The Grim Truth: Unemployment in London

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

By Sarolta Saskiw

Glenn Yates, 35, is among several Ford plant employees that are still looking for work 5 months after the plant closed. Yates has decided to go back to university, because he is unable to find a good paying job in London and feels that  a degree will give him  a competitive edge when applying for jobs in the future.

Meanwhile, Yates, like many unemployed Londoners, will have to fight to sustain a comfortable life for his family, which includes two young children.

Look for Saskiw’s video feature, soon to come to Western Journalism.
