It's corruption, plain and simple

I am on PWD, I make very little money but am unable to do most work. I live in an sro and I was thinking about the "housing crisis". Many of the people living in my 55+ building are in their 30's and have construction jobs. Last time I checked construction jobs are well paying so how is it that these people are living in low income housing? BC housing.

I worked with a software engineer who lived in a government subsidized co-op. I was surprised that he even admitted it, being an able-bodied young white male probably making $100K/year. It was gross to know that about him. How can he live there when others are on fixed incomes, disabled, etc??

No matter what your income, unless you are filthy rich it is very difficult to survive the never ending increases in food, shelter and everything else.

The issue is reporting income. A lot of people who work in construction are paid in cash. They do not report this income. They can be making $30/hour cash and still get a welfare cheque. I know someone in one of these buildings who does this and gets all these free benefits from the Government. Free bus pass, etc. They even get free legal assistance. I know this because I am a Landlord.
