Education Minister sends out warning about adult industry
Advanced Education Minister Naomi Yamamoto is warning colleges and universities that the adult entertainment industry may begin focusing its efforts on recruiting students in a more visible way than it has done in the past.
In a letter sent yesterday to B.C. colleges and universities, Yamamoto advised that based on news stories out of Windsor, Ontario, recruiters for the adult entertainment industry may try to attend post-secondary job fairs this fall in jurisdictions across Canada.
This past spring, the industry suggested it would recruit on or near Vancouver public schools, which prompted a response from school board officials who felt strongly that public educational facilities are not the place to recruit workers for these industries.
The B.C. government supported that response for the K-12 school system, and believes the same position is warranted for our public post-secondary institutions.
