Why Aren’t Americans Going Back To Work?

Why Aren’t Americans Going Back To Work?

[Music] the jobs numbers are out so i was a i’m aware of those numbers because we had been talking about them an hour or two ago actually off air and then the guy calls in and he’s working part-time and he doesn’t have the money to fix an engine in his car and he’s got a 19 interest rate needs to get rid of the car and all i can talk about is get a job get a job get a job and that’s not because i’m a heartless jerk it’s because dude you can fall off a log you can get a job right now the jobs numbers are i mean you can be dumber than a log and get a job right now because the jobs numbers are i’ve it’s bizarre what’s happening out there record numbers so the june labor department report came out monday and we’ve got 10 million plus jobs open available right now in the united states and you compare that to 8.7 million people that are still unemployed many choosing to be unemployed they’re they’re still getting the federal unemployment benefits that are set to expire on labor day ironically enough wait a minute wait a minute the unemployment ends on labor day yeah yeah so maybe it’s time to start planning to labor yeah yeah sometime before then yeah and the opportunities are endless dave million plus jobs here’s some good news in this job report because you hear a lot of doom and gloom so the ramsay show is going to give you the truth this is straight from the labor department if you look at the jobs 227 000 professional and business services jobs opened up in the month of june now that’s your white collar i think corporate jobs this is really encouraging 133 000 jobs in retail that speaks to consumer confidence that’s a good sign and then accommodation and food services that’s 121 000 jobs added opened right now uh it’s really unbelievable and and here’s the thing you and i were talking about during the break you’ve got companies like walmart mcdonald’s and target that have all announced in the last 10 days that they’re offering tuition they will pay for your college tuition and these these are these are jobs that dave are starting at 15 an hour it’s not this young man could go get employed right now and not just make financial progress but make some career progress so 15 an hour working 40 hours a week only yes just 40 which is really not working that hard um is 31 000 a year and free tuition yeah can really jump start your life it’s better than eight hundred dollars a month a year without what he was making so that was my point is there’s 8.7 million people unemployed there’s 10 million jobs it sounds like we don’t have any unemployment it just sounds like we have people not working it’s exactly what it is there’s a difference and what a great time to go get hired right now my goodness employers will throw jobs at you to your point earlier yeah i mean we’re in the process of hiring now we’re in a different league yes because of the type of elite person we’re looking for at ramsey solutions but we’re adding 300 positions this year and we’re getting a tons of bazillions of applications yeah and uh so i mean if you can go work at walmart make 15 bucks an hour work 40 hours and go to school full time which you can do by the way yes simultaneously uh go through and get your degree don’t tell me you have to take out a student loan and don’t tell me you’re starving to death that’s just ridiculous that’s exactly right and here’s the deal those dominoes are still beginning to fall you’re going to see a lot of other big companies that are going to offer tuition it’s going to become a thing sadly that people expect but companies are in a position right now where they’ve got to attract people i mean this is literally when we’ve got 10 million jobs well what somebody said you have to attract them not from other companies you got to just attract them off their couch that’s the problem because they’re sitting there making listen let me just talk to you if you’re sitting on your couch living off of unemployment right now i’ll just help you with this okay it’s not shaming this is just factual life from papa dave okay there is no dignity in your life when you are not accomplishing something with your life even if you are making a few dollars more sitting on your couch then you could be working you are not moving your life your career your wealth building the dignity of your relationships ahead by sitting there even if you make more is that well i’m not going back to work i make less work well i mean not how much less really but maybe you ought to work more so listen there is a tremendous correlation between the things that happen uh chemically inside your body your mental health your spiritual well-being the quality of your relationships not to mention the actual mathematics of going to work that’s exactly right you could find yourself theoretically getting ahead and i wouldn’t say by much but getting ahead financially but falling behind emotionally falling behind spiritually falling behind professionally look depression is a real thing when you’re not doing something that you feel like i’m accomplishing something that really starts to set in and you’ve got to be very careful and i think this is where we get into where we’ve got government policy that is disincentivizing people to get out and to contribute well to become what they were designed to yes that’s not designed to be a couch potato no you were created to contribute to work there’s no question about that and and i think you’re absolutely right it’s a scenario how many of us i mean even if you’re doing something like even just cutting the grass i’m not saying i’m not saying for money i’m saying when you do something that and you can look at the the fruit of your labor yes and you feel a sense of accomplishment there’s all kinds of things that happen not only in society but inside of you that are positive that do not happen when you’re sitting on your butt one of my favorite things to do around the house is pressure washing i get tremendous joy out of seeing the before and after and it feels really good to sit back even though you know it may be hot when you’re doing you say look this is better now because i actually applied you know some basic diligence here to hold a wand and shoot water pressure at something you’re right there is a sense of accomplishment accomplishment and there’s things that that changes the way you walk yeah it changes your posture it changes the way you relate to other people it changes your ability and your quality of your generosity yeah it change i mean there’s a there’s a whole soup of things here it’s not as simple as oh i’m beating the system i don’t have to work and the government’s going to take care of me i and listen if you if you’re down on your luck i i get it i’m not mad at you i’m not here to pick on you that’s not the thing the the point is though that that choosing and we’ve got these numbers that are telling us that there’s a large number of americans they may not be listeners to this show sure i’m probably not attracted to this show probably but but there’s a large number of people based on those numbers that could be working and just are choosing not to that’s exactly right and when you’re working you’re making progress whether it’s paying off debt or or funding your way through getting qualified to do the work you want to do you’re going to have to work at some point you’re going to have to and sitting at home right now and here’s the other thing this is not going to stay this way this is not going to stay this way forever this is a great time to move to actually get hired and i think of a young person you think of somebody right now going all right i went to college or i never got the chance to go to college couldn’t afford it instead of community college why don’t you go work for a big time company is going to pay your way to get a degree they’re going to fund your future i don’t know why you wouldn’t do that who cares if you don’t love stocking shelves i’m stocking shelves for my future yep yep it’s perspective it’s just a great place to go when you’re broke to work
