I have some concerns about the recent poverty protests in wealthy neighbourhoods in Toronto and now at a Shakespearean play in Stratford. I really don't like the message  it sends.
Protesting people for succeeding in life makes absolutely no sense.
What exactly is their crime? They make more money than you? Many of these people worked very hard to get where they are and took on incredible debt to get the education they have.
Why are they being protested?
These wealthy people are in a high tax bracken and pay enough in taxes to support several people on welfare. If it wasn't for people making this kind of money and paying so much in taxes, these social programs would not be possible.
I totally disagree that welfare should be raised by 40 percent. It's already higher than a full-time minimum wage job, especially after taxes.
Who would work a low paying job if he or she could make twice as much money and not have to pay the travel expenses involved in working by going on social assistance?
