Robert Seaberry, plant manager at Great Southern Industries, a packaging company in Jackson, Miss., says it has been impossible to fill all the openings at the plant, Friday, May 28, 2021. The lack of workers has forced some supervisors to assume additional duties. Charita McCarrol, human resources manager at the company, says that she has seen some people abusing the $300-a-week federal supplement for people who lost their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as other programs that offered extended support for the unemployed. She also cited that for some people, a steady paycheck and benefits like health care, are not enough of an incentive to pass up the soon to expire benefits. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)
