Horwath's Labour Day Pledge: Kill Jobs

TORONTO, Sept. 5, 2011 /CNW/ -

NEWS

Andrea Horwath and the toxic NDP platform will hurt Ontario workers and kill jobs.

Horwath will shut down Ontario's clean energy businesses, snuffing out a booming new industry and killing thousands of jobs, driving companies out of business.

The NDP have also pledged a protectionist scheme to shut Ontario's doors to global mineral investment, killing jobs in the natural resources sector.

And Horwath has promised a massive job-killing $9 Billion tax hike on job-creators.

Horwath chose to play political games by siding with Tim Hudak's PCs and voting against Ontario workers. She voted against raising the minimum wage, against the $1,100 / year Ontario Child Benefit, against funding full-day kindergarten, and against lowering energy bills by 10%.

QUICK FACTS:

Ontarians remember the NDP hurt workers before and know they'll do it again. In the 1990s:

  • An average of 1,000 people a week joined the ranks of the unemployed
  • The unemployment rate averaged above 10 % under their watch
  • They imposed $2 billion in public sector wage cuts
  • They forced mandatory, unpaid days off for all OPS

QUOTES

"The NDP will hurt workers and kill jobs - Andrea Horwath will take Ontario off track after families have worked so hard to turn the corner."

      - Charles Sousa, Liberal MPP

"Andrea Horwath has repeatedly chosen to play politics, and side with Tim Hudak's PCs, instead of choosing to support positive solutions for Ontario Workers.  Only the Ontario Liberals have a positive plan to move Ontario forward."

      - Charles Sousa, Liberal MPP
