“America’s Labor Crisis” Featuring Mike Rowe and Dave Ramsey
Nashville – Inflation, fears of a recession, ongoing supply chain issues and a whole host of other economic obstacles have plagued small businesses for the past three years. One of the biggest pain points has been labor issues. Over 4 million people have left their jobs every month for six months in a row according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, raising the question: Is the “great resignation” a short-term trend or the new normal?
To address these and other issues with actionable answers and practical advice, Ramsey Solutions’ EntreLeadership team is hosting a FREE livestream for small-business leaders and entrepreneurs Thursday, May 4, at 7 p.m CST. “America’s Labor Crisis Live: The Real Reason People Are Giving Up on Work” will feature Dave Ramsey, the CEO of Ramsey Solutions, Mike Rowe, the TV host of “Dirty Jobs” and founder of mikeroweWORKS.org and five other thought leaders who will discuss the labor problems and map out solutions.
“We have a labor crisis in America today, and it’s impacting small business like never before,” said Dave Ramsey. “There is such a shortage of motivated, quality team members that small businesses are struggling to get their work done. We need to have an open and honest discussion about all of this.”
Rowe says evidence is everywhere that work ethic is “on the ropes.”
“Until very recently, it’s been impossible to prove that work ethic in America is on the ropes,” said Mike Rowe. “Today though, the evidence is everywhere, and the evidence demands a verdict. More to the point, it demands a solution. Our declining work ethic is directly related to the widening skills gap, the spiraling cost of a four-year degree, 11 million unfilled jobs, and a long list of stigmas and stereotypes that have discouraged an entire generation from exploring a career in the skilled trades. Whatever the solution might be, it starts with conversations like this one; it’s a conversation I’m honored to participate in.”
