    I’ve dropped my card on your site many times before but never realized you were a fellow Calgarian! Guess I should have read your “about” section lol, didn’t even notice it up there.

    I can’t believe that Tim’s is having such a hard time getting employees. I mean wow, they are paying what is now? $12 an hour plus benefits to serve coffee! Just 5 or 6 years ago I didn’t even make that much managing a retail store and now I could make it doing something as simple as serving coffee…..hmm and to think I overheard someone not long ago saying “I mean, if I can’t find a job I can’t find a job man, it’s not my fault”…ummm yeah, right, because we all know how hard it is to pour coffee or say “Welcome to McDonald’s can I take your order please”…

    My husband’s company is bringing in a couple of guys from Mexico to work, of course that has been a year in the making and as of yet they are still not here.

    I work in the staffing industry and it is unbelievable how hard it is to find people. A lot of the customers I service are bringing in Foreigners to staff their needs just because they can’t find anyone here.

    Thanks for stopping by. Check out my other site, which is neglected at the moment. http://calgaryblog.info But their is a directory there.

    We have the same problem in Louisiana with staffing shortages. Mainly because of the hurricanes. People can make 10 times as much in construction, so the folks with little skills do that and leave doughnut shops w/o employees.

    That is crazy to hear. I thought the only problem was when they ran out of eggs.
