Ontarians Not Fooled by April?s Job Figures
PC Economic Development Critic says manufacturing sector still in sharp decline
?There is no good news for Ontarians when good-paying manufacturing jobs are replaced with those paying minimum wage. The creation of minimum wage jobs does nothing to generate tax dollars or economic growth, both of which are sadly lacking in Dalton McGuinty?s Ontario,? Shurman said.
?This week the Premier said that reality is our friend. When the stark reality is that Ontario?s unemployment rate remains stuck at 8.8% and the manufacturing sector continues to shed precious jobs, it?s time Dalton McGuinty started looking for some new companions,? stated Peter Shurman.
