my brother in law works at Kimberly Clark, a large mill. Back in the day, if you got a job at Kimberly Clark you were set. High wages, 401K, Health Insurance, the works. He tells me that they are having a hard time finding workers (not that working in a mill is a high skill position mind you). Got so bad that they had to go to Temp Agencies. Now they are hiring people with ankle bracelets (you know, the ones that you get from the Courts) The mill has 16 machines and have only enough staff to run...............................................3 machines!

Ya he said this month was the last month for the unemployment stuff
Its about to get real. Or, they will roll out some new freebies. I think they will work on some new freebies as they need the voters. Buying votes, buying votes, buying votes…

Something going around called the "twisties" and I hear it's debilitating. A mental health disorder that keeps you from preforming your job regardless if you earn millions or $18/hr for sacking groceries. Sounds like if you come down with the "twisties" you can make even more money doing nothing at all.
