Feels decent.

I am putting all my money into VFV soon so I hope the Canadian dollar keeps eating shit.
>>
>>1051846
Thats what it means to be a resource based economy. Working for someone else will never allow you to buy a good home anyway. I worked as a software engineer for four years for miserable 60k/year, didnt have any raises, nothing. Last year I realized if I want money I gotta go out and make it myself. Took me a week to find a product to sell on Amazon, a day to sign up and a week to ship it there. Making decent supplemental income now, with less stress than my day job.

horseshit. @ 21/hr your paying the same rate as a min wage worker unless you do a shitload of overtime, then you definitly make more net than a minimum wage worker.

When I worked as a manager at mcdonalds I was a dollar above minimum wage, my paychecks were usually 800-900 working about 35 hours a week

Now I work 32 hours and my paycheck are about 1040. I do work for a union though and have to pay union dues, but 150 more is peanuts when my wage doubled...

So I pay 1k a month for a relatively shitty apartment, and my lease has expired so I can leave with a months notice. I can find a nicer place jn the 800 range, but I'm wondering if I should wait a bit longer before I sign a ne w lease. My job should stick around. Income is around 2600-3200 on average.

>>

Yeah, but there other positions available that will pay fairly well 70~k range, so I'm looking at moving up slowly but at least I have a goal in mind

I set my floor down at 27 dollars (full rate in a year) and can only move up from there is how I see it

Can we stop this meme? The only city in Canada that doesn't have housing for the middle class within an hour of the CBD is Vancouver, that's it, everywhere else is fine.

Toronto is fine. It's a bit on the expensive side, sure, but you guys make it sound like a shack three and a half hours away by bus is the only thing under $500K.
>>
>>1053433

You live in the North West Territories? Thats the only place where you could even possibly get a $800 paycheque on min wage. And then not even there because your cheques are net and 800/70=11.42. youd have to pay no tax/cpp/ei/etc at all to get that.

So, your a bullshitting cunt.
>>
>>1053632
Uhh condos are like $500k though. All houses are a milli or more
>>
when are these stupid ass housing prices going to plummet ?

My parents are caught in the bubble and they keep wanting to sell their house for 'millions' but they can't because the house itself is absolute garbage.

Get a car you fag lol.
>>
>>1053638
I made about 12-13 as a manager at mcdonalds, tax and cpp and ei are about 100 a paycheck, that would still be around 800 dollars

Even when I worked at TTC as a student, my paychecks were about 480 weekly at 16/hour

>>1053619
Nah its not ttc
>>
>>1053650
Are you one of those people that refuse to commute more than 15 minutes, and then whine about how expensive where you live is? I understand that they're hard to find, but you CAN get a house for under $500K.

I'm interested in this as well, does anyone have any advice for a Canadian who would like to live in/work in the US, at least for a few years? I have American some aunts/uncles/cousins. Is the only way to get into the US to have a business hire you? What if you do web dev or something and are self-employed?

I moved overseas for a temp job but now I'm seriously considering now returning to Canada. It makes me sad that I won't be able to see my family or friends, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make so I don't get financially fucked. My friends are all still in the middle class, middle population city that I was born in. None of them can find worthwhile jobs. I'm so fucking sad for them and every other Canadian now dealing with exorbitant food prices, a housing bubble, and few expectations for the future.

Are you fucking serious?

I don't really follow MapleBong politics that much, but wasn't that pretty much his entire platform and the reason so many millennials showed up to vote?
>>
>>1055401
Trust me anon. A few months before the next election, Trudeau will double down on weed and say he's FOUND A WAY! First thing he'll do on his second term.

Millenials will vote in force for him. I hate liberal young people. am I jaded and to old or are they really that fucking stupid?
>>
>>1055401
Yeah it's hilarious.

His three biggest platforms were:
1) He's not Harper, harper apparently hates women and everyone else
2) He is young and sexy
3) He will legalize marijuana

Two of those are not even reasons and the 3rd he first admitted will take years and then said he cannot legalize it because of "UN" and other countries getting mad.

Wow but the people who voted for him literally thought it would be legal the moment he's elected lol.
>>
>>1055529
Old people tend to be cynics, not realists.

Only populists can reach the highest offices of state, there is too much natural selection involved in getting to that point. Literally every world leader you can think of viewed morality as just a meme to manipulate people.

The CAD is in total shit rn, however it made a slight bounce today

CAD at max will probably drop only to 60-65 Cents 60
>>
>>1054750
No its still way better than earning money in argentina thats for sure LOL

The cad will go back to its avg USD price in about 3-10 years
>>
>>1055562
So is it a good idea to buy VFV or nah?

Should I just buy and sell it once CAD or oil is expected to make a comeback?

I voted for him but figured, at best 2017 or so. Legalization wasn't really a factor for me.

More likely it will be mid of his second term, if at all.

I dont understand how people could have believed it would be anytime soon.

Surprised there is no push at a provincial level in a similar manner to the US.

Holy shit, finally.

Government rates should be tied to the average private sector wages. You people are generally inferior and less productive, and yet you don't face the harshness of the real world and markets.

You have a warm blanket of tax payer money subsidizing your existence.

Hudak was right, we should cut 100k of these desk warmer jobs ASAP.

You can be on the receiving end of some serious abuse in that job. All through history people don't trust the census. In France long ago people would leave their homes and go live in a boat down by the river while the census people were in town. You will be yelled at, threatened and told to get the hell off properties. Then you have to report those people to the census police.
