What job shortage.. now we are flying retail workers to fill stores remotely.

Quote:

Menard to fly Wis. workers in to staff North Dakota store

BISMARK, N.D. — Home improvement retailer Menard Inc. says it will hire workers from its home base in Wisconsin and fly them to North Dakota to staff a store in Minot, which is near the state’s booming oil patch and has more jobs than takers.

The company said in a statement that it plans to hire 50 workers in Eau Claire, Wis., where it has its headquarters, and fly them weekly to Minot, which is also in the middle of an unprecedented building boom as it recovers from record flooding last year.

Menard, which has more than 200 stores in the Upper Midwest, said this would be the first time it has ferried in workers by airplane, but it believes jetting in employees for weeklong stints and housing them in hotels “is going to be a permanent solution for as far as we can see.”

Minot is North Dakota’s fourth-largest city and had been growing rapidly even before the flooding that swamped some 4,100 homes and displaced thousands of residents. Its population grew from 36,500 in 2000 to about 41,000 in 2010, U.S. Census data show. City officials say the present population is nearing 50,000.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Hmmm...now that I think about it, it makes perfect sense.


Since you want to keep your workforce on about the same intellectual level....

If you run out of North Dakota dumbasses, ya bring in the next closest thing...some sconnie numnuts.

Even a poetry teacher in socialist Minnesota can't argue with facts.

Minot is a shithole though, but Twin City dwellers might find it homey.
