  • Canadian Youth Stressed About Money & Careers‏

    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 ...

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.

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 2,054,943 students enrolled in postsecondary education programs. These “sugar babies,” young people that receive an allowance in exchange for a relationship, are over-represented by female students. Over 40% of all sugar babies in Canada are pursuing postsecondary degrees. The most expensive cities tend to be the ones with the most student sugar babies. Using the email addresses, Seeking Arrangement determined that Toronto-based institutions scored the top two spots. 683 sugar babies using student emails were from the University of Toronto, and 577 students were from Ryerson University. Oh yeah, and if you’re wondering why you don’t see more young girls with Boomers, it’s because the average sugar daddy is only 38 – which is not at all what I pictured. Active Sugar Babies By University 1 In 10 Canadian Students Are Seeking “Sugar Daddies” To Help Pay The Bills - By University As identified by student email address domains. Information courtesy of Seeking Arrangement. Sex Work Doesn’t Always Involve Intercourse Not all sugar babies engage in an exchange of intercourse for money, although that does happen. According to Alexis Germany from Seeking Arrangement, sugar daddies are seeking “all the aspects of having a romance without the added baggage that comes with a more traditional relationship.” This can be anything from just talking on the phone, to sexting, cam shows, or the whole shebang. Is this predatory, or just smart students who have run their numbers and don’t want to end up in a pile of debt? According to Alexis, “everyone lays out their expectations from the very beginning.” Basically there’s an informal contract where the sugar daddies don’t have to worry if “she only likes me for my money” (spoiler, she does), and the sugar babies get to stipulate exactly what they will and won’t do for the arranged upon sum. It’s pretty much an employee, employer relationship – which makes me wonder how many daddies issue tax forms. Sugar Babies And The Economy The sugar baby employment sector has been experiencing large growth, likely due to the downturn in the Canadian economy. Alexis told us, “The costs of higher education, housing, food, etc. continue to rise, but salaries are not increasing. Many young people are looking for alternative ways to close the gap between what their paycheck will cover and what they need to live.” Probably not what your parents were hoping you’d do in college, but it’s apparently quite lucrative. According to Seeking Arrangement, the average monthly allowance given by sugar daddies is $2,700 (“plus gifts”). This is 80% higher than wages in the age group 24 and under. That’s if you can find a wage in that age group. Canadian youth unemployment has soared over the past ten years, and participation has also tanked. From 2006 to 2016, unemployment experienced a ~12% change, rising to 13.1% of the labour force. If that wasn’t bad enough, the participation rate that results in the labour force decreased by 3.6% to 63.7%. That was pretty number-y, but the bottom line is 1,590,900 kids aren’t working – 123,000 more than 10 years ago. Youth Not In Traditional Employment 1 In 10 Canadian Students Are Seeking “Sugar Daddies” To Help Pay The Bills - Youth Unemployment The Canadian economy is entering unchartered waters, where millennials have to hustle with what they’ve got. Instead of joining the club with record high debt, some are embracing non-traditional employment options. Whether these non-traditional employment options are enough to curb the economic headwinds, well…that’s up for debate. Leave your comments below.

Analysts link the anxiety among youth about their careers to Canada's expensive, corporatized post-secondary education system. In recent months Canada has seen a rise in student activism most notably in Quebec where students were able to oust the Jean Charest government and stop proposed tuition fee hikes. Analysts predict that the increased oppression of Canadian youth will engender a spike in such student activism in the near future.

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 not, basically the government determines who’s working by conducting a casual census-like survey. 50,000 households get contacted, and they ask them about their employment. You can probably see how this is imperfect. If your husband/wife/partner has been looking for a job for a while, you have two answers. You can tell a stranger about their struggle to find work, or you can just say they aren’t looking. If you say they aren’t looking, they’re deemed a non-participant of the labour market. Now the problem is, the number of participants of the labour market is dropping fast. The latest report cited that this is the lowest number in the 15 years of data that StatsCan provides – only 65.5%. That’s only 19.4 million “participants”, out of 29.3 million eligible Canadians. The 7% unemployment is removed from that number, leaving us with 18.063 million employed Canadians. That’s 50.3% of the population in case you’re curious. Canadians Are “Opting Out” Of Work More and more Canadians are becoming non-participants, and “opting out” of working. Although, this may not be as voluntary as the government would like you to believe. After you remove seniors and children, there’s 24.3 million Canadians that could be working. Sure, there’s stay at home parents, and people taking sabbaticals to recharge. Although, 25.6% is a little high considering we don’t have many stay at home parents with 2 kids and one income these days. And let’s be honest, 6.2 million lottery winners and independently wealthy individuals seems like a stretch too. Millennials Get ShaftedAgain One significant demographic that should be watched closely here is Millennials. No, not because they aren’t being paid enough to live in the two major cities with job growth in Canada. Unemployment for people under the age of 24 looking for jobs is a whopping 13.2%, almost twice the national average. Unfortunately, it’s hard to tell how they do after they hit 25 – we just bulk them in with everyone else up to 65 years of age. The good news is, that demographic only has a 6% unemployment rate. The bad news is, someone doesn’t hand you a job as soon as you hit 25. This means the rate is most likely skewed to be employed if you’re a Boomer, and less so if you’re a Millennial. How Does This Impact Real Estate This crunch on youth will impact homebuyers in a way most people haven’t thought about. Currently in a city like Toronto, the average homebuyer is 36 years of age. This means they likely entered the workforce around the year 2000, when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Way back in 2000, there were 1.305 million people under the age of 25 working full-time. This kept university debt low, and allowed almost 16 years of savings for a down payment on a home. Fast forward 16 years, that same demographic has 2.1% less jobs, but is 7% larger. Bottom line, there are 326k more people that will need to delay their financial goals by at least 5 years. This would make that 36 year old Toronto buyer at least 41 when they can afford to purchase a home, likely causing a gap of first time buyers. You know, unless we import them – but that would never happen, right? An increasing number of people “opting out” isn’t just a hit to their bank accounts, it’s a hit to Canada. It decreases the number of people generating maximum economic output, prevents cash flowing through the economy, and doesn’t generate tax revenue for the country. More important, if youth are suppose to be the future, we’re not setting them up to have a very good one. For the most part, Millennials want to work, but Canada isn’t fostering innovation or industry which creates meaningful employment. Millennials just want the same thing Boomers had when they were younger, full-time, secure employment, with decent benefits, and a high enough pay cheque that they can start a family, buy a home, and save for retirement. Seems like a pretty fair thing to expect.

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 develop and design a few blueprints of such second generation youth employment programs through its “Youth Employment Innovation Lab” and then pilot them in a few select countries. An area of particular focus is on connecting young people to digital jobs. A strong theme in all of S4YE’s operations and innovation focus is on evidence building through robust evaluations. Active youth voice and engagement will be a key element in all of S4YE’s governance, strategy and operations.
