Here's an interesting indication of the tight labor market employers are facing

Yesterday the U.S. Department of Labor announced the creation of 678,000 jobs in February. Accordingly, unemployment nationally dropped to 3.9-percent.

While February California unemployment rates remain above 6-percent, like other places, the state's job market has been affected by the so-called Great Resignation. Many jobs remain open.

In what can be called a novel approach to filling the gap, one employer has posted culinary positions offering paid time off and steady employment in an industry notorious for a high turnover and poor benefits. That employer is the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department.

The department posted the video posted below in an appeal to fill culinary positions at its two jails. Never let it be said the sheriff's department hasn't tried alternate venues to recruit employees.
