Well, this is lookin good for Canada. I mean this is the lowest the unemployment rate has been since 1976. It fell last month to just 5.8% Canada added...get this, 94 100 jobs. Probably mostly in the pot industry, lmao. The article does not say that but I'm wonderin, lol.

Unfortunately the wages are low for most of those jobs.
Imo this is mostly due to temp agencies which are making a few bucks an hour off of all employees going through them.

The place I currently work for uses them to screen out employees and hires the ones they like after 480 hours.
After which they go through another 480 hours of probation with no benefits.

I'm against the government allowing those agencies to operate, as well as those small loan businesses.
All of which take advantage of the lower and middle class.

I agree with this for sure. Those agencies should be stopped. They do nothing for the worker. Those small loan places, those bastards should be put in jail, lol. the thieves.

I feel bad for people that get themselves stuck in that trap.
What good is it to have a loan for 1 or 2 weeks?
You have to pay it back with interest by your next paycheck and then you are short again so you borrow yet again. These businesses make $$ and laugh at a person's unwise decision making.

According to Trump we are supposed to be getting higher wages but that hasn't happened and isn't going to happen for awhile for what I can see.

Higher wages means higher prices...

That sounds similar to the payday loan places that litter ghettos.
