Stats highlight gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Yukoners

Yukon’s Indigenous people tend to be more well-off than Indigenous people in most of the country, according to 2016 census data. But the numbers also reveal that they tend to make significantly less money than non-Indigenous Yukoners.

    This is not a surprise at all. Native live there because they have always lived there. Non natives likely went there because there was an opportunity to make lots of money and they took it. I suspect that you find the same thing between white people who were born there and white people who moved there from somewhere else.

    In a related topic, I find it typical that the CBC News Network, has Big Chief Pam of the famous Ryerson University tribe as a daily commentator now. This the whiny indian who many indians don’t even like, for her hatred of white people, and her statements about genocide etc.

    There you go, a new social justice cause. The “indigenous pay gap”. And like the other famous pay gap, don’t you dare bring in the statistics on hours worked, type of jobs worked, personal financial choices, etc.
