David Kyhn, owner of Home Instead Senior Care which provides caregiving services in Milwaukee and Waukesha, said he’s desperate to hire employees after noticing a 75% decline in applications this year.
“It’s very frustrating, we’ve increased our wages by 25%, we’ve offered very generous signing bonuses and nothing seems to work,” said Kyhn.

By the way, $10 X 2080 hours (full-time work) = $20,800 per year.
Not a living wage.
