Breitbart: Houston Rockets Owner Tilman Fertitta, who also owns the Landry’s restaurant group, warned that America’s “great capitalism” will come to an end if the supply chain issues persist and if the Democrats push their unrealized capital gains tax.
According to Fertitta, the supply chain crisis, along with the inflation and labor shortages created by the pandemic, has wreaked havoc on the American economy to the point that “people just don’t want to work anymore.”
“We have 4,000 openings right now,” he told “Fox News Primetime.” “Between the Golden Nugget, all the restaurants and entertainment venues; people just don’t want to work anymore. I don’t know what happened to that part of capitalism.
“What’s crazy, though, is our high-end businesses are the most successful,” he added. “So people are getting money from somewhere. It’s just a tough time between the labor shortage and the supply shortage. So don’t get mad at your restaurant when it’s extremely expensive, and the waiter has five tables instead of three.” MORE
