Are there some people who take advantage of the 'system'? Of course. But are there those who struggle? Yes, and it isn't by choice.
i think ur rebuttle is a bit harsh. there is nothing wrong with that line. its econ 101, people are greedy and economics IS about incentives. and he didn't talk in absolutes. he said an individual is less likely IF unemployement benefits were extended. bringing up knowing people currently one EI has nothing to do with this
