Corbella: New EI program will be a disaster for Canada and our youth


Jack Mintz, President’s Fellow of the School of Public Policy at the University of Calgary, called the changes “really, really bad policy,” with all kinds of “disastrous” unintended consequences. “The federal Liberals do not care about how much anything costs and it shows,” said Mintz, who was reached in Toronto. “When you make it too easy, it’s not good for society,” says Mintz. “Maybe this is their way of moving towards a guaranteed annual income.” Mintz points out that the “CERB doesn’t discriminate between full and part-time work. So I could be working 10 hours a week and I get the same payment — $2,000 a month — as someone who was working full time. No wonder people don’t want to go back to work.”
