Except … is it $ 17? According to Kim's logic, I shouldn't be able to show up there and order that, or maybe the "lasagna" (California Roll, baked with flavorful aioli, eel sauce, and cream cheese, for $ 13) and be everything "Why is" How much should I pay? "the first thing you tell me the government should make you take what I offer"? ($ 0 for recording.)
Generous unemployment benefits don't stop people from looking for work. Several studies show that last one of the commies at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco. And the Census Bureau found that even with the extra $ 300 a week, one in three unemployed still struggles to pay the basic bills. It's not the $ 300 a week that keeps people from working in restaurants that management is offended when asked how much the jobs are paying.
Some other restaurant managers have a better overview of what is going on.
"T.The world is opening again, ”Jeffrey Bank, CEO of Alicart Restaurant Group, which has restaurants in New York, Atlantic City, Washington, DC, the Bahamas and Las Vegas, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “When was the last time in history so many jobs were created in four, six weeks? This is an opening tsunami. Employees can choose where they want to work. "
That said, they can show up and ask how much you're paying and do a little comparative shopping. And their concerns may not be just about pay, although the question of pay may tell workers something about how much employers will value them.
"Sexual harassment, hostility and health risks are on the rise, ”said Saru Jayaraman, director of the Food Labor Research Center at the University of California at Berkeley and president of One Fair Wage. A survey conducted by her group found that 53% of restaurant workers are considering leaving the industry. Low wages account for 76% of them, but the sexual harassment and hostility likely don't make these low-paying jobs any more attractive. It's not, "Well the pay isn't great, but the people who return to Las Vegas first at the end of a pandemic just treat me with such love and respect that I can't wait to give them their 8-second cop." Bringing you drive sushi rolls at every pay grade. "
Things are rightly looking good. Weekly jobless claims have fallen to a pandemic low of 444,000 two weeks in a row (which is still a lot, to be clear). Immunization rates are still increasing, albeit more slowly than ideal. Unfortunately, Republicans and too many employers think that the answer to everything – including the United States not returning from a major global pandemic in the time it takes to snap their fingers – is to blame workers to give.
