You're the ones who got paid to stay home...

 But how - and on what - are you managing to survive? 

More than half of Americans who lost their jobs in the pandemic and remain unemployed are not interested in returning to work, according to a new survey suggesting that the dire national labor shortage is likely to persist.
The poll published on Thursday by the US Chamber of Commerce found that 53 percent of Americans who became unemployed during the pandemic say they are not active or only somewhat active in looking for work. 
Fifty-six percent say they can get by for more than six months before it becomes essential to return to full time work, with 11 percent saying it will be more than a year before it is necessary to return to work, and 15 percent saying it will never be essential.

  1. Well, I'm not on that list but the boomers, of whom I am one, are retiring so I could be in that fifteen percent. Seriously, a lot of people who were on the fence about retirement probably went for it.
