Earheart says other restaurant owners are facing the same staff shortage.
“Lots and lots of restaurants. I mean, I have friends who can’t even open their restaurants for lunch because there just isn’t a labor pool for people to work in that shift, ”Earhart said.
Fast food restaurants like Wendy’s were spotted putting up signs with a signing bonus for new hires.
Since federal unemployment benefits are offered in addition to the state benefit, several business owners have questioned whether this income is a factor in the shortage of job seekers.
