  • Finley’s new EI rules: 'We want McDonald’s to hire Canadians, not foreigners' | Canadian Association of Labour Media
    s presentation Too many jobs she argued are going to temporary foreign workers when there are qualified Canadians sitting at home taking EI She wants Canadians to know that making sure Canadians not foreigners get the jobs that are available is one of the main reasons for these changes still not precisely spelled out to EI But the NDP s Finance Critic Peggy Nash points out that there is complete cognitive dissonance here The government has just recently loosened the rules governing employers who want to import foreign workers It has shortened the approval period from three months to two weeks and it will now allow employers to pay foreign workers up to 15 per cent less than the prevailing rate for Canadian workers Minister will have unlimited power to make new rules without consulting Parliament or Canadians As Nash sees it the government is not trying to help the unemployed connect to the labour market it is making scapegoats out of them The NDP s critic happily commends one aspect of Finley s announcement on EI the government s plan to provide the unemployed with more information on available jobs on a more frequent basis However Nash points out that there are six unemployed Canadians for each available job and the government has not proposed anything constructive in the way of retraining or skills upgrading for the unemployed In addition the NDP Opposition underscores the fact that the massive Budget legislation will give the Human Resources Minister untrammelled and unilateral powers to change the EI rules or create new ones at any time The new regulations the Minister described in vague and general terms on Thursday could be quite different six months from now As Nash sees it the purpose of Thursday s announcement is not really to inform the public of the government s intentions with regard to EI If the government were interested in engaging with the Canadian public it would table the EI changes as separate legislation and allow Parliament to deal with it thoroughly That would include committee hearings and witnesses We ll have none of that however EI changes will remain a small piece of the Trojan Horse Bill C 38 Are some Conservatives getting nervous about EI changes Nash suspects that what Finley is really trying to do is calm the waters for anxious Conservative Members across the country who have obviously been getting an earful of anger from their constituents Just ask British Columbia MP David Wilks He told a group of constituents that like them he is not happy with the Budget Bill certainly not with the bundling together of so many disparate legislative measures In fact he intimated that he might be willing to vote against Bill C 38 if he were to be joined by thirteen other Conservatives But he cautioned such a gesture on his part would be futile if he tried it alone This is a money bill Wilks tried to explain to his constituents meaning it
