I’ll bet you’ve already guessed what Step #2 is — replying to the Canadian applicants.
Here’s how the rest of Steve’s Economic Action Scam works:
- Vastly inflate the stats for supposed job vacancies and skill shortages in Canada by basing them on a program that counts online classified ads, including one on eBay that features the same jobs posted multiple times.
- Refuse to divulge the questionable source of the now vastly inflated stats being used to implement government policy because – commercial confidentiality.
- Tighten up eligibility requirements for employment insurance because — hey, tons of jobs out there going begging.
- Send Kenney off to Ireland to encourage 10,000 Irish students to come to Canada with their newly issued open work permits just as Canadian students hit the street looking for summer jobs.
- Mandate employers to post “help wanted” ads on the government job bank site where they sit undated for up to six months or a year after they are filled, thus providing further evidence for the illusion of a serious labour shortage .
- Give employers a time limit of four weeks to not respond to Canadian job applicants, after which they are free to import hundreds of thousands of temporary foreign workers thus driving unemployment up and wages down.
- Mission accomplished.
- Quietly delete the bogus inflated stats from gov. labour market data after you get busted for basing government policy on an eBay service whose proprietor explained “the job postings on the site are rising in part because the site itself has had major growth in terms of popularity.”
