Abstract

Tens of thousands of migrant workers are being forced to pay up to two years of their salary to work in Canada. Their documents are being seized when they arrive here, and they are often finding themselves if worse jobs than they were promised. With entire families back home in debt to pay these fees, many workers are reluctant to complain about bad bosses. This must stop.
