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

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.

Yes also here in moberly the McDonald's you pay for food that isn't done and isn't least made right like you want . I would go to Macon or Columbia and get way better food for cheaper price but has is now going up so it's better to stay home and fix home cooked food anyways better food and family ⏰.

Gas is now going up so just stay home and fix food and have family time is better then spending outrageous money on food at restaurant's that are price gouging and not making the orders right . All these place's would learn real quick if there was a boycott people not go out to eat they drop prices

If i pay as much there as a sit down place with better quality, I'll go enjoy my meal instead.

McDonald's prices are now price gouging and taking advantage of inflation. This is greed. For the same money, we can now get a healthy meal that won't ruin our health.

I eat less fast food for health reasons. If you use apps, fast food can be very cost efficient, especially depending on location. However it's still pretty bad for you, that's why I get it less
