A new study by the Angus Reid Institute says hotels and restaurants are struggling to fill jobs across Canada as Generation Zers and Millennials leave the hospitality sector.
“These data show an 18 per cent decline in the number of workers in the service sector over the last two and a half years,” the study notes. “This includes a 22 per cent decline among 18- to 24-year-olds and a drop of 15 per cent among 25- to 34-year-olds.”
The 18-to-24-year-old group is a part of Generation Z. The 25-to-34-year-olds are part of the group considered to be Millennials.
