    I always tell people, "it's not a driver shortage, it's a pay shortage".

    Exactly

    "
    How a Shortage Works
    In a normally functioning market, there is an equilibrium between the quantity demanded and quantity supplied at a price point dictated by market forces. A shortage is a situation in which demand for a product or service exceeds the available supply. When this occurs, the market is said to be in a state of disequilibrium. Usually, this condition is temporary as the product will be replenished and the market regains equilibrium. Shortage should not be confused with "scarcity," in that shortages are usually temporary and can be corrected, while scarcities tend to be systemic and cannot be replenished."

    The "DRIVER SHORTAGE" neither meets the definition of scarcity, nor shortage because its simply not meeting true markey demand in pay.
