Shocking Consequences to Laziness

8/9/23 CNBC reports on TSMC's problems getting workers skilled enough in Arizona to construct their new chip fab.  The union says TSMC is just using that as an excuse to fly Taiwanese workers in to do the work.  TSMC says flying them over is actually more expensive.  Intel, which has an Arizona fab, says skilled workers are in short supply but also that TSMC does not have enough experience as a global business to hire locally.

Whatever the problem is that TSMC is having, I fear that the Great Resignation (much of which is laziness and too many wealthy and spoiled young people) and failure to teach young people the importance of work is driving this.  Civilizations have certain basic values they must maintain to continue and I think we are failing.
