Grassroots, according to the 2006 census, 25.1%, or 102,180 out of 407,590 (15 years or older) people living in Hamilton were without any type of educational certificate/diploma, including high school/trades.

In contrast, only 15.8%, or 20,930 out of 132,695 Burlington residents (15 or older) were without any formal educational certificate/diploma.

Perhaps one of the mandatory requirements of accepting welfare should be to attain a high school equivalency. If the welfare recipients of Hamilton were forced to study and learn in order to receive taxpayer assistance, perhaps they would have less need for these handouts altogether.
