Father's Day campaign tugs at heartstrings, asks to fight for migrant workers' rights

Date and time

2020.06.21, all-day

Description

Thousands of dads in British Columbia will spend Father’s Day far away from their children as they tend and harvest local food crops, typically for minimum wage.

To mark the day, migrant workers and their families have posted photos of themselves on social media platforms holding signs asking Canadians to support their fight for more rights.
