people having to find their own way

people must be working because my job is super busy now.
I do logistics work for deliver companies.
People are buying tons of appliances for their new houses lately.
I mean I hope people aren't dumb enough to buy a house with unemployment checks!

I think that if our government can just get rid of hundreds and thousands of good paying jobs in the energy industry with an EO and tell those workers that they can just get another job doing something else...
Then it is well within the powers of the same government to get rid of welfare and unemployment benefits and tell those people to just get another job doing something else.

All of the job postings I am seeing right now are like, "minimum wage! (Less than that for restaurant workers). Must be available all weekends and holidays. No health insurance. No paid time off. Join our team!"
I have a great job. If I didn't, I wouldn't be applying for any of these jobs.

My conclusions are lower wage workplaces are having a hard time finding people is because who in their right mind would go back to waiting tables or doing a BS job when you can get the absolute security of waiting until the summer is over. Also if you are younger and have money or your parents or girlfriend/boyfriend is willing to pick up the slack why go back to nothing but abuse and actual hard work?
