I was watching CBS’s Sunday Morning this morning and they had a segment titled “Help Wanted”. It was about the ever-present labor shortage in the skilled trades has been brought front and center before the public eye. There’s simply not enough plumbers, electricians, carpenters, & masons to get all the damage that the recent flurry of hurricanes inflicted on the U.S. and its’ territories. Help Wanted 8:55

Larry, I think very, very few people realize how huge this issue is and the impact of what is coming.
Bottom line is that the government is going to have to stop paying people not to work, but I have heard no one bring that up in any significant way.
Much wailing and gnashing of teeth coming soon due to all this.
