Here's a good way to evaluate any proposal. If the proponent claims that it will "create jobs", it's probably not in anyone's best interests except that of the proponent. "Job creation" is always the "justification" for proposals that have no self-evident benefit. Why? For the very reason that "job creation" is an ethereal, intangible, unmeasurable "benefit". In truth, it's nothing more than a throwaway line. If all the jobs that have been predicted to be created by projects such as a casino actually came to be, we'd all have two of them. If you need proof of this, just listen to Tim Hudak. He justifies every one of his "make the rich richer" schemes with "job creation". The fallacious phrase "lower taxes create jobs" has been repeated so many times that, for some, it's become accepted wisdom witout a shred of proof.
