At it's current level it is very difficult for retail/commercial/restaurants/service companies to get sufficient people to staff the businesses that serve the needs of residents of TV. Now add all the future businesses as TV continues it's expansion South.

There is not sufficient affordable housing. There is a limit to how far folks are willing to drive to get here to work.

One of the negative side effects is compromised selectivity when looking for the best of the best.
Another is that businesses ability to replace currently unacceptable performing employees.

More and more job opportunities to come....insufficient work force to fill the current jobs.

How to attract and maintain "good" help!?!

Couldn't agree more. Look at the rents on apartments in the area then look at what the workers get paid. It's only going to get worse and only so many older people want to get back in the job market! Affordable housing is definitely needed but who's going to build it.

Florida salaries have always been 40 yrs being what is paid in other areas of the country, an example a waiter @ a local restaurant was an EMT in OCALA, he left an $11.00 hr job to become a waiter here, people, we are surrounded by a lot of have-nots--its a shame- but we can not compare our six figure retirement incomes to locals who are still working

I don't think many or most Villages have six figure incomes. I think that the market will drive the changes and attract people to live here and find homes in their price range just as it has done in the past couple of decades. The biggest problem with jobs here and in all of Florida is the higher need only part of the year that is high season and reduced need the rest of the time..

I think the work force in the future may well be all of the new people who have recently moved to the U.S.

I'm pretty sure that Sumter county has one of the highest unemployment rates in the state. If that is true why aren't all of the unemployed individuals accepting all of the newly created jobs?

Workforce housing will be built behind Lowes on 466A and on the Beaumont property next to Lowes. A good start, but more is needed.

There is a labor shortage in every industry, nationwide. The only answer is immigration. We need to develop a LEGAL way to bring in the people who want to work. Where else will we find the landscapers, the CNAs, the housekeepers, the waiters, and those who will take care of us, and also pay taxes into the system.

Who historically stepped in to fill jobs in an expanding economic sector? Immigrants and transferees.

So the current unemployed US people will stay unemployed? That’s the other Half of that picture.

I'm willing to bet all the NYC retiree's ,here have six figure incomes-be it pensions alone, NJ school teacher's here have six figure pensions, California public employee's here definitely have six figure pensions + what they sold their houses for-- there are two worlds in the US=-- big cities on the east & west coast and the rest of us.

Pretty much. With an unemployment rate around 3.6% anyone that wants a job has a job..
