Jennings, L.A. – June 17, 2021 – A positive sign that there’s a light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, COVID-19 restrictions have been lifting around the state of Louisiana as more citizens become fully vaccinated. People across the country are excited to get back to some normalcy, however, staffing troubles place an obstacle in the way.
The words “hiring crisis” have been a hot topic in the news over the last several months as businesses around the country, specifically restaurants, have faced trouble with staffing as communities reopen.
