The CEO of restaurant chain &pizza says there's no labor shortage, only a wage shortage.
He's been paying employees $16/hr since before the pandemic and says he's fully staffed.
He said he'd received more than 100 applications for each job this year.

So goes the claim that we need illegal aliens here to do the jobs that Americans supposedly won't do for a fair wage.

Some places here are paying $18 to $20 per hour to restaurant employees and some are still struggling to fill positions.

I don't know what area you live in but that might be the problem. IMO, we don't need a burger joint or chain restaurant on every corner and hiring illegal aliens is against the law.

I thought it was interesting to see many restaurants around here, when they had severe staffing problems...instead of going to 'automation' like so many warned they would do...instead, they closed early and/or only opened on certain days.

When do the stimulus checks stop?

I think that should go a long way toward ending the "labor shortage", no?

It's not only restaurants that are having trouble getting new employees.

Factories are struggling to find skilled workers for specialized roles such as welders and machinists. Manufacturers are even having trouble hiring entry-level positions that do not require expertise.

Manufacturing executives say part of the problem is that many young Americans just don't want to work in factories, in part because of fears about robots taking over and jobs getting shipped overseas.

...despite an influx of 2.7 million industrial robots in use worldwide, humans are still needed to produce the vast amount of goods.

"The robots are not taking over," said Lee. "A robot can pick up a box and move it, but a person can be creative and get ahead of what's coming."
Yet some robotics startups are seeking to capitalize on the shortage of skilled workers.

Businesses will pay what the market will bear. That's how free markets and Capitalism works. More skilled and experienced employees get higher pay.

Trucking companies and many other businesses are facing labor shortages too.
A NEWLY minted truck driver from trucking school gets $60K a year salary,and the Fed said inflation is transitory?
Prices are not coming down if wages stay elevated,no one likes an Indian gift giver employer !
Employers should not speak with forked tongue

There's no labor shortage, just a shortage of businesses willing to pay a decent wage

This I agree with.
