One of the most disgraceful aspects of Canadian labour policy has come under the spotlight after Canadian banking giant RBC recently sacked 45 workers within their information technology (IT) division, outsourcing those jobs to lower-waged workers from India. What was supposed to be a minor shuffling of jobs has, instead, become a raging scandal. Ostensibly meant to help fill labour shortages in Canada, the Temporary Foreign Worker Program, in reality, is an opening for the bosses to further push down wages for all workers, in addition to massively exploiting foreign workers who are not subject to the same labour laws as their Canadian counterparts.
