Subsidy for mill doesn’t make sense
Well well well, the government pumps $19 million into the local pulp mill. That works out to $190,000 per employee. Pretty expensive job creation.
What will that do for the company? It will offset their obligation for salaries for a little under two years. What happens then, does the freeloading hand come back out for another subsidy? What is Mr Eby going to do for the pulp mill in Prince George or the sawmill and pulp mill in Chetwynd and the two pulpmills in MacKenzie? At a cost of $190,000 per employee it doesn’t make much sense to subsidize these enterprises.
A much better idea would be to have the employees take over the operation of the places they work in and make a go of it without corporate ripoffs!
