We would like to keep that quiet so that we don't have a massive influx of immigrants.

When I was a kid Boxing Day was the day you stayed home and family and friends visited you OR your family bundled up and went and visited family and friends. NOBODY and I mean NOBODY went shopping. Another holiday taken over by the relentless capitalist machine to get us to spend money on crap --- very successful in CanaDaDa (Im afraid to say). - Don Mybie

Too bad he had no children. Maybe that's what makes us different than you. You have no one to work for.

It is probably a good thing. Otherwise there would most probably be one more multi generation welfare family.

The Mode ( https://www.purplemath.com/modules/meanmode.htm ) average wage is about $35,000/year or about $18/hour. The Mean average is about $56,000/year or about $27/hour.
According to StatsCan, the top 10% of Canadians made an average income of $134,900, with the top 5% making one third more ($179,800) and the top 1% almost triple that amount ($381,300). Meanwhile, the bottom 90% had an average income of $28,000.

I think buying power is a more significant factor than wage averages. Even at 28 thou, most people are struggling to get by.

Those figures are from 2010 , so the average wages will be higher now . But the figures are spread over many groups and wages are not the only sources of income .

So by their reckoning construction workers are in the top 10%. Most of the rest would be bureaucraps of one stripe or another.

The last I heard, construction was a seasonal job. $135K for a few months out of the year is pretty good.

You heard wrong. Or you live in the wrong place. Not talking about building houses. You will remain poor doing that. Heavy construction work never stops. The TBM job I was working on last year isn't even stopping for Christmas. Even had a shift change on Christmas day.

Most construction workers pay that into Income tax yearly right off their paychecks Cliffy

$135 K is still high pay even for heavy machine operators. https://www.payscale.com/research/CA...or/Hourly_Rate
