Veale Institute’s Michael Goldberg discusses lifeguard shortgages in Cleveland

Cleveland pools reduce hours due to lifeguard shortages

WEWSMichael Goldberg, associate professor of design and innovation at Weatherhead School of Management and executive director of the Veale Institute for Entrepreneurship, noted that communities across Northeast Ohio have been forced to restrict hours at their pools this summer due to a decrease in applicants for seasonal lifeguarding positions. “You want to make sure that during that time when it’s great swimming weather that our pools are open and that people can be active and having fun, so it’s sad to see, you know, limited hours and pools closed,” he said.
