    169,000 for August (most of which are part time jobs).

    Modest hiring has continued at a rate of about 184,000 jobs a month for the last year, but that's not nearly fast enough for the 11.3 million people who remain unemployed. The economy needs at least 200,000 new jobs a month just to keep pace with population growth.

    Well, you could always cut corporate taxes in half like they did up here. Didn't help anyone get jobs, but sure made a lot of businesses happy.

    However, this happened for example, which gave your country some great low paying jobs! icon_biggrin.gif

    Do try and keep up on the news...

    Canadian Job Creation Triples Forecasts in August

    The figures "confirm a tendency that has been ongoing for some time and that has been the steady growth of jobs in Canada," Prime Minister Stephen Harper said at a press conference today shown on CTV News at a meeting of leaders from the Group of 20 nations in St. Petersburg, Russia.

    Average hourly wages of permanent employees rose 1.55 percent in August from a year earlier, exceeding the prior reading of 1.35 percent.

    In a separate report, Statistics Canada today said that the nation's labor productivity rose 0.5 percent in the second quarter. From a year earlier, productivity rose 0.1 percent.

    Sorry Southbeach, but of course Harper is going to bleat about that. His Conservative gov't's in trouble, and they have been using this formula you know (you can thank your good buddy jockfever for this one):

    Nope, the dynamics in Canada are much different (better) than in the USA thanks to the conservative government's policies. Unfortunately, we're going to be stuck with 3 or 4 more years of Obamanomics down here.

    Ahhh.. are you referring to our gov't's crackdown on banks? More regulations tightening things up to avoid the crash Bush and co gave you with all that deregulation. In that case I agree with you. icon_lol.gif

    ....or their tightening up of the Temp Foreign Worker Program once they found out how corporations etc were abusing it and avoiding taxes, and of course had to face the outrage of the Canadian public. icon_lol.gif Especially the UNEMPLOYED Canadian public.

    I'm referring to the simple fact that your "Federal" government has instituted policies that are hated by leftists such as yourself and those policies are resulting in economic and employment growth that we here in the USA are not seeing as a result of our Federal government's leftist economic policies.

    To put it in perspective, the USA now has over 90 million people out of the workforce. This is almost 3 times the population of Canada. Under Obama's leftist economic policies, a net 10 million people have dropped out of the workforce:

    The number of Americans who are 16 years or older and who have decided not to participate in the nation's labor force has pushed past 90,000,000 for the first time, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    In July, according to BLS, 89,957,000 Americans did not participate in the labor force. In August, that climbed to 90,473,000--a one month increase of 516,000.

    In January 2009, when President Barack Obama took office, there were 80,507,000 Americans not in the labor force. Thus, the number of Americans not in the labor force has increased by 9,966,000 during Obama's presidency.

    Southbeach said (and can't you just smell the acid dripping in his post/ LOL!) "leftists such as yourself"

    That's a mistake on your part. icon_lol.gif

    Our feds have done a lot of things I like (Mr Harper, anyway)and plenty that I don't (Diane Finley for example, and Jason Kenney, who made Mr Harper look like an ass and should be booted from cabinet as a result).

    IF Southbitch/HereAndThere/(insert sock puppet of the week here) is anything "In Real Life" like his "online persona" here; then he must be a thoroughly miserable person to be around.

    Oh, and a tidbit for Southbeach:

    "The loonie jumped 0.89 cents to 96.07 cents US as the loonie found some support from Statistics Canada data showing that the economy created 59,000 jobs last month. That exceeded expectations of about 20,000 positions but the growth was mainly for part-time employment."

    Sounds kinda like what you're complaining about. icon_lol.gif

    PS "The average monthly job growth over six months, seen as a more reliable gage, was 12,000..."

    Could you present some logic yourself to back up what you have asserted? Doesn't take much smarts to make unfounded statements.
