Everyone and i mean everyone should get unemployment and quit working.

Where is the government going to generate a tax base?

What will happen to "government services"?

Where will people go to get supplies, groceries, clothing, transportation, etc. if there are no businesses to provide anything, since the all knowing government is going to take care of everyone?

Some idiots want to defund the police, so now we have total anarchy, lawlessness, and total chaos.

Now that I think of it, isn't this is what out current "leadership's" end goals are?

Yeah socialism!!!!

Actually, if half of the individual taxpayers simply said, "We are not going to have taxes withheld from our paychecks this calendar year...instead, we will put them aside until next April 15th, and even then, might file for an extension,", the Fed Swamp would come to a grinding halt.

That was not a news article. It was an opinion piece with some economic data to support a position. It is largely a good assessment of what has happened. Higher income people making more during the pandemic while lower income gets hammered. The labor shortage is driving up wages which will act as a silver lining.

And all the money printing and artificial “raises” will spike the inflation rate at a higher ratio than these “raises”

Those new found high paying jobs will force companies to eliminate lower paying jobs (or cut hours) and the end result.....

not much “revenge” for the “underpaid”

funny how he leaves this out of his “opinion” (other than a vague reference)

We have been printing money for years. To only complain about it in the last 90 days means you really don’t think it is a thing. The last round of stimulus did not all of a sudden cause inflation to tick up. It does not work that way. Spikes like this occur when the economy has sudden jumps in growth. You need an Econ lesson.

These “high paying jobs” are the low paying jobs. The labor shortage is impacing the entry level jobs. Employers will not cut hours when they can’t find enough workers. Common sense tells you that when you can’t find the new workers you need, existing workers have to work more. Duh.

You are hyper fixated on a word choice (revenge) by the writer. “Byproduct” could be inserted and it would not change the meaning of the piece at all.

Unlike you, I've been consistent in my fiscal position, both throughout the pandemic and prior. (Trump spent like a drunken sailor, just like his predecessors) No stimulus without equal cuts (a decrease of an historical increase isn't a cut).... period.

That's what a real fiscal conservative believes.

And the word "revenge" was a calculated word Newman threw in there.... He's known for that.....

He's nothing more than a pot stirrer.

Well...his word choice really triggered you. Either that or you are just super pissed that entry level workers are getting paid more.

Me -- Let the market decide.

You -- Let the government decide (says the "fiscal conservative"
The market is deciding. You act like this last round of stimulus has fundamentally changed business forever. Business has had to bump wages a couple bucks an hour for entry level. It has no material downside despite your nonsensical assertions.

Expanded unemployment benefits won't last forever. If people would rather holdout and try to milk getting a few hundred extra bucks a week off of it for a couple more months as opposed to taking the available jobs in leisure and hospitality that are starting to come back in numbers, it's probably a sign that there's a major problem with the combination of wages/hours/benefits/work environment with the majority of those jobs, especially in light of the price inflation that's occurred during the course of the pandemic.

Even when the expanded benefits go away, employers trying to reach full staffing in these industries are going to have to bump pay some and/or be more consistent with work schedules to make it easier for employees to work second jobs and other side hustles.

That is if Biden does not end it because Trump favored it.
Trump favored automation? What are you talking about? Trump favors super low paid workers. That’s why he imports immigrants to works at his hotels and clubs and outsourced his manufacturing to China.
