A lot of companies are complaining that there is a skill gap, that good workers are hard to find, and that the education system is failing us and so on.
This guys take is that companies blame everything for the problem, except their possible role in it.
So If all companies are paying market rates, and still facing a skill gap, then clearly they’re not paying enough. Companies are being short sighted by wanting to pay less, and wanting more skills.
Thats not how the market economy works.
