Tomorrow, in our Underemployment Around the Globe section, we feature a touching essay from a Canadian citizen about her struggles in the Canadian job market. It’s a wonderful piece about preserving your dignity and self worth in the face of severe underemployment. In preparation for that story, we picked a news report on Canada’s growing underemployment problem for this week’s clip.
The report does an excellent job highlighting the chief reasons Canada is suffering massive underemployment, primarily among its youth. The clip is from 2012, bud sadly, is still relevant. It’s heady stuff, and shows the rising tensions in a country where a large number of young, educated people can’t find skilled or well paying jobs in their field.
