NEW: Many businesses are saying they can't get enough workers to fill empty roles right now. I wanted to learn more about the businesses that are finding luck with recruiting workers to see what's been successful. Here's what I found: (1/6)
My search started with an ice cream parlor in Pittsburgh's Strip District that got *a ton* of local media coverage last month when it announced it'd start offering wages at $15 an hour. The result? (2/6)
Next, I learned about a new sports bar in Cranberry that's offering a guaranteed $20/hour for servers/bar staff if they don't average that rate by the end of the week with their tips, something its owner decided to do so he'd have enough staff for the bar's grand opening. (3/6)
Now, the parlor and sports bar have staff to open with more hours, but what about businesses that aren't in food service? Look at Kennywood Park, which revamped its hiring efforts late last month and with significant increases to its wages. Noticing a trend yet? (4/6)
84 Lumber went about its recruiting efforts by hosting a hiring event at a local hotel. It wanted potential applicants to know that it's a company that loves promoting from within and one that offers plenty of opportunities. But it also explicitly made note of its wages. (5/6).
So what did I find? Employers that state their wages are having success at filling empty roles, so long as the wages are ones that are at least nearly double the federal minimum of $7.25/hour. But that's not all! Check out the full story at the top of this thread for more. (6/6)
