Date: July 14, 2021

NFIB State Director Annie Spilman talked to NewsRadio 1080 KRLD in Dallas on Tuesday about the latest NFIB Small Business Optimism Index.

“Where we’re seeing some of the lagging is in the labor shortage and really just being to fill the positions so they can service the customers or complete orders.”
