Forty years ago, Canadians enjoyed one of the most comprehensive systems of unemployment insurance in the world. In the early 1970s, 96% of Canadian of workers were covered by the program. Cutbacks of the last 20 years have reduced that coverage and made fewer workers eligible for benefits. New research by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives shows that Inner City and Aboriginal workers have suffered most from the changes. Lynne Fernandez, is a research associate with the CCPA and she joined Mud and Water in the studio.
