    21% of young people age 15 to 25 can't compete in a global economy. The province isn't testing young people in grades 9 and grades 12 for reading ability and reading comprehension, yet these students are graduating and then enter low paying jobs. The province should be paying compensation to these young people. Then everybody succeeds.
