Local Businesses And The Economic Recovery From The Pandemic

Jason Whitman
People visit Downtown as businesses reopened in May 2020 following shutdowns due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With pandemic restrictions easing, local business owners are looking to the future and what they hope is a better year ahead. But many concerns still linger. Some industries have been hit hard by a worker shortage. Many restaurants are finding labor in short supply and even Kings Island has cut park hours due to staffing issues.

Now that workers are beginning to return to the office how will this impact Downtown business? And how is our region doing in recovering from jobs lost during the pandemic?

Joining Cincinnati Edition to discuss local businesses in this stage of the recovery are Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber President and CEO Jill Meyer; and African American Chamber of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky President and CEO Eric Kearney.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
