Ontario is canceling the basic income pilot!



The sad part of this is they promised they would keep it for the full 3 years. So, it's going to leave a lot of people in a bad spot cause they were depending on that money to pay for the rent. Some people moved into better housing and now won't be able to afford it.

They said they might be doing something else and they have 100 days to present it to the government.

So I'm curious of this new plan for social assistance.

basic income checks were at over 1300 dollars and 500+ for people with disabilities.

Which I agree is too high to give out to majority of citizens.

I know a lot of people complained about people maybe not working, but I know a lot of people still worked while they were getting it cause they were happier getting more money instead of just living on a small check each month.
Plus, the one thing I figured when reading about all this is that most of these people won't save the money but go out and spend it, which would help a lot of businesses.
Like restaurants, when the only time they were busy is holidays and weekends. But with more people having money. They went out to eat more.

So if the work is busier cause of it, then they can hire more people and even give people raises.
Personally, I think the pros outweigh the cons for this type of thing.

With jobs already getting cut cause of robots/computers. They have to think of something. Look at mcdonalds, most of their places already have the computer touch screen menu to order your food.

I'm surprised they haven't tried something new for the drive thru yet that is similar.

The only excuse I'll give McDonalds is their employees seems to struggle at the register. Having the costumer do it themselves seems to be the only way to keep them in business.

I personally like not dealing with dumb people, but that is still a person without a job and they still sometimes mess up my order. I ordered my nephew a happy meal today with nuggets and they forget the damn sauce! And I only noticed when we got home with it! GAHHHHHHH! lol

They keep saying tho, that we might still be getting a new form of Basic income, but I will believe it when I see it. Homelessness is getting insane in the bigger cities, Hamilton, which is near Toronto, is having a big problem with people living in tents.
These are people who can't afford to live cause of the prices of rent and utilities and plus food/meds/whatever and they just lost their jobs and got stuck. Not all cases are just crazy and druggies.

More and more factorites in Ontario are closing. Dixie Cup is closing their factory up here and 133 people will now be out of a job.

So hopefully they can figure out away to stop all this stuff from getting worse.

I think helping people get back their life and getting them off the street is very important. When all of the people are happy, any country will thrive.

It was bound to happen as soon as Ford was elected. It's going to be a fucking disaster.

I had a feeling, but he did promise to keep the trial going till it was over, but then got rid of it right away. I figured they would have waited till it was over to get rid of it.
