Our generous provincial legislators ...
... just voted themselves 25 - 30% raise in their own compensation.
And they added $000.25 to the rate of the minimum wage that employers are required to pay their employees, bringing it to $8.00 per hour.
SSince many full-time employees work about 2,000 hours/year ...
... do you know how to live on $16,000 per year?
Even if you are a full-time employee - and a large and increasing number of employees work part-time (no benefits required).
Or on contract, an uncertain existence.
I'm rather thankful to be retired, and out of that rat-race.
