I am beside myself about EI , my girlfriend is on Maternity leave and it's bad enough she's only getting about half of her actual salary every couple of weeks ( which is pathetic in itself ) now that she wants to go back to work ( 1 day a week ) EI is Garnishing money from her for the one day of work ,and it nots like she's making tons of money a day .And now she gets a letter telling her she owes EI well over a hundred dollars because she started back to work a couple of days earlier then she was supposed too.I can't believe the trouble you have to go through just to claim back some of your own damn money , she's been paying into EI for years you wouldn't think you would be treated like this especially since it's Maternity leave. The Goverment is wondering why the birthrate in N.S. is down and young people are being out numbered by old people , and wondering why all the young people are moving away to find better paying jobs and having babies elsewhere all they have to do is have a look at their own pathetic system.Whats funny is she would probably get treated better if she just lied about how much she was working like I am sure plenty of people do and never get questioned or just quit her job went on Welfare and had lots of babies to make the cheques bigger like tons of other lazy asses in this province milking the system making it harder for respectible people to make a living. It's Pathetic .

Paying Into Insurance For Nothing !!
