Business groups in Canada has expressed concerns over the growing need to fill gaps in the labor force, Inquirer reported.
According to Canada’s statistical agency, unemployment rates fell from 0.1 percent in October, to an almost record-breaking 5.8 percent.
Industries most affected are services, construction, agricultural, and oil and gas sectors. Thus, putting heavier pressure on wages.
On the other hand, policymakers are divided, with Quebec Premier Francois Legault promising to cut on immigration in what one might think is a measure to ensure that jobs are reserved to Canadians.
However, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau commented that since it is mostly entrepreneurs and businesses that took the most hit, he doubts that this is the best time to cut down on immigration.
