Where is the prospering Nova Scotia economy? I look on teh job sites and I see so many jobs at fast food, retail etc that don't pay enough to live.

I have a job that "pays well" according to most people yet once I pay student debt (min payments, not even repaying the actual loan, so none of this "once its paid off you'll be fine".. since I cant even get to the principal) I am poor. I cant afford a movie, I can not afford healthy food, I can not afford even the sales racks at clothing stores, so I wear second hand clothes to this "well paying job". I worked my ass off for a uni degree and now I have nothing. Our government says this is the land of opportunity.. it sure is if you want to work at wendy's or montannas or any other minimum wage place.

I tried having a second job, then when tax time came aroudn they took back 98 percent of the money I made at the second job, and screwed me even worse.

I simply give up on Nova Scotia... I'm goign to make a "Alberta Bound" sign on the back of my diploma from SMU and kiss this economic shit hole good bye.
