It’s easy to get a job these days, but who wants one?

From retailers to restaurateurs the story’s the same, “We’re short-staffed and can’t seem to hire people.” The U.S. Chamber of Commerce reported last week that there are 11.4 million job openings in the country, and only 6 million unemployed workers. But “unemployed” means people actively seeking employment. They make up about 10 percent of those able to work but not employed.
