A Smith: I would like you to explain your theory on not raising minimum wage. Because from where I stand, minimum wage is currently $8.75 and those workers are having a hard time paying shelter, food and transportation costs, many of those who are the working poor have been trying to access the foodbanks, yet many have been denied because they cannot prove that they are poor. Do you believe in slave labour? Just asking.

It seems you are promoting that those from other countries can come here and work for starvation wages, which puts the pressure on other employers to drive down wages, but the costs to live are ever increasing.

Do you think people should be working for say $2.00 per hour, three, what????

Though I do agree with you analogy of the government, that the bureaucracy is ever growing, the malfesceants in the government which demand over the top living wages, benefits packages, pensions, yet deny those at the bottom to live in dignity, you know those technocrats who want to control every facet of ones life.

Should not getting Canadians jobs be the priority??????
