True North is reporting that "Record number of middle-aged women working as Canadians grapple with economic pressure. As grocery prices set records and as Canadians report less than two months of savings, women between the ages of 55 and 64 are entering the workforce at record levels. Statistics Canada released its Labour Force Survey on Friday, showing six-in-ten Canadian women aged 55 to 64 were employed in February – breaking a Canadian record, which was broken the month before."
Times are tough. I'm not going to minimize that fact. The cost of housing is outrageous. Manufactured emergencies from fake environmentalism are compounding that in dark compliance with the sinister agenda to turn consumers into slaves until they own nothing. The manufactured energy crisis has greatly compounded inflation because when you raise the price of fuel, you raise the price of everything in the store that gets transported there by trucks.
Banning fertilizers will create global famine and it has absolutely nothing to do with protecting the environment. Farming and tree planting is green. Plants and trees turn CO2 into oxygen and nitrogen helps plants grown.
Electing politicians who see that is essential to our survival.
What are the benefits of middle aged women working? It's simple. If middle aged women work, they will pay into Canada Pension. That means when they retire they can collect CPP as well as Old Age pension. In today's economic climate, that's important. We all have to plan for retirement.
The cost of living in this province is outrageous. This is not NYC, a lot of people are being screwed by the “BC Bubble”.ReplyDelete
Indeed and that makes life very stressful. I get it.Delete
Oh yah, I’m 63 this summer, retired from one job of 32 yrs and will be looking for work soon. I’m not set up for anything to go wrong and car is going to need helpReplyDelete
It sucks. I'm going to be working 'till I'm 70. Last year I put $13 thousand into my pension and it depreciated $27 thousand. I lost twice as much as I put in last year.Delete
I’m living so close to the edge and am thinking of using the food bank for the first time ever. Luxuries are out and the thrift shop is my fun. I’m glad I had fun in the 80’s and rented when I did. Good luck to those 50 and under. It does not look like a picnic. Vote Trudeau out.Delete
Things will eventually improve. The race goes not to the swift nor the battle to the strong but to he who endures. As Mary Poppins would say, best foot forward. It's not all Trudeau's fault but he has definitely made it worse. Replacing him would be an improvement.Delete
selling our rural home north of Toronto after 30 plus years... reason? Too expensive to live here.. property tax, insurance, energy, groceries.... DONE... taking our equity before it crashes and trying New Brunswick where all of the above costs a fraction of as much as the GTA. Do we know anyone there? NO... do we have roots there? NO we will be refugees from ultra woke, ultra broke Ontariowe.ReplyDelete
New Brunswick is nice. However, what does down will come up. Houses will bounce.Delete
property taxes skyrocketing.. energy costs as well...crime also unabated... a dozen car thefts per night is a slow night around here and hence auto insurance is...??? RISING many many fold of certain ethnic heritage (white european) being priced out of southern Ontariowe as they have been for ages in the lower mainland of BC...Delete
Where is crime rising? Everyone keeps saying that. Surrey used to be the car theft capital of North America. Not so much any more. I did see some documentaries about cars stolen in the GTA being sold overseas. That's organized crime for sure.Delete
