we'll follow the footsteps of those on their way and we'll ask for the right to leave or to stay

Unemployment benefits harder to get on Cape Breton.

Okay, let me get this straight:

  • 1)The unemployment rate is high, so people leave to get jobs. This makes the numbers go down.

  • 2)When that happens, the number of hours required to work to be eligible for unemployment benefits goes UP.

  • 3)When that happens, more people leave, so the rate goes down even more.

  • 4)Go to step 2, lather, rinse, repeat.

Vicious cycle much, Canada?

I could be totally off, here. It happens.

And not that it's my place to say anything, because it's totally not. Erm?
