I wouldn't expect any change in the overall employment situation until all incentives for people to stay home have been lifted. Once people find they can stay home and live off the tax payers dollars why would they go back to work. Free phones (I pay about $75/month for mine), non-eviction protection from not paying rent, extra unemployment benefits, food stamps, section 8 housing, and now $300/month per child cash for tax credits. I'm sure there are more I don't know about.

And I worry I'll never be able to stop working when I reach retirement age. Actually, I'm there now.


Even Darwin Believes Now!!!
Governor Ron DeSantis could be one of the big 3-4 strong Republican candidates during the next election. I like the guy but of course would vote for Fred Flintstone or the village idiot over you-know-who…….
