B.C. MLA and advanced education critic David Eby is visiting a number of the province's campuses to talk about a study he has prepared that focuses on student loans, employment, and education.
B.C. residents, aged 15 to 29, face Canada’s worst absolute unemployment rate, while at the same time B.C.’s employers are hiring the most temporary foreign workers in Canada because they say they can’t find the skills they need in workers here. David’s presentation links education, training, student loans and employment to show how B.C.’s abandonment of its social contract with the next generation is already showing troubling impacts in the province’s economy.
