One Response to Our Team

    Hi — really enjoy your column in the TJ. One issue that I haven’t seen you address (perhaps I missed it) is the reluctance of NB employers to hire apprentices. There’s lots of moaning about the mis-match between skilled jobs and the labour to do it, and employers complain that they can’t attract and retain tradespeople because they can’t match the wages and benefits paid out west. But at the same time they won’t hire apprentices and class after class of young people graduate from NBCC and then leave the province. Our son is graduating from the industrial electrician program next month and is getting a pretty clear message from employers here that they have no interest in him. Short-sighted IMHO, and not just because he’s our kid. If employers hire apprentices they get skilled employees who work at a lower rate under the supervision of a tradesman, who can become loyal employees who settle here and build a labour force that will attract other employers. The government is starting new programs with high school students to attract them to skilled work, but what’s the point if they can’t get their tickets? Once our son moves out west to find work, he”ll never be back. My husband and I are professionals who moved back home from Ontario in the early 1990s to raise our family and support our aging parents. We only have my Mom left, she’s 90 and once she’s gone I suspect we’ll be packing up and retiring wherever our son lands, taking his and our taxes and contribution to NB’s economy elsewhere. Too bad — I’d rather stay here and so would our son.
