business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Washington Post has a story about how, “as the nation faces a historically low level of unemployment, trucking companies are doing what economists have said firms need to do to attract and retain workers: They’re hiking pay significantly, offering bonuses and even recruiting people they previously wouldn’t have considered.

“But it’s not working. The industry reports a growing labor shortage — 63,000 open positions this year, a number expected to more than double in coming years — that could have wide-ranging impacts on the American economy.”

Good piece, about a subject that we’ve come back to from time to time here on MNB, and you can read it here.
