Employers could soon have an answer to why they’re still struggling to find talented young staff when many youths are out of work.

    Honestly, is this really such a mystery? We have created a highly educated young generation, with expectations to match, at the same time as we've watched the proportion of available professional/career jobs decline. There are lots of lower-pay hourly positions with little or no options for advancement. What university or college graduate wants, or can afford, or should, accept one? And, who, beyond the lucky few, will be able to purchase a home or car or other big-ticket item in future? If the government isn't capable of delivering some dramatic and visionary solutions, there will be a very uncomfortable reckoning in the next 10-20 years!

    Governments (federal and provincial) need to research the scope of Underemployment and how specific root causes can be addressed. That should help remove the veil of mystery.
