New Democrats to Create Jobs with Targeted Tax Credits

NIAGARA FALLS  Andrea Horwath, Leader of Ontario’s New Democrats, joined Wayne Gates, hard-working NDP MPP for Niagara Falls, at auto parts logistics provider Spencer ARL, to talk about the NDP plan for job creation with targeted tax credits.



“Our Job Creation Tax Credit will help companies that are ready to invest in training local workers and equipment right here at home,” said Horwath. “While the Liberals and the Conservatives alike are sticking to no-strings-attached corporate tax giveaways that don’t create jobs, New Democrats are ready to make smart investments and work with the real job creators.”


Horwath said that Ontarians want a government that will make job creation a priority. New Democrats will reward companies that create jobs with a Job Creation Tax credit that will pay 10% of the salary of new employees to a maximum value of $5,000 per job.


“In Niagara Falls Riding and across the province, people are telling New Democrats that they’re sick of watching their jobs get shipped away. New Democrats have the best plan to put people to work and help middle-class families,” said Horwath. “It’s simple: if you put people to work, you earn a tax break. It works, and it will put people to work.'


“In Niagara Falls Riding, and across Ontario, people are struggling with unemployment rates that are way too high. Families need a jobs plan that works. New Democrats will deliver results. It’s time for government that makes sense. ”
