The National Post had an article this morning titled “Government stumped as report shows aboriginal wage gap widening, unemployment growing”

There are a lot of reasons for the wage gap but I’m going to focus on one. And yes, it’s education. I discussed this earlier but I want to go into a bit more detail.
