    An IHOP in Wasilla, Arkansas, posted a sign targeting President Biden for giving out "way too much free money" after the restaurant had trouble hiring workers. The restaurant wrote, "Due to the fact that Biden gave out way to (sic) much free money and nobody wants to work anymore. We are forced to reduce our hours during the week."

    The restaurant listed its new hours as 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and 7 a.m. - 10 p.m. on the weekends.

    Hey @IHOP , my family and I genuinely enjoy going to your restaurants. But if this is corporate policy, I guess we won't be visiting anymore. I know we're just one small family,and we don't matter, but we can't eat at a place that condones this. pic.twitter.com/wral1bw3aI

    Some supportive messages were posted on social media, including, "Hey iHop, my family and I don't normally eat breakfast out but I will make it a point to support your business because you dare speak the truth at a time it's being silenced." Another stated, "Kudos to iHop for being truthful and not freaking woke. Think our family of 6 will stop by."

    Last July, a Taco Loco in Folsom, California, posted a sign reading, "'To our loyal customers. Sadly, due to government and state handouts no one wants to work anymore. Therefore, we are short staffed. Please be patient with our staff that did choose to come to work today to serve you."

    Last week, the Department of Labor's Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey (JOLTS) admitted there were 11.03 million job openings in the United States - exceeding the number of people actively searching for work by 3.6 million, as The Daily Wire reported.

    CNBC reported:

    The JOLTS report is closely watched at the Federal Reserve and elsewhere for signs of labor market tightness...

    The coronavirus pandemic has seen quits surge to what had been record highs. Even with October's decline, the level is still 24% above where it was a year ago. Economists generally see the exodus as greater opportunity in the pandemic-era jobs market spurred by many workers still reluctant to come off the sidelines either because of child-care issues or health concerns.

    Through November, the labor force was still about 2.4 million smaller than what it had been in February 2020. The total employment level was more than 3.5 million down.

    Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX), the Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee, told The Daily Wire last August that President Biden's American Rescue Plan's $300-per-week enhanced federal unemployment insurance was "crushing Main Street businesses." He added, "Companies of all sizes simply can't find the workers they need, whether they're retailers, restaurateurs, or production lines - this is inevitable when you pay four out of ten Americans more to stay home than to work."

    "Though the enhanced unemployment checks expired in September, Brady observed similar distortionary effects from Child Tax Credits," The Daily Wire added.

    Earlier this month, Northrop Grumman chief executive Kathy Warden warned that labor shortages were problematic for the defense industry. "When I think about the challenges that we all might face going into next year, the labor shortages that we're seeing are suddenly one that's top of mind," Warden told CNBC's Morgan Brennan during an interview. "We have seen an increase in demand for the kinds of skills that we need to support our work at the same time that we've seen labor participation rates go down."
