Re: Perks vs. wages

It seems the 'Canadian  Dream' is about building one's wealth on the backs of the poor. 

If you can't afford to pay a living wage (ie: the minimum wage requires by law), then you can't afford to be in business. 

Asking people to work below the poverty line so you can own a business is entitlement at it's finest. You are then asking fellow human beings to use their lives to subsidize your desire to own a business. 

If it's a job worth being done, then it's worth being paid enough to live off.
