Week 11 Lecture:
Guest Speaker: Chris Ramsaroop, Justice for Migrant Workers
In history, government didnt want to bring in foreign workers (African, South Asian,
Chinese, Japanese)
Was worried that there was interracial marriage
Didnt want to give entitlement for workers no welfare, health care, employment
insurance, pension
Pillars for program: people are tied to one employer, dont have access to permanent
resident status, cannot stand up for your rights (otherwise deported back to country
of origin)
Immigration people coming for eight months but cannot apply for residency
In 2000, we started to talk about the need for gender equity give women the
opportunity to come to work
Canada now has more temporary foreign workers than permanent residents
Foreign workers especially from Caribbean and Philippine work in fast food
restaurants
Temporary foreign workers can come to Canada to work for four years and then not
work for four years
If you dont have genuine work permit, they send you home
If you have a bad boss, they will abandon the bad boss but he will still rent workers
and bring in contract workers
Workers compensation, workers health and safety violations, and deportation (fear
of leaving Canada and never coming back again), immigration, housing
Workers bargain for work compensation
In Ontario, we have to protect the family farm (Good things grow in Ontario)
oIf we have unions, it will destroy the idea of the farm
oBecause of the precarious need of the crops itself they have to be perishable
crops
Illegal to form unions
Cannot apply for permanent residency
Housing laws in Canada exempt agricultural dwelling
Health and safety deportation
Workers compensation
Curfews working overtime without overtime pay, no women/families allowed
Health care temporary workers have to wait three months to get health care
Is illegal to work elsewhere after you quit job
People find ways to fight back and stand up for their rights, but not always
successful
Workers wouldnt work until they got their masks, and it was harvest season, so
employers got the masks for them, it was just a little thing that made victory
Its not always workers that are wrong

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
