Good move. Employers can afford it and the extra cash will be spent, which will help the economy.

How much tax did you pay to earn that refund?

Homelessness is becoming a significant problem, particularly for the young and the old. Youth unemployment is still high at 12.6% (April 2018) while older people face age discrimination when seeking work. Meanwhile, those who have low-paying jobs struggle to meet the costs of rent and utilities and other essential living expenses.

We have been brainwashed into thinking that life is all about the economy rather than society and are rapidly losing our sense of compassion and social justice.
