A Smith: What I try to do is to show the inefficienies of the current welfare programs for workers trying to find work or get back into the workforce.

Many of those that work in the system do not know Employment Standards, the lack knowledge of the Labour Relations Act, they lack knowledge of the Occupational Health and Safety Act, the prime focus is to get you off the system ASAP and they do not care one iota where they place you or if any of your rights are actually adhered to. The concept of enforcement of your rights, does not enter their feeble minds.

But as a taxpayer, your tax dollars are being spent to keep people in an endless cycle of poverty.

I will think about your suggestion, do you have any more input into your idea? What types of businesses would you like to see here in our community that would pay a living wage, offer benefits and contribute to the communty as a whole?
