I worked in radio as a broadcaster and radio tech over 40 hour work week .
The Emplyer was only forced to pay the FEDERAL minimum wage of $3.25 per hour when the Ontario Minimum was 5:25 per hour1 this meant that YOU the tax payer was on the hook for costly social supports then . Now that I have no pensions as well due to owner and investor GREED , The tax payers will be providing further costly supports right up until just past my burial .
Is it wise to allow such rampant greed ? Should we be talking about a MINIMUM income so more goes to taxes and worker needs that see the taxpayers no longer paying for costly social supports ?
Consultation has concluded
Thank you to everyone who sent in their stories and feedback to help reduce and prevent homelessness in Canada. In the coming months, the Government of Canada will release a report based on what was heard during the engagement process.
