38 Views no discussions Share Sharing is caring! Tweet LifestyleRelationships Ladies should make their own money in case of a divorce by: – October 4, 2011 Share Share Image via steakpinball/FlickrIn Massachusetts, it used to be that a man could marry a woman, divorce her three years later, have no children, and still owe her alimony for the rest of his life, even if she remarried. Now it’s capped. And good riddance to it, too.The fact is, a woman is just as capable of getting back on her feet, getting a job, and living her life after a divorce as a man is. The idea that she needs a lifetime of his money is sexist.Of course, there are exceptions. Women who have been married a long time, have children, and put their career on the shelf in order to raise those kids need an economic boost to get back on their feet. But the answer is actually simple: Don’t do that.I was a stay-at-home mom for three years, so I am certainly well-versed in the reasons to stay home with a child. But the fact is, it did put my husband and me in an imbalance.Every time I wanted to buy a pair of shoes, I had to ask him. I didn’t have my own money. It was “household money,” sure. And he rarely played the “I make the money” card. But he had it to play.As women, it’s silly to pretend like divorce can’t happen to us. And when a woman has a child, her earning potential goes down significantly just because of that fact alone. So why would she voluntarily give up what little money she makes, too?There are ways to be involved with a child and still make a little money on the side. It doesn’t have to be all or nothing. A woman can teach a night course or work from home or work part-time. There are many, many options that don’t equal daycare and a full-time job. But this idea that families can survive on one income alone and the man should be the breadwinner and provide for a woman and his children for the entire course of her life is a little 1950s.Sure, alimony is needed to help a woman get back on her feet after devoting herself to her family to help her husband develop his career or finish his school, etc. Every divorce is complicated and individual. But the cases in which “lifetime alimony” is needed are likely few and far between.In the end, even in a marriage, we are responsible for ourselves and keeping our skills fresh. It’s hard to claim victim-hood 20 years after a four-year marriage ends. Marriage isn’t foolproof. It’s important to keep skills fresh and is just as much his responsibility as hers.Do you think lifetime alimony is outdated?Written by Sasha Brown-Worsham on CafeMom’s blog, The Stir

“We are pleased to announce these contract awards, solidifying our position as the partner of choice for workforce accommodation solutions in Canada,” said Bradley J. Dodson, Civeo’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “The strength of our First Nation relationships was critical to these awards, and we look forward to collaborating with our partners to provide best-in-class accommodations along the Coastal GasLink pipeline project. Along with our recent acquisition of Noralta Lodge, this contract is a testament to our continued growing presence across Canada.”Civeo said it expects to deploy approximately $10 million in capital across all four facilities, the locations of which haven’t been announced. HOUSTON, T.X. – Houston-based Civeo Corporation announced today that it has been awarded contracts to supply accommodations for four locations along the Coastal GasLink pipeline project.The project will see a roughly 670-kilometre pipeline built from the Dawson Creek area to the proposed LNG Canada facility near Kitimat. The contracts are subject to a positive final investment decision from the LNG Canada joint venture, which is expected later this year.Civeo said that the accommodation facilities are collectively expected to reach total peak room count of over 2,000, with revenue over the term of the contract expected to be approximately $100 million. The company says that it will partner with a First Nation for each facility.
VANCOUVER, B.C. – The B.C. Government has introduced 53 childcare facilities that will prototype affordable childcare for parents yet none of these facilities were chosen in the Peace Region.The program has the childcare providers receiving operational and administrative costs from Government funding, and in return, the care provider will reduce parents fees to a maximum of $200 per month for full-time enrollment during regular hours.Introducing prototype sites is the next big step for a 10-year ChildCare BC plan which will model what affordable universal childcare might look like for B.C. families. Parents of 2,500 children will benefit from being funded under the Early Learning and Child Care Agreement with the Government of Canada. These prototype sites were selected after an application process starting in June 2018, at first facilities with infant and toddler space were given priority and then and eligibility was expanded to other types of childcare although prototype sites had been selected to represent the diversity of B.C’s geography, population and program types. They also reflect a range of operational models, including both non-profit and private organizations and yet no facilities in the Peace region, were chosen or included in this program.“The Government of Canada believes that early learning and child care services should be affordable for all families,” said Jonathan Wilkinson, Member of Parliament for North Vancouver and Minister of Fisheries, Oceans, and the Canadian Coast Guard. “Today’s announcement is a big step towards ensuring that children get the best start in life and in delivering better high-quality and affordable childcare for families across British Columbia.”“We are finding new ways to make it easier for families to get by every month and to save for the future,” said Premier John Horgan. “Through this kind of action, where we significantly reduce the cost of child care, we can make life more affordable for so many B.C. families.”The closest option of financial support for Parents in the Peace Region is the Affordable Child Care Benefit. The ACCB provides up to $1,250 per child a month for families with an annual income of $111,000 or less.Families using licensed child care may also see savings through the Child Care Fee Reduction, which has so far helped to reduce the cost of almost 52,000 child care spaces throughout the province.
EDMONTON, A.B. – Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says she won’t bring in a sales tax, a health premium or a payroll tax and will wait until closer to the provincial election to outline further details.“Stay tuned for the rest of it,” Notley said Friday.She wouldn’t say whether she will propose changes to the progressive income tax her NDP brought in to replace the former government’s flat tax. Kenney has promised to abolish the carbon tax as his first order of business should his party form government. He says it is a punitive tax on workers and families with no demonstrable benefit in reducing greenhouse gas emissions.Kenney has assailed the carbon tax as a symbol of an interventionist, misguided NDP that decided to increase fees on Albertans during an economic downturn.Kenney has not revealed specifics of his party’s tax platform. The rank and file voted last year to bring back the flat tax on income, but Kenney has said he has not decided if he will go along with that.He wants to see this year’s budget to get a better handle on the province’s money situation, but has said the overall goal needs to be reducing taxes on employers and families. “What I will say now is that we are committed to maintaining the tax advantage that low- and middle-income, middle-class Albertans currently enjoy.”Notley’s government axed Alberta’s 10 percent income flat tax and increased the levy on high-income earners shortly after the New Democrats won the 2015 election.Her government also increased the corporate tax to 12 percent from 10 percent and reduced the small business tax to two percent from three.The NDP also brought in a carbon tax on gasoline and home and business heating tied to fossil fuels. Rebates are made to low- and middle-income families.Tax policy, the economy, and how best to boost the oil and gas industry are expected to dominate the election, which must by law be held sometime in March, April or May.Both Notley and Jason Kenney’s Opposition United Conservatives are focusing on tax policies as economic issues, but also as broader symbols of what they call their opponent’s fundamental failings. Notley said returning to the flat tax would only benefit high-income earners and the suggestion is symbolic of a UCP she says is run by and for well-heeled insiders.“I’m not interested in giving a $700-million tax cut to the top one percent of Albertans,” she said.Notley said Alberta already has an estimated $11-billion year tax advantage or better compared with other provinces.Alberta also has multibillion-dollar deficits that both the UCP and the NDP say will take about four years to bring back to balance.“Everyone wants us to get to a balanced budget so that what we’re doing is sustainable,” Notley said.“So when you make tax cuts (as Kenney suggests), what you have to do then is … pull back from services in order to maintain that path to balance.”Notley is also accusing the UCP of pushing back-door taxes by having Kenney discuss user-pay infrastructure. She said that can only mean road tolls, which would punish businesses and families.The United Conservatives have responded by saying the NDP has left the province in a deep financial hole and it’s imperative to look at other revenue options to fund “needed industrial infrastructure.”The party says it has never suggested putting tolls on “existing public infrastructure.”
