    Convergys was in Alberta. They moved from Alberta because of the labour laws and the minimum wage is higher. They will not come back. They left Edmonton and went to Red Deer, left Red Deer because of management problems and complaints. They went east and now are closing centers there too. No surprise.

    I just returned from vacation in Alberta and I affected by the cutbacks at Michelin Tire. I really hate to say it but if you can relocate to Alberta the jobs, growth and opportunities would astound you. All I could see was how my quality of life would improve by relocating . Its not for everyone but it is an option.
