Labor Shortage Is Structural
Last updated 6/28/2021 at 8:52pm
I think I saw that the current unemployment rate in Transylvania County is 3.6%, as reported by this publication. Our labor shortages are the result of an aging population. There are more well-heeled retired people in the county than there are workers to service those needs. That will not go away with the disappearance of the enhanced unemployment benefit. We have a structural problem.
