    Raise the minimum wage to say $50

    Low cost loan now to fund and waiver for repayment if proof given of subsidy going to workers.



    At the end of it a hefty hike in the minimum wage to help rebalance the economy. Just a thought.
    And th elderly cardboard grannies who don't get a wage?

    So, assuming you are eligible for the 10,000. What exactly are you going to do with it?

    Yes, but that doesn't answer my question, what are you going to do with it?

    BUY, GIVE, SPEND it locally. That's the right thing to do.

    What Mr. Chan should enforce is means to ensure it is spent locally....so even if it is someone returning to get the handout, they spend it here...
    There's no point debating who gets it, who doesn't...

    If you are really struggling to think what to do with it I could provide about 650 meals for the poor with that here. Just let me know.
