Media writing lots about people being unemployed and businesses getting thousands of applicants as if theres nothing to do with it.

Idk, maybe imposing a 4 hour work day would force employeers to employ more people?

also, there was a trend of increasing requirements on job applications in 2008, and it seems like that's happening again.....

In other words, when there are more job seekers out there, employers raise requirements because, as one CEO noted, “[t]he recession is a wonderful opportunity to acquire top talent.” src

so media can be like 'theres no qualified workers!' uhhhhhh

Being unemployed sucks.

Or rather, having no money to live
