    Unemployment rates have risen steadily since the last economic recession. In Windsor, unemployment dropped from 12.9 per cent a year ago to 9.7 per cent. But young professionals face challenges to entering or advancing in the job market due to inexperience, competition and employment shifts.

    The University of Windsor is holding a panel discussion this afternoon titled “Uncertain Times: Precarious Employment and Young Workers” to address the issue.

    The free public discussion is taking place Monday, February 7 at 3 p.m. in Vanier Hall’s Katzman Lounge. The event is hosted by the labour studies program and the Windsor Workers’ Action Centre.

    The panelists include:

    • Zachary Gerard, history student, University of Windsor
    • Wayne Lewchuk, professor of economics and labour studies, McMaster University
    • Kendra Coulter, professor of sociology and anthropology, University of Windsor
    • Alan Hall, professor and director of labour studies, University of Windsor
