David Berner: BC ACORN member Monica McGovern on ending the clawback!

ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now) and the B.C. Federation of Labour combined efforts recently in getting the provincial government to rescind their decision to claw back child support payment to people on disabilities. This was a rare and major achievement for poverty advocacy groups. The two organizations now continue their efforts to raise the minimum wage in B.C. from $10.25/hr to $15.
