Notley NDP’s affirmative action review ignores their own employment statistics

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Alberta Government is looking to affirmative action hiring policies to bring gender and racial equality to the Alberta workforce.

Education Minister David Eggen says that since the Alberta Government is the largest employer in the province (a mortifying concept, I know…) he will be undertaking a review of public sector hiring practices, confirming that affirmative action would be one “theme” of his recommendations.

Another David Eggen solution in search of a problem.

Eggen’s mission to bring more women into the workforce doesn’t jive with Alberta reality, and he should really know better.

According the Alberta government’s own statistics and breakdown of unemployment by gender, men are the hardest hit by the NDP made recession.

And that fact holds true across all demographics.

It's almost like bad economic policies hurt breadwinning men more but the NDP are busy solving a problem for women that doesn't exist. Huh...

So how can you set gender quotas when gender is a social construct??

A simple, common sense question I’d like to see the NDP forced to answer…

Affirmative action has worked so well in the past hasn’t it? In the US it has proven such an abject failure it should be a forgotten mistake. Merit based hiring should always be the guiding light. Hire the best for the best result. Would Notley want me to perform FGM on her, or some Imam who is an expert with a rusty knife? The ndp in Alberta are a good parallel of Justin in Ottawa. Just not ready, and quite honestly never will be. Next elections lets vote on merit…the dippers and libs have little of it to offer, lets rid ourselves of the scourge.

All men should identify as female when a applying for work with the AB govt. That’ll mess them up.

William Elder said in part, “Is it just me or is anyone else getting really sick of the juvenile diversionary priorities coming from this failed provincial government?”
It’s not just you, I’m pretty sick of it too. Your comment about boosting the number of IQ’s is spot on!

Before hiring on race basis, the Dips may want to boost the number of IQs in the double digits in their ranks first.

Is it just me or is anyone else getting really sick of the juvenile diversionary priorities coming from this failed provincial government?

My stupid question, “Why is the education minister setting public hiring policy?”

I understand that he can set policy for his department, but why is he setting hiring policy for other ministers? I can maybe understand having to set a policy for the energy ministry since the energy minister is a figment of the imagination, but the other ministers do exist.

Christina Gray is the employment minister. She is an idiot and doesn’t talk. Sometimes she draws the short straw and will stand behind Notley when Rachel is making an announcement but other than that she is invisible like the energy minister McCuaig. You should see the verbal diarrhea coming out of Bilous talking to the citizens of Hanna this past weekend, and he is supposedly one of the better ministers. He hasn’t got a fecken clue what he is doing nor does he have any plan for the coal workers transition to a different occupation, security of pensions, etc. Meanwhile, house prices in town are sinking fast.

I think the switch was flipped long before Orwell wrote his thesis. He just pointed out the obvious. Society is so manipulated and Brainwashed. You have to be constantly focused to be able to see the truth, and it only comes from wisdom, not knowledge.
I beat my head on the wall with my own family. I have little hope remaining for society unless someone leads the righteous in the next couple years

The government being the largest employer in the province is nothing to be proud of, Notley’s nuts are orchestrating their own Animal Farm.

You do not need brains to be NDP.
