tristen, Im curious, do you think if the stimulus was bigger it would of been more successful? Ive heard many people suggest this, bill clinton was one of them. They say that it was too small to make an impact. It does seem to make sense to me, but Im not all that savvy with this stuff lol Do you think it could of worked if was more substantial?

The stimulus was too small. Helped with extensions. Only put the money into public sector jobs, which are now being cut. We needed a WPA project that could have started immediately.

Free trade agreements should have immediately been renegotiated. The tax cuts for employers should have increased. Outsourcing should have been put a stopped to and put on review. Employers should have been forced to pay the difference for manufacturing elsewhere if they wanted to be in our market.

The rise of temporary jobs need to have more rights. Need a guarantee minimum time on a contract. If it was to go 12 months, 3 months, not one month or less. That is taking an advantage and not ethical! Other employee rights need to be highly investigated, such as age discrimination! Employees and contract workers are customers to, not to be jerked around.

Some in my party would shot me for saying this but following Dick's (love the name) mantra about how deficits don't matter I would have made the stimulus twice as large and shelved Healthcare. I would have provided quick loan assistance to any company that hired UE. The formula would be based off the loan amount, the larger the loan amount the more UE would have to be hired full time with the same benefits afforded to them as reg hires. The new hires could not be laid off for the term of the loan and could be fired like any other employee for just cause (a new UE would have to be hired in their place as they would be required to maintain the number agreed for the loan amount). The UE new hires could file a complaint with the Labor Board if they believe that they were fired unjustly. If the review shows they were fired without just cause the loan would be terminated and would need to be repaid in full. I would have still bailed out the Auto industry as that to me is a national defense issue and although I do not like Unions that is just to many skilled workers to lose. I would have bailed the banks out but broke them up like the old Mountain Bell phone company. Anything too big to fail is too big and needs to be broken up IMO.
