    Thatís a lot of zeroes.

    Maybe the concern is that exponential growth will burn through those orders of magnitude like wildfire.

    More likely the focus is specifically on R_0, and not IFR, where R_0 > 1 has created a media-induced hysteria-R_0 >> 1. No way out of that.

    Pretty much all the ones that make a metric shit-ton of money. Because that's what drove them to put in all the effort it takes to do that.

    Unless you like building things or helping people in a retail setting. And a lower stress environment. Or you pass out at the sight of blood. But, generalizations.

I'm not familiar with EMTs specifically, but that's usually what's behind panic about tight labor markets--owners afraid their profit margins might be a little lower.
    Of course, just raise wages! Brilliant! In fact, you've inspired me to go switch my electricity provider to someone who will charge me twice what I'm paying now, because I need electricity and would love to pay more for the exact same fucking thing that I get by paying a lower amount.

    Speaking of raising wages, remember that time McDonald's workers wanted to make more and some ended up being replaced by self-order kiosks? And speaking of Home Depot, I'm pretty sure every customer there checks out at the self-checkout aisle.

    Yes, raising the cost of labor does wonders for the working class individual.

    Maybe Patrick will watch the Tom Woods video. I suggest doing so, if he wants to post again.

    Thatís one thing Iím grateful to the covid-hysteria for. Our kiosks are closed, because covid. The store was completely reconfigured to hide the cash register from people entering, and thus steer people to the self-serve kiosks. Perhaps to flatten the throughput curve. And now, they have been indecorously retired, each with a makeshift sign saying something like ďuse the register, for your safetyĒ. The previous store layout was much more covid-friendly, with wide open counterspace. Now the cashier is jammed into the corner of a box, a sure mark for the Virus.

    It's almost as if you have had a well-funded, coordinated effort by foreign powers (China, Soros, Islam) and domestic organizations (Democratic Party, Media monopolies, Antifa, BLM) to conduct a Soviet-style ideological subversion campaign.

    Hmmmm... I also wonder what he does for a living.

    The video is 47 minutes long. Is there anything specifically you'd like me to notice or comment on?

    About the same length of time it took me to read your marxist drivel. Go away.
