Poor people and the unemploynment rate in Alberta

 What happened in Alberta is no surprise to the honest, decent folks. Socialists elected in Canada’s oil patch.    A study says shrinking budgets in the oil and gas industry could lead to as many as 185,000 direct and indirect job losses this year in Canada.  In the one horse province  Alberta would be the hardest hit .  Loonie plunges as oil’s slide continues; One-in-four oil, gas jobs could be lost in 2015 but for decades the Politicians did not plan ahead for the rainy days..  Bleak numbers showing that Canada’s economy shrank in the first three months of 2015 have already created a torrent of downgraded economic projections on how the rest of the year will unfold.

Alberta unemployment rate highest in 14 years CBC – Sat Apr 10, 7:03 PM EDMONTON (CBC) – Alberta’s unemployment rate ( falsely adjusted too – it is a lot higher now for the true rate would have  included all people out of work, those who had as a result left the province, and those persons now on social aid too) rose to 7.5 per cent in March, the highest level since 1996, according to figures released Friday by Statistics Canada.The rate climbed 0.6 percentage points from February. The federal agency attributed the increase to a higher number of people entering the work force an increase of 9,700 in Alberta. “The main reason for what we’re seeing is the fact that we are still not fully recovered from recession,” said Thomas Lukaszuk, Alberta’s minister of employment and immigration.

System failing city’s poor, critics say The Ottawa Sun – Sat Apr 10, 9:04 PM  For those fighting poverty in the city, the outlook is bleak.  Fractured families, unemployment, minimum-wage jobs and a tide of immigrants lacking language skills threaten to further inflate the already staggering numbers of people wrestling with the question of whether to buy food or pay rent. Single parents  83% of them women  now lead one in every four families in Ottawa. Because they rely on a single income, these families tend to earn the least and experience higher levels of poverty than two-parent families. Worse, many working women with children have jobs that are precarious, with irregular or part-time hours, lower wages and limited benefits. A recent report from the Social Planning Council of Ottawa illustrates a disturbing trend. Households and Families in Ottawa — which is based on 2006 census data  warns of increasing child poverty and immigrant unemployment that could continue for generations to come. In 2006, 32,853 children under 18 in Ottawa lived below the poverty line.  “That was in 2006 and before the recent economic crisis hit,” said poverty council research director Clara Jimeno. “And immigrant women with children younger than six had an unemployment rate of 30% before the recession as well.”  The Overbrook-Forbes Community Resource Centre is one of the organizations that stands on the front lines in the war on poverty, with 14 branches servicing low-income communities across the city. Anti-poverty community co-ordinator Dominique Paris-MacKay said the situation has become dire.  “The gap between the rich and poor is growing, and that’s because the poor are getting poorer. Food banks don’t have enough food and the fact we have them at all is a failure of our system.”
These 2 items were, are related
Alberta and it’s past premier were  known for it’s despisements  of all of the  poor people, those persons on social aid.. so it is not surprisingly they have to also now next walk in the footstep of the poor so next time that can manifest now more real, valid  compassion
 
The rest of Canada would take heed to this too less they also experience the same thing.. “Poverty is not a choice that people make and it can happen to anybody. One economic downturn can turn someone who was stable to someone who’s homeless.”

Good news the oppressive bad cops in Alberta are  likely to face more lay offs.. Imagine this job creation absurdity, one third of the annual Calgary city hall budget is used to support the police services.. fire 85 percent of them for they are too often slackers, pretenders anyway

(Rom 12:3 KJV)  For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.

(Prov 20:26 KJV)  A wise king scattereth the wicked, and bringeth the wheel over them.
 
(Prov 28:15 KJV)  As a roaring lion, and a ranging bear; so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
 
The popularity of Robin Hood even centuries later personifies some great simple truths about what bad rulers do and do not do.. at both the federal and provincial levels. A good ruler runs the wheel over the wicked persons, even bad cops, those who abuse their offices, who live high on the hog too,  but also does  care  about the welfare of all the persons, the poor included.. Interesting that not only the Conservative Prime Minister Stephen Harper but now also the Liberal premier of three Provinces BC, Quebec and Ontario, and the Conservative Premier of Alberta  clearly are unpopular these days with the citizens cause they fall short in this areas
 
(Job 15:31 KJV)  Let not him that is deceived trust in vanity: for vanity shall be his recompense.
