CPP, EI hikes hitting Canadian paycheques

Jan, 1st, 2013


Working Canadians can expect a hit to the wallet as they welcome in 2013, mostly in the form of higher payroll deductions.
Besides the bills many people will face from holiday shopping, there will be increases to Canada Pension Plan and Employment Insurance premiums.

According to that article, I will be paying $51.50(EI) + $49.50 (CPP) = $101 ÷ 26 (Pay cheques) = $3.88 every 2 weeks.

I still maintain that EI should be a choice.  If you want to pay into it, then you are covered whether you quit or are fired.  If you opt out and don't pay, and you lose your job, then that was your choice.  To be told you HAVE to pay and then have a hell of a time to get your claim even looked at...it is just wrong IMO.

Question of curiousity, not criticism...

Why is this in the United States section?...

Jesus Christ - Matthew 28:18-20 said:

"All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

That is something that has made me wondered....why is the US so much more important than the rest of North America for this section to be called that?  Why not just North America?  Not trying to start a fight, just curious.

Because the US has the largest overall undeserved ego of the world.
