Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the major increase over the original 10 percent subsidy plan.

Trudeau said it became clear they needed to do much more.

The prime minister said it means people will continue to be paid even though their employer has had to slow down or stop its operations because of COVID-19. He said he hopes employers who are being pushed to lay off workers will think again.
