Re: Choosing work instead of welfare, June 19.
You are right, Tom. Your column of June 19 is so right. Those bloody teachers are to blame for the employment problems in B.C.
They share equal responsibility with the Liberal government that for 10 years cut the minimum wage for young people to $6 per hour and kept this wage over $2 per hour less than in the rest of Canada.
Excellent analysis and insight.
However, I think there is one small group who is more responsible for all problems in B.C., even more than teachers – small-town newspaper columnists who can’t get a job anywhere else and who are paid to spew extreme right-wing, corporate propaganda to people in our province. Their job is to undermine confidence in the public interest, to take cheap shots at hard-working citizens and to encourage privatization of… everything.
Good job, Tom. You represent your kind perfectly.
