Media attention has been placed on the abundance of jobs and the shortage applicants. Blame is being placed on the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 with the implication that the $300 supplemental payment is paying American workers to stay home.

Christine Wong Rambo, an internationally certified and recognized economics expert, joins Karen Rands to discuss the quantifiable and measurable factors that are actually contributing to the labor shortage, and the stark reality of what needs to be done to change the directory.  This lively conversation includes discussion on the impact of:
