Does New Brunswick Have A Work Ethic Problem?

We all know that New Brunswick has an employment problem--but does it also have a problem with its work ethic? 

That was the question posed to Premier David Alward, who responded it's not for him to say whether there's a work ethic problem. All he knows is that he meets New Brunswickers every day, and they want jobs.

That being said, the province has seen unfilled jobs in a number of sectors including Tourism and Hospitality, which can get short shrift as people leave for better paying jobs out West. 

But according to the Premier, we're seeing that trend of unfilled positions and empty classrooms turning around.
