In a Woodworking Network survey, 80 percent of professional woodworkers polled say the company they run or work for is having trouble finding laborers.
We asked 150 woodworkers what they believed was causing the labor shortage across the woodworking industry. Here's what they had to say.
Many commented that they are using ads on Craigslist, Facebook, Indeed.com, ZipRecruiter, and other social media and job sites. Others are avoiding hiring altogether by giving current employees more responsibility or by turning down work. One commenter wrote he is "praying for immigration to increase."
