Working class Americans get jobs — Canadians get a carbon tax

Rebel Staff

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I looked at a U.S. jobs numbers report that just came out, and then compared that to what has happened in Canada on the economic front.

Over 195,000 new jobs were created in America, the unemployment rate is 3.8 per cent and even better, average hourly earnings in March were 3.2 per cent higher than a year earlier.

So, not only is there a record number of Americans working, but they’re all getting raises — that are double the rate of inflation.

Meanwhile, several Canadian car factories have shut down in recent months, and according to the CBC, “Canada lost 7,200 jobs in March, ending 6-month string of gains.”

But hey, there were 9,600 new jobs last month in “public administration”! Government workers are just fine.

If you were going to build a factory somewhere, or invest in a company somewhere, which side of the Canada-U.S. border would you choose?
