Uhh... I have lived a very, very dynamic and interesting life. Maybe you should start an internet business so you can have free time to pursue your hobbies and interests while pulling in hundreds of dollars per day with only a few hours of work

BC has a problem. Let's just face it.

With the huge amount of inflation we deal with in the GVRD, nobody can afford to live their same lifestyle. People are cutting back on everything and that causes a reaction in prices of supply/demand.

Baby boomers who should have retired 5 years ago, are still working. Taking away positions from recent graduates from universities. (I know way more then 2 handfuls of my parents friends who are getting paid their pensions, and still "consulting" on the side)
The other issue is experience. Everybody who is a recent grad knows, any and every company out there doesn't want a junior. They want someone with experience. Thus the openings for juniors (recent grads) are next to none, leaving them to work the retail/mcjob's that are available.

Now education: I can't blame our education system for anything. The system has gone along with the times, it has accounted for the technology boom, and courses/programs were made to follow this trend.
The issue is the students. I have so many friends who just wanted to party and have fun, so they took the easiest programs you can take; sociology, psychology, history, liberal arts. Ofcourse you're going to find NOTHING here. We are in an age of technology and construction, that's the building boom. These friends all have now gotten their 4 year degrees, and are now in BCIT, Kwantlen, VCC, getting certificates/diplomas directly related to the building boom. They just ended up wasting 4 years of their life and are learning the hard way.

Unfortunately the GVRD is right now fucked. And it seems with a high cost of living, nothing will change. The driven will prevail, and the weak will fail. I just hope I can stay ahead of the curve.

Talk to the bar backs in this city and find out how they survive, it might shock you. Down in the bedbug infested DTES, 200 sq ft shitholes rent out for $775 a month and they're always full of young people wanting to live the dream!

People laugh at me when I say 10k a month does not go very far anymore


The key to modern life is to not get sucked into competition with others, ignore what the next guy is up to. Buy your clothes on aliexpress, visit a u-brew and make your own beer and cider, don't feel pressured to socialize with people happy to spend $8 on a beer then complain they're broke, and don't feel the need to be generous with others. Drive an older car! One of the guys that recently moved out of my building was paying $2500 a month for his loft and $1500 for a brand new Audi. He was in CrossFit at $300 a month and spent $100-200 every few nights trying to date hot 20 year olds. I believe he said he made $150,000 last year and was completely flat broke. Said he was moving back to Alberta where his lifestyle in Calgary would be half the cost of what he pays here. I suggested to just buy some weights and a chin up bar, ditch the new audi, and then move to a cheaper place in Vancouver and he just sort of stared at me like I was insane for suggesting to downsize his lifestyle.

It can be tough when girls are one of our society's metrics for success, with the status items you own or the title you have, women reward you with vagina.(Jian Ghomeshi would have never got away with slapping around women and having so much rough sex with so many girls if he were a taxi driver rather than a Canadian celebrity on one of the CBC's most popular programs.)

Girls just need to follow this:

1. Get skinny
2. Get big boobs
3. Dress hot

Job opportunities everywhere and easy to find guys to dupe into paying for everything you want

Both are grunt jobs, I can dig a trench all day long, doesn't mean that I deserve $15/hr. Working your ass off means nothing unlesss you are in a field that requires absolute skill.

I agree that raising the minimum wage will just increase the cost of goods, yielding nothing of value.

Late to the game here but IDGAF.

Why? Because everyfuckingone else* gets paid according to their skill, experience, and/or overall value to the employer. If a trade grunt is only WORTH $15/hr., he's not going to start making $20 just because all the burger slingers are suddenly making as much as he is.

*except unions where your pay is based strictly on scale and seniority, but that's a whole other rant

It might when people in the trades decide to flip burgers instead.

Except when you're in a trade, the pay difference between junior apprentice and everything above it is far greater than you'd ever see in a McJob/retail position, outside of supervisor/manager roles. Sure, starting out you may make roughly the same, but in two to five years, the difference will more than make up for that initial pay.

Hah

I bet that 80% of the people here would not have the physical stamina to dig a trench all day. I bet most would pussy out after about an hour.

Physical skill & ability is still skill.

I shovelled out seven 3/4 ton pickup loads of dirt from my property by hand, and shoveled the same amount of gravel back in over the course of a few weekends.

Everything ached.

I couldn't do that for a living...

This is completely incorrect. Working harder does demand more pay, if for nothing else, simply because of supply and demand. If there are two jobs that require the same mental skill, but one is hugely demanding on the body, an easy majority of people will choose the less demanding one if they pay the same. So hard, physical labour jobs do deserve more pay according to what the market bares.
