job-losses-ahead

Let's be honest. The possibility of job loss right now is very real.  In the K-W area approximately 11,000 jobs were lost in manufacturing between 2006 and 2016 ¹.  For Ontario 290,000 manufacturing jobs were lost between 2000 and 2013².  Many people have moved from manufacturing to service sector jobs at much lower hourly wages compensating for some of the jobs lost.  The median income (the middle point of all incomes measured) barely changed from 2000 to 2012³.  Other factors that are often an obstacle to finding a job are: age, having inadequate training, more competition for jobs
