  • Stop taxing the poor: Introduce a minimum-wage tax credit so those on minimum wage pay no tax.
  • Give parents a break: Create a 75% refundable tax credit for child care costs for children aged 0 - 15 and respect parents by leaving to them the choice of what kind of child care is best for their kids.
