Saw am article where crusty stoneman says M&A will be strong this year but he's concerned about labor shortage...

1) YOU HAD A STRONG LABOR FORCE - YOU KEEP LAYING THEM OFF!!

2) Nobody in their right mind would work for your hack shop anyhow!

LOL.....I used to laugh when people would say how bad Hooley was; like he turned it into a
sh**ho-e. In actuality, it was always a terrible, unorganized, stressful place to work.

Talent is walking out, no real talent is walking in. Job postings have few to no applicants… sure hard to grow a business with cr-p products and no people.

Nothing new. In 1980 I interviewed with DST. With a cute recruiter named Colleen. I asked her what DST meant. She laughed and said "dont stay there". She quit shortly after that herself! DST has been a sweatshop since day one. Don't act surprised like all of a sudden its changed. Maybe you don't know what DST was like in 1980. Maybe you think the company has recently gotten worse. No, its always been the way it is now.

There’s definitely a labor shortage of people willing to work for wages well below market rates.

The only reason Kansas City has a labor shortage is because DST and STONE caused the shortage by tossing so many smart, professional and knowledgeable employees out the door as if they were garbage. STONE is nothing but a full of $hit A$$ho-e.

It's comedy really, he's just posturing for investors and the next earnings call, "labor shortage" will be a topic in every earnings call for every corporation this year. And analysts buy that cr-p.

Here's a tip for the CEO, get rid of your garbage "stock options" and offer real $0 strike price RSUs like the big boys, who you're competing for talent with. I would've stayed for that.
