August 16th, 2018 Comments off


FromBuldersConstructionManufacturedHousingDailyBuisnessNewsMHProNewsThe National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) is a national trade group that reportedly includes hundreds of manufactured housing connected members, among their 325,000 total members.


NFIB is big enough to do the kind of research that most manufactured housing industry specialized trade associations can’t afford to do, or in one case, won’t do.


Among those are business confidence surveys, as well as what the top issues that faces independent businesses, trends, and so forth.


From a media release to the Daily Business News on MHProNews: “The July jobs report shows the magnitude of small businesses that are growing and hiring at record levels, creating new jobs and opportunities for the workforce, and offering employees higher compensation,” said NFIB President and CEO Juanita D. Duggan.


Job openings are most frequent in:
construction (57 percent),
manufacturing (46 percent),

and wholesale trades (45 percent).

Small business owners reported job openings for both skilled and unskilled labor. Thirty-three percent reported openings for skilled workers and 15 percent reported openings for unskilled labor, both two points higher than June’s report,” the NFIB tells MHProNews.


Small business owners are continuing to show that they’re looking to hire and willing to pay more to hire the right employees,” said NFIB Chief Economist Bill Dunkelberg. “Record job openings suggest that the economy can keep up its growth pace over the next few years if the labor shortage can be resolved or mitigated.”
