That's kind of my point. Even if they come home to a slightly lesser paying job, it will all probably work out to much the same with the benefit of being home with the family.

I don't know when those charts were made. I do know it's been on the news and in our papers for weeks now. I'm sure Kreskin and Taxslave have heard the same news as I have.

Anyway, coming out'a their ****'s in Halifax, and more to be
had in Vancouver through the same agreement. Again, this will leave a
real labour/skilled trades shortage in Alberta & Saskatchewan. This will
be a real crunch out here, and bodies will be needed in a real hurry.

Anyone have any idea's as to where more people for the Saskatchewan
& Alberta job markets can come from? Me....I can't work anymore than
I already am, as if I stated just how many hours a month I put in already,
it would sound like fiction. I currently work about 6 weeks a month, and
still take my weekends & stat-holidays off most of the time so I don't burn
out. I can't work any more than I already do.

Saskatchewan currently has the lowest unemployment rate in Canada.

Saskatchewan continues to lead nation with lowest unemployment rate (external - login to view)

I'm still confused that it's as high (the unemployment rate) as it is in this
province also. There is work here for others that's either skilled or willing
on top of those already out here that aren't working for whatever reasons.

We don't whine about the Maritimers that come here. We whine about the Maritimers that stay home and whine because they don't have jobs.
