There is a staggering number of Canadians living paycheque to paycheque and without the resources to use savings for an unexpected expense. We chat about our own experiences and the emotions we went through while living off of savings and earning variable pay as well as some emotions we might feel when making choices between different basic needs when times are tough. Janine came up with a few ideas to help get out of the paycheque to paycheque cycle and drops a few hints about basic income and minimum wage. We’re looking forward to hearing your suggestions for a system that ensures all Canadians can meet their basic needs and feel secure as well as your personal stories about living paycheque to paycheque or becoming politically active.
Pink Tax Rebate: If you’re living paycheque to paycheque, you’re not alone. We recommend seeking professional advice, leaning on your support system and getting politically active.
