When I read the title to this thread, I thought how strange underground transportation would be in Moultonborough...

Not one able-bodied person should be collecting Government assistance now.

There is something very rewarding about having a good work-ethic. I can't imagine spending life watching TV waiting for the mail to bring me a check.

When I was in single digit-age, I mowed lawns for $2 and saved. Today, I understand a worker under age 18 can't operate "dangerous" machinery....Like a blender in an ice cream store.

That would be dependent on location.
Moultonborough is isolated, so it has less of a labor pool.
With a small labor pool, sometime it takes more than money.

Management is going to have to be very tough on customers that are rude, and they will need to better define and target their customers.

Unemployment is at 2.5 plus or minus where you are in the state. That’s close to full employment. People collecting unemployment and kids not working is not the problem . Employer’s that pay decent money have help the rest just complain and blame others and close their businesses.

I just googled 'Subway Moultonborough NH' and the google display says it is temporarily closed in red. Is really hard for me to believe they cannot get a good new person to work hard at creating a high quality and well made sub sandwich for $17/hr when the minimum NH wage is $7.25/hr.

Is best for a sandwich business like Subway to get an attractive, flirty, and friendly WOMAN for this job because she would automatically be a business builder that attracts and keeps customers coming in the door even if she makes a totally crappy sandwich ....... ha-ha-ha ...... just kidd'n about that crappy sandwich comment. Some sandwich GIRL with attitude!

$17 is a pretty decent starting wage.

Moultonborough is extremely rural and out of the way.

So it may take more of a starting wage... and the business revenue may not support that starting wage.

Meredith Subway is also listed as temporarily closed.

A business cannot pay wages that cause an operating loss.

When higher wages are paid prices must rise.

How much is one willing to pay for a Subway sub?

Some businesses have enough demand to post significant price increases to pay for higher wages and still be busy.

Some cannot do so.

I suspect that employers have been complaining about the scarcity and high cost of labor since the dawn of civilization.

In our current time, the government is serving as a staffing competitor.

My macro view is that I get to pay inflated prices, employers get extra heart burn and my grandkids get a huge tax bill.

The inflated prices due to labor isn't based on any government program. The State of NH is paying people to go back to work... we simply do not have that many unemployed in our area, Meredith and Moultonborough are considered rural with lower population, and other employment opportunities are calling.

I think that too many think that NH was going to be cheap living... SURPRISE!

Also, not a new thing for the area... just another cycle.

I suspect the franchise holder is far too exhausted to continue any further.

A lot of these restaurants and take out business have been surviving on the owners to step up to the plate and fill in wherever needed. However, filling in 12 hours a day and 7 days a week is no fun. One can do it for a month or so, but after that it's burnout time.

Additionally, it may be more feasible or profitable for an owner to work for someone else in order to obtain a full menu of benefits; i.e. days off, vacation, health benefits, etc.

I would sell one franchise (the farthest from were I lived or liked to work) at break even or as close as I could get... and shorten the hours of the other one.
