Harper’s EI reforms set to push workers into poverty, part II

Posted on April 11th, 2013 No comments. The post is really that bad, huh?

I honestly didn’t expect there to be a second part to this saga, but here we are.

In the first part I did some basic math to show that the new EI measures implemented by the Harper government are designed to eventually impoverish anyone who uses the system to supplement slow times in their industry (seasonal workers, construction workers, etc.)

Now it’s been revealed that on top of this measure, the appeals process has been taken in-house so that if you have a problem, who do you complain to? The people who caused it.

The government policing itself? Well that doesn’t sound like it could possibly  have any issues. In fact, it should be so easy that they shouldn’t even need so many people to make it happen.

What's on your mind?
