Migrante hits Canada’s ‘oppressive’ revised worker program

Date

2016

Abstract

A FILIPINO alliance of migrant rights advocates slammed the Canadian government’s revised temporary foreign workers program (TFWP), calling it “exploitative,” “oppressive” and supposedly had no regard for the welfare of migrant workers.
Migrante Canada said the reviewed TFWP report was an imbalance between business interests and the well-being of the workforce, which it said was being treated as “commodities to be manipulated, used up, and thrown away.”
“The fact is clear from the report: government refuses to see migrant workers as human beings who were spewed out from small neo-liberal-policy-restricted economic systems and catapulted to work in larger and more “managed” and totally neo-liberal economic systems, like that of Canada,” the group said in a statement.
