To the editor:
Dianne Varga has sent the Cap News a very great letter on the state of the EI. (Job Creation Thinking Needs Revision, Dec. 4 Capital News)
I wrote about this a year ago and hope folks are paying attention.
I paid into the money grabbing outfit and did not mind doing so, for 42 years as an OR registered nurse and never once did I collect EI.
I feel fortunate to be able to say that because there are many folks out there who would love to work for a decent wage but the jobs are not available.
Minimum wage will not pay the grocery bill let alone the rent, etc.
Why has the money not been returned to where it belongs in the first place as this money came from the working stiffs and not the government.
It is taken from our pay cheques whether we want it to be or not, so why would they take our money and do what they want with it without our permission?
It’s time we made our government accountable to us.
