Yes no doubt this old lady will be damned for her lack of pride, her inability to suffer in silence and her lack of work ethic.
Why doesn’t she go out and get a real job? We’re sure Walmart and McDonald’s are always hiring.
ahh she might just be too old and mouthy and isn’t she that troublesome biddy who insists upon reading the fine print before signing a contract?

The Canadian economy based on the work ethic?
Would that be the same economy built over the centuries upon the “model of marriage that allowed men to free-ride off the domestic labor of women”. Carole Pateman might have an answer to that question.
There are some scholars concerned that Basic Income would destroy the incentive to work.
Incentive to work?
Do Canadian programs really promote an incentive to work?
Ever see jobs or programs that are open to people not on welfare or EI?
Ever go to an employment office and try to get help finding a job?
Ever watch the welfare guy dump his cigarette butts out onto public sidewalks?
Ever wonder about welfare dental care while you cannot afford a dentist?
Ever wonder about welfare guys taking taxis while you walk?
Ever watch the EI recipients pack up and head south for the winter?
Ever wonder what that fourth generation welfare kid will be doing in a dozen years?
Does Canada have any incentive to work that might be endangered by Basic Income?
What do these guys have to say about incentive to work?
John Maynard Keynes
Do other Canadians worry more about work ethic or survival?
One thought on “Canadian Work Ethic”
