Ashton calls on Government to Improve EI Access

Ottawa - Today in the House of Commons MP Niki Ashton called on the Government to expand EI immediately.

"The economy is slowing but only 38% of Canadians who lose their jobs are getting EI." said Ashton.

"Instead of speeches to millionaires in Switzerland, Canadians want to see real action. Will the government expand access to EI immediately by creating a universal threshold of 360 hours?"
