    We just retired to a small North Carolina mountain town. We purchased a 1951 build house that requires quite a bit of work. We have the money to afford paying to have the more complex work done but due to the shortage of trades workers, getting anyone to even call us back has been difficult. Out of six HVAC companies within a 30 mile radius, only one bothered to return my call. The handyman services are worse, and one had a $185 per hour labor rate! The more affordable handymen we tried do poor work. The electrician who responded was booked two months out. So what good is it for the rich to get richer if there are no laborers left to build what your money can buy?

Watchman, what of the night?
