“If we think our labor shortages are only because of COVID, we’re missing a really important part of what’s happening in our community,” Kier said. “It means we are in for a strain. We’ve really got to be focused in as a community on what we can do to attract and retain good talent here, so that we have the workers that our business can use to continue to grow and succeed in Missoula.”

The Missoula Economic Partnership reports Missoula’s total workforce is 61,531.  34,492 of those are categorized as retiring soon, meaning they’re 55 years or older.

That’s 56% of Missoula’s workforce.
