Worker shortages in our area are nothing new.
On Wednesday, a group of business leaders gathered to talk about one issue that keeps people from finding jobs, and that’s the lack of available child care.
Organizers of this event say parts of Cambria county are “child care deserts”.
According to them, that means there are sections of the population with kids under 5 that have no access to child care providers and they say that keeps capable people out of the workforce.
“So today, were going to look at the employer role, were going to think about economic impact, were going to think about cross sector strategies in order to support working families in childcare”
