KY Restaurant Jobs Outlook

With the federal governoment reporting the creation of 390-thousand new jobs last month the restaurant industry in Kentucky is hoping for even a fraction of those new job numbers.“Coming out of the pandemic, we were really low and we did see wages increase, which is great,” Stacy Roof from the Kentucky Restaurant Association said. “But we still haven’t seen as many people come back as we need.”Normally, when someone says the phrase “pre-pandemic,” they’re referring to a good thing. Restaurants have struggled throughout the pandemic, but things weren’t exactly rosy before it either,” she says.
