Why are "they" saying there's a labor shortage when they won't hire me? Just because I'm over 50, have a tremendous skill set and would like more than just minimum wage for it, and have a great deal of business experience and won't put up with the "It's corporate policy" BS handed out by those who don't want to think or take responsibility for their actions. You'd think I'd be welcome. But I ask too many questions, and talk back to managers who want me to work 60 to 80 hours for 40 hours pay. I guess there is a labor shortage: a shortage of clueless, questionless, witless, helpless wage slaves. They've all gone to work for the federal government.
