While the white paper on un- employment insurance was re- leased by Labor Minister Brycc Mackasey in June, the propos- als for reform of social security are not expected to become pub- lic until after Parliament re- sumes Del. 5. Mr. Stein told the committee Mr. Mackasey's proposals could result in considerably liigher costs for unemployment insur- ance. Employers were concerned, he said, that new benefit rales, combined with supplementary h e n e f i t s already negotiated within (he industry and with al- lowable part-time earnings, would enable some workers to obtain an income of 3 week. The program, he said, "will undermine the incentive lo seek employment." He was also critical of propos als to include supplementary unemployment benefits for workers on sick or maternity leave. Such a program, he said, should he part of the social se- curity reform. ise QF.G' CANADIAN 1YHISKY WASHINGTON (AF) Uniled Slates living costs rose two-tenths of one per cent in August for the smallest monthly rise in 20 months, the govern- ment reported Wednesday.
