(I tried to make it as general as possible, since it is like 1 am in the Vancouver timezone, so I will get like "international people" to answer within the 3 hours.)
Anyways, this is a long time question unanswered since highschool. I'm scared the teachers will think I'm mental. Im quite young (young adult), however, I felt I have been used by the education with promise of "success" bla bla bla to compete against other people on jobs to lower labour prices.
Lets begin with a simple Google search of BC population. (4.631 million in July 1, 2014)
Now lets see this overly optimistic Labour Market Outlook report from the government website from 2015-2025.
Right from page 2 of the PDF you realized that "Employment at record high of over 2.3 million.".
Conclusion: At best, 1/2 of the population is employed. The situation tends to be worse, since the number of people will be higher than 2014.
"By 2025", there will be 93400 job openings."
Conclusion: So currently there are way less job openings out of 2.3 million.
"We are projecting an increase in the labour supply of 1.1 percent over the next ten years"
Conclusion: Doing a simple Google search "BC Population growth rate", you will realize the population is growing by about 1.28%, that means there will be MORE people competing for LESS jobs.
Summary Statistics (CSV)
2016 population: 2356.9 (thousands) 2017 population: 2387.1 (thousands)
So right now you must be thinking at the same boat as me, the labour conditions WORSENED because of higher competition every year. Remember, this is based on ALL industries combined, so a simple argument "But the mining industry is hot" doesn't count, because IN AVERAGE, competition worsens every year.
To make matters worse, (Page 12 pdf), around 78% of careers require diploma or higher, so if you can't fork out the tuition, or if you failed the courses and become in debt with LOANS OR dropped out of college you might as well die, because you serve no purpose. Essentially 78% of the careers are LOCKED from you, and you will be competing with other people at Wendy's.
I have no idea who controls this "system", what government department?? Some special intrest group?? Are they responsible?? Or is it the democratic belief that dying is wrong?? No clue, all I know is that those special intrest groups have so much influence that views like mines are silenced.
(To be honest, the fact that that report made such a garbage situation so optimistic pisses me off even more.)
So thats my point of view in terms of a "worker".
Obviously if you start your own business you don't want your workers to die, because your worker can compete with other workers and lower your salary expectations.
However, I am sure that people in the same field (Classmates/coworkers) want each other to die, because they might obstruct each others opportunity for advancement to a higher pay position or even a Bachelor Degree intake. The reason why they don't do it is because of laws/regulations that prevent them from saying that. Anti-bullying, manslaughter threats etc. etc. or threats by management.
(There can only be 1 system admin for 10 user tech support etc., if one died, then you have 1.11% more chance of a promotion. If you are a tech support, wouldn't you wish at least 5 die??)
Same thing with me, IF you are in the same field as me (Ex: Aerospace), then I would wish you die and you will wish the same to me.
Since there are more workers than what BC can handle, then shouldn't a person die because he/she will be helping (more people**) by reducing competition, food cost etc. etc.
AND MOST IMPORTANTLY,
THE HOUSING MARKET!!
For people who agree with my views.
I am sure of that, 90% of the people in Vancouver thinks their city is overcrowded and would appreciate people like me.
For people who DISAGREE with my views.
Is there some flaws in my logic?? (The job market has too much workers, I should die to lower demand and competition.)
Cough cough housing market, skytrain overcrowding during rush hour. Admit it, you want me to die.
