House of Commons committee urges reform for temporary foreign-worker program
“Joyce Reynolds, executive vice-president for Restaurants Canada, a lobby group that opposed changes to the program made under the Conservatives, said she was pleased with the recommendations. “We felt that the previous government overreacted in terms of the reforms and that the pendulum swung far too far and this committee is finding the important middle ground in terms of meeting the needs of Canadians and employers and foreign workers,” she said.
In contrast, Alberta Federation of Labour president Gil McGowan is furious with the recommendations. He said he believes that the Liberals misled voters by promising a review of the program “with the clear implication that the goal would be to rein in and roll back the program.”
“What we’re seeing with this report is a government intent on making it easier for employers to access guest workers from abroad. From my perspective, this is the worst kind of political bait and switch,” he said.
Mr. McGowan said several of the recommendations remove or limit the requirements for employers to prove that they would look for Canadian workers first.”
The Liberal party of Canada – working to suppress wages by population replacement.
This has nothing to do with your economic well being or boosting overall economic health.
The Liberals will lipstick this pig with “human rights concerns” for foreign workers and call you a racist if you object to their scam, just know that it’s a lie to cover the personal enrichment of their buddies at your expense.
Pay attention to the Alberta Federation of Labour, they put in a yeoman like effort exposing the Temporary Foreign Workers Program scam when this story first broke.
