Segment 5: Bullies and Scams

This segment is divided in to two parts.

The first part talks about the scam of the week.

In this week's scam Donna informs us on the "Your Missing Pet Scam".

This type of scam usually comes through a phone call where you are asked to go to an unfamiliar place since you are informed that your pet is missing.

If indeed your pet is missing then that is okay, however if its false you need to call the cops. In either case Donna informs us that you should call the cops before you go to that unfamiliar place.

In the second part Donna talks to us about people who gang up on you. This usually takes place in high school, and happens amongst kids in school.

Donna informs her audience that parents should be telling there children about this situation, or at least making them aware of this situation because this is considered as bullying.

Episode #38 Bonus Article: 12 Things The National Household Survey Told Us

1.) We love driving our cars to work. In 2011, almost 93 per cent of people in the workforce drove to work and most drove by themselves.

2.) Virtue has a price. The average commute time if you took public transit was 43 minutes in 2011. If you drove, it was 25 minutes.

3.) English dominates Canadian workplaces, with 85 per cent of the population using the language at work, compared to just 25 per cent who say they use French.

4.) Chinese languages are the most commonly used languages in the workplace after English and French.

5.) We are increasingly delaying retirement. In 2011, 18.7 per cent of the working population was over age 55, up from 11.7 per cent in 2001.

6.) We move for work. Half a million workers lived in a different province or territory in 2011 compared to 2006. Top destinations: Northwest Territories and Alberta.

7.) Possessing a postsecondary education increases Canadians' chances of being employed. But there's no obvious employment benefit to a graduate degree.

8.) Are you a doctor, dentist, veterinarian or optometrist? Congratulations, you are most likely to have a job.

9.) We love to shop and we work to sell. The top employment category for both men and women is the retail trade.

10.) Men continue to dominate the trades, holding 80 per cent of all apprentice certificates.

11.) You haven't come that far, baby. The top labour occupations for women are retail sales, administrative assistant, nurse and cashier.

12.) We're "foodies" not "fixers." Canadians ages 25 to 34 are far more likely to have trained to be a cook than an auto mechanic.
