OTTAWA (CP) The Cana- dian Labor Congress today jeered at and praised the gov- ernment in a wide-ranging an- nual hrief to cabinet that touched on unemployment, min- imum wages and a national energy policy. In a 62-page memorandum, the 1.8-million-meniber congress rapped Ihe government for fail- ing to introduce policies to solve unemployment, which the CIC said was created largely by anti-inflationary programs. The brief also criticized the government crackdown on al- eged unemployment insurance cheaters, saying innocent unem- ployed might suffer. Tiie government got some re- irved praise for'resisting price nd wage controls, reducing ixes for those in lower income ;vels and accepting the genera rinciplc of a guaranteed an, ual income. But, the brief said, vital na onal policies and programs re missing or inadequate.
