Talent Pool Shrinking in Auto Body Industry
AUSTINTOWN, Ohio — Ron Latone, president of Superior Auto Body Inc. runs the business with his brother, John Latone Jr., who is vice president. The company operates auto body shops in Austintown and Girard.
The Latones say they work with some of the nearby vocational schools to recruit workers but the students often lack the work ethic required to succeed.
“That’s probably the hardest part about where we’re going to find our employees,” says John Latone Jr.
