Back to the jobs for a second, just because we have high unemployment and many desperate to make ends meet is not a reason to bankrupt the city and provide just enough for some to get work to scrape by when we should be investing in development that actually brings jobs that are secure and pay enough to let families live without taking 3 or 4 jobs to make ends meet. We have plenty of un/under used skills of all kinds in our city we just need the opportunity to put them to use. We do not even know if there will be any it is all just speculation.

Council constantly pointed to a past as a time of higher employment and security. but we were even smaller then and not so in the pocket of developers so we did not create endless housing developments without the job market to support it. Now we have so many unemployed we are willing to sell off our most basic necessities air, land, water food, for the least secure lowest paying employment. Is that all Hamiltonians are worth? No.

We certainly can do better but not if we keep putting the same gang of misfits in control of our future.
