The article presents information related to Canada. Canada's top corporate executives received a whopping average compensation of $5.5 million in 2004, a 57-percent gain over 2003. The proportion of Canadian workers employed in low-paying jobs has changed little from what it was back in 1981. Once working for low pay, only half will move up to better-paying jobs in five years. According to a new study published in the "Canadian Medical Association Journal," status Indians are nearly four times as likely to experience serious injuries and are twice as likely to die from them, as non-Natives.
