Time to Start EARNING Your Money Again: Montana Is First State To Cancel Unemployment Benefits In Response To Unprecedented Worker Shortage; DeSantis Tells Unemployed Floridians to Start Looking for a Job, and other C-Virus Updates

Montana Is First State To Cancel Unemployment Benefits In Response To Unprecedented Worker Shortage:
Three weeks ago, when looking at the unprecedented labor shortage that is crippling the US economy (even with some 100 million Americans not in the labor force}
...we said that there is a simple reason for this paradoxical phenomenon: trillions in Biden stimulus are now incentivizing potential workers not to seek gainful employment, but to sit back and collect the next stimmy check for doing absolutely nothing in what is becoming the world's greatest "under the radar" experiment in Universal Basic Income.
Consider the following striking anecdotes from Bloomberg:
  • Early in the Covid-19 pandemic, Melissa Anderson laid off all three full-time employees of her jewelry-making company, Silver Chest Creations in Burkesville, Ky. She tried to rehire one of them in September and another in January as business recovered, but they refused to come back, she says. “They’re not looking for work.” 
  •  Sierra Pacific Industries, which manufactures doors, windows, and millwork, is so desperate to fill openings that it’s offering hiring bonuses of up to $1,500 at its factories in California, Washington, and Wisconsin. In rural Northern California, the Red Bluff Job Training Center is trying to lure young people with extra-large pizzas in the hope that some who stop by can be persuaded to fill out a job application. “We’re trying to get inside their head and help them find employment. Businesses would be so eager to train them,” says Kathy Garcia, the business services and marketing manager. “There are absolutely no job seekers."
Even more amazing: a stunning 91% of small businesses surveyed by the NFIB said they had few or no qualified applicants for job openings in the past three months, tied for the third highest since that question was added to the NFIB survey in 1993. --->READ MORE HERE
DeSantis tells unemployed Floridians to start looking for a job:
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is telling unemployed residents in his state that they need to be looking for a job if they want to continue receiving benefits.
The Republican governor is reinstituting a policy, suspended during the coronavirus pandemic due to high unemployment, stating that Floridians must prove they are looking for work to receive unemployment benefits from the state, according to CBS Miami.
“Normally when you’re getting unemployment, the whole idea is that’s temporary, and you need to be looking for work to be able to get off unemployment,” DeSantis said Wednesday during a news conference. “It was a disaster, so we suspended those job search requirements. I think it’s pretty clear now —we have an abundance of job openings.” --->READ MORE HERE
