MLA wants EI changes
The MLA for Southwest Miramichi - Bay du Vin is taking the federal government to task over issues surrounding Employment Insurance.
In a release, Jake Stewart says season workers in his riding are facing financial trouble because their benefits will run out months before they begin working again.
EI rates are tied to the unemployment rate in your economic zone. As the unemployment rate drops, so do the weeks of benefits available.
Stewart is encouraging residents to contact their local MP to express their concerns.
