I am a new immigrant in computer science. I have 7 years of experiences in a US company. Currently it is so difficult to find a job in Canada, especially for the computer engineers.
Recently I read two news from the goverment of Canada. The first one is that the work hours per week was raised to 60 hour from previous 48 hours, although it is volunteer for the employee. The second is that the jobless rate was rised from 7.0% to 7.2%.
The goverment can not control the unemployment rate directly, but they can controll the work hours, according to the idea of most employees(should be) instead of employers. Then why they still need to increase the working hours? If they increase the work hours to 80 hours per week instead of 60, then the employers could only keep half of current workers, because one person could be used as two if the prevous regular working hours were 40 hours. I believe change the work hours to 60 hours will worsen the job market, it is easy to understand. If I were a boss, I'd rather let my existed worker work for more time rather than recruiting new ones.
One of my friend is a system administrator in a company. He told me in fact his postion need two peoples, but now he work 10 hours a days, 6 days a week, so a vacancy dispeared like this way, that is all what some politico did beside raise their salary by 25% during this economy recession which has lasted more than one and half year.
I don't know how to express my feelings to the goverment, so I write you this letter. Can you help me forward it to the officers who are related to this topic and could help?
Thanks and best regards,
A new immigrant＜本文发表于: 相约加拿大:枫下论坛 www.rolia.net/f ＞
