SD businesses still struggling to fill their staffs

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The struggle of businesses to find enough workers has been well documented but for many, that shortage is hitting the bottom line.

Dave Owen, President of the South Dakota Chamber of Commerce & Industry, says a number of his members have been losing business for some time due to the shortages.

Owen says those businesses could miss out on future deals.

Owen says manufacturing plants are looking at options like more automation.

Many companies are offering incentives like sign on bonuses and expanded benefits and vacation.
