Trend in employment numbers a concern

There is good reason to be concerned about what has happened to employment numbers in Canada over the last few months.

While employment numbers fluctuate from month to month, Statistics Canada is reporting that, “there has been little overall employment growth in Canada since August 2013.”

Equally disturbing is that the majority of the jobs being created are not the good, well-paying jobs that pay enough for people to live comfortably. According to Statistics Canada, over half of the jobs created between April 2013 and April 2014 were part-time.
