1-Describing the issue and explaining why is important to resolved Search for a better future has been always the dream of many migrant workers, a dream that most cases is disguised as a signal for exploitation. This is a close-heart issue for many seasonal farmers workers where unscrupulous people seek for individuals that are unaware that their temporary foreign worker permit does not give them the opportunity overstay or to gain other status while in Canada. Unfortunately this issue has become a popular method of human exploitation, where many people had paid a hefty price due to the misinformation and the abuse of power. However, this was not the case for a small group of mushrooms workers as described more in detail “Migrant workers victorious in legal battle against recruiter”by The Start Newspaper by Nicholas Keung, March 7, 2019. In which migrant workers came out victorious from a legal fight with their recruiter. This has been an issue that is under the loop of Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada. Canadians employers and temporary foreign workers are encouraged to report to the Government of Canada any abuse or misuse of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. In article published in The Canadian Press, posted on July 30, 2017 with the title of “Workers, advocates call for changes to temporary foreign worker program”is stated that the federal government acknowledge the need for action in the temporary worker program including increasing the numbers of inspections and making sure workers and employers understand their rights and obligations. More than one year has passed and the problem with temporary foreign workers is prevalent. This issue not only affects the migrant workers, also affect the reputation of the Seasonal Agricultural Work Program, the temporary foreign worker program, the government and the whole country.
2-What has been done to address this particular issue. In the Article by Nicholas states that Lily Miranda acted not only as a recruiter but also as a “Ghost consultant”providing migrant workers with false immigration services without having a license. This illegal scheme quickly filled her pockets since many of these migrant workers did not have the proper understanding of the Immigration laws and paid her for immigration services. It took eight migrants worker complains to the Toronto Court to find Lily responsible for breaching the law, especially Section 91 of the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act where she charged for a service to which she was not qualify to offer. She was later order to pay more than $40,000 to the plaintiffs, a small retribution the damages she has caused to these hard working individuals. This was seeing for many as a huge victory where migrant workers were David defeating Goliath against all odds.
