A group of us has been protesting the TFW program for a month or so, we staged a protest at the Edmonton legislature on Dec 5, and the 20th. The temporary foreign worker program allows companies to import workers, pay them 15% less than the required wage for Canadians, and there is no guarantee of citizenship later on. They don't even have to advertise for Canadians first! I know several people who have been laid off, while TFW's take their place. The employer usually houses them, and allows them to pay his/her mortgage on a rental house, while they pay them peanuts. We aren't against foreign workers, we are against this bill that will not help our jobs.. we have plenty of Canadians needing employment! Here's a few links to more info about the program.. http://thetyee.ca/News/2013/12/16/Oil-Patch-Workers-Replaced/ https://www.change.org/en-CA/petiti...uses-of-the-temporary-foreign-workers-program Have a public facebook group up also https://www.facebook.com/canadianemploymentfirst Anybody else besides me think this program is crazy?? I can't see how its going to help any of us!!!
