Last month the jobs market suffered its biggest loss in two and a half
years, bumping the Canadian unemployment rate up to 7.3 per cent.
Overall, 54,000 jobs were lost, mainly from the manufacturing and
construction sectors (Canadian Press, November 2011). Politicians in
Canada and south of the boarder are heeding the call to boost jobs and to
start “making things again.”
What better time to introduce policies to promote the idea that businesses
should recover and transform their wastes into raw materials, especially
since this creates jobs?
