Liberals, doing their best to help the middle class by keeping wages down for big business!

As Immigrants Pour In, Wages Stagnate in Surging Canadian Economy
In the five years through 2020, about 1.9 million newcomers came to the country, up from 1.2 million the previous five years. The U.S., nine times the size of Canada, saw its net flow of immigration drop to about 3.8 million over that time, from 4.5 million.

The results are simultaneously terrific and problematic: Companies have been filling job postings at a breakneck clip, pushing payrolls back above pre-pandemic levels and allowing them to ramp output back up. But workers, with fewer labor shortages acting as leverage, are scoring tiny wage increases -- currently running at 2% on average -- that leave them poorer after inflation of almost 5% is factored in.

your linked article is behind a subscribers paywall!

but hey, other than relying upon immigration, what's your alternative to a worker shortage tied to an aging (retiring) workforce? As the waldo reads,
Quote
"Since 2008-09, an aging workforce has subtracted one million workers from the economy. And longer-run demographic forces will continue to weigh on labour force participation as waves of baby boomers reach typical retirement age... forecasts suggest that retirements will remove another 600,000 workers from the country’s available labour pool over the next three years.

the CPC/O'Toole dance continues! Covid related stats suggest legitimate vaccination exemptions total between 1-to-3 persons per a 100,000 populace... and those exemptions would, typically, be limited to those who are at risk of a severe allergic reaction or at an elevated risk of developing myocarditis (a rare heart condition).

since CPC/O'Toole continue to refuse to state the actual number of CPC MPs claiming/stating they hold a medical exemption, speculation continues - to as high as "more than 20+ CPC MPs who haven't received COVID vaccinations". State the number CPC/O'Toole; end the speculation! What are you waiting for... what are you afraid of?

Like the electorate we have crap to work with. It's like our governance is still in the coal-age when we need rechargeable-electric.

Citizen's assemblies...PR...drawing names from a hat.... I've resorted to throwing darts at a chart when fish get really scarce.
