What do you think about people with no dependents not getting a monthly stipend, like people with kids?

    Who gets paid because they have kids?  Canada has a "Family Allowance" that one gets with kids, but, it is a tiny amount.  I don't know of anyone that gets paid more because they have kids.  Certainly the military does not do this!

    Sets a shitty precedent by effectively punishing people without kids while simultaneously encouraging parents to keep having kids they can’t afford and increases the burden on taxpayers, schools and other infrastructure all for a few bucks that won’t even be spent on those kids anyway

    I don't support a monthly stipend for either.

    Society still cares a little bit more about kids.
