Maybe...that's some kinda good thing. You're in it for the love of what you do, not the money. I would assume PA Amish country has a low cost of living?

Did you have a hard time keeping qualified people?

Generally not, though there was some, more often from those who came to the RR only for a paycheck, and not for the enjoyment and satisfaction that could be found in the work.

I wonder what the pay is. Equivalent experience in general industry would be at least $35-40 an hour plus a comprehensive benefit package.

Times have changed. Decent people with reputable skillsets akin to what is needed for a role of this nature require appropriate compensation. You'd be fortunate to find an individual with the background and mindset for less than $40/hr. these days.
