KIMBERLEY STRASSEL (GUEST): Well again, any American looking around at the moment understands very clearly what the problem is and why we don't have enough people to unload containers from ships.

And it's because on the one hand, we've been paying people to stay home and those benefits are still going, whether it be the child tax credit or whatever it is. And on the other hand, we have all of these government mandates and restrictions that are actually discouraging people from working, whether it's vaccine mandates or others.

You can argue about that from a public policy and health perspective, but the reality of it is they're out there in the workforce. And until we change government incentives and disincentives to work, this is not going to get better.

NEIL CAVUTO (HOST): Very well put.
