The Changing EI Story - PSAC Jeannie Baldwin

It's an ironic twist on the changing EI story. The workers who are implementing the changes are feeling caught between their jobs and the complaints they're hearing over the system. The Public Service Alliance of Canada represents federal government employees.

Angela Walker reached Jeannie Baldwin - the regional vice president of PSAC in the Atlantic Region to find out how her members are feeling.
