OCTOBER JOBS REPORT SOLID, MAKING FED'S INFLATION FIGHT HARDER

ANDY PUZDER: A lot of these businesses, particularly the restaurant businesses, depend on young people in there. They're used to what happened for the two years of the pandemic when you really didn't have to go to work. And if you did go to work, if the employer was begging you to come, and you could get the conditions you wanted. I think that's going to rapidly decline, particularly after the election and through the early part of 2023, when these jobs become something that people really need and want.

During the Obama administration, when I was running CKE Restaurants, we'd advertise for a job, and you'd have 100 applicants. I mean, it was a totally different universe because people needed the jobs back then. So I think we're going to see the shift. It's just not as quick as many of us hoped it would be.
