WE KNOW THAT WORKERS ARE OUR STRONGEST COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE AND CAN DRIVE THE ECONOMY.
Governments can create the good jobs and grow the economy by investing in health care, infrastructure and by restoring services Canadians like veterans, seniors and the unemployed rely on.
Working Toward a Better Future
Canadians need quality jobs they can rely on so they can feel more secure about their future.
Our shaky economic recovery has left 2.8 million Canadians unemployed or underemployed. Nearly three quarters of the jobs created over the past six years have been precarious – part-time, temporary or in the self-employed sector. Nearly a million Canadians have to work multiple jobs just to make ends meet.
The impact is most apparent among younger Canadians, who continue to struggle with double the national unemployment rate.
Nearly 3/4 of all jobs created in the last six years are precarious
Instead of relying on $100 oil or an 80¢ dollar to drive economic activity, let’s make a better choice.
Workers are our strongest competitive advantage. Let’s start to transition away from an economy dependent on fossil fuels to a low carbon economy that would create tens of thousands of quality jobs, boost the manufacturing sector and help fight climate change.
