Helping the repatriation cause

A lot of talk this election about bringing people back to New Brunswick.

Here’s something that should help.

Canadian workers dread returning to the job after Labour Day when summer is over and workplaces take on a different feel and notable perception of stress.

A poll conducted by Decima Research for the Workopolis jobs website has found that 41% of all employees surveyed report feeling a significant difference in the atmosphere of their workplace following the last long weekend of summer.

Feelings of dread and anxiety are highest among younger workers (16% of 18 to 24-year-olds) and workers in Atlantic Canada (19%), the poll found.

Great. One in five Atlantic Canadians dreads going to work.

Come back to New Brunswick. Be underpaid and dread going to work.
