In my post Privatization Works earlier this month I mentioned that I didn't have any employment figures for Alberta. Thanks to the good folks at the Commonwealth Foundation we do now. They report that employment went from 1,300 when the government ran things to 4,000 after privatization.
Alberta only has 3.75 million residents, Pennsylvania has 12.75 million. - you do the math. The union myth that jobs will decrease because of privatization is not true. It wasn't true in West Virginia, it isn't true in Alberta and it certainly isn't true in Washington.
The legislature is back in session so be sure to write, call or visit your representative or senator and tell them that you want them to get off their ass and do something for the consumer and not the special interests - privatize. (Just do it nicely)
Privatization IS Modernization, accept nothing less.
