With so many plant closures and job losses occurring daily, it becomes difficult to keep track. As a service to Canada’s New Government and Finance Minister Jim “it’s not my fault” Flaherty, I thought it would be good thing to keep a tally of these job losses and to determine which of these job losses are in fact Flaherty’s fault by assigning a culpability rating.
Here are the first few entries, starting with the pending layoffs of 2,000 workers at BCE, which are 100% Flaherty’s doing.
Please provide your entries and culpability ratings to: JobLossWatch@JimHadHisChance.ca
