We need a re-think. It has never been more financially attractive to replace workers with technology and Government is motivated to increase the cost of labour? It is obviously attracted to encouraging workers to be replaced & Mike has the story.
When Government hikes taxes it's always a negative for growth and job creation, especially when they are raised on business. The NDP Government just raised taxes 5.5 Billion with 3/4's aimed at business so... there will simply be less money to spend on hiring. Wait, it gets worse….
The BC Government wants to trash the most important industry in the province in the name of affordability. An industry that has a huge workforce. Michael has the numbers and makes the case that Gov't should leave real estate alone.
What happens when Gov't owns the media? The latest Federal Budget will contain subsidies for daily newspapers. On top of money already given to magazines, daily papers plus owning the CBC. Will media be critical now?
