I have been given two weeks notice for a layoff. I have been at my present job for a little more than fourteen months. I was on EI for less than six months before that. My previous job paid well so my EI benefits were pretty livable. My present job pays "less".
My question is: for our part of Canada does anyone know where EI draws the line with regards to "a livable wage". Benefits will vary depending on what part of a Canada you are in relative to the cost of living and such.
I'm a little worried because I'm not able to keep my head above water on what I'm making at my job. So if EI is going to pay 75% of "not enough" then I'm in a bit of trouble.
If anyone has been in a similar situation and is willing to comment that would be welcome. PM if you don't want to post.
