Here are the facts:
Edmontonians are currently living in poverty.
That’s about 1 in 8 of our citizens who make less than $16,968 per year for a single person and $33,936 per year for a family of four.
Edmontonians working full-time earn less than $15/hr.
Many of those people who are struggling to make ends meet include women, lone parent families and recent immigrants to our city.
The annual cost of poverty
This works out to $2700 every year for each taxpayer. Managing poverty costs us our future when our children are too hungry to learn.
