CANADA 1 In 10 Canadian Students Are Seeking “Sugar Daddies” To Help Pay The Bills Now for an employment trend you won’t see from Statistics Canada. Way back in the day you used to be able to work a summer job and save enough to pay off tuition. Unfortunately in 2017, this is no longer even close to a reality for most. Rising tuition costs of “necessary” degrees, low youth employment, and rising debt has created an environment where millennials are scrambling to stay afloat. That’s not a secret. The secret is: 1 in 10 Canadian students are seeking sex work to help pay the bills. 206,800 Students Are Looking For Sugar Daddies Over 206,800 students are using the platform Seeking Arrangement to find “sugar daddies.” That’s a staggering number once you realize Statistics Canada shows only 2...

A newly published Ipsos Reid survey suggests that 90% of Canadian young adults are feeling stressed about careers and money. The study demonstrated that young adults were more likely than older Canadians to be underemployed, overworked, and in part time jobs. And those who are part-time labourers are more likely to succumb to work related stress. Analysts observe that with the globalization of corporate power global elites are able to blackmail governments into affording them concessions such as deregulated labour laws. This, analysts say, has a direct impact on the emerging generation of workers who can be hired and fired more easily. Thus young workers are increasingly finding themselves in precarious employment situations with the comfortable "job for life" largely being a relic of a ...
Only 50% Of Canadians Have Jobs, The Unemployment Pandemic Last week the Canadian government released a new round of employment numbers. They weren’t stellar, but they weren’t bad – 7% unemployment. Now that’s almost twice as high as China, and a couple of points above the US, but once again not terrible. Although, a closer inspection revealed that only half of people in Canada have a source of income. If that weren’t bad enough, that number is rapidly rising. Unemployment stats fail to reflect a significant number of people that just don’t work. Unfortunately, this will change the future of our economy, and Canada in general – and not in a good way. Cooking The Employment Books You’ve heard the term unemployment, but you likely don’t know how we get that number. If you do, great! If no...

http://www.s4ye.org: Solutions for Youth Employment (S4YE) is a multi-stakeholder coalition among public sector, private sector, and civil society actors that aims to provide leadership and resources for catalytic action to increase the number of young people engaged in productive work. While there are numerous youth employment initiatives being implemented across the globe, S4YE’s focus is on developing and delivering innovative second generation of youth employment programs – especially those that explicitly link supply side and demand-side interventions, and work together with the private sector. Traditional programs have focused mainly on “supply side” interventions (e.g., training, counseling, job search assistance, etc.) and have had limited impacts on jobs. The coalition intends to ...
