    I know people that own a couple motels here in Bar Harbor. They couldn't get their usual Jamaican workers. They have a skeleton crew and have advertised statewide for over minimum wage plus end of summer bonus (think it works out to $15 an hour) plus free housing. They had multiple locals not bother to show up for scheduled interviews.

    Not sure they could get anyone but H2-Bs to agree to come to Bar Harbor for 4 months and clean motel rooms. It's ****ty work and when it's done you need to pack up and move somewhere else. Not many want to do that. Once upon a time Bar Harbor inns could get by on lobstermans wives for seasonal housekeepers (they didn't need year round work). Not anymore.
    Guess they need to offer more then. ****ty work should pay more, just because it'as ****ty. Who wants to do that unless they're getting something out of it?

    Or you could just hire illegals and poor third world people to do it, for cheap. They know ****ty from where they come from. Cleaning motel rooms ain't it.

    Read an article a while ago about some fancy luxury hotel, I think in the UP who were having the same issue. Rooms there went for something like $220/night. Say if they only had 35 rooms filled, they're still pulling in almost $8000 a night. And the owner said he couldn't afford to pay more for help. 15 housekeeping staff at $15/hr for say, six hours a day is still only $1350 a day. And I doubt if they need 15 people.
    What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

            I agree for the most part, they probably do need to raise pay if they can't get visa workers. I still think its hard to find enough people locally for all of the seasonal businesses in Maine or enough that want to relocate for 4 months. You really need someone that moves around following seasonal work, and that takes a special kind of worker. I'm not sure they could charge any more for their rooms, I'd classify most of their properties as 'budget' accommodations. I have a feeling if they had to pay $20-$25 an hour for housekeepers, they would shut down their oldest motel, which they don't get much per night, and hope they can sell it to someone that wants to tear it down and redevelop the property. The local labor market can't really support a sub $50 motel room -- its just too cheap (and the place is too much of a dump to charge more, but that's their problem).

                With all this winning going on by the Republicans, what can we expect from the Democrats in the run up to 2018?

                Rep. Joe Crowley, the fourth-ranked Democrat in the House, in an interview with the Associated Press, says: "We don't have a fu**ing clue. We'll get back to you on that." [/paraphrasing]

                  "Dems in crisis" is like "LOLMets." Whether it's true or not the media knows it always has an easy laugh line there.

                  I did read a great Comment a few days ago.

                  DNC: "I wish we could find out what the voters want."

                  Voters: "Single payer would be great."

                  DNC: "I guess we'll never know."

                    The Dems should be mum on any candidates or platforms until after the midterms AT EARLIEST. Let the Republicans dominate the cycle and continue to crash.

                      I think they should put a stalking horse out there to attract all the GOP derp, keep the powder dry on the real contenders until fairly late. The Republicans (let alone Dump) have no self discipline. Let them waste their energy and money.

                        Seeing what an impulsive, none-too-bright child Trump is makes me want to see his tax returns released even more. It won't happen, but it would be interesting to see what the reality is (as described by qualified experts). I know it doesn't take a genius to make bags of money if you are given a large enough bag to start with, but this guy . . . .
