Americans have long been among the hardest-working in the world. But Biden’s mishandling of Covid has caused millions of our best workers to quit their jobs each month. The “Great Resignation,” as it’s being called, is leading top workers in every field to resign from their posts. This is leaving America without the manpower necessary to keep our great country running.
Americans expect good service, and we do not tolerate long waiting lines and shortages that are familiar to people in many other countries. When hundreds of thousands are stranded at our airports as pilots don’t show up for work, millions of Americans are outraged by the disruption. This isn’t just theory, though. In one weekend alone, American Airlines cancelled more than 1,900 flights, and then cancelled another 340 flights on the following Monday morning. Come to find out, pilots and other airline employees do not like being told to take an experimental vaccine or be fired.
More than just pilots are deciding not to show up at their jobs. Amid a substantial loss in uniformed officers in Los Angeles county, homicides are up by 44% and aggravated assaults have increased by 23%. Those numbers are just a snapshot of a nationwide worker shortage in almost every major industry.
Academic experts discuss this new phenomenon but ignore that Biden’s vaccine mandates are the primary cause. Trucking and other companies are warning the federal government that they may stop doing business with it unless it backs off of its Covid vaccine mandates.
The Biden Administration would like nothing more than to convince you that the Great Resignation is a natural outgrowth of market forces, but Americans should not fall for their political blame-shifting. Biden and his handlers created a perfect carrot-stick combo of awful political judgment. The carrot was paying workers more to stay home than to go to work. The stick was threatening workers with vaccine mandates. Big corporations like McDonald’s and Walmart will weather the storm, but countless small businesses have already fallen to the left’s economic incompetence. America’s businesses do not need the kind of “progress” the left is selling.
