If you are between the ages of 45 and 55 or you know someone in that age bracket, you've had the conversation.  Those people, coming out of high school and, in some cases, university, had a lot of trouble finding a good job.  There weren't many out there.  My, how our world has changed.

You can find dozens of available local jobs on DiscoverMooseJaw.com right now.  Some are entry level positions but others are for trained professionals.

And, today, we're hearing about a shortage of professionals in two key areas.  The Royal Canadian Air Force needs people.  We need pilots, we need technicians and mechanics.  In fact, I see they need a full time lifeguard out at 15 Wing - Moose Jaw right now.

We are also learning about a shortage of French teachers in Saskatchewan and across the country.  Enrollment in French immersion programs is up by 26% in the past 4 years.  We can't deliver the programming to all enrolled because we don't have enough people to teach them.

So, mama, don't let your babies grow up to be cowboys.  Don't let 'em pick guitars and drive them old trucks - let 'em be French teachers and pilots and such.
