You can build new resturants all day long.. if you dont have anyone to work in them they cant open… you have once in particular right off hwy 69 a Luby’s thats only open now from tuesday to sunday, and that is adding tuesday in the last month.
Also in Nederland, Reds Barbcue is now closed after 3pm, they are always packed but if you ask why they are closed they will tell you they just cant find people.. these are just 2 places. Even Groves has shut down there Sonic Drive in due to not having enough workers. I even had a discussion just yesterday with a call center supervisor stating they had to shut down a very large call center that took calls for Tmobile Direct TV and Helio, the Helio contract was lost due to inabiltiy to find works… He was also thinking about leaving Client logic AKA SITEL, for a job doing expansion work.
Why would you want to work in the resturant service industry when you could make 15 to 25 dollars a hour working for the ongoing expainsions in the Port Arthur… Golden Triangle area, Valero, Motiva, Huntsman, Total, and Exxon Mobil,,, are all doing upgrades or expansions….
