Why it is so hard to hire warehouse workers

People in the prime age for case picking and truck loading are more expensive and harder to find.  Consider this:
  • Wages for 20-24 years old – are increasing double the speed of other workers
  • Labor participation of 16-24 years old – down 10% (more people going to college?)
  • Nearly 12% of 25-64 years old in Kentucky are on disability 
Fuel costs continue to decline – and you can thank Russia!  Russia has declined to reduce output as demand continues to decline.
