Canadian Economist Frances Woolley on the unfairness of Canadian EI:
A rant about EI premiums
It’s her first job. She paid $105 last year in Employment Insurance premiums. But she worked fewer than 910 hours. So she wouldn’t be eligible to claim EI, even if she was laid off. It’s not fair that she has to pay premiums, but receives no entitlement to benefits in return.
Those (especially those from HK) who want to discuss social welfare, benefits and/or tax system, please make sure you have considered and fully grasped the principle of same duties same rights (which is something I don’t expect the Kongers to be able to understand).
