I don't think it will come as a shock to anyone reading this when I say that the job situation in Toronto is looking pretty dismal right now. With the minimum wage increasing to $14/hour at the start of 2018, the job market is starting to change drastically and, though it's pretty clear it probably won't be for the better, it's still unclear just how bad it will get. 

Finding a job in a massive city like Toronto that actually pays well, gives you good hours and respectable benefits has always been hard to come by. Plus, when you add in the ever-rising cost of living in the city it can be very overwhelming to look for decent employment. 

While the definition of a "well-paying job" is hard to nail down right now, for the purposes of this article I found that a lot of Torontonians agreed online that $50,000+ per year is a decent wage to live off of.
