Being employed greatly affects a person’s quality of life because employment determines income. Looking into the topic of youth employment is very interesting because it involves young people’s introduction to the job market. I plan to explore the different employment barriers that affect Calgary’s youth while understanding that each journey is different.
I find it interesting that youth are having such a hard time finding employment despite having a high school diploma or higher education. Analyzing the barriers and understanding why youth are struggling is a step towards finding solutions to this problem.
