Over the last 40 years the top 1 percent of wage earners have reaped all the rewards. That's been the extent of the success. That doesn't indicate any great creation of jobs. Certainly not jobs worth having. Everyone else has seen their earning power either in gradual decline, or a steep decline. Seriously - if I hear Harper trot out the idea that corporations need handouts so that we can all benefit from the "stable" economy, I might have to consider moving to Germany.
Seriously I make one small quote from Churchill and this is what happens. LX, if it is more profitable for a company to operate outside of Canada it will move, jobs gone, we have to play by the rules that are in place, argue those rules all you want but we exist in a global economy and must compete in it. Forget about the 1% of the rich, who cares it doesn't matter. I do take issue with "people seeing their earning power decline", I would love to see some support of that statement.
Again with the "Harper" has he been in power for 40 years, is it all his fault?
