CANADA’s Immigration Minister thinks Alberta’s unemployment rate should be higher, our wages lower and our job fair line-ups longer.
John McCallum didn’t exactly say that, but what he did say will result in those economic conditions for (the province of) Alberta. After a closed door meeting with Alberta business people, McCallum said:
“There’s a strong consensus that they’re in favour of more immigrants, not less immigrants, notwithstanding the state of the economy”
Translation: Businesses want cheaper labour.
There are 77,000 (Unemployed) Albertans on employment insurance – some have already run out. (The Canadian province of ) Alberta’s unemployment rate is at 8.6% … higher than the national average, and up a percentage point from the month before. Alberta’s youth unemployment rate is at 14.8% up from 11.4% the year before.
These numbers are real people in OUR communities. They should not be duking it out for the few available jobs … with a sudden influx of economic (foreign) migrants. […] Isn’t it a Canadian Minister’s job to put those Canadians first? >>to FULL article.
