Times of great need spur needed change.

When people lose their job, EI is supposed to help them support themselves while they find more work.  When low income workers who can barely support themselves on a full time income lose their job, it might not even cover rent. These are the people who rely on EI the most.

We should tie EI payments to the cost of living in a region, not an unemployed person's previous income.  It costs the same for everyone to survive.
