April jobs report - The Washington Post

A growing tension in the U.S. economy — the potential availability of new workers — could come into sharper focus on Friday morning when the Bureau of Labor Statistics releases its April jobs report. The pace of hiring has picked up markedly in the past few months, a trend that is expected to have continued in April. Hiring has accelerated so quickly, in fact, that some businesses have complained to the White House and lawmakers that they are having a hard time recruiting workers, particularly for low-wage, hourly jobs.

I’m definitely not the first to say it, but maybe the problem here is that low-wage, hourly jobs suck, and that employers need to treat their workers better and pay them more.
