Doug Ford's government has given members of their own government 14% raises, and then expect people on social benefits, EI, ODSP, CPP etc. to survive on a 2% increase (and teachers are fighting to get more than a 1% increase.) 

Being someone unable to get a job isn't something to be punished for. 

Being too old to get a good job isn't something negative. 

Being mentally or physically incapable to do many jobs isn't something to be made to feel guilty. 

The inflation rate isn't anywhere near 14%, but the money being spent to these raises could go towards social housing projects (which many low income people need.) People that want to work could maybe if these FAT raises otherwise paid for programs that maybe helped people become self-employed, or supplemented their incomes as their self-employment project develops and income increases - perhaps providing jobs to other people as well. Perhaps employers need incentives to create positions that in the long run help their business expand.
