The local news this evening reported this is happening all over the country.

Denver hospitality workers seeking greener pastures

Leisure and hospitality along with accommodations and food services have the nation’s highest quit rates. Those three industry brackets are losing workers at twice the rate of the country’s industries altogether.

“A lot of those service economies were greatly impacted,” he said. “Those employees feel very much at risk. With so many opportunities to match higher starting salaries. Those are the industries where those people can match their previous salary that might seem more secure to them.”

Interesting counterpoint to the whining "JCs" I see on the news every night complaining "no-one wants to work". Got that right bunkie, no-one wants to work for your lousy pay and hours, because they have better opportunities.

In a conversation I had elsewhere, we discussed the increasing rates of retail staff being beaten, stabbed, and shot, over stupid minor stuff like masks, and soaring rates of shoplifting, and the first thought in my mind is is a retail clerk watching a shoplifter cleaning shelves going to wonder if the perp has a gun or knife that he will use if the clerk interferes with the shoplifting, and decide he is not going to give his life defending a box of tampons.
