There are probably lots of reasons why people are NOT rushing to take jobs...
* Covid fears
* Covid-related childcare issues
* They have started their own businesses
* They are doing freelance or contract work instead
* They've figured out how to live on less money or one income instead of two.
But maybe there's another reason people are not rushing to take jobs...and it's what I call "The Airbnb Effect."
For instance, the Wall Street Journal is reporting that thanks to a company called Swimply, which is like "Airbnb for backyard swimming pools"...
...people like Jim Battan in Portland are making as much as $100,000 a year renting out their backyard swimming pools by the hour.
