11 Apr Disposable Narratives
Notice how disposable these media narratives are? When the message no longer conveys the “right” story to the peons, it goes in the trash fast.
You should – we heard it parroted CONSTANTLY 0n every outlet you can think of (except mine). TWO LEGIT OPEN JOBS FOR EVERY ONE UNEMPLOYED PERSON. LABOR SHORTAGE. Ca-caw, ca-caw. 🦜
Now that these narratives are no longer needed, they are tossed aside. Yet what happens to the people who believed this nonsense? Unfortunately, the MSM and their corpo puppet masters don’t care about that. In fact, I often wonder if they sit back and have a laugh about people who listen to their silly nonsense and take it seriously.
🔮 Prediction alert: if talent had actually won this talent war in the long-term, wouldn’t the economy look quite a bit different? Would we see leaked memos about how the balance of power needs to go back to Corpo America? Would The Fed want to see unemployment going up? To use the phrase du jour: c’mon man. This feels like the calm before a sudden rabbit punch knocks you out.

There’s often a lag between what’s happening in real-time versus what’s being reported to us. I personally do not think real unemployment is less than 4% right now. I also don’t think it will be long before we finally find out “officially” that unemployment is trending upward. Some of these open jobs are not really open jobs that will get filled. Some I am sure are up just for show, some are evergreen requisitions that stay posted all the time, and some are probably legit. What is the exact ratio there? I’m not sure, but I don’t believe 11.4 million jobs are truly open in America right now. I also believe that people who aren’t involved in HR / staffing work will look at statistics like that and get a false sense of security. “Oh, OK. Sounds like there’s still a labor shortage. Sounds like all is still well.” No. Nyet. Nein.

Before I start covering the other general headlines of the day, the only thing I can do is tell the truth as I see it and speak on what I am seeing in real time in the job market every single day. And I still feel bearish. I personally still feel that we are in a recession. I personally still do not believe that unemployment is truly at 3.6% and that there are currently two open jobs – two open and legitimate jobs that someone actually wants to hire for – for every one unemployed person who’s out there looking. I don’t believe that. I’m so sorry, but I don’t. It just doesn’t match up. It doesn’t sync up with what I am seeing in real time.

Bear with me here because I know I will get some pushback, but: what if the whole ‘2 legit open jobs for every 1 unemployed person’ was a bullsh*t narrative from the beginning. What if it was FAKE AF from the start? I was reporting last year that I thought it was an insane story and it did not match up with what I saw in the job market every day. Yet only just now are we seeing MSM articles in the vein of “ruh-roh, gang. Maybe that labor market ain’t so hot right now after all.” 🤦🏻♀️
Part of what causes that balance of power to return to Corpo America is the realization that no, we don’t have a record low unemployment rate and no, there aren’t tons of open jobs that pay a living wage just ripe for the picking.
🔮 Prediction alert: you’re reading the early warning signs now because Corpo America wants their power back. They also want you to RTO without griping. They’re preparing to dispense with the previous narratives because those stories no longer suit their purposes. Keeping you quiet and pacified is no longer necessary. The goal is now to put a shoe firmly on the back of your neck.
