Virtually all businesses are struggling to get staff. Today, we stopped at

a BBQ chain,late lunch, south Charlotte. Looked like about 8 staff working, we struck up a convo with lady who was the mgr (working the front register). She said they were having to make the call each day on whether they could open for lunch and / or dinner, based on if they can get staff hired and on the job. Lots of "ghosting" going on .ghosting on interviews, ghosting once offered and job accepted, ghosting working out an entire shift.
This Mgr was a UNC grad, and in trying to stay open, was working the front register and the drive thru orders. Her guy in the cook pit came out to bus a table and she intro'd him and he was also a college grad (UNCC) who was the regional Finance mgr ( left after the shift to go do his regular financial workup of the numbers for the franchise. Point is, hiring is tough everywhere.And folks like this are grabbing a rifle and jumping up on the firing line to keep the business open. Everywhere.
Including at football stadiums. Patrons should lighten up and look around, be aware of what is going on. A bit of empathy may be in order. Thank goodness it was only water / concessions on the line, at the stadium, not health or other critical services (or is it?)
