One-quarter of Canadians say they would agree to take less money home from their pay cheque for more time with family and an investment in the environment, according to the fourth annual ADP Payday Poll.

Four in ten Canadians would be willing to take a 20-per-cent pay cut if it meant they could spend 20 per cent more time with family. However, just three in 10 boomers would make such an trade-off, compared to 53 per cent of young adults aged 18 to 29.

One-half of respondents say they would consider donating 10 per cent of their pay cheques to ensure a cleaner environment for their grandchildren, including 43 per cent of those 50 and older and 65 per cent of those 18 to 29.
