Question à propos de Anglais (GB)

How do you use the plural form of 'shortage'?

I understand the meaning of this word, but in Russian it's uncountable, so I found the plural form a bit confusing. For example, there is such a collocation as 'food shortages', and in the same time there is also 'a shortage of food'. And still there is 'labour shortage' and not 'labour shortages' in a dictionary. I just can't catch the pattern.

P.S. I would appreciate it if you could also correct mistakes I may have made in this text.
