Given the pay offered, weak transit system and high rents, Charleston won'the ever have the workers it needs. How does keep pay low help this. It costs 20 dollars a day to park downtown. Rent for a one room apartment is 1500 a month. No trained businessperson would accept those numbers.
I started in this business when I was 12 and went to culinary school at 18 and owned my own restaurant in Charleston by the time I was 23. I sold it in 2010 seeing what was coming and it was the best decision I've made.. I now drive a truck for a major purveyor in town and still have contacts in town and the talent pool is atrocious, you have major names in the chef business coming here but not the line cooks to back them up... why? Most cooks can go anywhere else and make 20-30% more. Start paying staff the money they are worth and they will come running.

What did John Lewis ever do to you? Go meet him. He is a very nice guy who would help you learn to cook BBQ if you asked.
I always believed that America had more migration periods as this great article was released to the public. If sea faring people can find Hawaii, Easter Island, New Zealand, etc, How could paleo migrants not bump into a entire , big as hell continent???? . Just my thoughts, DC Happy Turkey day
You are right Frank. GOD is great. To the Doctors, the Donors and the recipients even the non-believers.
