Serious Concerns in South Asian Community As Conservatives Launch 2-Tier Labor Laws

Temporary Foreign workers are often treated as second class citizens:  Come to our land, work hard, and leave – without any benefits or the ability to put down roots.  Today, the Harper Conservative government has made it official…  Temporary foreign workers – often members of minority communities (including the South Asian diaspora) – can now be paid less for work of equal value than Canadian citizens.

The Indus Global Policy Institute will be front-and-center in the battle to repeal this discriminatory law that ignores human rights guidelines.

The Toronto Star has a very good write-up about this new law – a link is available via this blog:
