With U.S. unemployment rates reaching record lows, packagers who still use manual labor for bagging, bottling, cartoning, or other applications will start to feel a squeeze. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, unemployment was down to just 3.9% as of July 2018. Packagers will face higher labor costs cutting into their margins if suitable staff can be found at all.
