Who wrote that headline, some-under-assistant from the Tory propaganda division of the Conservative party?
It’s been shown time and again that doing things like raising taxes, raising the minimum wage, etc. do not in fact unemployment, layoffs, or cause corporate types to run away, screaming…it’s way too late for that. Those corporate greed-mongers who would leave have, um, already left..that’s what all those factories in the 3rd World producing our goods are for…oh, wait…. Now all those factories are going under or slowing down, at best, because we are no longer consuming at the same rate we used to because, surprise surprise, there are fewer jobs for us now that all these corporate types have decided to operate offshore..
We need decent paying jobs here, with benefits, to support ourselves and our families, and then we can will have discretionary income to spend on goods and services..see how that works?
I promised myself that I wasn’t gonna write about the election, people are already sick to death of reading what is spewed in the MSmedia, but I couldn’t let this particular story go by without some sort of response…vote NDP.
