SARANAC LAKE — A manager at Aldi in Saranac Lake says the grocery store may need to close indefinitely starting in September if she can’t hire a handful of new employees in the next few weeks.

Store manager Melanie Fullum said several employees are moving away or going back to school in the fall, leaving the store with a staff so small that she doesn’t think they’ll be able to stay open.

First, the far right wing extremists said that people wouldn't work because of the extended unemployment insurance. That ended long ago. Then Moscow Mitch said that people wouldn't work because they had so much money on hand from stimulus checks. That money is long gone. There was just too quick of an increase in demand and too small a supply of workers. Any other theory needs evidence.
