Why the Ports are Backlogged

Bill H.

The reasons for the backlog at the ports.

Part is a massive buildup that started when the ports were closed to pandemic shutdowns. Once the ports are reopened, the clog does not clear up quickly. In fact it gets worse for some time before it gets better because the port is so crowded that nothing can move.

Shortage is there now because there is a worker shortage everywhere. Part is overpayment of unemployment benefits, but even as those are ending labor shortage remains.

Some is the fear mongering which makes people want to avoid work for fear of catching Covid and, of course, dying.

Some is people refusing to get a vaccine in order to work, and people who are working are quitting because of vaccine mandates.

Many are so deep in debt they don't want a job which has wages that can be attached.

The labor situation everywhere is gruesome and is going to remain so for a long time. The lockdown destroyed our economy in ways that cannot be repaired easily, if at all.
