The prime minister’s facing pressure to improve monitoring on the treatment of workers owned by Canadian investors there.
Owned by Canadian investors there. Owned.
I don’t know how to break it to the writers and editors at the Globe, but investors don’t own workers. Lords and barons don’t have villeins working their fields anymore, and don’t collect inheritence taxes from peasant children when their parents die (look it up). Workers should be free to choose between employers, and to refuse such things as needlessly dangerous work without fear of being killed. Workers should be allowed to organize, if they want, to bargain for better compensation and conditions, without fear of being killed. We don’t fucking own workers anymore.
