By Ben Fordham
Something doesn’t make sense.
We’re hearing that major staff shortages are still affecting most of our industries.
That includes health, construction, childcare and hospitality.
It seems strange when the unemployment rate is 3.9%- the lowest in almost 50 years.
We are keen to hear from people- what’s happening in your profession?

Here’s what others had to say:
Shortages are due to workers not allowed back in their jobs, unless they are vaccinated. Plain and Simple.
End the mandates!! it is awful how many have lost jobs due to vaccine mandates.
Hard to understand, but certainly a percentage of the available workforce is still not allowed to work due to private and public sector mandates. Mandates need to go and it will definitely ease the situation.
So many qualified people unable to work due to vaccine mandates!!
Nurse of 35 years, two jabs, not having the third. Now running my own business in a complimentary therapy. Given up my career, given up my registration. My previous colleagues report burnout, carer fatigue, a hardening of the humanity needed in the caring profession. TBH, happy to be out of such a toxic environment.
I was terminated due to mandates. I am a teacher with 18 years experience now unemployed. I also keep a close eye on Education and it has never been so bad in my whole career with staff shortages.
Why won’t MSM journalists start reporting the truth??? I’m a healthcare worker of 24 years & haven’t been allowed to step foot on hospital campus since Nov 2021!
END THE MANDATES!!!
They know about the mandates but nothing changes. So what’s the agenda? A deliberate dissolving of the economy as we know it? Something is coming….
Waters There are thousands of teachers in Qld stood down due to mandates. I know 3 personally.
Being short of healthcare staff is kind of like drunk driving. Some of the time people may get away fine, but all of the time people’s lives are at risk.
End the mandates and let people back into those industries.
They don’t count the unvaxxed that aren’t allowed to work in the official unemployed figures.
3 of us had to leave our volunteer positions that we had had for over 10yrs in Community Transport because of the booster mandate on 12th April and since then they still have no one to take our place
Im in retail and its shocking atm. They cant get enough staff to work.
The unemployment figures dont add up. So many people i know are out of work because of vaxx mandates. Im working on an exemption atm otherwise id be out of a job aswell. The % of people vaxxed isn’t true either imo.
Renee Jacqueline Doyle
Dept of Education has supposedly dropped mandates yet are still requiring employees to be double vaxxed – not sure how this works ?
I work at a major hospital and I’ve never seen staff shortages the way it has been, Particularly over the past 9 months and no Covid is not to blame most of the time.
It’s pretty obvious they are lying to us about the affect mandates have had.
I have so many friends that are teachers, nurses, aged care workers, hair dressers, shire workers….all out of work because they refuse to let the Government fill them full of unproven/ineffective solution
