Talent Shortage

(June 26, 2006)  You can't find waiters and waitresses in Northern California. In mid-summer the restaurant doors have help wanted signs on them. All the college kids already have jobs.

As a result, unheard of changes are taking place in the Restaurant workplace. Today, as we munched our Japanese lunch, we watched the chef's seven year old push the sushi boats around the sushi pond.

You can't find babysitters in Northern California. The going rate routinely tops $15/hour for a Friday evening. The rise in gas prices is making it so that the cost of going out is becoming unaffordable.

So, we're eating lunch in empty restaurants watching the chef's little boy play with the empty food service equipment.

Meanwhile, we're closing the border to the very people who could help solve the problem. The talent shortage is real and getting realer. It's starting to look like a downward spiral.

If you can't go out because you can't find or afford a sitter, the leisure and entertainment sectors are at risk. That's probably a good thing because they can't acquire workers either.

On the other hand, we're making our houses our theaters with wall sized screens and booming sound systems. It's become a tradition. Have a problem and hide from it in your insulated house.

America routinely suffers from this xenophobia. In broad historical cycles, the culture attempts to blame outsiders and the rest of the world. We get over it, but it takes some time.

The problem is that other countries are competing with us for talent. India is wooing our best and brightest. Mexican immigrants are welcome elsewhere.

We're at a critical juncture and we're losing ground. Without some attention, the current talent shortage runs the risk of causing the next recession.

We keep updating the blogroll. There are now 146 Recruiting related blogs.
