Check-out this really neat interactive site on income inequality. I’m earning more than $17, 000 less than the average person like myself. I’m also earning more than $22, 000 less than what I could be if wages had grown with productivity (based on American figures). I’d love to see a Canadian counterpart to this site!

If you’re wondering what this has to do with nutrition… Did you know that income is the number one factor affecting food security? Healthy food tends to be one of the first expenses to go to the way-side when money is tight.
