More evidence of problems with Temporary Foreign Worker Program

A Calgary Herald article revealed more problems with how the Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP) is operating. Access to information requests revealed that many companies are being allowed to only pay temporary foreign workers minimum wage. This contradicts a requirement of the program that workers be paid at or near market rates. Past abuses have raised fears that the TFWP is being used to drive down wages rather than address genuine labour shortages and this article will add to that concern.
