The Agriculture Workers Alliance said the death of a migrant worker in an incident on an eastern Ontario farm on Monday is the 13th in the province this year.
The Ministry of Labour is investigating the death of the 38-year-old Mexican worker who was fatally injured at an orchard operation in Prince Edward County.
The worker was attaching a water tank to a tractor when the attachment fell, trapping him between it and the tractor. Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful.So another disposable worker from some under-developed country died in an agricultural field somewhere in Ontario. Big loss! All we have to do is pluck another one from the third-world and problem solved.
Isn't that what the temporary foreign worker program is all about; to bring in cheap, disposable labour from the third-world so employers can avoid offering a livable wage and safe working conditions to attract a domestic workforce?
This is what it's all about and we should expect events like this to happen so how is this even news?
