    Temporary Labour or Disposable Workers? - by TIM MURPHY, The Dominion, Canada
    "There are presently more TFWs [Temporary Foreign Workers] entering the province each year than there are permanent immigrants," says Foster. "The entire strategy of the government has shifted away from bringing people to Alberta to allow them to have the full rights of citizenship and become members of our communities.

    "They've now shifted it to say we want a revolving door of cattle to do a bunch of work and ship them back home again. They [the oil companies] have found that if you increase supply by bringing in a pool of workers from outside the country who are prepared to work for less and without benefits--you artificially suppress wages."
