Jason Kenney and the Foreign Workers Turd Blossom
Oh dear. I'm afraid I have some shocking Con fashion news to report today.
It seems that Jason Kenney has been forced to replace his fine feathery foreign workers pimp hat, with a very ugly, but suitably Con blue, dunce cap.
Because not only has he blown another hole in his fraudulent claim that the only reason he flooded the country with foreign workers was because there is a serious labour shortage in Canada.
The federal government approved thousands of requests to bring in temporary foreign workers at minimum wage in recent years, a practice that undermines claims from government and employers that there are serious labour shortages and that all efforts have been taken to hire Canadians.
He's totally demolished his desperate plan to try to win brownie points as the guy who can fix the problem, he created.
You know, grow turd blossoms as they call them in Texas...
But unfortunately for him, the Con dunce's proposal to try to fix the problem is so outrageous, one must seriously question his SANITY.
One option would be to set a “wage floor” for temporary foreign workers that would be above the minimum wage and likely above the median prevailing wage. The government’s motivation would be to make the program less appealing for employers in low-wage, low-skilled sectors.
Because it would mean Canadians could end up doing the same lousy jobs as foreign workers but getting paid even LESS than them. !!!
They take us for dummies, they take us for slaves. They would steal our jobs, while they steal our country, and think they can get away with it.
But then of course Kenney is DESPERATE...

The foreign workers scandal is getting a lot of Canadians REALLY angry. He must know that it's an issue that could KILL the Cons in the next election. And destroy his chances of replacing Stephen Harper.
So when the ex-Con Brent Rathgeber asked him why he's discriminating against Canadian workers.
Kenney could only reach for the closest metaphor.
”I’ve heard some bizarre things in this debate,” Kenney responded. “But that takes the cake.
Because now it's CAKE...
And so is this:
If there are shortages in particular areas of the labour market Mr Speaker, employers should be paying more to get Canadians to do the work."
The idea of Kenney as a champion of Canadian workers.
When it's clear that Kenney and those employers have spent the last eight years working together in a giant conspiracy to drive down wages, and turn us all into SLAVES.
And the good news, as I can't help repeating, is that Kenney is now trapped between those angry employers he got addicted to cheap labour, and millions of angry Canadians.
Neither him nor his Great Leader, who would pose as a patriot, will escape this devastating scandal...
We'll make sure of that eh?
Make sure we smear that ghastly cake all over their sellout faces all the way to the next election.
Their shameful betrayal will condemn them.
And their turd blossom will help destroy them...
