While I was at the hotel in Augusta I talked to two members of the staff. One was a manager and the other was a housekeeper. They both told me the same thing. It’s hard to find people to hire. No one wants to work. Why not? If the gummint is gonna pay you more to stay at home than you would get by working why work?
I happened to notice a little note on the mirror in the bathroom that stated if you wanted to have your room made up you had to call the front desk and ask for it. WTF? This should be automatic, to have your bed made and fresh towels in the bathroom. Right off the bat this told me there was a staffing shortage which was confirmed when I talked to one of the housekeepers. She was 66 and on Social Security so this is good money for her especially since they gave her a raise to keep her.
The manager I talked to got a raise as well so she would stay on.
Remember the good old days when you stayed at a hotel you got fresh sheets every day? Me too. Now, to “save the environment” they no longer do that anymore. “Save the environment” my crippled ass! It’s to save the money.
So we got a really bad jobs report and President * said that means the country is on the right track. This really is Obumbler’s’s third term. I really expect to hear the Fake News Media start recycling stories from the Obungler years writing about Recovery Summer or Green Shoots.
I hope all of you * voters are happy that you voted for this booger eatin’ moh-ron.
On a lighter note, my sister, her husband, and I went out to eat Friday night. No one at the restaurant were wearing masks, that included the staff. The food was great!
