Mr. Speaker, in a pandemic, Canadians need honest and specific answers.
Last week, I asked the Minister of Employment to explain why more than 154 workers from Mégantic—L'Érable, whose employer decided to use the work-sharing program, had only been paid 50% of their salary for five months. We heard some general comments, but no answers. Today, I am asking the Prime Minister.
Does he think it is right that Canadians who chose to return to work rather than receive the CERB are penalized and are not paid what the government owes them?
