Who is farming the food we eat? 'Next time I bite into what God scrumptiously provides, I'll do so with a side order of guilt.'.(Canada)
Jean Smith Cavalluzzo
I'm one of those Canadians who "lives to eat."
But, next time I bite into what God scrumptiously provides, I'll do so with a side order of guilt. So will many attendees at the Labour Studies event held at Brock University on January 29th to discuss migrant farm workers rights in Ontario.
Chris Ramsaroop, a migrant worker advocate with Justicia 4 Migrant Workers, Dr. Kerry Preibisch, from the University of Guelph, and Paul Cavalluzzo, counsel to the United Food and Commercial Workers, Union spoke about their work, research and legal challenges on behalf of migrant farm workers.
Every year, approximately 18,000 migrant farm workers from Mexico and the Caribbean arrive in Canada to work in the agricultural industry. More than 15,000 come to Ontario to work in the fields, orchards, greenhouses, and factory farms doing packaging, and canning and working with livestock in large
