Many employers are having a struggle finding, let alone retaining young people to start a job & stick with it as a start on a career path & Gary Bikman, MLA explains this frustration.
"Some young people are not prepared to work at the entry level. XXX (Thirty) to XL (40) percent of people who apply for a job don't show up for an interview, & others don't show up after being hired."
