"2 Food and Beverage Servers", "2 Housekeeping Room Attendants", "Sales and Administrative Assistant". Those are the jobs that pop up on DiscoverMooseJaw.com in the "Local Jobs" section today.
There are over 5300 job openings posted on SaskJobs.ca today including a number in Moose Jaw and area. And, as you might guess, these aren't all entry level positions. There are close to 500 openings in business, finance and administration. We need engineers and architects, health care workers and people to fill jobs in the trades, transportation and construction.
Here in Saskatchewan, the private sector job vacancy rate is at 2.0% - that adds up to about 6900 jobs.
The experts are telling us this is not a good situation because it's the small and medium sized businesses that feel the pressure and those are the businesses that drive local economies.
