MONTREAL – Erendira Achati Keriti needed winter clothes, but she knew she couldn’t afford to buy them new.
She managed to save enough money to buy second-hand garments, only to find they’d already been snapped up by the time she made it back to the thrift store.
Keriti, a 39-year-old Toronto resident, said she struggles financially despite the fact she is employed.
She’s one of a number of low-wage workers who have trouble making ends meet and who believe Canadian provinces need to raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
