As well, a 2% death rate does not take into account the long haulers who continue to experience debilitating effects long after they test negative.Easier said than done when hospitals are overwhelmed and no one knows what's going on! Also 2% of the world's population is 140,000,000 people. Is that an acceptable price to make sure rich people in the US and Europe can ride a new bike they probably don't actually need?
-There's also a pretty big shortage of Pallets to put said boxes on for shipping.Because I work for a manufacture, I see the supply chain issues, or at least what corp shares with us in sales. Here's the thing I think most people forget, every single manufacture has had some sort of delay or set back. We've had issues getting cardboard boxes. You guys know of any company that doesn't ship stuff in cardboard? Shipping is way behind. I'll track orders for customers and they'll sit on a dock for 3 days before moving. The last report I saw was there were 4 truck loads to every driver in the US, on average. Texas was at 8:1, and California 10:1.
Purely made up, but this is the issue for everything right now...
Its a compounding issue, when the card board company can't get boxes to Shimano, so Shimano can't get parts to Yeti, Yeti can't call it a Tribe (I had to stick that in there), and they can't get boxes or fast reliable shipping to send the dealer your bike.
You're prolly right...'supply chain' is just an excuse for companies to charge double and take extended weekends and vacations.Wife got me started thinking. She is pissed about "the supply chain" issue.
I see no articles or news reports about the supply chain issue. This issue is supposedly a big deal everywhere.
Many people waiting on parts, cars, trucks, etc. because of the "supply chain".
-can't blame USPS for vehicle deliveries.
The got to delay reason for car delay a lack of chips. Not buying that excuse as my daughter waiting on a car (hers was stolen) finds out her car is ready to be delivered but is sitting on a car carrier-for 2 tweeks and counting. The dealership itself is waiting on delivery of many cars and trucks.
-hope the salesman have a huge savings account.
Oh and the pat excuse for parts is , "ships are waiting in the harbor" to be unloaded. -been hearing that for quite awhile.
Ideas to help me understand?
I'm in NH, we have just about the lowest rate of unemployment in the country, and the governor cut off the extra unemployment several months ago, and literally every business has vacancies and restaurants are having to close on random days because they simply don't have enough staff.Funemployment ended over labor day weekend and shortly before that so did the moratorium on rent payment and evictions in most parts of the country with others expiring later this month. Hang tight...people will be filling jobs soon.
I still maintain that people are exploiting covid as an excuse.
If you’re tired of hearing ‘because of COVID’ as an excuse for poor customer service, you’re not aloneA recent study in the U.K. found that customers are done with businesses using COVID-19 as a blanket excuse.www.deseret.com
