"Back now to our conversation with Russ Tibo and Ryan let me get to a few more of your comments before we bring in our next guest, particularly with regards to training skilled workers, Chris rights as a current plant manager of a manufacturing facility and four manufacturing HR director slash production manager for over fifteen years in both metal and plastics. I am calling Bs manufacturing in the US has completely abdicated any responsibility for training new employees since the eighties. They want experienced people at relatively low wages right off the street. If you want lower wages to remain competitive. You must develop an in house training program that brings lower-wage entry level employees up to speed over time. We also heard from some of you in some pockets, where employers are increasing wages. Here's one listener who left a voice mail in our inbox. This is Bill I live in North Carolina. And I work in the logistics and warehouse and supply chain industry, and we've had a pretty good expansion of our business over the last six months, and we're really struggling with two items one is employee turnover where they're chasing higher wages and new facilities and new employers, and Secondly, trying to hire the right people as a result of that. We've had to probably increase our incoming salaries hourly salary is probably anywhere between ten and fifteen or twenty percent from what we did last year. So we're struggling with both turnover and securing the right employees. So having unemployment down as low as two to two and a half percent is definitely impacting, logistics and warehousing, easy to see how Bill thanks very much for sharing your story with us. Another one of our listeners tweeted, I hold a four year degree strangely enough in journalism, but transitioned into a trade job shortly. Following college. Because the pay was three times what a starting job in. My field would be I now make six figures yearly and work in the rural community. I grew up in I will withhold my thoughts on your bending your journalism degree good for you found something that works for you. But this listener has an interesting point because to stem, their brain, drain, some cities and counties and states are offering to pay workers to move there. There's a city in Nebraska that'll match signing bonuses for newcomers to the tune of five thousand dollars Vermont passed a law to pay people ten thousand dollars to move to Vermont and work remotely and a county northeast of Detroit is offering to take a chunk out of your student debt. That plan was the idea of Randy Myers, the president and CEO of the community foundation of Saint Clair county, and he joins us now to discuss it. Randy welcome to one A. Thanks, joshua. So this is called the come home award. Tell us what to come home award is how does that work. Yeah. The come home award program that we launched Bennett in early twenty sixteen is really turning traditional scholarship business models on their head. There are too many flaws in traditional scholarship to talk about doing that. But at its core what we're doing is changing the scholarship business model and instead of investing heavily in seventeen or eighteen year old who may or may not complete college or maybe not be right for college. We flipped it around. And we said we will pay you significantly upon completion of some kind of degree, but only you returned to our region to live and work, and it's really a come home reward paying. So this is for people who are who are from Saint Clair county to come back home to Saint Clair county. We have a very strong preference for those with family ties. I mean to to help protect our investments, we want people to know what it's like to live in small town, America. We wanna keep them. Here. We feel that they have some family connection here. Probably a better bet. They'll stay. Tell me about Saint Clair county paint me a picture. What's it like so small town America? Yeah. Waterfront community along the shores of lake Saint Clair river, our largest title port Huron has a population about thirty thousand people. We do not have a four year university in our region. We did not have a fortune five hundred company in our region. A thirty percent of our workforce, leased our county and heads down to metro Detroit to to be employed, but they love the small town life, family, friendly environment and amenities. We're small town America. Yes. I was just gonna ask you about Detroit. You're about an hour outside Detroit. Is that right? Yeah. And you were talking about earlier I wanted to mention, you know, Detroit has become a talent magnet, which is great for Detroit. But the health of American health the Michigan. I think is better Johnny on the economic health. The regions like port Huron or Marquette or muskegon Michigan. Right. It gives you a better barometer. What are to help? How did the recession? Do do in Saint Clair county where people hit their pretty hard. Yeah. I would say it hit here earlier than than hit the country and much more severely, the ironic part that we tell people let's really one of the things that led to this come on program was once we really hit rock bottom. Our stakeholders whether it was a land to be government business any other sector. We realized that we all had to get together and play a piece in economic growth and prosperity. We all had something to bring the table. But more importantly, we we reached a point where we stopped waiting for someone from Washington or someone from Lansing to come in. And save us with a plan. It had to be an organic plan that drove our prosperity. We're speaking to Randy Myers, the president and CEO of the community foundation of Saint Clair county in Saint Clair county, Michigan also still speaking to Russ Tibo. The president of Applied Economic Research and Ryan non-policy director of the Hamilton project and a fellow in economic studies at the Brookings Institution. Still time to get in some more of your questions and thoughts about the labor shortage one a at W A M U dot org. Tweet us. Us at one A or comments on our Facebook page where you can watch our video stream. So Randy tell me how the come home award works suppose. I'm from Saint Clair county, and I moved to. Chicago for work. And now I'm considering coming back. How does that work? Yeah. Chicago's a great example Chicago walked in the south as long as you do not have primary residence here. So.

"This new phase of, the US, economy one marked by, a shortage of workers rather than jobs civic leaders. In Hamilton Ohio and elsewhere are asking themselves why not pay people to move here it's a story by Wall Street Journal reporter. Shinde race shady what's going on Air, is potentially a worker shortage where companies just, can't find enough people to fill all the jobs that they have open and, so some places especially smaller cities small towns rural areas are offering to? Pay people money to move there it's incredible, what a, swing. From like yeah Two thousand eight two thousand nine. Right Those kids. Graduating college then who couldn't find anything Exactly Yeah now you'll get a job and you'll get money towards your student loan. Debt it's. Incredible so who's doing? What what kind of things that they? Dangling so one of the places that we profile pretty deeply in the story is city at, Hamilton. Ohio it's about an hour from, Cincinnati and this is one of these kind of standard rust belt. Cities it was once a hub for manufacturing paper mills and safe. Manufacturers it was once known as the safe capital of the. World but you, know there was a downturn in manufacturing and by the early, two, thousands you, know all those paper mills and manufacturers had, left and obviously you, had you, know the recession and the whole city was sort of. Decimated the downtown became just full of dilapidated. Buildings there was a two percent occupancy rate economy started turning and the city started really investing and trying to buy up the buildings and trying to bring employers back to the area and they've had some pretty decent. Success the problem is that they don't have The. People and this is an. Issue that is sort of going on all over the midwest and in the northeast where the population growth has just been really tepid especially in the labor force people in their prime working. Years between twenty five and fifty four The goal is to try to really convince young people. Come live in, our downtown hopefully that'll drive in more young people downtown and they can try to you know create a. Thriving urban center, sounds like a great, opportunity, when we say these cities are paying people to move. There in what ways they paying them so in Hamilton they are offering young people, who are willing to live downtown. Five thousand dollars towards their, student loan, debt in some places like in north Platte. Nebraska they're just willing to give you ten thousand dollars cash if you move there and you commit to living there for. Certain amount of time some places are offering you land some places are offering you you know money towards, the down payment on a home the idea is, just sort of give people an extra added incentive to come to these places who's offering land I think north Platte. Jeez yeah that's, unbelievable I there was one guy in your story university of, South Dakota economists call this like a modern day homestead act yeah. Exactly, I mean that's the idea like just just come here and we will you know give you money I I made a mistake if Marnie Iowa that's, offering land well that's really something we're speaking with Wall Street Journal reporter, Shane racer, stories called how bad is. The labor shortage cities will. Pay you to move there now that's say without the promise of a job they want you. To move there, and then look or you I think you need to probably have a job but I mean it's not. Very hard to, get one in these, places, you know you don't necessarily have to have a job. I think like in Hamilton they give you a certain amount of time to find, a job but you know part. Of the whole issue is, that there's, this worker shortage so it's not too hard. To find a job in these places boy is there a threat that this could on wind poorly when when The labor market turns you, know I think that that is a potential concern but most. Of these. Programs, are. Pretty small, Kerr now I mean we're talking about you know twelve people, here and, there in Nebraska. They've, only been able to attract two people, in Michigan Saint. Clair, county Michigan they've had more success they've got about forty, people, so but you know what I mean that's always sort of the issue when you're dealing. With you know, the cyclical nature of the economy, is kind of you know like right now we're telling all. These people to go into manufacturing there's a skills, gap there are, so many jobs in manufacturing but that's obviously a very. Cyclical industry, and so you know at some point there'll. Be a downturn and all, those people we've convinced to go into manufacturing won't be able to.

To get one, and these places you, know, you don't necessarily have to have a job I think. Like in Hamilton they give you a certain amount of time to find a job, but you know part of the whole issue is that there's this worker shortage though it's not too hard. To find a job in these places boy is there a threat that this could unwind poorly when the when the The labor market turns I think that that, is a potential concern but most of these programs. Are, pretty small, Kerr now I, mean we're, talking about you know twelve people here. And there in Nebraska they've only been able to attract, two people in, Michigan. Saint Clair county Michigan.
