It’s about the community:

Take the Good Jobs Pledge today!

Our communities need decent, well-paying, productive jobs, including in value-added export industries (like auto).  Without good jobs, we can’t support local businesses, pay taxes to support public services, or offer our children a decent future. 

Good jobs are crucial to the well-being of our communities – no matter what job you do.

Creating and preserving good jobs into the future requires concerted effort by both business and government. It doesn’t happen without taking concrete action.

To Global Corporations:

You enjoy enormous opportunity in Canada, manufacturing and selling your products here.  In turn, you owe something back to our economy, and our communities.  I’m joining the call for you to invest more in Canadian operations and good Canadian jobs.

To Prime Minister Harper and Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty:

Other countries around the world support their key value-added industries (like auto) with pro-active policies, including fair trade policies.  It’s time Canada did the same. 

I’m calling on you to implement a National Auto Policy to support the Canadian manufacturing footprint long into the future, and to convene a National Jobs Summit to develop an overall strategy for keeping good jobs in Canada.

i’m not interested in my tax dollars supporting any business …including the auto industry….if it can’t survive in Canada without infinite tax dollars subsidies forever then let it go. If it’s too big to fail then let it get smaller so it’s not too big to fail.

We are going backwards with the legislation the governments are adopting.

The governments make it sound like they are on our side but in reality they are speaking the language and wishes of the corporate elite. It is like the wording in the advertisements, such as BEST IN CLASS. They don’t define what they mean by class.

I’m very concerned that Ford and other American Automakers seem to be abandoning Canada. I believe in fair trade, if you don’t employ Canadians or have cut back your participation in our economy don’t expect Canadians to buy from you.The German automakers appear to be absent from the Canadian economy hence they should not be allowed to sell vehicles in Canada. Canadians need to take a hard line with automakers who have decided our market means nothing to them..

Without the auto industry this country would be in trouble. We just can not afford to continue to accept good paying jobs, as a thing of the past. How many people working for Walmart or Tim Hortons are buying new cars?
