I have been looking for work for a few months now and also applied for EI at the beginning of November. This has been a tedious process and I really don't understand why? I wasn't fired, I did not quit, I have NEVER applied for any type of government assistance in my life and am only doing so now while avidly looking for work daily.
I've paid my taxes, paid contributions out of every pay cheque for all of my working life. Why is it that those who abuse the system get assistance so easily and those who pay into it and use it maybe once in a lifetime get shafted by the system?
How has your experience been with it?
