Reading articles about higher CPP or RRSP contributions to help your pension is frustrating. They all assume that people with part-time jobs can benefit from these. I pay CPP but will not receive much. I also pay EI but can never collect as I cannot put in enough hours to qualify. RRSP accounts that I was advised by the bank would help me in the future I am now collapsing as I still will not have enough income to pay taxes. Come up with help for the low-wage earners.
