Globe & Mail discovers "insidious threat" to our prosperity

And it ain't Muslim refugees crossing the Manitoba border. No, the threat is way more insidious than that.

The threat to our well-being is... higher wages!

Here's a taste; "For Joe Six-pack and every other working American who has suffered through a lousy decade, this is great news. For investors, though, rising wages are no reason to smile."

That's Ian McGugan on the front page of the business section in today's paper.

If nothing else, it gives you some sense of who the editors of the Globe are talking to when they use words like "we" and "us."

It's not you and me.

And by the way, it wasn't a lousy decade; it's been three lousy decades and counting.

  1. So true. Sadly, The G&M may well be viewed, on a day-to-day basis (until election time), as Canada's most "progressive" paper, whatever that means. In doubt, have a look at my "papers of record" in BC, The Vancouver Sun and Province. Both are jokes, losing readers daily. And yes, another round of cuts.
