Good jobs = better lives

It’s time for good jobs and a fair economy that lifts everyone up, not just the few at the top:

Since the Liberals formed government, nearly half of all jobs created have been part time. There are still nearly 1.3 million unemployed Canadians and 6 in 10 cannot access EI benefits.

But instead of fighting for better jobs, our Finance Minister has told Canadians to “get used to” part-time, low paid, precarious work. That’s unacceptable.

That’s why New Democrats are standing up for hard-working people and fighting for good-paying jobs, a $15 minimum wage, pay equity, investment in good green jobs, and support for small businesses.

If you work hard you should be able to afford a good life.
