system which makes even a $15 an hour wage unlivable.

Thanks for the reminder Weasel. My fault for assuming that was common knowledge.

Medical care and insurance in America is a giant scam at every level.

Current unemployment money is now at $300 per week. The extra money that was being paid by the states in addition to the federal money ended almost 8 months ago.

$300 a week is $7.50hr. If companies can't pay more than that, then they deserve to suffer. Many of those unfulfilled jobs are part time, so pay far less than $300 week.

Another reason is lack of daycare and schools still closed to physical attendance. Many parents cannot go back to work.

A third reason is lack of transportation. Public transport is still limited. Many people also lost their cars from lack of money. Outside of NYC, public transport in America is bad to non-existent in a good year. You must have transportation to work in America.

A fourth reason is vaccination. Only half of the nation has been fully vaccinated.

A fifth reason is illness. If they had the virus, it takes months to recover.

A sixth reason is not that many jobs were actually available.

As Dagon, said, many companies are complaining in order to have Republican legislators cut unemployment benefits to coerce people back to work with unlivable wages. That is the ONLY reason we are hearing complaints.

Nobody is living well on $7.50hr. Nobody. And every penny of that goes right back into the economy just to survive.

Posted in: Working from home 'doesn't work for those who want to hustle' - JPMorgan CEO See in context

Bank CEO Jamie Dimon said he wants people back at work because exclusively working from home "doesn't work for young people."

"It doesn't work for those who want to hustle. It doesn't work for spontaneous idea generation. It doesn't work for culture," Dimon said

How could he get every word wrong? That takes talent.

Is he afraid he will no longer to be able to micromanage?

GDTokyo, there is a very old saying: "The map is not the terrain". This is especially true in Afghanistan.

The terrain there is known as the most challenging place on earth for military actions. It's WHY the Taliban and their predecessors have been able to hold control for centuries.

There is another old saying: "Never fight land war in Asia." Check Wikipedia for that explanation.

Money talks. Everything else walks.

Most restaurant workers have found other jobs in other fields and the pandemic is NOT over. So still not enough customers with tips and still too much risk. And everyone of those fields listed in this article as being the hardest to find workers are low paying, public interaction jobs.

Money talks.
