When I was graduating High School my Dad asked me what I wanted to do and had I given any thought to a career. I told him that I was considering a few things and he told me that my opportunities were unlimited!
Well here we are in 2017 Canada, house prices are through the roof, cars cost is through the roof, insurance rates are through the roof etc. so what do we say to our kids and grandkids? Easy - "Your opportunities are unlimited - as long as you work for the government!!!!
According to a recent Frazer Institute Study "Comparing Government and Private Sector Compensation in Ontario finds that government employees in Ontario—including federal, provincial and municipal workers—receive 13.4 per cent higher wages, on average, than comparable workers in the private sector and also enjoy much more generous non-wage benefits."
I am a concerned Canadian that is fed up seeing companies and people leave Canada due to the high cost of doing business and living.
