    So pay your employees for the next 6 weeks and wait by the mailbox! If you own a business and you had enough money to cover payroll for even a month who makes %25 margins? How about you stop digging into our pockets for income tax till this is over? That way owners of businesses can take there remittances and spread them through their companies!

    Thought I don’t agree with what Bill Morneau said, I think he is the only one in the government that has a brain. All other is useless can’t even answer very specific questions.

  12. Recovery will depend on how fast demands for goods and services recover, NOT on whether or not employees are attached to businesses. 1. The economy plummeted because of reduced demands due to restricted travels and fears of infection, NOT because employees were laid off. Think logically, which came first, the chicken or the egg? 2. Employers and employees do not forget each other, they can easily reestablish contacts once the pandemic is over. If either can find new opportunities before that, it’s even better. 3. Artificially keeping employees connected to their jobs would reduce competition, which may hinder the economy from reaching a new balance quickly. Once the pandemic is over, not everything will go back to the way it was, a new balance would have to be established, which means businesses and workers must be free to compete.
