Why People Aren’t Going Back to Work

Julio Rivera with the Reactionary Times joined John and Andy about how for over a year now, Americans have suffered through the worst global pandemic in over 100 years, the effects of which have been felt throughout all demographics within our diverse nation. With a new administration coming into power in January, Working Class Minorities, who were some of the biggest beneficiaries of President Trump’s economic doctrine, are suffering through COVID-19 related job cuts and working-hour reductions as a result of short-sightedness and job-killing new executive and regulatory actions taken by President Biden.

Make Excuses and Hide From Accountability

James Carafano, Heritage Foundation vice president for national security and foreign policy, released the following statement Thursday in response to testimony by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee:
“Secretary Mayorkas continues to show that he is simply not the right person to lead the Department of Homeland Security, especially the men and women tasked with enforcing America’s immigration laws and securing our borders. “Mayorkas repeatedly pleaded ignorance or dodged legitimate questions about the state of the border crisis. The reason why is obvious: the crisis has gotten so bad, those responsible for it are working overtime to avoid accountability and embarrassment for their failure to secure our borders and enforce our laws. “The secretary repeatedly misled the public about the border crisis, falsely blaming the Trump administration for the crisis President Biden’s policies created. He refused to acknowledge the Biden administration’s policies as a major factor in the massive increase in illegal immigration since Biden took office. He all but shed tears over the plight of unaccompanied minors (UACs) making the trek to the southern border, while failing to acknowledge the Biden administration’s role in driving a historic number of UACs to the border in the first place. “Indeed, Mayorkas has repeatedly promised that UACs will not be returned to their home countries. This combination of policy and messaging has encouraged more parents to endanger their children and pay cartels and smugglers to transport them to the border, because they know these minors will be guaranteed release into the U.S. The numbers are undeniable—in March, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) encountered 18,960 UACs, the highest number in the Border Patrol’s 96-year history. April saw the second highest number, with 17,171 UACs. The solution is simple—end the policies and the messaging that encourage this illegal activity. “Mayorkas had a chance to be open and honest with the American people today. He had a chance to acknowledge the failure of this administration’s policies. He chose to make excuses and hide from accountability. We deserve better. “To hold this administration accountable, the Senate should stand firm against the recent spate of nominees for critical leadership positions at CBP, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS), and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). These individuals should be rejected in favor of public servants who will restore our security and sovereignty at the border.”

David Radlo, entrepreneur and leadership expert, joined John and Andy about how he has been working with an upstate New York chain store to hire employees. “They have offered $17 per hour and $40,000 for full-time entry-level positions, with no takers. They have been forced to close locations due to a lack of labor. The customer demand is there, but the labor supply in the area is exceedingly tight. With Pandemic Assistance Federally and State, they can’t get their workers back at any price. They are being forced to move towards outsourcing labor from other countries and setting up living quarters for workers.”
