Woulda Been a Good Idea to Rubber Stamp Back to Work Bonus instead of Bad Biden/Beasley | Eastern North Carolina Now | Ted Budd Offered a Positive Alternative to Encourage Folks to Get Back to Work but the Biden Administration Prefers to Pay People Not to Work and Cheri Beasley, Once Again, Was Happy to Support that Bad Biden Idea

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

    The Charlotte Observer reported earlier this week that Biden/Beasley policies have created an economic environment that is "bludgeon[ing] small businesses" in NC. The article focused on inflation but also discussed how job creators can't find folks who will work.

    Excerpt 1

    Sikiotis, 59, gets to work at 6 a.m. each morning and works several hours past closing time at 2:30 p.m. There's been a "hiring" sign on Green's window for the better part of two years.

    Excerpt 2

    He's been short on staff during one of his busiest seasons.

    Excerpt 3

    Even after boosting employees' pay by about 30%, he's still struggling to find enough staff.

    Workforce shortages are a major problem across the state. The News & Observer reports that Wake County schools are faced with a bus driver shortage. School administrators "cited the tight labor market" as the reason for the shortage.

    Cheri Beasley supports Biden policies that pay people not to work. Last summer, in an effort to help make life better for North Carolinians, Ted Budd introduced the Back to Work Bonus Act. This legislation would have used Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation benefits to offer a bonus to people who got a job.

    The North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association, representing North Carolina's $27.3 billion hospitality industry, said "the labor shortage in North Carolina has reached critical levels and restaurants are having to shut their dining rooms for days, not due to restrictions but rather to lack of staff. The North Carolina Restaurant & Lodging Association supports Rep. Budd's Back to Work Bonus Act to help encourage and incentivize as many people as possible to safely return to work."

    Organizations supporting job creators supported Ted Budd's efforts to make life better for North Carolinians. Democrats like Cheri Beasley supported the Biden policies that make life harder and, since then, community favorite restaurants like Price's Chicken Coop and Mr. K's in Charlotte, have been forced to close.
