Pat Martin is a not a fan of Hardcore Pawn

The NDP MP tweets his thoughts on pawn shops and payday loans.

Let’s be clear, Pawn shops are loathsome parasites exploiting the misery of the poor. TV shows that glamorize them are despicable.

Pay day loans and pawn shops are a scourge on the inner city…make charter banks live up to their mandate and provide financial services.

Every vacant store in strip malls gets filled with another PayDay lender because there is no greater return than preying on human misery.
