I just have a question for you. Do you have a hard time keeping & finding quality employees up there?

That's a problem almost everywhere now. For the majority of my business-owner friends in Alaska, getting/keeping good help is one of the toughest parts of running their businesses. Here in the Yukon, I gave up and downsized to the point that I can do almost all of the work myself now.

Thanks Murray. My sister owns a store up there & I can't believe the problems she has!! People don't show up, don't call, show up late, walk out etc!! She has a new store almost ready to open (she's had the business 7 years in a different location) & poor thing calls me up in tears with what she's having to put up with. I would work for her but I lived up there along time ago & HATED it! I just wondered if anyone else encountered this problem. She & her husband are suppose to meet us in Maui in 12 days & now they can't go because of the employee problem, plus a new store opening. One problem after the next!! Our trip was planned about a year ago & I'm so sad that she can't come.
