NHBR: NH Businesses Facing “Perfect Storm of Supply-Side Burdens
From New Hampshire Business Review:
The New Hampshire economy needs more of just about everything, except it doesn’t need more jobs, more consumers or even more businesses.
Granite State businesses don’t have enough workers. They don’t have enough goods to sell. There aren’t enough houses or apartments for people to live in. In short, New Hampshire is short of enough supply to meet post-pandemic, pent-up demand.
“We now have a twin pandemic,” said Amy LaBelle, owner of LaBelle Winery. “A pandemic of no employees and no supplies.”
