MUN economist predicting the future

Memorial University economist and the province’s go-to-guy for predictions and analysis, Dr. Wade Locke, is at it again. Locke says that in the next 10 years the province will be facing a significant labour shortage due to the lack of skilled workers, and that will drive wages up. That shortage, Locke says, will have a trickle down effect and will impact municipalities. Locke is speaking in advance of the Newfoundland and Labrador Employers’ Council annual conference, which is taking place next week.
