Bank of Canada governor tells unemployed young people to work for free →
Cripes, and I thought this this Beaverton article was supposed to be a parody.
From Stephen Poloz’s prepared speech:
“If your parents are letting you live in the basement, you might as well go out and do something for free to put the experience on your CV.”
While Poloz lives up the stereotype of the out-of-touch baby boomer, I feel compelled to point out that the young people interviewed in the World Report version of this story (skip to 6:40) live up to the baby boomer’s stereotype of the unemployed twenty-something. A person with a photography degree and an aspiring yoga instructor? Are we sure this whole thing wasn’t written by This Is That?
