HndsmKansan saidOn the surface it sounds ridiculous.... my question, is there any basis for it whatsoever? Is it as assinine as it sounds?
If it had been used correctly, for jobs that Canadian workers had no skill sets for, there would be nothing ridiculous. However, it's been used to bring in workers in scores of entry level jobs that young people here need.
That, and they can pay them 15% less than the going wage (which as it turns out is part of the abuse of 'doesn't have the skillsets')
What's even funnier is the numbers of applicants turned down for jobs because they are 'overqualified'. Later some of those jobs have gone to foreign temp workers because there is 'a lack of skill sets'.
btw, you might want to do a little researching to find out how widespread this is in the US as well.
The last time I looked it up, there were about 1 million guest workers in the US.
