Join us in welcoming our next guest in our growing interview series: Erin Goetz!
Here is a quick Q&A regarding similar topics we discuss in the full interview.
Hamilton Youth Workforce
"From your organizations stand point, can you identify barriers for employers when hiring youth?"
"From working at the Xperience Annex I find that youth in Hamilton would benefit from government subsidy programs that support business in hiring our youth. Another important point is to offer positions that pay a living wage. Employers need to see the value in hiring youth.
Youth voices add a different and valuable perspective to the workplace. As an example, we have our youth engagers participate in all of our team meetings and see them as full members of our team. The input that they provide is valued on the same level as any other member of our team. We try to be as inclusive as possible."
