During Friday’s broadcast of Fox Business Network’s “Cavuto: Coast to Coast,” Rep. Ted Budd (R-NC) argued that part of the reason for the labor shortage is that there are “a number of people who are very sensitive to the fear that the Democrats have created” and in order to solve this problem, “we have to stop this manufactured series of crisis after crisis that the Democrats are doing and let it be known to people that it is safe to go out to work.
Budd said, [relevant remarks begin around 2:20] “[Y]We see a major gap between the demand for jobs and people’s desire to go there. There are just a number of people who are very sensitive to the fear that the Democrats have expressed. And I was asked this question last night, how do I get people back to work? Because there is such a demand for people. This is one of the supply chain issues. We need to stop this fabricated series of crisis after crisis the Democrats are doing and let people know it’s safe to get out to work. We need medical truth and we need to end these warrants.
