How do we get Saskatchewan families out of poverty?
A new report out of the U of R shows that one in 4 children in Saskatchewan are still living in poverty, even some people working full-time jobs are not able to make ends meet. Today we heard from people who are experiencing poverty about what difference a guaranteed basic income would make to their lives, we heard from anti-poverty advocates who are working on food security and advocating for a guaranteed basic income in this province and we heard from the U of R researcher who is drawing attention to the desperate state of affairs facing many Saskatchewan families.
