No more Injustice and Oppression against Migrants!
Would you be willing to waive your human rights to get a job that most Canadians don’t want?
Guatemalan migrants talk about the Temporary
Before they’re allowed to make our food, Guatemalan migrant workers have to sign a contract that orders them to:
“During your stay in Canada, you should only do the activities you are assigned to and should not distract yourself with any group or association”
“Reasons to exclude you from the program that will force you to pay your plane ticket: alcoholism, theft, lack of respect and sexual relations”
“Upon arrival at the farm, the employer will keep your passport for the duration of your stay in Canada”
“Use deodorant before the flight and every day you stay in Canada”
“Beware of having relations with women”
“In case you needed to go back to Guatemala before ending your contract, you will have to prove that you have a good reason. Even then, the employer can choose whether to hire you the next season”
“You should keep your hair short to avoid lice”
