Waitresses in Saskatchewan lose jobs to foreign workers

Believe it or not, CBC is the one reporting on this.

(And there are 3000 comments.)

Sandy Nelson can’t fight back the tears as she talks about losing her long-term serving job to temporary foreign workers.

“How can that be right, that they’re not Canadians? I’m a Canadian,” said Nelson, 58, who worked at Brothers Classic Grill and Pizza [previously called El Rancho] in Weyburn, Sask., for 28 years.

“How can it be that I’m the one out looking for a job and they’re the ones that are still employed?”

She says that at a meeting a few years back, “the three of them [Brothers personnel] were sitting there and they all said as long as we own this place, you’ll always have a job with us.”
