Which post? because I have not commented or liked anything (at least intentionally) regarding gov benefits. If I could remove the hijack replies about gov benefits I would.The fact that the OP liked posts complaining about govt benefits for the unemployed and none of the posts expressing points about the completely different dynamics facing young workers today tells me quite a bit about why he's having difficulty hiring.
IF your referring to the one post i liked from ttrager, he talked about hiring someone and on start date no call no show..... reason for like was
we just ran into this two weeks ago, hired a guy at $5/hr more than his current job, plus he lives 10 minutes away, his other job was 35 min drive. On start date no call no show, a week later he calls says they offered him an extra $5 above our offer (se got a $10/hr raise) to stay and he would not be making the jump. Not exact situation as ttrager but the type of employee we are trying to hire i doubt would make anywhere near in gov benifits what they would here.
