Finding good help is a national problem and is expected to get worse. After the worst recession since the great depression ( where have we heard that before? )old timers retired and there wasn't enough newbies hired. It has left a huge hole in the skilled labor market. They predict that if you can find good help it will come at a premium. And that is a prime example of free markets dictating wages, as it should be. :thumbsup:

Many times the biggest problem in finding & keeping good employees always boils down to the wages paid to them.

Quality guys are likely going to cost more than many are willing to pay.

High end guys are often being offered bennies or incentives.

Tool allowance, gas allowance, paid vacations/holidays, paid sick leave, bonuses, etc....:thumbsup:
