 The Ontario government should be devoted to reducing the poverty issues concerning our province. The best way is to put money directly in workers’ pockets, eventually get reinvested. Individuals are talking about working and making wages to get away from poverty. Having the ability to pay your bills on time ,  pay  debt, and providing for your family.  Common sense = financially viable sense
Canadians are  working at or below minimum wage according to Statistics Canada (2009), more than 800,000.  Unfortunately, minimum wage has been frozen for three years in Ontario. We  want it  Unfrozen  and Increased  to $14 an hour. Then index it to the rate of inflation. is stated that increasing the minimum wage to $14 per hour will put those below the poverty line above it by 10%. In Ontario, the minimum wage has been frozen for the last three years (Workers Action Centre, 2013). The purpose this social action  movement is to increase the minimum wage from $10.25 to $14 per hour.
