"Great news! 400 new jobs announced" - attitude towards more jobs

    Why are we still acting like we're in 2012 where a new jobs announcement would be welcome news?

    We have a massive labour shortage across all sectors at the moment. Anyone who wants a job can get a job.

    Wages are going up, particularly in the professional sector. And they are going up big. This is not a good thing. This will increase property prices and those on the lower paid jobs will be hit.

    I just fail to see the positives in new jobs announcements anymore. We don't have enough houses, public transport capacity.
