Piecing together the labour puzzle

Alberta Construction Magazine
“The first people in line for temporary foreign workers were the non-union construction employers. They said they couldn’t find qualified tradespeople, but what they really couldn’t find was people who would be willing to work for their sub-standard wages and working conditions. Instead of tapping into the pool of domestic unionized tradespeople, these employers are going directly to temporary foreign workers from overseas.”
