78% were either very or extremely concerned about labor availability
63% do not believe they will meet their 2022 hiring plan
61% are either very or extremely concerned about rising wage levels
65% are offering larger than usual employee wage increases
43% are offering higher than usual starting compensation.

Two examples:
1. One services company has three pricing tiers, a. Full price, b. 50% discount for a family on NSLP and c. 100% discount for a family that still can’t afford that.
2. One recreational sport company didn’t want to raise participation fees so instead created many optional equipment add-ons that allowed them to capture extra revenue from families that had means and were interested.
