There isn't an industry not impacted by the need to find good, qualified workers. The issues are almost always the same:

• Unable to find workers who can pass a drug test.
• Unable to find workers with basic skills of reading & math.
• Workers that want to show up to work.
• How to replace an aging workforce.
