Grrr. I keep hearing how maritimers in Canada view working seasonal as full-time work. I (from Toronto) never understood that if the government supported you all winter (which here is 7 months) how could you say you are a full time worker. Well I applied for a job claiming to be FULL TIME. Just had the interview and he said that I will get just enough each year to get my stamps. WTF that isn't full-time. So basically work like mad all summer long and be off when the kids are in school. Nope not for me. Besides he blamed all drugs and crime here on "people from away" which if he looked at my funky last name he would know I was one of them. As you can tell I didn't care for this man. So what are your views on seasonal work?

We also pay income tax here too. But I agree I come from a place where it was expected to work year round. Not work long enough to get welfare.

Seasonal work CAN BE full time depending on the hours put in during each season...My ex use to do roofing work which of course was only seasonal but he'd put in a good 12-14 hrs a day and sometimes worked on Sat as well rather than 8 hrs a day only 5 days a week. Fulltime doesnt go on how many days you work..its about the hours you work...and the gov doesnt support you necessarily..you get your pogy which is what you pay into in the first place...
