Advocates say workers are under an “apartheid system” which strips them of any power and fails to protect them.

    While I appreciate how the CBC likes to be inflammatory in their reporting, why don't they also report on the thousands of migrant workers who are assisted by their employers to obtain their permanent residency and become Canadian citizens? Maple Leaf Foods is a good example of best in class when it comes to dealing with temporary foreign workers and has hundreds of these examples.

    While I agree that the employer who brings in the migrant workers should have total responsibility for carrying appropriate liability and health insurance for their workers, Canadian taxpayers should not be on the hook for any of it, and they (worker) should NOT be part of our Worker's Compensation system, period!
