Poverty Tidbit

According to a media release by the Sudbury & District Health Unit, 60% of the workers in the Sudbury area earn $10 per hour or less.

In other words, 60% of the jobs in this city allow you to bring home less than $21,000 per year before taxes, assuming that the jobs are full time.

Many jobs that people depend on to feed themselves and their families, of course, are not full time.
