MILWAUKEE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- In June, the Federal Government reported more than 6 million job openings nationwide.
That includes more than 1.5 million in the Midwest. It also means that there are more than 134,000 job openings in Wisconsin alone.
One of the industries struggling to find workers is restaurants.
The owner of Sobelman's says workers are causing more problems than anything else.
"Sometimes the employees are playing us against one another. They know they can quit on a dime and be hired at another restaurant," said Dave Sobelman, owner of Sobelman's Pub and Grill.
For the past two years, job openings have consistently outpaced new hires.
