Across the nation people are calling it quits.
They're calling it "The Great Resignation" and it's a big part of the worsening labor shortage.
Whilst we don't want to "trigger" anybody to drink or quit . . . We gotta kick out of these throwback booze cans from a more civilized age when Kansas City didn't submit to the tyranny of craft beer drinkers.
Here's just a bit of background from both sides of the story . . .
The Great Resignation is among the greatest threat in the economy. Since the surge of the pandemic, more and more people have quit their job.
If you are like millions of Americans, you may dream of quitting your job. You may be burned out, want to do something new or are simply inspired to find something better thanks to the " Great Resignation" wave happening across the country. Several surveys have shown that many people want to walk away from their jobs.
Retail workers are finding refuge as they move into marijuana-related jobs, The Washington Post first reported. The legal cannabis sector is currently one of the fastest-growing industries in the US. Millions of people across the US are quitting their jobs in the Great Resignation, fueled by COVID-19 pandemic stresses.
Apparently, this trend is already at play locally . . .

Actually . . .
COVID has inspired nurses and teachers to quit in big numbers throughout the metro and those highly skilled positions aren't filling up quickly.
And so . . .
Tonight we contemplate the workforce and yet another threat to local capitalism and commerce . . .
Context and an alternative way to think about this crisis so that we don't fall into a reactionary trap . . . More cash for the plebs, who are willing and able to work for it, is mostly a good thing . . .
And so . . . As is our tradition here on www.TonysKansasCity.com for Saturday night. We share a playlist . . . This time on the topic of calling it quits.
Classic rock & roll for night owls . . .
90s classic apropos for the job market . . .
It's all about breaking free . . .
An exit anthem for nearly every occasion . . .
You knew this was coming and it's pretty much a Kansas City Country music classic . . .
As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe and fun Saturday night.
