B.C. Labour Market Outlook, 2010 - 2020
Preface The Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation is pleased to present the second edition of the B.C. Labour Market Outlook in partnership with BC Stats and the Ministry of Finance. This edition provides labour market demand and supply forecasts for B.C. and its regions from 2010 to 2020, based on output from the B.C. Labour Market Scenario Model.

Over one million job openings are expected in B.C. from 2010 to 2020

The B.C. Labour Market Scenario Model is a tool that helps us understand the likely future of regional and provincial labour markets. Developed by the Province in 2009, the information the Model provides helps citizens, employers and government to accurately forecast future demand and supply for a range of occupations. The Outlook seeks to identify significant trends for the labour market of the future that can inform decisionmaking, based on statistical data, assumptions, and consultation with industry and other stakeholders. However, within particular occupations and regions there may be unique conditions that are not captured in this analysis. Assumptions and conditions may also change over time. Thus, despite best efforts, actual conditions may differ from those presented in the B.C. Labour Market Outlook.

forecasting economic growth.1 These sources suggest that the B.C. economy is expected to grow at close to historical rates in the medium term (2013 to 2015). However, uncertain global economic conditions continue to pose substantial downside risks to…...

The Labour Market

...The Labour Market The labour force is the sum of those either working or looking for work. Those who are neither in the labour force nor looking for a job are known to be out of the labour force. The participation rate is defined as the ratio of the labour force to the population in working age. The unemployment rate is calculated by dividing the unemployed with the labour force (unemployed and employed). The average unemployment rate also hides large differences among different groups of workers within the same country. The most notable one is the higher incidence of unemployment among young workers. To get a sense of what a given unemployment rate implies for individual workers, consider the following analogy. Take an airport full of passengers. It may be crowded because many planes are coming and going, and many passengers are quickly moving in and out of the airport. Or it may be crowded because of bad weather delaying the flights and passengers are stuck, waiting for the weather to improve. The number of passengers in the airport will be high in both cases, but their plights are quite different. Passengers in the second scenario are likely to be much less happy. In the same way, a given unemployment rate may reflect two very different realities. It may reflect an active labour market, with many separations and many hires, and so with many workers entering and exiting unemployment; or it may reflect a sclerotic labour market, with few separations, few hires and a......

Factor Markets: with Emphasis on the Labour Market

...Chapter 27 – Factor Markets: With Emphasis on the Labour Market Factor Markets Demand for a Factor All firms in all market structures purchase factors to make products to sell. E.g. farmers buy tractors and fertilizer to produce crops to sell. The demand for factors = derived demand (demand that is the result of some other demand). It is derived from and directly related to the demand for the product that the resources go to produce. If the demand for the product rises, so does demand for the factors that go into the making of the product and vice versa. E.g. if the demand for computers rises, so does the demand for skilled computer workers. When demand for a seller’s product rises, the seller needs to decide how much more of a factor to buy. Marginal revenue product and marginal factor cost are relevant to this decision. Marginal Revenue Product The additional revenue generated by employing an additional factor unit, such as one more unit of labour. E.g. Firm employs one more unit of a factor and total revenue rises by $20, hence MRP of the factor equals $20. MRP can be calculated in two ways: MRP = △TR/ △Quantity of the factor Or MRP = MR x MPP Where TR = total revenue, MR = marginal revenue, and MPP = marginal physical product. The MRP Curve Is the Firm’s Factor Demand Curve MRP curve is downward sloping (Exhibit 2). Why? MRP can be calculated as MRP = MR x MPP and with regard to MPP, the marginal physical product of a factor, and, according to the law of...

Irish Labour Markets

...Introduction In Ireland during the 1990s the labour market started to grow exponentially and between the late 1980s and 2002 total employment in Ireland grew by more than 65%, the majority of which was in non-agriculture employment which accounted for more than 78% of the total employment. During these times the unemployment rate was below 4%, there was little or no long term unemployment, which was more in line with the EU average. The issues surrounding mass emigration and the decline of the population had reversed and a surge in immigration and a rise in the population; one of the fastest growing populations in the EU. This was a time of boom for Ireland, caused mainly by the buoyancy of the global economy and the expansion of the US economy. This was prevalent with the amount of foreign direct investment that was coming from the US. A major period of economic expansion caused an increase in the construction industry. At the start of 2008, the construction industry accounted for 25% of Irish GDP and 20% of Irish jobs. At this time, the Irish government was in a false budgetary position where it ran significant exchequer surpluses. As a result, the then Fianna Fail government, which was in power at the time began a process of cutting taxes, increasing tax incentives for developers to build homes, increased the size of the public sector including increasing the public sector wage through a benchmarking processes that was deeply flawed and even encouraged people to......

Discrimination in Labour Market

...the labor market University of Minho, Braga, Portugal June 2012 SUMMARY This paper analyzes three types of discrimination (age, sexual orientation, gender and race) in the labor market in the different countries all over the world. The results show that the skin color discrimination is the most widespread type of discrimination followed by the sexual orientation discrimination. Unexpected result was about gender discrimination which is the least likely in the EU but the evidence indicates that sex discrimination remains a possible explanation of the unexplained gender pay gap between men and women. Key words: labor market, discrimination, women, skin color, sexual orientation. JEL: J71 Introduction It’s all about the money, isn’t it nowadays? We need to buy our food, pay our bills and educate our children. Money is the “necessity bad” today. But even in our modern, global, without barriers world, world in which they teach us that everything is possible, there is still big inequity. The chance for some people to achieve job and to feed their families is much lower than to the others. Even nowadays not only dream and ambitions are enough. When it comes for having a job and building career there is also comes the problem with discrimination in the labor market. This topic is one of the most difficult for researches and usually is hard to be proved that this still exists nowadays. In the following paper we will discuss discrimination in the labor market in......

Labour Market Segmentation Theories

...Uni Name | Youth Labour Segmented Market Theories | Essay | | Client Name | @XXXXXXXX | | Contents Introduction 2 Segmentation of the Labour Market 3 Theories about Segmented Labour Markets 3 The Dual Labour Market Theory 6 Summary 9 References 10 Introduction The behaviour and life experiences of young people have vastly evolved throughout the past few decades. These changes impact on their relationships between family and friends, their experience of the job market, as well as the educational system and of course, their ability to establish themselves as an individual. According to Furlong and Cartmel (1997), many of these changes are due to the structural changes in the job/labour market. Further, the social organisation of taking different career paths in life has been replaced with more discrete variation (Haaland, 1991). Making that shift from school life to working life tend to be less determined, more flexible, and above all daunting (Ellingsæter, 1995). Beck (1997) and Giddens (1991) claim that the terms “individualisation” and “risk” are often associated with younger people’s behaviour and conditions within a labour society. Individualisation denotes the traditional social groups or segments that are of importance like gender, ethnicity and class are branded as being fragmented and somewhat less important (Pollock, 1997). Though, Furlong and Cartmel (1997) argue that these social structures are of importance and......

Inequalities for Women in the Labour Market

...that allow women to take on so much are in fact the same factors that hold them back from any advancement within the labour market. According to Krahn, Lowe and Hughes, authors of Work, Industry and Canadian Society (2008), women find themselves seeking refuge in employment facilities with “little economic security and little opportunity for advancement; furthermore the work is often unpleasant, boring and sometimes physically taxing” (p.187). It often forces the female population to strictly seek jobs in the service sector assigned to them based on gender alone. Women have been stereotyped into being domesticated labourers due to the double standard. Women in Canada also face the problem of earning significantly less than their male counterparts. Editors of Dividing the Domestic: men, women, and household work in cross-national perspective, Treas and Drobnic (2010) claim, “despite the increasing number of women in the labor market, women still have fewer managerial positions and earn less income than men” (p.44). Joan Williams author of Beyond The Maternal Wall: Relief For Family Caregivers Who Are Discriminated Against On The Job (2003) refers to this theory as “the glass ceiling”. The male dominancy within the labour market provides major success and higher earnings for men. Women however, are not taken seriously in highly recognized jobs within the labour industry as their main priority is within the domestic dwelling and their child rearing responsibilities......

Child Labour in British Literature

...Child labour in British Literature Child labour is very popular topic and motif in British Literature. Many famous authors base their novels on this term. Industrialisation led to a dramatic increase in child labour. Children were working in factories and mines what was very exhausted and dangerous. Child labour was not an invention of the Industrial Revolution. Poor children have always started work as soon as their parents could find employment for them. But in much of pre-industrial Britain, there simply was not very much work available for children. This changed with industrialisation. The new factories and mines were hungry for workers and required the execution of simple tasks that could easily be performed by children. The result was a surge in child labour – presenting a new kind of problem that Victorian society had to tackle. Research has shown that the average age at which children started work in early 19th- century Britain was 10 years old, but that this varied widely between regions. In industrial areas, children started work on average at eight and a half years old. Most of these young workers entered the factories as piecers, standing at the spinning machines repairing breaks in the thread. A few started as scavengers, crawling beneath the machinery to clear it of dirt, dust or anything else that might disturb the mechanism. In the mines, children usually started by minding the trap doors, picking out coals at the pit mouth, or......

British Columbia Nicu Bed Allocation Case Analysis

...British Columbia NICU Bed Allocation Case Analysis Background: The executive director of BC’s Neonatal Services Program (BCNSP) and the officials of BC’s Ministry of Health Services (MHS) have been trying to decide whether or not to increase the neonatal ICU bed capacity in the province. This was due to a report in 2007 – 2008 that indicated that the province sent 98 expectant mothers and newborns to the US for treatment. This decision needed to be made also due to pressure coming from the media. For example it was an article by the Globe and Mail that was discussing the need for more beds and an actual national birthing plan. This is when the director was asked to suggest bed allocations among over areas of improvements for the situation. Issues: It states in the case itself that this is an issue because health care costs in BC were rising and the provincial government was pressuring them to avoid increasing spending. At the same time it’s also very expensive to send these mothers and newborns all the way to the US to get treatment. Not only is this costly but sending these patients over also places emotional stress on families. Some other issues could be projected as risks that involve scope and functionality, including the budget, schedule for this decision n and operations associated. If this decision isn’t carried out properly or isn’t performed optimally, it’ll result in less efficient operations, user dissatisfaction and overall lower functionality. There’s......

Features of the Labour Market

...The labour market is a market by which workers compete in order to obtain employment, it is the province of the world by which commodities are bought and sold. It is a place where employees and workers share interaction; it is the market that employers strive to be the best and to provide the best jobs. In addition, according to the Economic Times "without competition there would be no market” (2010), therefore it is crucial that there is economic movement in the market. There will be three features of the labour market discussed within this assignment in order to highlight the inequalities. It aims discuss the inequalities amongst the gender factor, the concept of child labour and the links these factors have with unemployment. The argument which explains the gender inequalities within the labour market originates from the 1970s. However, it is fair to state that a lot has changed within society in particular the labour force since then. It is difficult to identify the particular factor that clarifies such segregation but many conclude on the basis of pay discrimination. Other factors to explain gender segregation could relate to comparative biological advantages, underinvestment in human capital, differential income role and entry barriers....(Bettio and Verashchagina (2009) Examples of gender inequality within the work place are common amongst contemporary society and this is because there are continued obvious biases in the labour market. There are hidden practices......

Bond Market Outlook

...Overall Bond Market Outlook: The bond market generated a strong performance in 2011, with long-term U.S. Treasury bonds realizing double-digit returns. In general, higher-quality bonds outperformed riskier bonds as investors sought safe harbor in volatile markets. During the second half of 2011, both investment-grade and high-yield bonds have experienced rising yields, and underperformance relative to U.S. Treasuries, due to economic volatility in Europe. At the same time, however, the underlying fundamentals of U.S. companies continue to improve: earnings are strong, balance sheets are robust, and many companies are continuing to find room to reduce costs. As a result, there exists room for improvement in both asset classes this year should the economic climate in Europe improve. This year, bond market returns likely will remain stable since interest rates are at near historic low levels. Thus, I expect interest rates to remain relatively near historic lows. Further, I expect the Federal Reserve to keep short-term interest rates near zero in 2012. A recent consumer price index report indicated that overall inflation had decreased to 3.0% while the core inflation rate had slipped to 2%. The Fed’s “Operation Twist”, aimed at holding down long-term rates, is not expected to be completed until the middle of next year. Last year, the total return for the Barclays Aggregate Bond Index was 7.8%, led by strong gains in U.S. Treasuries. Last year’s common theme was the......
