As in many places right now, the unprecedented "perfect storm" of a worker shortage hangs over Transylvania County.
"I've never seen anything like this before," said Clark Lovelace, executive director of the Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce and the Tourism Development Authority. "I have never seen employers across industries at a spectrum of wage levels unable to fill positions like they are right now. I have never seen so many businesses limiting their hours because they are unable to find enough workers, while those that they have are being worked as much as possible."
