labour day 2021: workers want to work less and live more

Lying Flat We're told there is a labour shortage. Businesses can't find workers. No one wants to work.Why the shortage exists and what should be done about it are the subjects of much debate, and no small amount of disinformation.Within this shortage, there are two different streams: one a shortage of workers wanted to perform part-time, low-wage, repetitive jobs, and the other, unfilled positions that come with higher earnings and benefits packages. These are different issues, with d...
