interesting... lets say one player earns 5,000,000 over the year and 365 days are in a year.... 5,000,000/365 = 13698.63
even doubling the salary to 10 million works out to 27397.26.
the life expectancy in Canada is close to 80.8 years, and for argument sake you "work" from age 20 to 50 (low balling here)
That would mean that you're saying they would earn only 913.24/year
the basic needs poverty line for a household size of 1 person is $10,520 per year
which means that in actuality with any social programs or even bottle collection they should be able to earn more than 913$/year
so in a round about way.....
your post is invalid.

And biggest nerd post of the year goes to....
