The Worst Paying Jobs In Canada

Last week, we were talking about the most useless University degrees in Montreal and we could see that this was a topic our readers were very interested in. It makes sense after all, you don't want to invest years of your life studying only to wind up in a dead end career. Most people go to university because they know it can lead them to better paying jobs.

Click here for the list of the best paying jobs in Canada.

Well if it's money you're after, we can tell you which career paths to avoid.

These are the lowest paying job in Canada in 2015:

1. Sewing Machine Operator - $19,760

Luckily most of you wouldn't even know where to begin to get this kind of job.

2. Cashier - $20,700

Your only hope is to start a retirement fund by stealing one quarter a day, everyday when no one is watching.

3. Ironing/Pressing - $20,700

Is it any wonder that the most annoying chores also make the worst paying jobs?

4. Artisans - $21,320

I guess that depends on out good your artisanship is. (It's a word, I looked it up.)

5. Bartender - $21,000

The average is probably lower due to all the bartenders who work in crappy bars. Though I'm sure there are plenty of bar tenders that make a good living.

6. Harvesting Labourer - $19,750

What do you expect? This isn't exactly steady work.

7. Service Station Attendant - $19,750

Sorry, but you'll just have to dream a little bigger.

8. Food/Beverage Worker - $22,000

All the bad parts of being a waiter and you don't even make any tips.

9. Food Counter Attendant/Kitchen Staff - $19,750

That's why my high school lunch-lady was always pissed off.

10. Babysitters, nannies, and parent’s helpers - $19,750

Any job a 12 year old is qualified for probably won't be the most lucrative career choice.

More Than 60% Of Montreal Workers Have Returned To The Office, A Survey Says

Working from home isn't out of fashion, however – 76% of respondents still enjoy it.

The number of Montrealers giving up some aspects of "work from home" culture and returning to their workplace at least part of the time has more than doubled since June, according to a new survey by the Montreal Board of Trade in collaboration with Léger.

Montreal Board of Trade President and CEO Michel Leblanc said in a statement that the number of people going back to the office, either full-time or part-time, has climbed from 28% in June, to 47% in August, to 61% in the current survey – which was conducted from October 26 to November 5 of this year.

Mary Simon's approval rating is lower in Quebec compared to the rest of Canada, a poll released Wednesday showed, because the new governor general can't speak French.

An Angus Reid Institute poll of 2,049 Canadians found only 49% of Quebecers approve of her appointment compared to 74% of respondents in the rest of the country.

A startling 46% of seafood samples sold in restaurants and grocery stores in four major Canadian cities were mislabelled, according to a report published Wednesday by the non-profit group Oceana Canada.

Often, low-cost knockoffs were pawned off as fancy fishes; out of a total of 94 samples, all 24 of butterfish, yellowtail and white tuna were mislabelled and over half of the samples labelled snapper was actually tilapia, "a much cheaper" fish.
