Is this a fake story to stir up debate to increase the minimum wage? Too many magik numbers to ignore.
Is faking stories just easier than finding a real person to conduct an interview? I am sure there are real hard-luck stories. Is it too expensive to have real reporters go do real work? Is the media that controlled or broke or both?
Upon further reflection, the reason is clear. When you fabricate a story, you can control all aspects of it. You can make every piece fit. You don’t need permission to manipulate the numbers, the inputs or the outputs. You retain total control of the message. This, of course, is the main lesson to be learned from the 9/11 deception. Thesis + antithesis = synthesis. Control the first two variables, and you get the desired sum. It’s your equation!
Once more I ask: is faking stories for a noble reason, a noble lie, allowable? The answer of course is no. We cannot allow a media to lie to us at any time for any reason.
For now, we must continue to ignore the media. Only then will they get the message.
Since moving to Canada from Bangladesh as a refugee in 2002, 33-year-old Acsana Fernando has not been able to earn much more than the minimum wage.
Her usual monthly take-home pay after taxes is between $1,100 and $1,300, she says.
Fernando says she can’t afford to pay $133.75 at the start of the month for a bus pass,
Life was even harder a few years back. She needed to save $33,000 to sponsor her father coming to Canada,
When she has the time, she also tries to volunteer for a Catholic charity and a labour group called the Workers Action Centre, which helped her father when he injured himself working at a restaurant in Toronto.
