Employment Income – Disability Assistance Recipients

What a way to kick a family when they are down. I could understand if they’re earning $100,000/year but with lack of affordable housing, an unlivable minimum wage of $10.85, lack of full time jobs, and income assistance rates forcing individuals, children, and families to live thousands below the poverty line, this is just another injustice to families struggling to survive.

Note: Clients must report all qualifying income (earned income or WCB temporary wage loss replacement payments) they receive every month by completing a Monthly Report Form (HR0081) or “stub”. [For more information on reporting requirements, see Related Links – Monthly Reporting Requirement.]
