Will there ever be a week that goes by that the Alberta NDP don’t have to make announcements and back track on one of their failed policies?
One job creation program that seems to have worked for the NDP is the increase in public sector employment. Just think of the billions of dollars tax payers will owe for pensions and contracts for years to come and think of all of the unemployed people in Edmonton and area that suffer without Employment Insurance extensions because the numbers don’t tell the real story behind employment numbers being stable in those regions. They don’t tell the story that Rachel Notley and her caucus bloated the public sector so heavily that it cushioned unemployment statistics.
The NDP have now promised $10M to promote start-ups and create new jobs, but they clearly haven’t factored in those small businesses that are suffering as a result of the decline in the oil patch. After all, those businesses count on oilfield workers to keep them afloat and many have had to shut down as a result of the downturn.
How will incentives to start a business create even one job, when so many are already closing?
It sounds like Deron Bilous announced another policy that will most certainly fail, once again.
