Montana's Looming Labor Shortage - It's expected to get worse before it gets better - Career Opportunities Available Now

September 13, 2018View for printing

Earlier this month, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock's administration celebrated the state's economy during its annual Labor Day Report. Jobs are aplenty. The unemployment rate is low. Wages are rising.

On the other end of this equation, however, is a worker shortage that is hampering employers' ability to hire people. Some area restaurants have had to cut back their hours of operation. Contractors are booked through 2019. I've heard stories of multiple employees simply not showing up for work because they know they can get a job elsewhere.
