A report from the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) is due out later today. Meanwhile, the latest monthly survey reports that U.S. small businesses remained on the hunt for new employees in July and still couldn’t find enough of them.
According to William Dunkelberg, NFIB chief economist:
As long as consumers spend, firms will find it profitable to hire. But hiring continues to be hindered by the lack of qualified workers.
James Freeman summarizes in the “Best of the Web” (WSJ):
At least for now, the great American worker shortage continues at small companies.
Would this perhaps be a good time for a bipartisan agreement enabling more legal migration?
