I lived in Vancouver on and off for 8 years...

And it robbed me of any chance of a social life or career in my 20s. How can the city be so hostile and uncaring to young professional adults that they're fucked the moment they graduate from post secondary?

The city is hostile? Capitalism is hostile. Capitalism is driven by profit. Profit is the highest motivator in a capitalistic society. Based on this fact, capitalism rarely fights for the many, but mainly those that are reaping the profits. Profits being the ultimate goal the owner can get away with paying absurdly low wages, he has no incentive not too. He is encouraged to, as a matter of fact, since his personal profits are more important than the distribution of wealth. Without extreme regulations in place, and profits being the only goal, private owners will do anything to get the competitive edge without any moral guidance. Unless your moral guidance is profits.

Capitalism has but one goal, profits. Humanitarian, egalitarian, moral and ethical ideologies have no place in the system. Profits come before people, and those profits are not for the people. This can be observed in every capitalistic society in the world, where unions and regulations are the only thing keeping private owners from underpaying, overworking and endangering people.

What can you do but, vote for those who are looking out for your best interest when election season rolls around, ask more from them, and join or help form a union.

Best of luck.
