QPS Cos., a Brookfield staffing company, said today that its survey of 245 employers in Wisconsin and northern Wisconsin found that 55% say it’s difficult or extremely difficult to fill job openings. According to QPS, top issues identified by respondents included lack of qualified employees(48%), lack of skilled employees (32%)
Wah, wah, wah. In other words the employers are unwilling to pay a livable wage. Why is it that the supply and demand of the free market is gospel except for when labor is concerned. You can’t on the one hand pay bottom of the barrel wages and then complain they are not skilled or qualified.
