    Hey, Thanks
    Anachronistic is a Greek word anyway. So, it was easy for me to use it, as I know the exact meaning of it.

    Can you really get a job that easily then? If so, how. And please give tips because I might need them.

    Alberta is booming, which is why we are attracting all of the scum from across North America, scum that follows the gold rush no matter where or what it is, and wants to pocket a quick buck before leaving town... all the better if it's at somebody's expense. "I haven't been paid yet" is now officially a legitimate excuse for a contractor to give an employee not really but some of them act that way.

    In your situation it is probably a sole proprietorship, amrite? You need adequate cash reserves to accommodate the 30 day accrual period or else insolvent... not much to complain about there. It's the same here with framing contracts .. I understand they have to wait a while but it doesn't mean I should have to sacrifice.

    Hmm well I live in Alberta and have identified Ontario as the epicenter of this plague in the Canadian construction industry.. however these things don't happen as much to employees in commercial settings; the contractors themselves are more likely to get burned in a situation such as this, where there are multiple levels of subcontractors above them. Residential is the environment I work in and that is where the most likely victims are the employees themselves. People regularly work for 1-2 weeks expecting pay and then don't receive it on time but still feel pressured to work more or else face the implicit threat they won't be paid at all.

    I used the wrong word. What I said about "simplify" was a joke... here is the explanation:

    "dude... simplify" is what this guy says:

    and the whole point is it's illogical as fuck, in context.

    Yes, shady dealings are a major problem. I deal with them every week. I am dealing with one today.

    I didn't consider the "recharging" aspect of things: nice contribution.

    Kind of. I feel confident in saying that they're more racist than the white people around here.

    Currently I'm in Brantford, but I'll be moving to Brampton (aka Brown Town). It'll have similar demographics to Mississauga so I'll be happy.

    I'd have gone with evolutionary refinement: Men have more often been subject to "Didn't obey your lord? Die! Didn't take care of your horse when your lord told you to? Die! "

    ... Obviously that didn't happen everywhere and to all groups, but men I think have generally had less flexibility allowed to them... Even lower levels of undependability like "Not consistently making money or being able to provide" might have gotten you kicked out of the gene pool... Thus even now, men prioritize jobs over feelings.

    I'm an islander born and raised but I've been living on the mainland for 10 years now, er, 11. I go back every couple weeks though to see my parents I'm currently nestled in Coquitlam and it's pretty nice

    It was 3am for me when I posted. I live in China. I'm pretty friggin' impressed with myself that I only messed up one apostrophe, during all my posting this early morning.

    Tyranny by government is less of a risk if there's less government. You have to realize that forcing people into situations where they must "vote with their feet" is about the same as encouraging them to attempt to "vote with their guns". Therefore, you know this "you can always leave" arguement is just a cop out. It's like saying you can always kill yourself if you don't like life. It's not a practical or moral argument. If you take an action that you'd expect a negative response to as an indivdual, there's no magic when involving this thing called a government where you shouldn't expect a negative response as well. Violence begets violence as so on. The answer is to have a non-violent approach, not to attempt to legitimize violence.

    So the 50.1% can murder the 49.9% in a democracy, because they might have agreed to work together under the law in the past? The violence is legitimate? If you're not willing to accept the large crime, what makes you accept the smaller ones?
