    Re: Canadian companies now recruiting American talent

    Canada is a civilized society: people who work are paid a decent wage, not overworked and ripped off like American workers.  Taxes are high, but everyone has access to decent health care, kids receive an excellent public education, and essential services are provided by a government that is responsive to the will of the population.

    Canada is also a prosperous place and has lots of wealthy people among them--they are just not quite as wealthy as the American gazzilionaires and the result is no overt poverty, housing is affordable, the unemployed are taken care of, and they have a healthier population with longer life-spans. It helps that they don't spend more than the rest of the world combined on their military.

    Canada stands for everything that wingnuts despise.  And don't wait by your phone TFlea.  I doubt they will come recruiting you.

    Really?

    • Poverty costs Canada $72-84 billion – for Ontarians this means between $2,299 and $2,895 every year, and for British Columbians, this equates to over $2,100 each year. (Ontario Association of Food Banks report and BC Cost of Poverty report)
    • In 2012, a record 882,000 Canadians used food banks each month, the highest level of food bank usage ever (Food Banks Canada), in 2011 the number was only slight lower at 851,014 – which is still 26% above the 2008 levels (Hunger Count 2011).
    • 3.1 million households pay more than 30% of their income on housing making them housing insecure, and 150,000 – 300,000 are visibly homeless, while 450,000 – 900,000 Canadians represent the ‘hidden’ homeless (Wellesley Institute, Precarious Housing in Canada Report, 2010)
    • McMaster University study (2010) finds a 21-year difference in life expectancy between the poorest neighbourhood and the wealthiest neighbourhood in Hamilton, Ontario.
    • $1 invested in early years (before the age of 6) saves $9 in future spending on health, welfare and justice systems (Report on Public Health in Canada).
    • Out of 25 developed countries, Canada ties for last place for failing to attain nine of UNICEF’s ten benchmark indicators of quality and access to early childhood education and care (ECEC) provision.
    • Poverty costs the Canada`s health care system $7.6 billion per year (Ontario Association of Food Banks)
    • Racialized groups and recent immigrants are more likely to be in poverty, have low paying jobs or be unemployed compared to the non-racialized Canadian population. (Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives & the Wellesley Institute)
    • 1 in 3, or 33%, low-income children had at least one parent who worked full time throughout the year in 2008, and still lived in poverty (Statistics Canada, 2008)
    • Seven provinces have a poverty strategy (NL, NB, NS, QC, ON, MB, PE), and four provinces/territories are in the process of creating a poverty plan (YK, NT, NU, AB).

    They are waiting for you!!

    What is your source for this claim.  Big business in the United States has been claiming for some time now that hiring is slow due to a gap in skills in the population and the skills required for many jobs that are open.

    Perhaps what Tflelio is really telling us is that Big Business has been lying all along. That's what I got from his assertion.

    I love Canada, but I'm biased...I have a dual citizenship.

    It's just like the U.S., only with less crime, less guns, and (mostly) cleaner streets.

    Their stocks of timber, oil and gas alone will sustain them for centuries.

    I plan to retire there someday.

    Thanks.  I needed a good laugh.

    Obviously, you are employed by the government on some level if you believe that.

    Again, not pumping up the Canadians. I'm just happy to see talent not go wasted. If engineers, technicians etc... Can get a decent job in Canada great. I hate seeing talented people ignored for the benefit of those that are content to mooch. That's who this president supports. That is his base. Domestis and foreign freeloaders. 

    [/QUOTE]

    Oh sorry. I had to work today so I didn't have time to follow up Unlike most layabouts on BDC who get their two cents in between classes. I saw a recruiter on a national T V news program this morning state that Canadian companies are targetIng silled American workers. I was happy to see that. 

    [/QUOTE]

    As am I.  However, let's be realistic about Canad'a lack of complete independence from the U.S.   Easy to have jobs, health care, etc.  when you are protected by the military of another country, for example.  Canada spends next to nothing on defense.

    Total BULL-SH!T!!!  I spend 6 days a month in Canada and have for 20years.  Wages are laughable, housing is a disgrace, the lifespan is dramatically shorter, and healthcare is a joke. Most serious medical situations are brought to the US where Canadians routinely spend their family fortunes trying to save a family member`s life, usually way too late, because early diagnosis  is impossible and non-exisitent in this "national healthcare" society.  Canada is a joke!   Canadians know their country is a laughing stock.

    Do you ever do any research before you spew? Canada is the poster child for what America should NEVER be.  Gawd, you`re clueless.

    [/QUOTE]


    The left always likes to point to our friends in the north as examples of the perfect socialist society.  That socialism is paid for with American dollars.  Until quite recently, Canada's major industry was hockey.

    Sure Jmel.  You just know things. 

    Despite the fact that the lifespan in Canada is about 4 years more than the US, you just know its 'dramatically shorter'.

    Despite the fact that Canadians have a median net worth that dwarfs the US, you just know 'wages are laughable'.

    Despite the fact that Canada is near the top of quality of care and access to healthcare(see lifespan as an indicator), while the US is near the bottom, you just know its better here.

    Despite the fact that the Canadian government will fully cover a medical expense in another country, you just know that most families routinely spend their family fortune for out of pocket US care.

    Despite the fact that Obama was leading in virtually every poll except the wingnut ones, you just knew Romney was going to win in a landslide.

    Seriously....despite all of your travels, i've never encountered a person with worse instincts than you.

    I work in the private sector, financial services to be exact.  And since we are ending the year demonstrating the same reading comprehension as when we started it, I would invite to reread my post.  I am asking a question based on what big business has been claiming not what I beleive.

    Unreal the way these people think.  No wonder the incompetent was re-elected.  There`s 30 million people in Canada and they`re all trying to get out.  If it wasn`t for America there would be nothing but Molson and donuts.  I have 22 Canadian employees that will work for my company soley for health insurance and are in a panic thinking OBummer-care will destroy that benefit.  One family lost a 39 yr-old to brain cancer.  He had headaches and was fainting BEGGING for CT-Scans and MRIs and couldn`t get them.  It took 1-year of waiting.  By the time he could have the test(s), the tumor was the size of a lemon.  They took every dime they had and came to Johns Hopkins only to lose their fight. They`ve spent the last year trying to move to the US but their house value is nothing.

    This idiot says my "instincts are bad".  A fool that voted for 3.50 gas, $16 trillion debt, 25 million unemployed, houses worth nothing, al Qaeda lies, and $5 million Hawaii vacations. He/she supports the worst president in history as he took the mess W made and doubled down..........I`ll take my "instincts" over his/her stupidity any day. 

    Canada would be a good place for luser99 to go live...........with America`s blessing.

    [/QUOTE]

    Obviously, you're a Anti-Canadite.  In the worst way.

    And as a half-Canadian, I am offended, though not as much for myself as for my many relatives and immigrants - some of whom came to this country, worked hard, and provided for their kids (like me).  My grandfather fought in WWII right alongside the U.S. GIs, and my Dad served in Vietnam, both honorably.

    And it's pretty 'freakin' DUMB for you to try and extrapolate your own anecdotal experience with a thriving western nation - and closest ally - of 30 million people.

    Do your Canadian colleagues know how much you hate them...??
