According to the government of Ontario, the minimum wage is $8.90 (http://www.labour.gov.on.ca/english/...de/minwage.php)
If you work that job full time, that's $356 a week. That's $18512 a year. Now let's say you don't have a family, and you buy cheap food, and eat leftovers as much as possible. That's probably $50 a week, that's $15912. Now let's take rent into consideration. That's $600 a month, so now you have $8712. Once you add utilities, transport costs, clothing, phone bills, and any expenses on kids you might have, where are you going to get that money from?
