That’s why we have Employment Insurance—to give us some peace of mind on the road to finding new work.
EI is an insurance plan that we Canadians pay into our entire working lives.
But Ottawa keeps finding new ways to reject your EI claim. In fact, six in 10 Canadians can no longer qualify for benefits.
And now Stephen Harper says he’ll cancel your benefits unless you take any job he deems “suitable.” Even if it takes you off the career path you’ve invested in. And even if it comes with a 30% pay cut and an hour-long commute.
He’s even setting quotas for bureaucrats to kick more people off EI.
Enough is enough.
for fair Employment Insurance
We the undersigned residents of Canada note the following:
Therefore, we call upon the Government of Canada to reverse the devastating changes it has made to EI and restore fair access to decent EI benefits for jobless workers.
