Putting a face to social assistance

Video

People on social assistance are some of the most impoverished in our country. Punitive policies attempt to coerce people on assistance to “get a job” by setting assistance rates at lower dollar amounts than full-time work in a minimum-wage job would pay. Which, coincidentally, it itself insufficient to afford the cost of living in Canada.
There are human lives at the core of social policies. There are human beings sleeping on the streets. Educate yourself.
