Canada shed 24,200 jobs in July. And the unemployment rate moved up 0.2 percentage points to 5.7 per cent.
That’s horrible. It’s summer! This, and Christmas (or “happy-tree fest of seasonal greetings,” as liberals call it) is when job growth usually happens.
Blame Trump on account of yer “white supremacist” ‘n all that? Yeah no, progressives, the U.S. created 164,000 jobs in July. Unemployment rate is 3.7% there. Black and Hispanic unemployment is at an all time historic low.
It’s actually worse: Canada lost 69,300 private-sector jobs, while the public sector gained 17,500 jobs. Terrible news for what is supposed to be a free-market economy and a free country.
Jobs for women between 25 and 54 years old — dropped by about 18,000. Because it’s 2019 and you all voted for Justin Trudeau.
Among youth aged 15 to 24, employment fell by 19,000 in July, and their unemployment rate rose 0.7 percentage points to 11.4%. This is July, when they’re out of school and can work. Maybe check your vote next time based on something other than feelz.
Hey maybe the news media will ask Mr. Trudeau and the Liberals about this terrible state of affairs for a week or two on the campaign trail! And ask Mr. Scheer for comments as well! No? What? Abortion?
