Canwest:The poor win by having to take a Paycut
Listening to Canwest's corporate toadies tell it, Canada’s poorest should be overjoyed. So what if their incomes are fallen sharply over the last 25 years. Both spouses have to work now to make ends meat and so the family incomes of Canada’s poorest Canadians have actually gone up 11%. The Star’s Linda McQuaig summed things up quite nicely. “The Post thinks Canadian families should be content with earning a little more than they did 25 years ago – by working twice as much.” Of course, the Post never did mention mentioned anything about added day care costs.
