We get pretty high and mighty when we hear about sweat shops in far away places that take advantage of poverty stricken people and hire them and make them work under horrendus conditions for miniscule wages.
What if you knew that there are sweat shops in Toronto that operate similarly?
Let us say that you have befriended someone from India who is a recent immigrant. And you learn that they waited for a long time to get a job. FInally they land a job, but you discover that it is a place that pays only $5 an hour, and these people work 12 hours a day, 6 days a week. You become aware that these companies are defrauding the government as well.
And you know that if you report them, hundreds of South Asians will be out of a job and bearing even more difficult hardships until they find a decent job, which is unlikely to happen in this climate.
What would you do?
This is happening in Toronto. I wodner how widespread this practice is.
I do not know the name of said company or their location, so I cannot really blow the whistle.
