Legislative Impact on Foodservice Labor Market

Legislative Impact on Foodservice Labor Market


Last Published: 09/29/2017

The foodservice industry is a large and fast-growing sector of the economy and it currently employs nearly five million women and four million men in food preparation and serving occupations.


However, the foodservice industry is struggling to come to terms with the realities of the current labor market, due to the upswing in the global economy and the perceived disadvantages of the industry to prospective employees.

Finding, hiring, training and retaining employees is nearly as big of challenge as paying the increased minimum wages that are being mandated across the U.S. and Canada. These challenges span all segments of the industry and require new methods to solve them. Here are some of those challenges and tips on how to retain your best staff.
