    There is more to it than that, and I don't want to risk getting political and opening up a hate debate, but there are a aton of very well-paying jobs out there that can not or are not being filled. It seems that the whole "stealing our jobs" mantra and subsequent actions to limit the inflow of migrant workers and immigrants either worked or was a farce to begin with.

    Who is going to do the undesirable jobs, now? We can't even fill the desirable ones!

    Read the news. There are companies offering the world for good new employees.

    Even some normally lower paying jobs are offering $16-20/hr to flip hamburgers or clean hotel rooms.

    The great resignation cannot last forever. Eventually the people who left the work force due to covid will have to re-enter it. But you are right. My brother owns a burger joint and he cannot find help. Heís raised pay by 50% and severely limited his own profits and he still cannot get help
