Tasmania’s hospitality sector is in urgent need of workers willing to join the industry and learn on the job, says Tasmanian Hospitality Association (THA) CEO Steve Old.
The worker shortage has reportedly led to numerous venues across the state temporarily closing to reassess.
The THA is now calling on the State Government to address the skills shortage across the industry before peak season hits.
Listen as Steve Old joins Mike O’Loughlin to discuss the shortage, the impact it's having on the industry, and what needs to be done to fix it.
Tasmanians of all skill levels interested in joining the hospitality industry are encouraged to call the THA on 6220 7300.
