Everywhere we go we see "We are Hiring" signs.
My Wife just stopped and said "you weren't even listening were you?"

I thought to myself, that's a weird way to start a conversation.

Yes, may be a few of those, but also a lot of high quality jobs too and they are going wanting for people to fill them. And you can bet that some of the people restricted to applying at fast food outlets will be crying about their wage. Memo to them: taxpayers provided you opportunities like professional education (engineering, nursing, and med schools) at universities, and trade schools at community colleges, etc. Made the decision not to take advantage of it. Look in the mirror. Choices almost always come with consequences.

How many of the jobs come by way of mass spending by the Government?
How many jobs come from NO tax dollars?

Without a government in place providing security, infrastructure, and educated workers, a lot of jobs wouldn’t exist.

Likewise, if you look at the single greatest expense by government, healthcare, then you can see that there are hundreds of thousands of jobs across the country that exist because of it.

The more relevant question might be what is government doing to facilitate and/or stay out of the way of private business in filling the positions that are currently going wanting. For example, I know a lot of young engineers from Iran, Bangladesh, China, parts of Africa, and other places that would love to get PR and eventually citizenship here. So I wouldn't mind seeing a few more government employees in immigration to expedite the paperwork.

I have a question about how we count jobs. Are temporary part time jobs real jobs?

I mean sure technically its a job obviously. For all the people out there that want a real job, full time and permanent, the glut of seasonal, part time, while we're busy, contract jobs are almost worse than a real job. I say nearly worse because you kind of get stuck in this barely scraping buy, rotating shift work lifestyle.
So much of the violent push-back on everything progressive and reformist comes down to: I can see the future, and in this future I am not the centre of the universe and master of all that I survey, therefore this future must be resisted at all costs.

There are people here that coild fill those jobs, but first we need to fix things like EI and put the word 'Insurance' back in so that like any real insurance, risk factors like educational attainment, claims history, etc. are accounted for in the premiums individuals pay.
