Rise Up! Temporary Foreign Worker Moratorium

There are currently 70,000 Temporary Foreign Workers in Alberta that work in various sectors, including the food industry. On April 24, the federal government announced a moratorium on temporary foreign workers in the food industry. On this episode of Rise Up!, we interview Marco Luciano, Secretary General of Migrante Canada and a coordinator of the Alberta Chapter, to further discuss the moratorium placed on temporary foreign workers in the food industry and future directions. 

In addition, check out this link that petitions Minister Jason Kenney to exclude temporary foreign workers who are already in Canada from the moratorium.
