    Been a working Shop Foreman for 2.5 yeas at a new location in the Grater Toronto Area. Need 4 guys + myself to keep up with the work. Will be hiring employee #11,12 & 13 (painter,welder,shipper) in January.

    That's a high turnover rate for how long we've been operational.

    The most difficult person to find is another person like me, welder/machinist/drill press/mechanically inclined/basic electrician. I can train someone to use most any piece of equipment but will not train on an Engine Lathe.

    My best bet is to find a machinist who wants to learn how to weld.


    We do everything: adds on company web page, Indeed, 3rd party, kijiji, craigslist, word of mouth.......it sucks to interview candidates when there is only one to chose from.

    I'm going to hit up some schools this up coming week.

    Possible you are asking for or make it sound like you are asking for high technical skills when you need assemblers tool makers, machine hands and the like where $25 starting is a good wage..Getting engineers and the like where the expectation is higher, at least the go-to target might be higher..... Perhaps show your want add.
    Perhaps you need all engineers ...
    Here in the Us we have school people in Robotics competition.. they are learning a lit of skills..

    But yes I don't think USA people can work in Canada..

    Looks like the $15 minimum wage makes some employers think the is the everybody wage..
    Seems that for $25 there should be people knocking down/on the door for he job...
