Holiday Season is here

With Christmas being around the corner, you may want to do your Christmas shopping early. The year 2021 has been stressful for everybody, especially in the workforce. Labor shortages have been a big problem this year. A lot of people have been leaving due to Covid-19 and low pay. This is causing stores like Target and Walmart to be short-staffed. That is putting a lot of stress on the employees and some leave because of that stress. It makes the labor shortage even worse. Who is going to keep the shelves in stock?

Many people have been resorting to online shopping. Labor shortages have also been a big problem in the delivery industry. That’s also another reason why the shelves are empty. Once a delivery gets to the store, there is nobody to stock that delivery. Stores have no choice but to keep the shelves empty.
