A Shortage of Workers?

This begins an op-ed piece from Crain's Detroit Business, published in a place where unemployment is just slightly higher than in the rest of the country (subscription only):

As baby boomers get older and retire, many companies face the emerging reality that soon there will be more open positions than available workers.
Human resources departments are working on how to make their company more attractive. Compensation and traditional perks, however, are not solely what Gen Y’s are seeking from their new employer. Say hello to the socially conscious potential

The new workers prefer that that employers help them support their favorite causes.

Perhaps the employers should actually support their decision to bear and raise children ...
