Migrant Workers’ Rights

Wed, Jan 27, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Our guest presenter is Chris Sorio, the Vice chairperson of Migrante BC. Migrant workers face many difficulties when they go abroad: low wages which barely cover remittances that they send home to help their families, difficult working conditions and unpaid or invisible overtime in addition to emotional suffering and loneliness from family separation.  MWR’s mission is the respect, by national and international agencies, of the rights to liberty, to physical and psychological integrity, and to non-discrimination based on the country of origin — thus of the rights to freely change employers at all times, to receive study/work permits for children/spouse, and to access permanent legal status, of every human being admitted under the status of ‘temporary foreign worker’.
