Eklhart County to recruit labor outside the region

(Oct. 12, 2017) -- “We’ve got to start telling Elkhart County’s story outside of our region. I think, you know, the viewership knows things are going really well here but I wonder do people in southern Indiana, or West Virginia, or Florida or Texas, do they know how great things are in this region?” asked Mark Dobson, executive director of Elkhart County’s Economic Development Corporation.

ELKHART, Ind. — There’s a plan in place to aggressively and immediately attack Elkhart County’s labor shortage, reported WNDU.

The plan calls for filling open local positions with folks who now live far away.

  1. I wonder if they are telling people that may decide to move to the county that the industry is very cyclical and when it goes down (and it will) there is no other industry in the county?

    All these units being sold now ~~ how many will soon decide the RV is not for them? When they find themselves shoehorned in to neighbors, when the warranty runs out~~ I foresee a lot of units hitting the used market or being repossessed when they find out how far underwater they really are.
