Housing prices cut into temp worker supply (Record-Eagle)

June 18, 2018

Housing prices are making it more difficult to recruit in some areas. The Traverse City (Mich.) Record-Eagle newspaper reported on the problem in Traverse City, where employers are scrambling to locate temporary and other employees. “Our members are seeing labor shortages across the board,” Bill O’Brien, staff writer and researcher for TraverseConnect, told the Record-Eagle. “Whether it’s in construction or tech. We’re just seeing a lot of labor shortages, and that also cuts into the temp labor market. When workers are at such a premium, it creates a downward impact on the temp worker force.” And a staffing executive told the newspaper it was the high cost of housing cutting into supply.
