You Can't Do It, My Friends

Immigration issue aside, I do get enraged at the regular newspaper articles about "worker shortages," especially for highly skilled jobs (and don't kid yourself into thinking a good produce picker isn't a high skilled job, even if it doesn't require a lot of highfalutin booklearnin') in the middle of nowhere. Want to attract good workers? Pay them. It's in all of those Econ 101 textbooks that otherwise rule our existence.
