Some how I got a good "core" of solid employees 3 over 10 years, 3 over 5 years. But really need 9. The last 3 positions are almost impossible to fill. Pay starts at $12.00, up to about $15.00-$16.00 hr. with paid health care, vacations, holidays, 401k, uniforms, donuts on birthdays, and more. During the recession we advertised, facebook, craigslist, and more. When we did get some interest, so often they couldn't start until there unemployment ran out. As soon as the benefits were extended interest in working faded. With unemployment, foodstamps, State and Federal help available there wasn't that big of difference in life stile. It may take some time to get over the "Good old days" of freedom from work. But "No pain No gain", we may get to the point where it Hurts to Not have a job. Then we may see a whole new crop of people eager to learn. Where we can work with them, teach them skills, modify bad behavior, reward good behavior and feel good about having a good impact on some ones life. Hope fully this happens before my 6 solid employees retire!
