Fix Employment Insurance

Something’s Really Wrong with Workers’ E.I. Safety Net

We Need to Fix EI!

Here are some questions to ask Federal election candidates.

  • We need to start paying attention to the huge cracks in our EI system – or pay the price with the next economic slowdown or recession.
  • Politicians may focus on EI parental or seasonal benefits but the main job of EI is to provide income security when we’re laid off or lose a job.
    We pay weekly EI premiums so the safety net’s there when we need it.
  • EI rules are too harsh, especially for those in part-time and temporary jobs.
