B.C. employment picture not pretty

To the Editor,

Re: Employment situation improves, Oct. 18.

The unemployed are not just some numbers off a government computer spreadsheet, but are real people, with real concerns and real problems.

I also must point out that the reality of the help wanted ads are not three pages, but at best half a page.

In all, instead of seeing the light at the end of the too-long economic dark tunnel, I’ll be seeing nothing and the way this economy is going down, not in my lifetime.

If Premier Christy Clark is serious about solving this current economic exigency, then stop with all this political gabfest and get the B.C. economy moving by planting the seeds of economic growth so that the vines of employment can sprout and grow.
