While Stephen Harper defends Minister Finley's intimidation of seasonal workers thousands across Canada rally against EI reform.
I have said it before and I will say it again these 'Tea Party" idiots are out of touch with the real world.
How does a fisheries worker or a lumber worker find alternative employment in a depressed area where most or all part time work is taken. Really fellow Canadians do these Conservative idiots really expect local companies to layoff a part time employee to engage a part time employee?
You talk about being out of touch with the pulse of Canada .... and I thought the NDP had filled their roster with unqualified people .... the Conservative Reform Alliance Party is far worse.
And to exasperate the problem of civil servants from EI knocking on doors each of them has a quota of $485,000 dollars per year to meet in fraudulent EI abusers. It raises an ugly probability that should one civil servant be running short of their quota .... will some poor needy EI recipient be railroaded?
Finley told Mulcair that EI investigators do have performance objectives but she says there's a big difference between targets and quotas.
Ditsy Diane can call it what she wants but when one must meet a dollar amount or a performance objective ..... it is a quota.
