Someone is lying..worker applied to 60 entry-level jobs in September got one interview

A worker in Florida applied to 60 entry-level jobs in September and got one interview


Joey Holz recalled first hearing complaints about a labor shortage last year when he called to donate convalescent plasma at a clinic near Fort Myers, Florida.

"The guy went on this rant about how he can't find help and he can't keep anybody in his medical facility because they all quit over the stimulus checks," Holz told Insider. "And I'm like, 'Your medical professionals quit over $1,200 checks? That's weird.'"

Over the next several months, he watched as a growing chorus of businesses said they couldn't find anyone to hire because of government stimulus money. It was so ubiquitous that he joined a "No one wants to work" Facebook group, where users made memes deriding frustrated employers.
Coleen Piteo, director of marketing at Yours Truly restaurant, puts out a sign that says, "Free Food" and "Hiring all positions" to lure in job applicants.

He said he found it hard to believe that government money was keeping people out of the labor force, especially when the end of expanded federal unemployment benefits did not seem to trigger a surge in employment. The expanded benefits ended in September, but 26 states ended them early in June and July.

Ignorant Sen James Risch, R Wishes Navy a Happy Birthday with Photo of Chinese-Made Warship

A U.S. senator’s birthday greeting Wednesday to the U.S. Navy on Twitter turned out to be anything but happy after commenters noticed the photo of a ship accompanying the tweet was not one of the Navy’s.

“For 246 years, the @USNavy has answered the call to defend America from threats abroad so we can remain safe at home,” Sen. James Risch, an Idaho Republican, wrote. “Today, we celebrate them.”

Below the message was the U.S. Navy logo over a somewhat shaded photo of a large, gray vessel.

“Not a U.S. ship,” Dave Brown, defense editor at Politico, tweeted back. “Appears to be a Pattani-class offshore patrol vessel belonging to the Royal Thai Navy, which means in it was built by China.”


YAY! Facebook down worldwide!
