Can you give us an example of how this money will be made up (or scan a wage slip for us to look at), thanks.

I'm sure there will be some families willing to pack up and move over for those promised earnings

Northboy why have you taken the rent off the net take home pay???

Your figure's are still wrong,deduction's are nearer to +30%,Mine last year ran at 33%,The exchange rate at the moment is around $1.63 6years ago it was around $2.10,As the exchange rate does not come into it so why are you working this out??.

I think the point being made Northboy is that you are making the fatal mistake of converting everything in GBP. The Canadian dollar goes a lot further than the pound and you get a lot more for your money. Until you stop converting it back into GBP you will never truly get a grip on the value of moving and working here. If its any consolation, we do the same when food shopping at Walmart. It's very easy to walk round converting everything over and thinking 'wow, that's really expensive' but it's all relative when you think for example a loaf of bread here is about $3 or £2 a loaf BUT if you're making $2000-$2500 bi weekly it's at least double what you'd make back home so the costs become relative to earnings - STOP CONVERTING THE CURRENCY - trust me it makes all the difference :-)

My point is that DH is saying you can earn CDN 2,400 A WEEK! People will be seeing Loony signs and packing their bags to come over now, but I don't believe the figure, so as DH is ignoring me, does anyone have proof of those CDN 100,000 plus earning?

if thats the case.if any one wanted to pack up and go back to UK god knows why, surely your little nest egg would be at the UK exchange rate ???? but i get where you are coming from with the CDN ,YES you may get more for the dollar over there. the rent is taken off after your tax is taken off your top line , which is your yearly wage. give or take a few hundred dollars giving the tax at 28%/33% tax rate .unless you don't pay rent but if you do it must come out of your wagers at some point. hence

I'm not ignoring anyone I just don't get carried away on here
If you do Winnipeg and back 5 days a week it's 2400 a week I can't show you a wage slip because I don't do Winnipeg it doesn't suit me unlike lots on here I'm not here in Canada just to make money I take home 2400 a fortnight and that's fine for me
But if you work for loblaw pulling pykes to winnipeg 5 days a week 2400 you earn a week

You`re not actually driving into Winnipeg every night but swapping pikes over before you reach that point but as DH says you can make this sort of money at Loblaws due to the way the wage is structured.
