The article by Adriana Paz and Chris Ramsaroop is based on a short video clip reported in the mainstream media. We want to ensure rabble readers have the full story.

The issue of supporting Temporary Foreign Workers (TFWs) is at the forefront of the B.C. Federation of Labour's (BCFED) work to ensure that no worker is treated as disposable.
