Labor Shortage Information and Resources

Our country is experiencing a massive labor shortage. The talent shortage is not new — but it's getting worse and will have far-reaching consequences on the economy. In the foodservice distribution alone, there is an estimated 17,500+ warehouse positions and 15,000+ driver positions currently open. In a recent survey of our national trade associations members, 100% of respondents indicated it was difficult or extremely difficult to find both warehouse and driver positions. This is despite pay well above national averages.
