if more took jobs that were there, rock and rolled in their new role, then the quality and productivity of that company goes up. so does profit and more chance at higher earnings.

plus there is a cascading postive effect at the state level. the burden of unemployment subsides and more folks are on a payroll paying taxes and buying stuff, and paying sales taxes and then health benefits.

the labor log jam in its current state, may only be solved by some humility.

It's a cycle... a lot of companies are greedy and a lot of people don't want to WORK hard... those aren't the only problems, but they are major ones.

Innovation and productivity have increased dramatically but for some reason incomes have not increased at the same rate and have even went down..

Productivity, hours per week, and income used to get along quite well. Now the American worker is more productive then they have ever been in history yet they work the same hours and now at a reduced rate because it helps the bottom line.

From what I've seen productivity has skyrocketed, but desire has taken a nose dive. I'd say that's most likely due to the top of the food chain pocketing the profits rather than trying to better their workforce.

That will destroy our whole economy eventually. If you truly love capitalism, you better be adopting some "socialist" policies soon.

I have said it many times. If a ceo created his or her biz from the ground up you can make as much as you want. If you were given the keys to an already running machine then only so much.
What figure or % is I don't know how you get there.
We should also put Congress under the scrutiny that ceos get. You can vote with your shares or wallet each year or quarter but 2 or 4 years with congress.
At worst we should have a similar health plan as them.
