We all loves Jez, but you be careful. Ol' Wifehorn would say, that sounds like a recipe waiting to happen!

In the theater it's bad luck to say "Good luck". So you say, "Break a leg!". BAL, Jez! Visualize yourself getting the job as often as you can before the interview. It works.

The trade war won't hurt car makers at all. Just ask Thump. He knows everything. Just ask him. Now jobs, that might be a another story.

Didn't get the job. Oh well, it was kind of a long shot anyway. My pay range was quite a bit above what they wanted to pay. Guess I keep looking. :)

Blue Collar Worker Shortage Turns U.S. Labor Market on Its Head

A surprise shortage of blue collar workers is changing the contours of the U.S. labor market, boosting their pay, narrowing wage inequality and drawing more women into those jobs.

The shortfall is being driven by a shrinking supply of manual and low-pay service workers as the labor force becomes more educated and less willing to take on such jobs, according to a new Conference Board study.

“The divergence between blue collar and white collar supply is going to persist and even become bigger through 2030,” Gad Levanon, chief economist for North America at the New York-based research group and one of the authors of the report, said in an interview.

That is likely to keep upward pressure on labor costs in such industries as construction, transportation and accommodation and food services. It also has implications for inflation and for the Federal Reserve as Chairman Jerome Powell and his colleagues try to sustain the 9-1/2-year-old expansion without overheating the economy. Unemployment at 3.7 percent is the lowest since 1969 and running well below Fed estimates for its long-run sustainable rate. ...

Tighter restrictions on immigration are also playing a role and will continue to do so in the future, said Moody’s Analytics Inc.’s Chief Economist Mark Zandi. Many of those foreign workers are lower-skilled and in industries such as construction and farming.

Every job could probably be filled if you're willing to pay what people are willing to do the job for. Unfortunately, businesses can't always afford to pay that.

In my state, depending on the county, school bus drivers earn an average of $15.5-$18k/year. -- it's, at best, a supplemental form of income and you need another source to make ends meet. Plus, putting up with rowdy, obnoxious kids, passing a background check and having clean driving record. Plus, no work over summer break.
They probably deserve more since we entrust them with our most precious cargo.

Foreign labor limits likely to leave seasonal American businesses in the lurch — again
Unprecedented demand — nearly 100,000 requests for 33,000 available visas — briefly crashed the online Department of Labor application system.


https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/politi ... d_nn_tw_ma
She first started working for her family's small business, Lindy's Seafood, at age 12. She watched it blossom into a regional staple in the crab town of Fishing Creek, Maryland, before taking it over. But for the second year in a row, companies like hers that rely on temporary foreign labor are poised to take a hard hit, or possibly close altogether.

“I'm second-generation and, at this point, it’s hard to think that maybe I can’t do this anymore, but that's essentially where we are," Vincent, 31, told NBC News. "We're in a worse position than we were last year.”

The Trump administration is once again planning to use a lottery system to dole out 33,000 H-2B visas — the government program that allows businesses like Lindy's Seafood to hire those temporary foreign workers — this spring, rather than the first-come, first-serve model used under previous administrations. Businesses strained by the change last year will find themselves competing against record demand this year, according to the Department of Labor statistics. Compounding the problem, experts said, is that Congress is no closer to reforming the program than it has been since it was enacted it in 1990, despite pleas from seasonal businesses and their associations to act.

“Last year, we lost six months of sales, business and income," Vincent said. "To have to go through that again this year, it's just a matter of how long can you work two months a year before you fold?”

I used to babysit the child of longtime family friends, who later drove a school bus in Ft. Collins CO while she and her husband tried to make their brewery a going concern*. I remember her harrowing tales of driving in winter on the mountain roads, and being so aware of who her passengers were. She hugged each and every one as they got off the bus on the worst winter days.
