By the numbers

Last week Human Resources and Social Development Minister Monte Solberg gave a speech that touched on demographics issues. It is well documented that as baby-boomers retire there are fewer workers available to take thier place. A paragraph from a Toronto Star article highlights the problem.

Solberg recently told the Empire Club in Toronto that between 1956 and 2006 the country’s labour force increased nearly 200 per cent, but over the next 50 years it is expected to increase by just 11 per cent.
