Most of the news from Tuesdays’ Coronavirus update news conference in Ohio concerned relaxation of quarantine requirements for Ohioans who’ve been fully vaccinated against the virus. But, there was a bit of news that I quite frankly found startling! Citing information from Ohio Means Jobs, Lieutenant Governor John Husted said more than 180 thousand jobs are currently available and are unfilled in Ohio, more than 92 thousand of them offering starting salaries of 50 thousand dollars per year or more. That’s in a state of 11.8 million people according to the 2,020 census. There are some among us who believe governments are making it far too attractive to stay out of the work force, and that young people aren’t being encouraged as we were to get a first job while in high school to learn how to balance work requirements with extracurricular activities. There are other factors in the work force issue, a lack of needed skills, and the lack of affordable child care for potential workers among them. One thing is sure. It seems the time will come sometime in the future that governments who get their support from people who work, will no longer be able to adequately support people who don’t. That’s the way I see it.
