A new survey from StatsCan has revealed the location and rate of job vacancies across Canada.

    The jobs facing the highest vacancies are the ones paying minimum wage or near minimum wage. In expensive cities like Vancouver, youth living at home are about the only ones able to survive on these wages. The gap between livable wage and real wages seems to be growing larger and will likely lead to greater recruitment problems in the near future. More businesses, I believe, will deal with this by hiring seniors who have some money coming in but not quite enough to live on. For these businesses willing to hire seniors, more part time and shorter shifts may be required to work best with this population.
