I hear you about EI though, I've paid thousands in and have never been able to squeeze a dime back out when I've needed it. They drown you in paper work, cards and automated phone systems. I don't mind paying tax but EI is just a total burn it seems.
Some jobs are ineligible for EI, no matter how much you pay, such as teaching. My dad was a teacher for over 30 years and paid EI for everyone of them. Had he gotten laid off he would not have been able to collect a penny from EI. I think unless your job qualifies you you shouldn't have to pay.
