Saint John MP Defends EI Changes

Saint John MP Rodney Weston is throwing his support behind the Federal government's upcoming changes to employment insurance.

He tells CHSJ News the changes are not only reasonable but necessary as the program needs to be fiscally balanced.

The changes, which will go into effect in 2013, will require workers to take lower paying jobs in their field or even jobs in other sectors if they frequently receive EI payments.

He says there is a lot of misinformation out there and criticism has been premature.
