EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/25/14 -- Problems with the Temporary Foreign Worker program are not limited to the food service industry.
At a press conference at 11 a.m. on Friday, April 25, the Alberta Federation of Labour will unveil research showing that hundreds of Labour Market Opinions - which are required for employers to bring in Temporary Foreign Workers - have been issued in direct contravention of the rules of the program.
"There is a clear pattern to this government's handling of the Temporary Foreign Worker program," Alberta Federation of Labour president Gil McGowan said. "They're bending, breaking, circumventing and ignoring the rules they set up to prevent abuse. And because of that, employers in all kinds of sectors are using the program to drive down wages across the country and throughout the economy."
What: New research shows problems with TFW program pervasive across many sectors of the economy When: 11:00 a.m., Friday, April 25, 2014 Where: Alberta Federation of Labour offices, #300, 10408-124 Street Who: Alberta Federation of Labour (AFL) President Gil McGowan
