Should Canada and the US form a common labour market?

I remember asking this question when the Canadian employment rate was much better than that of the US, in anticipation of the fact that things chance. Many opposed the idea as ridiculous since the US had a much higher unemployment rate than Canada did.

Now that it appears the situation may end up going in the reverse direction, I was wondering people's ideas now concerning the diea of a common Canada-US labour market?

No, the only time the US signs those types of treaties it backfires on the other country. The US will be the only country to profit . You do know that Mexicans wages are now lower than before NAFTA.

I understand that Mexico's economic situation has improved for the better. In fact, I believe that many Mexican nationals are leaving the US to seek job opportunities back home.

Maybe what they really needed was an adjustment to encourage more home-grown jobs in that country and an alteration of the minimum wage accomplished that

Do you really believe statistics released by the US Govt? The metrics of measurement change to produce statistical outcomes. America's U-3 measure of unemployment doesn't include people who have given up looking for work. America's labor force participation rate is very low. That's why increasing numbers of Americans are on some form of the dole.

The exodus from Mexico to America has increased again in anticipation of amnesty.

Baloney..

There is no exodus to the USA, if you're caught as an illegal, they arrest you, hold you for 28 days then set a court date.. you have right to bail and are given a temporary work permit..

9 times out of 10 that work permit turns into a green card, then citizenship..

So you ya wanna get your papers, have ICE pick your *** up and post bond.

The US and Canada will be forming a common labour market under the dictates of the TPP agreement and you and I don't have anything to say about that, or else. It's a very frightening agreement, even with the limited information available it is clear that the deal seals total corporate control of every aspect of every citizen of every country who signed. Welcome to the age of Fascistia.

I'm not sure how valid this is today but I was told several years ago that Canadians' work ethic is much better than that of Americans, my gut reaction is to be skeptical of it, but apparently Canadians looking for work in California years ago were snapped up in a Hollywood minute.

That's the problem not the plumb. Today I read that the EU has outlawed heirloom seed and unregistered gardens. Yippeee sounds like fun eh They are also planning to put truckers in bac tanks installed on the tractors to feed and direct the driver without needing any stops at all. Vital signs will be maintained by automatic injection directly into the operator/organism, public safety and service is a priority, of course.The surgery will be deducted from your reduced pay and you will be retired with the scraped vehicle.
