As the title says. With borders closed for the first time since the 19790s business is strugglinto find labour. Wages are going up even in unskilled and semi skilled jobs. The minimum wage is around $15 usd, average wage close to $20 usd with some jobs having to offer $6 (approx $4.50 usd) more per hour. $30+ an hour to do things like warehouse work. Highly skilled workers in it are creaming it from the sounds of it. I've heard of 30% payrises. House market is still borked bit not bad of you own one already. Who would have thunk it? There's a backlog of visas to process as well personally I would just rubber-stamp all the IT, health professionals, tradespeople type ones.
