Everyone is hiring.
Businesses are having to adjust for staff shortages. Folks are waiting hours for food. I’ve heard of Burger King here in Hamilton having only their drive-thru open due to nobody to work. Some other restaurants are cutting hours. Others are bumping up their pay and offering sign-on bonuses. A Captain Ds in Anniston was offering $100 bonuses to new employees.
What is going on? Well, there are plenty of folks still collecting unemployment. The current unemployment benefit amounts to something equivalent of a $16-an-hour full-time job. That all will change soon, though, from the looks of it.
