“The economy is weakening, big companies from Ford Motor Co. to Facebook are cutting jobs or freezing hiring and inflation is eating into household budgets. Yet, for many middle market business owners, finding workers is as difficult as ever. The challenges are prompting owners to seek more creative ways to fill labor shortages at a time when they might have expected hiring to get easier.” WSJ, 9.27.2022

  • Tools available to business owners to navigate these challenges
