Liberal Dan Radio 07/21/2021: Did Covid Contribute to the Labor Shortage?

On the July 21, 2021 episode of Liberal Dan Radio we take a look at the so called “labor shortage” and what is causing it. Some have said that the shortage must be because 600K+ people have died during the panedmic. Others believe it has been caused by the extended unemployment benefits? And what is a “labor shortage” anyway? Do businesses and the government manipulate the totals to their favor? We will dive in and see. 

The olympics are starting this week. Has anyone played Plauge Inc to know this is a bad idea? We also now have two billionaires who have launched themselves into space. Could this money be spent more wisely? Are these programs needed to bring hope to America’s space program and children who yearn to be in the stars. Or are greedy people just playing with expensive toys? 

Those topics, Hypocrite of the Week, the Just Capital Minute, and more every Wednesday at 8PM Central on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That’s Right.
