The tight labor market and housing are leaving Cape businesses struggling

DENNIS – Small business owners met with Attorney General Maura Healy on Monday to share a number of concerns about housing costs and labor shortages as they head into the busy summer season.

Healy met with business and civic leaders at 3 p.m. at Dennis Mercantile, a small breakfast, lunch and coffee shop. People gathered around a rectangular table. With coffee and cold drinks in front of them, they took turns sharing their worries about work, housing and childcare just weeks after July 4th.

Healy made three stops during a tour of Cape Cod on Monday. Except for Dennis’ stop, she toured the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay and held a roundtable discussion with members of the disability community after a tour of Cape Abilities Farm.
