GEORGIA RESTAURANTS REPORT LABOR SHORTAGES AFTER HB87
Georgia restaurants report labor shortages after the anti immigration bill HB87 passed in Georgia. About half of the 523 restaurants who participated in a survey this month stated that they are having trouble finding workers. With Georgia's high unemployment rates it must be related to HB87. About 75% of the participants are located in the metro Atlanta area. 91% of the restaurants surveyed said they were opposed to Georgia's immigration bill. Not surprising if they cannot find workers to fill critical positions.
