MP ASHTON CALLS ON LIBERAL GOVERNMENT TO END EI BLACK HOLE FOR SEASONAL WORKERS

After the Conservative government gutted EI, Liberals have promised to improve it, but as we have seen all too often, the Liberal government has failed to deliver on their promises. Their mismanagement of EI is prematurely cutting seasonal workers off EI, leaving them without income for weeks, all while creating a $2 billion dollar hole in the program. Atlantic Canadians need action. It’s time for this Liberal government to put their money where their mouth is and extend the EI benefit period for all seasonal workers.
