"The Trump Biden battle is heating up. We could talk about that. We could follow on yesterday's conversation about workforce. I have a good workforce story for you. Does share a little frustration. I don't know if this never happened to you. I could talk about that we can talk about. Well, let me tell you about our guests. There's some great guests. Coming up Branko she'll be here. He's the triple amputee veteran raising money for the border wall. They have taken the money you've donated and built wall. And some of the toughest areas along the board of the New Mexico Texas border with Mexico. There is now wall along a mountainside that's been done some international water organization yesterday, or the day before lacked their gate, open. They didn't want the wall actually down. They've solved that crisis now but it's just one battle after another for these guys. We'll get an update on that aren't calf USA CEO Bill Bullard OB here. The folks that aren't calf came on early before the tariff or removed from Mexico. And the. Folks remark have said, you know, we're glad there's tariffs going on. Everybody else was saying the sky was falling over terrace. This guy said, we're glad thank you. So I wanna find out a little bit why they were bucking the trend there. And we've had number folks suggest we have our on the program and talk about their view for cattle producers, then Chris Berg will be here. The host of the program called point of view k x four in the east at six thirty every night. And is also on west Dakota FOX at nine thirty each weeknight. Okay. All right. So tell me what's on your mind. We can talk about any of those things or anything you'd like to talk about today on the program, we call what's on your mind. I first story on the workforce, then yesterday we were at the workforce Development Council. Tons of talent in one room. This is governor Doug Burgum, workforce Development Council is chaired by Michelle Comber, who is the department of commerce Commissioner, but an all star lineup of business. Becca damietta. I may just really good people smart people. A business owners all of really, really good. And they're kind of getting down to now. Okay, where are we going to focus? What are we going to do? Let's get some subcommittees going. They had a number percentage yesterday. We had those up on Facebook really interesting ideas really neat things. They're having the F five conversation f five is doing incredible work, and taking people who are incarcerated or come right on Jalen, finding them a job. That's darned tough to do darn tough to do. But they do it with, with, with the heart. With a faith based entity, and, and some of the best employees are former incarcerated individuals mean things like that really need Patrick manure and the group that the, the golden path solutions. We've told you about developing a profile of students. Students in highschool matching the profiles with jobs in the in the workforce, pretty incredible. Here's my story from today. So after all that conversation all that innovation all those good ideas yesterday, my head just ready to explode with all these wonderful ideas to take on the workforce challenges. We have here in the heartland. And I go to McDonald's restaurant. Along an interstate. This is this is a McDonald's restaurant that happens to be a thirty second avenue south I twenty nine in Fargo. But a McDonald's restaurant at truckstop think of the traffic Love's truck. Stop gets in a day, right? A lot. Donalds in the Love's truck. Stop I go to the drive through. But seven this morning. And there's an orange cone blocking my entrance into the. Drive through. For you. For you. So I go inside and nurse between a thousand and fifteen hundred people in line in this very small McDonalds at that point, why recognize that if I actually stay in that line. I might get my sausage egg cheese biscuit at about six tonight. If I don't what I'm saying? So I say breakfast, all day these days. Yeah, I just have to wait. Yeah. The clock would flip and I'd still be in line. So, you know, and I've had this happen before, and others have as well. And I've heard from university. Yeah. Darn it can't believe me, they can't get people can't get people. It's a McDonald's in a truck. Stop on interstate if you own or manage that and you can't get people, then it's time to go to work for burger time or something, you know, you you've you've overreached, you can't handle McDonald's. The iconic hamburger maker. I think that's poor management. I don't think that's the type workforce. I mean, it is a tight workforce, but so anyway, any any ideas for these folks. I just find myself very frustrated. And I said, I just where's your innovation? Where's your ideas? I remember Gupta, North Dakota guys that started command central command center, command center was labor force group. They helped the might not and WalMart. My not and Williston. Walmart's rather. I remember this if I if I remember this correctly staff up during the height of the oil, boom. When if you could fog a mirror, you made one hundred grand a year. Right. So it was very tough to find people. And if if they if they found people they worked for high paying jobs, right? So they found a way to do a grid and basically break up their workday into four hour increments, incremented, fine. Retired people find you know, moms that drop the kids off at school. It would mind make a couple extra box, and they just found the nontraditional workforce, and they filled the fill the time when it worked for them. You know what that was an idea that was innovation that was thinking through a problem sort of, like us in the immigration situation here right now in the United States. Let's see, we don't have a system that verifies that they are citizens, so they so they can work anywhere. Once they bust through, we've now created an incentive to bust through. We've now given them a carrot dangling. We have this goofy system that says, if you come with a child, we're going to hold you for a couple of days, then we're gonna let you go because you have a child, and we have no way to hold you. Well, now the child's passport you're gonna be grabbing kids off the street, come up with a different plan, secure the border. Get up. Come on. We're better than this, folks. We are my opinion there on a couple of key issues years. Welcome. Eight hundred two two eight zero five zero text me, seven zero one three six seven two zero five four techs Todd seven zero one two two six eight five three. Adam. Is calling Adam, what's on your mind? Adam. Is this the point where I'm supposed to be hearing guys Jack Jack Jack head? What's on your mind? Jack. Okay, I disagree with the management issue. And this is because I don't Facebook much because I, I look for a few things here, and there it's amazing how many people should on Facebook and say, hey, I'm looking for a job, but it's got a pay X number of dollars. So if anything recruiter baseball. The problem you have society, today to so stinking lazy. To go to Facebook and ask the stupid question. Gee, I need a job where can I find a job? And that just irritates out of it then. I also remember this. Are you should on a board of directors for a nursing home in Fargo? Okay. We had a care coordinator. Now the employee didn't want money. They want better benefits. They wanted a care coordinator. I should. Okay. So the board of directors voted in a care coordinator. You don't care coordinator does make sure they get out of bed. Make sure they have a good breakfast in their belly can get to work on time. Can't help them. Please their kids in some type of care, or they'll go pick them up because they just don't want to get out of bed. It was amazing. Amazing. So it's not the fact that we need people to come into this country and work. It's the fact that population of today doesn't want to work the. Facebook, you'll find all the employees you want for McDonald's. But they have already stipulations and it's ridiculous. Just have no work ethic or the care coordinator was for the employees. This year saying the care coordinator was for the employees to coddle the employee's basically. Yeah. Yeah. We didn't want more money than didn't want better benefits. They wanted to Cutler. Can you come get me out of bed? And by the way, I need some eat on my way to work or my car has a flat tire. I can't come to work today or the best one place. I have no place for my kids, without you bring the daycare, expensive the real today. Go to work the real problem. If you hire a care coordinator, that doesn't care. I do worry when I hear stories like that. And I don't doubt any of it? But I still say if you own a McDonald's on interstate in Fargo you manage a McDonald's and interstate you there find a way to keep your drive through open or shut it down a handed off to somebody else. Let Hardee's try you know. I mean I just think that's ridiculous. I hear what you're saying. Jackie.

My mom and grandmother used to say happy as a clam all the time. That was there. Been around. But yeah. And I mean how do you know anybody bothered to ask the clam or we just making it assumption based on? I don't know. But already a listener as texted this to me. Saying. The term comes from me longer version the phrase as happy as a clam at high water. Oh, because it's not drowning at that point. Yes. Yeah. High high tide is when clams are free from the attentions of predators. Say something comes along and. Yeah, go with that. So that's we're happy is clamped on from. How do these things start? Like what does that go North Dakota? Wrote that like a blanket. Right. That or you know how long has it been around? Would you like to know? Yeah. Yeah. Okay. The earliest citation. He's from a frontier memoir called the harps head a legend of Kentucky. Eighteen thirty three. So there you go. Eighteen thirty three. Well, how do we know? It wasn't said before that. I mean that's like oh bible. The bible wasn't written as happened written written years later. Yeah. True. True. So could be. Yeah. Don't confuse me anymore. This baby up was this on your prep sheet today. Yes. Bottom of clam. I know if we did a program that was entirely devoted to. Things you remember from your parents? Oh my gosh. It would be two hours of non-stop radio. I guarantee gates. Yeah. Exactly opened that would exact that bit. They say not as I do. That's one. Yeah. Yeah. I've, I've got hundreds of the kids the kids attend to. It was a me on Abe Lincolns Facebook page daughter, actually. Who's a junior in college. Next year, she said her and her friend went out for I don't know, coffee or lunch or something one day, and she said something kind of funny, and she said, oh, my gosh. My dad says that. And so the entire lunch was exchanging things that their dad's had said that were kind of funny, and, and she said she was embarrassed to share most of mine. I don't know why that was, but they were way too corny. But she did she didn't come up with a few and she'd forgotten. If you remember when she called me, I forgot this one forgot that one we are waiting for Michelle Comber to join us. Michelle is the Ecorse Commissioner of the department of commerce in North Dakota. We're talking about the workforce Development Council bottom. The meet some of the folks on the council as well later today, we'll have Facebook live coverage of that as well. We're going to be a man Dan later today energy transfer partners. Is here to announce a donation it's going to be happening a little later on over the lunch hour. So we'll have coverage of that of the news later checking out as well. Chris, Chris Korea who is one of the top executives for energy transfer partners is in man. Dan, today, it will be making that announcement a little later on. So I know some folks in mandate are excited. What could it be what's going to happen? How does this impact our downtown? So another good neighbor move by the good folks that energy transfer partners. And we'll tell you about that today on the program as well. I didn't get the chance to play all of Donald Trump's commentary. But this is classic Trump. He is evidently watching CNBC some guy from the US chamber of commerce named brilliant is trash talking him. And he calls into kind of sort of set the record straight, and then CNBC a smart interviewers top because they, you know, they went right into all kinds of other topics. You know, now a one is the question of whether or not. We're going to get a deal with China in whether China will be off setting tariffs by messing around with their currency here is what the what the president, that's cut five by the way, in case, you know, the latest on China and the president will let. The currency. They have for years. It's put them at a tremendous competitive advantage, and we don't have that advantage because we have a fed that doesn't lower interest rates. We have fed that raises interest, rates the day before abundance Hugo's. So we have to pay more money you tell me about that thinking, okay? We should we should be entitled to have a fair playing field but even without a fair playing field because I fed is very, very destructive to us even without a fair playing field. We're winning because the tariffs are putting us at a tremendous competitive advantage. Our good. They want our money where the piggy Bank with the back about the firm say, do you think they should cut in June? They come around to your thinking, or, or has the stock market volatility or, or the, the economy. What do you think they've, they've listened to you or they arrived at the decision themselves baby to cut rates one? Do you think they should know? They haven't listened to me, and we have people that can more than just Jay Powell. We have people on the fed that really weren't, you know, they're not might people, but they certainly didn't listen to me because they made a big mistake. They raised interest rates for too fast. That's number one. Number two. They did quantitative tightening. They would take it in fifty billion dollars a month. Fifty biddy in a month. And they now ease that, but it's still twenty five billion much, which is ridiculous. China's doing just the opposite pumping money in, so.

I, I got arrested for drug paraphernalia and drugs vehicle that we're not mine, and you're guilty until proven innocent. Unfortunately, in this country, we know it's stated otherwise there is just no way to fight it. And so I the plead guilty to three charges and now here I am faced with trying to get a drug and alcohol evaluation. And so I'm down to west central. Whatever it's called over there in west Bismarck. And as soon as they find out that I really wasn't a drug user, and I really didn't have a problem. I didn't have to go through the treatment program. Then they stopped the deal all know you, you don't qualify for doing a drug valuation. Sounds like an ordeal. John.

But I appreciate you calling, we will be at atomic coffee downtown Fargo Senator club, char. Minnesota Senator running for president. They come to town. We wanna go. No matter the the affiliation. We'll have that on Facebook live, so you can watch that let me introduce our next guest, who is a busy lady. That's why we're pleased with us at the Fargo air museum on this day. It is Michelle Comber the Commissioner of the department of commerce in North Dakota. Hello, Michelle very nice to be here. Thanks for being here on a on a busy day on a fun day. And, you know, I am passionate about this great state. We have such a wonderful state. We have such wonderful people. We have so many cool things to do. And we have a challenge on her hands and the challenges, certainly meeting, workforce needs of the great companies that are here, and that, that want to locate here. How are we doing on this effort? Well, Scott, we have a lot of work to do. And we've done a lot of great work, and as you talk in just a few moments ago, there are a lot of people that care about this, and there are a lot of ways to plug into this. It's a city it's a regional at the state level issue. And I think that, you know, it's been said that a crisis is a good motivator. It's a good reason to get connected, and we do have a workforce crisis, and national work for crisis, the proper term here I think it is. I think it is for the first time in our nation's history of recordkeeping last summer, our nation had more jobs open than people available to do those jobs, and that's true North Dakota's. Well, and it's true in our neighboring states and it's true just about everywhere, unlike twenty fourteen twenty fifteen when North Dakota with seeing a tremendous amount of economic opportunity, and growth and other states were experiencing nine ten eleven twelve percent unemployment, and we were able to recruit people to come to North Dakota for great job opportunities. We're seeing in a very positive way prosperity in other places in the nation. But it does cause squeeze apente and we have a great opportunity in North Dakota. I believe, to, to get ahead. And one of the things that I. It really excited about, you know, just on the cusp of thing we have a crisis. One of the things that's very exciting for us here in North Dakota. I believe is that we have a culture in a habit of being able to work together when we need to, and I think we can, and I think we are. So it's a crisis here, obviously, in North Dakota. Sometimes when you have a crisis, your neighbors come in and say, hey, let's help. Right. We're going to, you know, if there's a, you know, a neighbor on the farm that has some health issues. Everybody comes in farm rescue comes in, in this case. They're fighting the same crisis. Right. Our neighbor. I mean, everybody is this is so that makes it that much more difficult to fix isn't it because everybody's in this place. Absolutely. Right. It's very true. You know, we have today, the second lowest unemployment rate in the nation. And nationally. We have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the history of our company, but look to the left look to the right, look immediately south of us in, in the states that, that neighbor, and they have their right neck and neck with us with those same statistics. And, you know, we see competition enough form of our neighboring states offering programs and incentives and opportunities specifically to target our citizens are students, the wealth of our state is what I what I call that our human capital to come and work in their state. And, and it's you know the time is really right and important and necessary for us to be not only playing defense but preferably switching that up and determine how we're in play offense there, so often, I think people think, well, you know, just got to go find that person you find that person then you put him with the jobs because plenty of jobs. But again, when it's a crisis everywhere and everybody's fighting this people can be choosy that the labor force can say twenty dollars an. Our twenty five an hour. I'll take twenty but guess what? I've got lots of hunting opportunities right now. I'll go twenty five and do more the city life or whatever. How much does the quality of our communities livelihood, the quality of life in our communities factor into attracting that talent for it's absolutely essential? And that's one of the things that we're focusing on, you know, you might not immediately connect community vibrancy and health, and, you know, to the workforce issue, but it's absolutely essential. In fact, studies show that today in particularly workforce's that are entering or excuse me, generations that are entering the workforce look for place first, and then they go on to look at the employment opportunity, and they look at culture, and they look at growth opportunities. And so there isn't any one thing that's going to solve this, and I think that can be both simultaneously frustrating. But it is another opportunity if we can get ahead in our willingness to collaborate and work together and understand what the drivers are. How can the department of commerce, help solve this crisis? Well, absolutely great question. You know, I came from the private sector, I have been working on team North Dakota for two and a half years. It's been a tremendous privilege and an honor and I've had to learn a lot. You know, I say that I, I said, yes to this upper -tunities because I love the state, and this opportunity has made me love it even more. But to that I also learned that you don't want to say, I'm, I'm, I'm from the government, and I'm here to help and also don't believe that the government is going to solve all of our problems. I think the role of the department of commerce through our workforce vision is to be a convener to be a connector to be responsive to listen to engage.
