If The Minimum Wage Is Being Raised To $11.00 Will Student Wage Get Raised As Well

What is the average earning for a student in Canada? Can a student earn and pay for his/her higher studies?

Hello there!If you are asking about the minimum wage while working, then I can help you. There is a different minimum wage for every province. B.C.’s minimum wage is $10.45 (hourly), while some other province like Nunavut minimum wage is $13 (this is because not many people want to work there as it is cold and all that). I am assuming since you are still studying and are young, you will get a job which gives you minimum wage (no offence but I don't think they pay that much to youth or students, its my thinking), So here are the listings of the minimum wage in each province (hourly):Alberta$11.20British Columbia$10.45Manitoba$11.00New Brunswick$10.65In 2017 (exact timing to be determined), New Brunswick's minimum wage will increase from $10.65 to $11.00.Newfoundland & Labrador$10.50Northwest Territories$12.50The regulation does not specify that there must be an annual increase.Nova Scotia$10.70On April 1 of each year, minimum wage is adjusted annually relative to the Consumer Price Index.Nunavut$13.00The minimum wage is adjusted annually on April 1.Ontario$11.25The minimum wage will increase to $11.40 per hour on October 1, 2016.Prince Edward Island$10.50On June 1, 2016, PEI’s minimum wage will adjust from $10.50 per hour to $10.75 per hour and on October 1, 2016, minimum wage will increase to $11.00 per hour.Quebec$10.55On May 1, 2016, minimum wage will increase from $10.55 to $10.75.Saskatchewan$10.50On October 1 of each year, minimum wage is adjusted annually relative to the Consumer Price Index and Average Hourly Wage.Yukon$11.07If you want the average minimum wage, then that would be approximately $11.07.And if you are asking if the earnings can pay for a students higher studies, then that would depend on what university you go to. So it mostly depends on how much the fees for courses cost, and then the rest you can calculate on your own given the data I just gave you.I hope this really helps!If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments!

Is Bernie Sanders $15/hour minimum wage feasible?

I don't think the economy will suffer excessively, but I don't think it will help very much either. Here are my various thoughts on the matter:It sometimes amounts to efficiency wages. These are instances in which employers already should be giving employees $15 per hour because it results in a higher level of productivity. The fact that they don't choose to do it of their own accord is an example of market failure. This has been observed to happen in fast food in particular. When it happens, there is not a significant negative effect on employment levels. However, those who think that such is always the case are kidding themselves.It will often result in fewer non-cash benefits. No more free parking or discounted meals in the company cafeteria, for example.It will result in more contract work. Instead of taking on employees, companies will give work to individual contractors that end up charging less than what one would pay an hourly employee.It will result in higher prices. Especially for the basic commodities on which lower-tier workers rely.The higher minimum will "lift all boats". One of the arguments against the higher minimum wage is that it is not fair for law to require that people with university degrees to be paid just as much as highly replaceable dropouts, but the counterargument is that the market will force more educated workers to get paid more in turn. This is probably true, but remember the previous point.There will be a greater incentive to automate. Forget what I said about a higher minimum wage not affecting employment levels in fast food. That may not be the case this time around. Carl's Jr. is getting ready to fully automate, and others are sure to follow suit.Automation is not all bad. In fact, it's mostly good. It will destroy some jobs, but it will also create others. One thing it will do is bring manufacturing back to the United States. It will not bring back the millions of low-level assembly-line jobs, but it will result in higher-level technician jobs.Altogether, a higher minimum wage will probably be neither as bad as opponents say nor as good as proponents say. My position is to just let the socialists have this one so we can stop talking about it and get on with the things that really matter. If we really want to improve people's lives, we need to invest in training for marketable skills.Ronald Kimmons is an independent 2016 candidate for the U.S. House of Representatives in Houston, Texas (District 7).

Illegal Immigration destroying America's middle class - Us or Them?

Us or them? The answer should be obvious. Isn't it sad we really have to ask this question? I'd kick their out, but I don't matter, I'm a middle class American citizen.

I keep seeing people ask "how do you stop companies from moving their operations to other countries?" The answer is, you don't stop them. What you do is make it very painful to do so. You don't want to pay American wages? You don't want to pay corporate taxes? Fine, but if you want to sell your products and services in America, the most consumer driven society in the world (for now), prepare to get slapped with some MAJOR import tariffs. The companies who have made their fortune from our business-friendly society have the arrogance to double whammy us by moving out of the country to pay third world wages, then sell them back to us as if they were produced at American wages. It's sickening and it could be stopped by using protective tariffs. Our government exists to protect OUR interests. Racist, jingoist? Whatever. It's our prerogative. Americans and our ancestors worked hard to bring us to our enviable standard of living. Calling me a racist doesn't hurt my feelings at all.

And you can bet the people saying that are a bunch of spoiled teenagers and indoctrinated college kids with rich daddies. They've never worked a day in their life. But they'll find out what it's all about soon enough.

How difficult is life in the United States?

For the US citizen, for the vast majority of the US it is not too terribly bad. The median income is about $51,000. Which in most parts of the country is enough to live on. In some areas it is a bit more difficult (Like DC).The poverty rate is about 14%, but poverty is defined as having less than $28,000 for a family of 5, and $11,000 for an individual. That is barely enough to live on, and unexpected expenses medical bills, car repairs can make that barely to not enough. But compared to poor in other parts of the world, their living standard is higher except for most other industrialized nations.Discrimination is possible in the US but relatively rare in most urban/suburban areas, but very rarely does it develop into violence. The rural parts of America is a mixed bag, depending on its culture and predominate politics.Life will be easy if you have a strong work ethic, a decent education or technical skill, and can manage your finances. Life is hard for the uneducated and unskilled workers, as there are few jobs they will qualify for and those generally pay the minimum wage or close to it. Depending on locale minimum wage ranges from $11.00 to $7.25 an hour, which is $22,880 to $15,080 a year at 40 hours a week, 52 weeks a year. If you look at the poverty levels, you will see how close it is for an individual, and at $11.00 an hour it is better, but that is in states with higher costs of living. The other problem is that many of these jobs are part time and do not include any health benefits, paid time off.

What's a good part of Chicago that's affordable for a family of 3 on a minimum wage job?

Honestly, none. If you're looking for a 2 bedroom apartment in Chicago in a “good” neighborhood, you might be able to find something for around $800-1,000 per month, but its probably not the best neighborhood, or one that has a lot of shops/restaurants/ entertainment. You could find something closer to $800 in the suburbs, but you then have to factor in transportation costs.With one minimum wage job, you'd be well over the recommended threshold of recommended rent. If minimum wage is 7.25 per hour × 2,080 hrs per year = annual salary / 12 = monthly income = $1,256. Its recommended that you spend no more than 1/3 of your income on ALL housing costs, which would leave you with a rent & utility budget of $414. That’s not even taking out taxes, so its probably closer $380-400. You can’t even get a studio for less than $1,000 in a desirable neighborhood in Chicago.There's always exceptions to the rule, but they are few and far between.
