First off, if you are man, Swedish, French, American, British, you have to learn how to smooch and booze with those hot Swedish women. Second, it seems that foreign men in Sweden have an advantage over the Swedish men. Here’s what Swedish women think of Swedish men: After reading all these comments you must think, “damn, how do Swedish men and women mate and have lots of babies?” I wonder that too, and I’ll put the blame on the dark swedish winter and the bright swedish summer.
In 1997, one in 40 Ontario workers was working for minimum wage. That's according to a new study from the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, which found low-wage jobs in Canada’s largest province have been growing at a pace that is more than three times as fast as overall job growth since 1997.
It has detailed analysis of the economics of interstellar trade, and a system of equations to model trade routes and economic demands.
Sometimes the traders live in large "clan-ships", developing a "trader culture." Each ship is a world, carrying the entire clan. Novels including this include CITIZEN OF THE GALAXY by Robert Heinlein, STAR WAYS aka THE PEREGRINE by Poul Anderson, the Cities in Flight novels of James Blish, MERCHANTER'S LUCK and FINITY'S END by C. Cherryh, RITE OF PASSAGE by Alexi Panshin, A DEEPNESS IN THE SKY by Vernor Vinge.
While the total number of jobs in Ontario grew by 30 per cent over the past 17 years, the number of low-wage jobs (defined as paying an hourly rate within four dollars of the minimum wage) grew by 94 per cent, the study found.
It found that 1.7 million Ontarians now work in low-wage jobs, amounting to 30 per cent of the province’s labour force.
As recently as 2001, only 16.5 per cent of Ontarians had low-wage jobs.
