Only if you really believe the laws of supply and demand don't apply when you think it politically convenient. Raising the cost of workers increases prices and reduces employment in some unknown proportion. So your so-called 'tax for local jobs' would do the opposite by making it more economic to import services and goods from areas with lower wages.

I was being sarcastic.  Tariffs don't work either - that's my point.  Your last sentence doesn't make sense to me.
