How is the labor shortage affecting your business or operation? (Brent Peterson)

So far this year, we have not had any issues with the labor shortage. We managed to keep all staff during the slowdown last year and have no current need for hiring.

Some of our partners in the railcar repair industry are having difficulty hiring skilled labor, especially with the oil patch starting up again. Working conditions for railcar repair technicians have improved since we built our repair shops and that helps attract long term employees. Good pay, benefits, and a positive work environment helps keep our current staff on board.
