Outdatedism – Canada’s newest prejudice: Jason Kenney defends online job bank despite outdated postings

Godddammit! The Outdated Deserve Jobs Too!

Employment Minister Jason Kenney says the government is making improvements to its online job bank amid revelations that hundreds of employment positions on the site have long since been filled.

Kenney is under fire about the job bank, a critical component of the federal government’s controversial temporary foreign worker program.

Employers are required to post ads seeking Canadian workers for four weeks before they apply to hire temporary foreign workers.

The government also relies in part on job bank data to determine what regions of the country are clamouring for labour.
