  • I have been in the staffing industry here in Indiana for the past 8 years or so and changes are coming.

    I am starting to see a lot of warehouses and manufacturing facilities starting to struggle getting people in the door. Especially in the past year or so. There are a lot of new businesses moving here to Indiana because it is centrally located and labor/land prices are reasonable. That is creating a larger demand for qualified people that are willing to work.

    I have seen more places raise pay in the last year than I have seen since I have started in this industry and I think that it is only going to get better from here on out.

    With that being said, I would have to agree that people need to better themselves. Most of these lower paying jobs should just be stepping stones in your career. You are never going to be successful in this world if you aren't willing to put in the time and effort to better yourself.
