Federal: Stop the Employment Insurance Rip-Off

To Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and the Parliament of Canada.

EI taxes cost a working couple and their employer over $4,000 every single year, yet most of us don’t ever see a dime of this money. Meanwhile, yet many people abuse the system and collect EI every year.

Government programs shouldn’t treat people differently just because of what province they live in or what kind of job they have. EI is nothing but massive wealth transfer from people who work hard every day, year after year, to those willing to abuse the system. Canadians should instead be able to keep their EI taxes in an Employment Insurance Savings Account to be used only when they or a family member loses their job, or upon retirement.

We the undersigned call on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to allow Canadians to keep their EI taxes and end this massive government tax grab.

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
