The basic thrust is that Toronto’s economic recovery since the recession has been very uneven. If you were a blue-collar goods-producing worker, you may have lost your job.
If you found one again, it’s probably a much-lower-paying gig in the service sector, possibly only part-time.
These economic forces turning Toronto into a city of haves and have-nots and sending the demand for social services skyrocketing will be a major issue for whoever is elected mayor after Monday’s vote.
Let me know what you think.
