Yes, It's even difficult to find people to remodel or repair homes.

Too many businesses are finding it difficult to hire employees. Allowing more illegals into the country to fill the employee gap is NOT the answer..

I've heard people actually say, "I'm not going back to work when I can make more money sitting at home."

WOW, almost like people were not paid enough to begin with, sure people don't want to work if they are not paid what their work is worth

Liberals want people to be dependent on government handouts. Easier to buy votes that way so Liberals can stay in power and line their pockets with corruption. 10% for the Big Guy don't you know.

That's why trump tried so hard to get the 2000.00 stimulus checks and unemployment expansion passed before he left office because he's a closet liberalšŸ¤£šŸ¤£

To many people are bringing more in on unemployment then they were in their paychecks or for some it's about the same as they were making when working but on unemployment the benefit is they get to stay home for the same amount of money and for some they gained the benefit of no daycare costs.

Yes, but this is not as bad as what it sounds like. Unemployment benefits can help with frictional unemployment. In addition, it can allievate cyclical unemployment social costs that increase with joblessness, like crime, discouraged workers leaving the labor force, family health etc.

4 boards to replace on our deck was almost 5xs what it was last year. Fuel has doubled since Biden took office and groceries have doubled some have tripled

The price rise in building materials has caused me to put off building a new house. When your on a fixed income higher prices effects your purchasing ability.

The items that have gone up the most have not been things I needed yet, but I feel for my friends and neighbors who are being affected.
