Grassroots >> Does a wealthy person need lots of money or is it something else?

The taxpayers of Hamilton are not wealthy, apparently 20% of the city's population is under the poverty line. The average city employee makes more than the average wage in Canada, far above the poverty line. All I am suggesting is to bring these two numbers closer together.

>> Labour must stand for labour, trace the labour history, the roots.

I am standing up for labour, the labour of the taxpayer who PAYS the salaries of city employees. For every dollar that goes to a city employee, it reduces the amount of money that goes to someone who works at Stelco, or Tim Horton's, or as a temp worker. This isn't about increasing division, it's about decreasing division. Currently, the relatively low income taxpayers of Hamilton subsidize the relatively high income city employees.
