British Columbia's crumbling infrastructure
    #1498138 - 04/27/03 04:50 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I dont know whats going on where ever you are from, but here in BC, things are beginning to change.

-the baby boomers are retiring in hoardes, which is freeing up thousands of jobs related to social infrastructure (civil service, middle management etc)
-but the problem is, the new generation of university grads isnt interested in those kinds of jobs, people dont want to work 9-5's anymore, or be tied down by long-term "careers"
-instead, lots of people are opting for seasonal employment, which allows for more freedom and mobility.
-but the problem is....there is a drastic need for people to fill these infrastructure positions, and there will be major problems if they dont get filled.
-so the government is trying to encourage immagrants to fill these positions, but they arent able to meet various requirements (language, social knowledge etc)
-all of this is further stimulated by the fact that people who are interested in these types of jobs, with related degrees are moving out of BC, to ontario and alberta.

so there are too many hipsters in this province and not enough squares....whats going to happen? and how will this effect the evolution of british columbian culture?

I don't really see the relevance of this post to this forum, but hey, what the heck. 


So you're saying there's alot of social infastructure jobs available?  I think I might be a great candidate to fill one of those positions. 


To answer your question of how will this affect the evolution of B.C., well I'm guessing that the "seasonal" job market that you speak of will become saturated and people will be forced back into the social infastructure jobs out of necessity. 

Either that or all hell will break loose.    Trash won't be picked up, roads will decay, ambulances will be empty, but hell, at least the ski resorts will be booming. :grin:
