Myrtle Beach, South Carolina (WBTW) — Campgrounds and travel parks are feeling a labor shortage in the Grand Strand as the area becomes one of the busiest summer seasons of the last few years.
Taylor Divir Gillis, Operations Manager at Myrtle Beach Travel Park, said:
Jessica Stevens, Executive Administrative Assistant at Lakewood Camping Resort, said, “We’ve already exceeded the numbers since 2019. July 4th is already full and other weekends are starting to fill up.” I will.
“We are definitely experiencing a shortage of employees, but we are doing our best to overcome it,” said Di Virgilis.
Having more visitors means that we need more workers. According to Stevens, he currently has about 200 employees and wants to have about 250.
“Specifically, we usually have enough staff by the beginning of May, but later this season it’s hard to find people to work here,” he says. I did.
Stevens said the low number of workers had an impact.
“Like any other business or hospitality industry, having fewer employees means having to work overtime if possible, because someone has to regain slack somewhere,” he said. Told
