Join the club. Canadian employers are among the world’s stingiest plus other stories in the daily roundup.

  • What would you do if you found $150? Half of Canadians would save it for a specific purchase while 31% would use it to pay down debt, according to recent poll for Scotiabank. Here’s another neat finding: Money is most often found on the street, not between couch cushions! Check out the infographic below for other interesting tidbits from the study.
