Businesses struggling to hire staff

COLUMBIA, SC (WACH) — Unemployment is high in South Carolina, but businesses are still struggling to find workers. Restaurants, schools, construction companies, and more are all in a bind. “There is a lot of business out there to be had and a lot of business is coming to us but we need more manpower/womanpower,” said Jeffery Katz, owner of Willie Jewell’s Old School Bar-B-Q. At Willie Jewell’s Old School Bar-B-Q in Lexington, they’ve had to close for several days because of staffing shortages.
