I'm seeing stores not able to restock due to few employees, or close completely

Extremely long lines in businesses and often reduced hours due to lack of employees. Also, current employees are stressed, over worked and tired! This leads to incorrect orders and often they are rude because they're overwhelmed and in a hurry. It's all very sad and frustrating.

Yes the Demarcates socialist agenda is seriously Hurting this Country! Help wanted signs everywhere, trying to get help with most things is months off, even KFC has no food sometimes, the cook had not arrived. Try to get a plumber or a painter, months out!

Democrats are working with large on line sellers and corporations to destroy small business competitors. COVID lock downs, living rent free and government checks are destroying neighborhood businesses. How do politicians become millionaires?

I work at brightwood in madras for starters so obviously the worker shortage has hit us badly! I have been working 11 hour shifts since the beginning of COVID and there seems to be no end in sight everyone is over worked and extremely tired to the point where people call in daily just to get rest

I'm a manager for a gas station I should have about 8 to 10 employees and I have 1. People in this state do not understand how gas stations work but yet are so impatient, so pathetic, and demand to be served the second they pull in, it's getting out of hand! And this state NEEDS TO GO self-serve

All the businesses with employees shortages are just terrible companies to work for or don't pay enough.

If you pay a living wage you don't have problems, start at $30/hr

I don't pay well. But I treat them all like human beings, and have pretty good luck with employees.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
