WITH THE ARRIVAL of the New Year and Ajax now relegated to the news highlight reels of 2017, I can think of no better time for Kamloops to start getting serious about jobs and meaningful employment.
If you have a skill that is not in demand here and likely to remain that way for the foreseeable future, you have to make a decision. You can complain about the lack of work here, create your own work, travel to where there is work or get a new skill.
I realize for some this may sound harsh but wishing things would change and complaining about it not changing is a recipe for failure.
