Reality Check: Long-Term Labor Shortages / Higher Prices / Lack of Supply - Why are we in trouble???
Show Notes

Special Guest: Lauren Winans

We can't find people.  The labor market is dry.  Job vacancies go unfilled.  Those in the workforce are being thrown higher and higher wages just to get employees to work for them. Since labor costs are higher, companies are passing that cost to the consumer.  This is why everything is so expensive!   What about that car you can't get because there are none available?  It starts with manufacturing.  Lack of raw materials. Global shortage of chips. If plants don't have labor, then production goes down. When production goes down, there is less product.  Ultimately, making it HARDER to get the product and driving prices UP! 

 This season on the offer, we will be talking about how to solve this problem!  How can we address the issue of labor shortage? Starting with today!  We will start by talking about WHY we have a LABOR SHORTAGE dispelling many of the NOT FACTUAL reasons for the cause.  We will also dig into the fact that this is going to be a LONG TERM shortage.  

Lauren Winans, CEO of Next Level Benefits, will join me today to discuss how employers respond to the new reality.
