Generation Squeeze

There is a silent generational crisis occurring in the homes of Canadians…Generation Squeeze.  Double-income families in the present have the same household income as those from the mid-1970s yet they have double the costs of living.  Not only are today’s families struggling financially but they are also spread thin for time.  In addition to employers, elderly family members and children are demanding of a young couple’s or single parent’s free time.  Paul Kershaw, a scholar for the Human Early Learning Partnership, proposes a $22-billion investment on Canada’s standard of living in his full page article, “We need a Canada that works for all generations,” in Monday, April 5th, 2011’s Vancouver Sun.  Read it now and get in the know for our upcoming federal election!
