“There’s an employee retention tax credit that is fairly complicated and most restaurants have not gone out and gotten that tax credit and I’m really trying to encourage them to do that because it can mean a lot of money,” she said. “So I’ve been trying to tell them get out there get this money and use it for bonusing people ” She also says help is out there for business owners. Meanwhile, Wight asks us all to please be patient next time we go out to eat, knowing the staffing shortage can sometimes mean slower service.
“We’re offering sign-on bonuses in a restaurant which is something I’ve never done. In Alamogordo, we’re offering $750 for a sign on bonus to join our culinary team,” said Moore. In an attempt to recruit workers, Lescombes is offering incentives.
Wight says some other restaurants are paying higher hourly wages to attract employees and the association is looking at holding a job fair soon. The federal unemployment supplement is scheduled to run out in September.
