December VIth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
I have asked Congressman Ted Poe of Texas for his opinion on the bad job market in his state. Also, what with costs rising exponentially how small businesses (just like here in Alberta) are laying off untold thousands. Thus destroying the lives of many working folks & their families.
"The U.S. has become an unfriendly place to do business. Many companies fear the environment of uncertainty, complicated tax structure & onslaught of complicated regulations & as a result, choose to sit on the sidelines & not hire or expand. This has led to a lingering unemployment rate above 8% nationwide."
