Has it been a struggle to hire and fill your staffing gaps? The answer is simple to many staffing experts. According to Business Insider, experts recommend raising wages, saying it could provide a more permanent solution to the labor shortage.
In fact, Marc Wulfraat, the president of logistics consulting firm MWPVL stated, “It’s going to be a shock to companies that are paying low wages — they’re going to be the ones that are hit the worst because all that low-wage labor is going to find a home elsewhere — where there’s more money to be made.” Would you consider your wages fair, low, or high?
