The harsh reality of being a Migrant worker often goes unnoticed. In a world of hyper-consumption, many people often forget where their goods, services, and food come from and they are typically unaware of the environments in which these products are created. In an attempt to inform Canadians about these realities, a group of seven young people got together with the aim of documenting the tough conditions under which our food products are harvested.
Each person chose one issue to investigate. Upon completing their investigation, the youth wrote an article about the events that they witnessed. The result is S.A.M.E's newest publication, “Reality Check: The Life of a Migrant Worker,” which depicts the hardships faced by migrant workers in Southern Ontario. The report covers issues such as living and working conditions, community integration and acceptance, separation from family, and other topics. It tells the story exactly as the seven young people experienced it, and continues the S.A.M.E mantra of empowering youth to educate their peers.
