Its directly proportional to what they pay:

G4S is recently quoted as paying a range of $11.58-24.94/hr for armed bank security guards. This being a relative senior position with the org ( I say relative as theres really no such thing) You should see what the firm pays rent a cops in malls and patrols.
The same armed bank security people have to work 10 yrs in order to get a paltry 3wk holiday increment.
The same firm has a turnstile of recruiting because they can't retain anybody because they don't pay valid wages and benefits commensurate with the positions, responsibilities and risks.

The problem isn't really getting employees, its paying enough to keep them, from a firm that is the second biggest international employer to Walmart according to some sources and that has made record obscene profits in every year of operation.
