Mr. Chair, the problem is that workers cannot go off the benefit on Monday and go on to the wage subsidy on Tuesday. They are separated by months. In other words, there will be full months during which workers are effectively banned from doing three-quarters of the work they would normally do, because they would lose the wage subsidy if they did.
We would ask the government to consider gently phasing out the emergency benefit to, say, 30¢ on the dollar, so that people are always better off working than they otherwise would be.
Does anything in today's bill ban businesses receiving the wage subsidy from paying executive bonuses, share buybacks or to boost dividends during the period for which they received that subsidy?
