Canadians Richer Than Their Parents Were: ADP Payday Poll
Future Generations Expected To Be Richer Still; Albertans Most Optimistic
http://www.newswire.ca/en/releases/archive/September2004/13/c8743.html?view=print
TORONTO, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - Despite ongoing reports of high housing prices, wage freezes and interest rate hikes, the ADP Payday Poll conducted by Environics Research Group shows that the majority of adult Canadians (61%) say they're better off financially than their parents were at the same age. Just 16% believe they're worse off than their parents were, and two in ten (19%) feel their financial situation is about the same. The ADP Payday Poll coincides with The Canadian Payroll Association's National Payroll Week, which starts today.
"Even though it often seems like our paycheques are being squeezed in a vice, the ADP Payday Poll tells us that the majority of Canadians feel the vice's grip is looser for them than it was for their parents," said Rod Dobson, President of ADP Canada.
Payday for the next generation?
Looking forward to the next generation, the ADP Payday Poll reveals the following:

  • Four in ten (41%) adult Canadians say the next generation will be even better off financially;
  • A quarter of Canadians (24%) think tomorrow's adults will be worse off financially;
  • Three in ten (29%) say the next generation's paycheques will be about the same as they are today;
  • Not surprisingly, those from the soon-to-be debt-free province of Alberta are the most optimistic in the country about the financial future of Canadians. More than half (55%) of all Albertans feel the next generation will be better off financially versus only 17% who feel they will be worse off; and
  • By way of comparison, Quebecers were split on the issue: 27% said the next generation will be better off and 27% said they will be worse off.
