Anytime I bring up the labor shortage older individuals answer to the problem is "Nobody wants to work and everybody knows it." As the conversation goes on, the discussion switches to the small families today versus when they were growing up. I ask if they think that might have something to do with the labor shortage. The answer is nope, the young people just don't want to work.

Traditionally May is a temperate month, a more or less gentle easing into warmer weather. We enjoy the return of beloved bird species and the world turns green. Forsythia, lilac, bridal veil and honeysuckle spill their fragrances in the breeze, and we accommodate the gradual transition from extremes of winter to extremes of summer. This May the familiar patterns do not hold. Not long after mid-month, brutally hot and humid weather of the kind we associate with July moved in.
