Are you a small business person who needs help financing a solid business plan? Can you get viable within 7 years and 1.4 million in free funding? Can you promise to create at least one additional job that will self-fund after 7 years? If you answered yes to these questions then you could single handedly double the efficiency of the Conservative government’s new job creation plan and save the government 3 billion a year after 7 years.
If the answer is yes send the Federal government your proposal. The total cost for using CIT cuts as a jobs creation program will cost the federal government 21 billion dollars over 7 years. The best and shiniest of lipstick that can be put on this pig is an estimate that 100,000 jobs will be created over that same 7 years as a direct result of CIT cuts from 16.5% – 15%. That works out to a cost of 210,000 per job created.
For the love of the good, give me 200,000 for one year and I will employ myself and one other person and be viable by year two.
Brilliant. Add to that the unprecedented deficit generated by the Cons and compare that to the number of jobs created – part-time, lower demographic, low wage, shovel-in-ground type of jobs – and you’ll prove your point even more.
Finally, how about the $16 billion (and counting) on jets that may or may not be built here? Or what about the $10 billion (and counting) for an unwanted prison program to make Canada into a security state and not a secure state?
My guess-timate would be that we’re getting a maximum of 200,000 people employed by a spend of upwards to $100 billion.
$500,000 per job. Now THAT’S rich!!
