I don't understand folks assuming the workforce shortage is b/c people don't want to work. Over 700k people died from Covid - many Frontline Workers (bus drivers, food service, HCWs etc) & many more are disabled from Covid. Honestly, the ignorance is so infuriating #Covid_19

There are unseen/unspoken of complications of covid that folks are battling daily. Many are dealing w/psychological consequences of having covid months/year ago. They are now battling paralyzing anxiety/depression/chronic fatigue. We have no idea how devastating this illness is

And those who are alive are wary of employers that are "back to normal" for this reason, because they don't want to be part of the next round of statistics.

And many are left unable to work because of the devastating impact of Covid-induced illnesses: fibrosis of the lungs, dysautonomia, blood-clotting disorders, neurological ailments, chronic fatigue, etc.

Exactly. I work with Covid patients all day and you could not pay me enough to drive a school bus. These jobs are dangerous!

A lot of the people who drive my kids' busses are retirees. I would not want the extra exposure if I was that age and had a choice.

Or… family members left sick, at risk, or kids that cost more to put in care than to take a low earning job

Exactly. And if you are a caretaker, can you risk bringing one of these variants home??
