Canadian Economy Lost 88,100 Full-Time Jobs In August

A massive loss of full-time jobs raises concerns about our so-called “growth”.

From the outside, the August jobs report doesn’t seem too bad. There was a net increase of 22,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate fell to 6.2%.

However, a closer look reveals a big concern.

    Don’t worry, all the jobs will come back once we enshrine transgender rights in the new NAFTA.

    Its those dog-gone small business rip off artists.
    Our Loverment has GOT to go all ‘Greeknam Style’ on these almost 100% rich man tax shelter “laugh all the way to their offshore bank” small businesses.
    First of all, these small businesses were built by all of us, not by the sweat and hard work of their so called owners.
    No, our countries wellbeing depends on crushing these mostly white male owned businesses, so sure THEY lost ONLY 88,100 employment spots, but hey the real news is that with proper CCCP new age mat-matix the truth is shown that 22,000 minimum wage real growth jobs were created where they will benefit the Loverment the most, right in our pocket books.

      If Trudeau is successful the baby boomer’s retirement money will be worth as much as those bolivars.

      • Cat-astrophe

        Exactly. Why not “steer” us boomers towards a nice clean Dr. Assisted end instead.
        Oops, forgot, they are already….

          You deserve it as you don’t work anymore and you had “sprinkled” the money into retirement.

          btw. ….start paying for doctor’s visits at market value or you will have to see demoralized, frustrated, not appreciated physician…….in three years.

    Don’t worry, Wynne’s new Cannabis Control Council of Politicians will easily be able to pick up the slack, and employ 22,000 new Ontarians.

      I presume that they’ll offer their employees and families a discount on their fine product.

    Justin Trudope is about to hit the reality of the Laffer curve hard. Declining tax base, skyrocketing taxes means….tada…fewer taxes collected, and an underground economy and thriving black market.
