Frontier College

Canada actively imports migrant labour from Mexico to work as farm workers. Not immigrants, but migrants, half the time in Canada but with no rights as citizens. These cheap, abundant, expendable men and women are pressured by racist farmers to work under dangerous conditions, forego proper pesticide protection, at an insane pase, with vocalized threats of being fired hanging over them constantly. Myself and two labourer-teachers, lived and worked with migrant workers and taught ESL lessons in the evenings. Niagara-on-the-lake, ON, sumer 2003.

Para bailer la bamba!!! Si necessita mucho de gracia!
