Business importing foreign workers, with help of our government & Canadian taxpayer dollars
The temporary foreign workers program is a subsidy to business, make no mistake about it!
The program aids business by keeping wage costs down when they would not otherwise be.
If not for the TFWP, wages would have likely increased in order for business to attract workers
Can’t have that. That might make Canadians a bit more prosperous and our government is much more interested in keeping us down!
The Tories incentivized the TFWP buy allowing business to pay workers lower wages then would have to be paid to existing Canadians.
“The Tories changed the rules last year (this would have occured in 2012) to allow employers to pay five to 15 per cent less than the prevailing wage, if they employed Canadians at that lower rate”
“From 2006 to 2012, the program has more than doubled in size, from 140,000 to some 338,000 workers.”No figures from 2012 to date. It seems sensible that the program expanded with the sweetened deal offered up by the Harper government. Minimally we can be certain that more then 340,000 jobs, likely with a bit of a higher wage, would have gone to natural born Canadians, but, they didn’t.
“The program was never intended to displace Canadians,” added Kellie Leitch, the parliamentary secretary to Human Resources and Skills Development (HRSDC) Minister Diane Finley.
Kellie Leitch lies. The program was intended to do exactly that. Displace Canadians.
Canadians born here. Canadian youth, their parents and their grandparents who have paid taxes generationally for multiple decades were the exact target of this program.
But then much negative press arose. And with an election pending Stephen Harper’s government is allegedly ‘revamping’ the program. Here’s a clue to one big change forthcoming!
From the mouth of Stephen Harper- I will highlight his own words. But first let me set the stage!
Stephen Harper has a solution. It’s going to be a blow to Canadians born here and their families.
Stephen Harper’s solution will surely cause more strife in this county. Undoubtedly it is completely INTENTIONAL - Read his words, he is telling us all exactly what his government intends to do ( An aside: I have no doubt the liberals and ndp will take the exact same action- this is an agenda that is bigger then just Canada)
Stephen Harper vows foreign workers will not be a permanent underclass
Ask yourself, how could he guarantee this will not happen- Only one way I can think of
Because of a four-year limit imposed on how long temporary foreign workers can remain in Canada, thousands of workers are now being forced to return to their homelands.
But Harper defended the changes when asked by a Filipino journalist, saying that the government doesn’t want immigrants taking jobs that unemployed Canadians are available to do.
“But just as importantly, we are making sure that when people come to this country to work and to work long term, they have the ability to move towards being permanent citizens of this country,” Harper said.
“This country is not going to have a policy, as long as I’m prime minister, where we will have a permanent underclass of temporary, people who are so-called temporary, but here forever with no rights of citizenship and no rights of mobility.
“That’s not the Canadian way we do immigration. So we’re going to make sure that that program does not drift in that direction.”
The government moved last July to even further restrict the use of foreign workers after a storm of criticism that an influx of foreign labour was driving down wages and leaving Canadian workers unable to find work.Did you catch that? PM Harper flips natural born Canadians, from every province, the bird.
You dared complain about foreign workers taking jobs that could be filled by unemployed Canadian citizens- You dared complain those foreign workers were driving wages down! I'll fix you uppity Canadians- We'll just make all those foreigners- Canadians- Just like that!
Wages will still go down, people will be without work, or have to work for less and less
Canada's government- not serving Canadians- ever
Be sure to not tell your family and friends about the plans our government has for us.
Heck, don't tell anyone at all- Our government likes that much better.....
Serves their interests, fully and completely
FYI: Ontario youth unemployment among the worst in Canada: report
Government had warning about foreign workers and youth unemploymentAs you can read, the Canadian government fully intends to squander the future of Canada's young people- by giving Canadian citizenship to foreign workers..
—The Conservative government knew the temporary foreign worker program was causing pressure on youth employment
