Federal Budget Must Focus On Job Creation, Not More Cutbacks, CAW Cautions
Lewenza called on the government to abandon its ill-advised and punitive EI regulations, which "punish the victims" of unemployment through unprecedented surveillance and relocation requirements.
"There are still 2 million effective unemployed in Canada. The problem is not the attitudes of the jobless; the problem is the lack of jobs. They deserve to be able to access this system when they need it." In 2012 on average, just one in three officially unemployed Canadians could qualify for regular EI benefits, and that number will fall further with the government's new directives.
