Canadians are swimming in debt!

Recommended Posts

oh yea this is a taboo in our community here in canada. though many own houses some of us though we dont like to admit it are living pay cheque to pay cheque coupled with ageing parents who need looking after but many of us have fallen down the social mobility ladder and are stuck at dead end jobs like  warehouse uber security cleaner etc and these are the children of immigrant punjabis who are canadian born.

I dont think many of uk ppl are aware of this because in canada it is seen as apneh are more high class or upper class but that is just a small and vocal minority there are is a silent minority of us regardless of caste who are livining in hard times

Really? Aren't the Punjabi Sikhs in Canada one of the wealthiest ethnic demographics?

It is said that the millenial generation is going to be poorer than their parent's generation. 

This is going to be the first generation in recent history for this to be the case.

The complete irony of the Boomer unparhh generation being able afford their homes with good pensions and their padhe likheh bacheh not being able to.

The unparhh generation worked hard so that kids don't have to struggle but inadvertently the kids may not have a good retirement. 

Proper messed up.

The elders inadvertently instilled a materialist and consumerist ethic into their children, but without an economic environment to nurture such aspirations, the offspring possess the same, and in most cases, an even higher unquenchable desire for "things" minus any conceivably satisfactory method of obtaining those things. It won't end well. While we aren't too far behind here in the UK, North-American Sikh ostentatiousness and bravado is going to destroy lives.

The benefits that boomers (probably Gen X as well) had over millenials:

- Higher interest rates that provided better savings rates

- Higher interest rates plus only being allowed to borrow 4 times your income which fed into less inflated houseprices, therefore affordable housing.

- Final salary pensions. 

- If you went to University you had your fees paid and a grant maintenance on top of that.

-Employment for life/job security.

    • Update they have not banned them Hindu have strong lobby   
    • https://www.nationalheraldindia.com/india/australian-senator-flags-issue-of-violence-by-extremist-right-wing-hindu-nationalists   They desperately want to seethe us and tarnish our reputation, so they can play 'victim' and any chance to scream 'Sikh extremism'  This is why we need to be careful, DONT SCOOP to their level and instead play by law and order and get them BANNED ! If we confront or take matter our own hands (which they want) then we lost like they did 80s 90s...need to be smart.  
    • We're drawn to honest physical labour despite being devious and calculating in our own social groups, yet if we were truly intelligent we would bypass the blue collar grafting, and want to head the various trucking unions and dependent organisations in white collar environments. In our case, every successive generation of immigrants start at the bottom instead of building on the efforts and sacrifices of the previous generations. There's a mentality of, "I suffered when I first came here, so why shouldn't they?" This creates a culture and ethic that remains firmly rooted in the same social dynamic with every generation. An intelligent community uplifts its own by creating opportunities for advancement. We seem to relish seeing our own facing adversity and having to struggle. Fundamentally, that's why we'll never achieve anything of note.
    • Politics, cricket and Bollywood is a form of escapism in India 
    • I think it comes down to the fact that most Indians are simple minded and rural. Most of them have nothing interesting going on in their lives, many living miserable wretched lives.  That's why Politics, Bollywood and Cricket are so big in that country. These three things give them a purpose in their empty rural lives, like a fantasy world. When India wins a cricket match, every Indian, including slum dwellers feel that they've just won something. Its the same with politics. I've been India during the voting season, and they go crazy as if the results of the elections are a personal family dispute. Telling the simple minded Hindu who walks to the fields to take a dump, that BJP will change India, save it from Islam and make Pakistan a part of India by 2025 and that his vote matters, gives the Hindu a purpose! it makes him feel he is a part of something. Its the same with Bollywood, it gives them a purpose, takes them away from miserable India and into a fantasy world with seductive women, flying cars, superheroes saving the damsel in distress. When Aishwarya Rai put on weight after having a baby, she was supposed to attend the Cannes film festival in southern France and Indians were saying how she's ruing India's image with her big size, letting India down on the world stage etc   It just shows you how empty these peoples lives must be!  Surely India has bigger things to worry about than an overweight middle aged actress attending a film festival in France?  But no!  Bollywood gives these people a purpose in life that's why they take it so personally. Remember whenever the Indian cricket team used lose a match, Indians used start throwing bricks through their bungalows lol ? Indians used feel that they personally lost something in life, like a deep wound. Its because they have nothing going in their miserable lives!  Its the same with politics. Its gives them a purpose, something to look forward to, they feel like they are a part of the change. Telling a Hindu that India and Hinduism is under threat and that his support matters, gives the Hindu a purpose.  That's why the Indian government will always keep its population the way it is, they are really easy to control and that's just where the government wants them to be.
