I am earning close to $2,500, why is my Workfare Income Supplement (WIS) so low?

To best support lower-wage workers, the WIS benefits are gradually reduced as the income levels of the workers increase nearer to the qualifying amount of $2,500. The gradual reduction ensures that the lower-wage workers do not see a sharp reduction in their WIS benefits when they upgrade their skills and begin to earn more. Taken together, the total amount of the income and the WIS benefits would still increase overall as one's income increases.
