Crom’s Crommentary: Employment and the Dumb Ideas That Continue to Come from the Democrat Party

Live from Music Row Monday morning on The Tennessee Star Report with Michael Patrick Leahy – broadcast on Nashville’s Talk Radio 98.3 and 1510 WLAC weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. – host Leahy welcomed original all-star panelist Crom Carmichael to the studio for another edition of Crom’s Crommentary.


Michael, there were three articles in the paper that I read over the weekend, and they’re all related. They’re not on the same subject, but they’re all related to the same topic. And one of the headlines is: “Several Million U.S. Workers Seen Staying Out of the Workforce Indefinitely.”

Several million. Now you hear Biden talk about inflation. Now it’s not his fault. It’s Putin’s fault. Well, actually, it’s Biden’s fault. Part of the reason that we have inflation and that we have supply chain issues is that we have an extreme labor shortage.

One of the reasons we have an extreme labor shortage is the federal government has once again extended the COVID emergency. So the federal benefits are still going out. So people are still being paid not to work. And that article was on April 15th.

The Secretary of Health and Human Services, Becerra, extended the benefits for people who don’t want to go back to work. And so we have a labor shortage. Biden is responsible for the labor shortage. By the way, just as a side note, we’ve had over 2 million people who have illegally immigrated to our country in the last 18 months.

What are they doing? Are they working? Apparently, they also are living off of benefits because the number of people in the workforce is still considerably millions of people lower than it was previous to COVID in 2019.

And then the last article is California is now considering a four-day workweek. The idea here is that if you have a four-day workweek you’ll reduce unemployment. But there’s a catch. You can’t lower the weekly pay. So they’re moving to a 32-hour workweek.

It’s not four 10-hour days. It’s four eight-hour days. But you still have to pay them, to pay your workers the same amount that you were paying when they worked 40 hours. These are just staggeringly dumb ideas. And they’re coming from every area of the Democrat Party.
