we have the same situation in the UK
But all this low paid work was created by our members of parliament joining the WTO agreement to allow manufacturing to be exported to the third world to keep inflation down and keep them in POWER to hell with the consequences

To the persons trumpeting the 8400 new jobs... tell the whole story... how does the pay of the new jobs compare with the pay received for their old jobs ?????

That difference transfers to the whole community... if the new jobs don't pay as well as the previous job the "new" employees aren't... CAN'T spend as much in the community... for whatever... as they did previously.

Assuming they are making a live-able wage !!! How many "new" employees have had to work multiple jobs ????? Soooo if say all "new" employees had to get two jobs... the community has only added 4200 jobs !!!

Tell me when this thread is updated:
