Election Reality check

Date and time

2019.10.26, 11:51 AM

Description

With the election recently over, politics are bound to come up around the dinner table, and immigration may be high on the agenda. Don’t shy away from hard conversations – talk about the people and the labour behind the food on your table, and about showing thanks for migrant workers through your solidarity. Here are five points to raise:
1) The food system is reliant on migrant labour
2) Migrant farm work is indentured labour
3) Working conditions are unhealthy and dangerous
4) Migrant worker housing is employer-controlled and substandard
5) We need an overhaul of our food systems
