“Volpe & Fine settimana degli amici” co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy spoke with diners at Wayside Family Restaurant in Concord, Carolina del Nord, Friday morning about the issues they find most concerning.
David, who owns a small business in the packaging industry, told Campos-Duffy that he’s never seen the economy like this in his 40-year career.
“It’s very hard to get not only labor, but raw materials, a questo punto,” Egli ha detto.
He explained that he can’t get delivery dates or even issue new purchase orders for the materials his business needs.
The Wayside Family Restaurant owner, Rex, said he’s never experienced difficulty like this due to the economy in his 47-year restaurant career.
“It’s very hard to meet payroll. It’s hard to meet food costs,” Egli ha detto.
His wife and son, Molly and Chris, said they believe the labor shortage is the greatest factor contributing to the struggle in operating their family business.
“No one is applying,” Molly told Campos-Duffy.
Chris said it’s an issue that needs to be addressed at the federal level.
“It’s something that our current administration is not handling at all,” Egli ha detto.
