Jason Kenney and the Foreign Worker's Farce
Well I see that Jason Kenney has been reduced to playing King Canute.
Frantically trying to hold back the rising tide of foreign workers flooding into Canada.
Trying to make it look like he's The Solution, not the guy who created the problem.
In the next few weeks, the government will try to painkill away its worst policy migraine. Sources say Employment Minister Jason Kenney will unleash a renamed temporary foreign workers program with two conflicting objectives.
He'll aim to preserve the part of the program which red-carpets skilled technical or executive talent which cannot be easily found in Canada. And he will lay down a bed of nails to discourage unskilled workers from entering Canada as indentured servants.
But of course it won't work. There are just too many foreign workers in Canada.Too many Canadian businesses are addicted to them....
Kenney created the monster, and now it's after him. Because now it doesn't just want cheap labour, it wants SLAVES.
The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal has ruled the operators of a tree-planting business discriminated against African workers and has ordered the employer to pay more than $600,000 in damages. Tribunal member Norman Trerise says in his 114-page ruling that the owners of Khaira Enterprises Ltd. taunted and harassed the 55 workers with racial slurs and had a blatant disregard for employment standards.
The tree planters worked in a camp in Golden, in southeast B.C., in 2010, until it was shut down by the provincial Ministry of Forests, when the planters complained to ministry staff that they hadn’t had anything to eat for two days.
Because that's how low we have fallen.
And Kenney's plan to allow skilled workers to continue to flood into Canada won't work either. Not after his claims that there is a skills shortage in this country were shown to be fraudulent.
It took nine months of detective work by economists, journalists, social media sleuths and investigators at the Parliamentary Budget Office to solve the mystery of Canada’s missing job vacancies. Last week Auditor General Mike Ferguson made it official: The federal government was using unreliable statistics to support its claim that Canada had plenty of jobs but no workers with the skills to fill them.
Because as you know Kenney and his Con clowns were getting their numbers from Kijiji...
And the sad truth is there are just not enough jobs, and too many permanently unemployed.
Almost four out of 10 Canadians who don't have a job have completely given up hope of ever finding one, a new survey suggests.
In the poll, which saw people respond to questions online over a week in April, more than a third responded they hadn't had a job interview in over a month. A full 13 per cent of respondents said they hadn't had a job interview since 2012 or before — well over a calendar year ago.
Too many Canadians looking for jobs the Cons never bothered to create, except in their beloved Alberta.
Too many slowly losing hope...
I know, I see it in the eyes of too many of my friends and other young Canadians, and it makes me so angry. Because I see what the Cons and our grotesque business class are trying to do them. Humiliate them, break them, make them feel helpless, so they too can be SLAVES.
And the good news? When I tell them not to get sad, get even. When I tell them how the Cons are giving their jobs to foreigners while they suffer. When I tell them how the Cons are torching the planet and their future, I see their eyes light up.
And I know that one day their anger will shake this country to its foundations.
And it will help destroy the Cons in the next election.
For NOTHING will hold back that rising tide.
And it will drown them ALL...
