Re: Minimum wage

It appears to be a wage problem that has always focused on increasing the amount paid to the individual. Has anyone explored the concept of not taxing wages that are below a certain level?

I recently read an article stating that 42 per cent of the money earned by all Canadians goes to taxes. Why not leave more money in the pockets of those who struggle weekly with a minimum wage that is taxed, leaving little money to pay rent, a mortgage and some form of transportation. All of these are essentials we require so as to maintain a fair and healthy quality of life.

To my point, reduce taxes on minimum wage earnings.
