B.C.’s advanced education minister has warned post-secondary schools in the province to keep an eye open for the adult entertainment industry.
Naomi Yamamoto says she’s concerned recruiters may target students on university and college campuses in their hunt for new employees.
The minister has sent a letter to B.C. institutions outlining her fears that recruiters will attempt to set up booths at post-secondary job fairs this fall.
She says her information comes after a series of news stories out of Windsor, Ont., about the trend.
The government notes that during the spring, the sex industry suggested it would recruit near Vancouver public schools.
At the time, school board officials put out the message that public educational facilities are not an appropriate venue to recruit adult entertainment industry workers.
