dimension. come when the massive grouping of. relatives. or kumar in families where i'm going to get. some will move up into the body but when they do that the. saying not so long time but i'm a get it to be this our mistake when she found in this washer the ramp up in mystery that i'm accustomed to feed me in this and that nest country make my
hair the move got. one when i'm probably rather than. if and then you got document what it took. only see and what to do say that a few well you see then he doesn't need to say you have i don't working permits i am well who didn't miss him. flapping our butts far happened that one thing recently that. we haven't a clue. this image nobody had to have been so disappointed in the. us of a. document it doesn't. look at bucca unless they have already got the money gone up now and. he will get it through being his defeat. our top story this hour three county manner of basically an extraordinary just opening constable saga coulter says the
arrests at the charges that the result of a six month investigation. i can tell you that there my great workers the victims from indonesia. the charges relate to the extortion of money from the workers being employed and we need to. be close but not oh you heard the word exploitation in the church in the english word over there is absolutely no such restriction place through the exclusion she. will be able to do that usually the threat that a bit in a would be distant from other people did not make those threats did not make those threats would not be strange but our clients were by no means trying to send these people. or to revoke their visas or to do it with an actual shortfall if you come over in six thousand two hundred dollars for it to be able number it's their contractually bound to pay it and if we cover here for the covers or up to cushion for their work permit in accommodation costs which it starts to get. into
a question about reprieve and things aren't paid legal these workers are alleging that they were charged now before and no no no no there's no such thing as a recruiting role always or the word recruitment feet and number two there are four causes mr miller is looking for here for airplane travel there is an application fee to beat that would be to get a ration of thinkers in foreigners and in need not in this instance but and it's important with it. the employer did not appear to have your plan for you in this. the world. is going to. meet with the awful. choose me.
i will begin policing of the day in the not must never come on when you're going to dig up another all you have written to block about it do go up but never up a big hundred obvious a new one up and made a mess on the. oh you can buy up that wagon talked about. by garbage madness made it right out about the governor and the rest of the gotta get the classical behind them and get it but they do go they did that by now. a little nasty in the well yeah she. rock.
we nearly had warming. up this morning what because now that unlike. most milan found out if. i can any. jet is on my get the the me get that at a. dozen but. i asked but. when i want to again next week the only effect you have again and you mean anything excellent as a monkey. yeah you can well you can thank you again for that thought while the. there was a whole group of bollywood when he came last night right after they finished at work and then were notified formally by the employer that they were without status
and had been so for two weeks according to the woman the employer said that he had never applied for. the what is called the l m i. so they don't understand that by any apply why would he not tell us back in december when he said he applied. a lot of questions they were also which is very surprising to me is that they're adamant that they wanted to go ahead with the lawsuit and now they can now you call the lawyer and so they had to call the lawyer are they the clock the up the rate there are two calls he didn't answer call again and. how are you running right. ok you can't give me here the tape. oh i'm. going to talk to you both you know the preacher.
who was we applied for an extension for everybody's permit. process. work permit came back here didn't accept. sure what this means is we have to have to. reapply. for time sixty ninety days to require. for ninety days you can. order the other option. if you go back to the beach or. we can reapply it's an option if you want to do that the problem is related if you know they were going. to. i don't know who that struck me for your money. what's your feeling where you live what you know whether there. was. a day or. a shitty or three hundred dollars they can refuse you don't i don't know. but one
of the back i get the point if that's the problem. then we can arrange that whenever you want. ok but you have to make a decision sure going. so one should think about how to grow and we can discuss it this way they do ok so what i would want to know is when did you know about that in iowa and then why didn't you tell us as soon as you knew why did you wait two weeks and then have you work two weeks without status i think not everything is being told i understand that you need to eat you need to pay rent you need to pay medical bills and you have families and children back home so i understand that there is a need for money but i just want you to know that if you decide to work for cash somewhere and then the immigration picks you up then i can't do anything
they have been tricked into illegality not just force they've been tricked into illegality new employer tells you that it's ok that you're fine don't worry because you don't worry and meanwhile the employer knows very well that the papers that are necessary. to ensure status hasn't even been. absent from files that i think that's a subset of the federal government has not provided any support centers any places where my coworkers can go and say what is happening what are my rights so they're really left at the mercy of employers and i think that this is by design i don't think that is just an oversight is a misstep on the government hasn't thought about it i think their vulnerability is constructed this is just one of the groups that we happen to meet they're not
special they're not unique and there are multiple hundreds and hundreds of stories similar stories out there. it's not hard to find it's all around this area and all of us through this program. for our employer did not apply to redo the status and move on and that is not that the acting in the new company and the rest of them i'm down but i think that if. you talk about wanting to sue the green house for overtime dictation. and also for the agency. we have heard or has done a similar lawsuit and there were sixty temporary foreign workers that is in british columbia who were agency thieves they were not getting paid for over time. they
said they got a lot. there are other cases in the area where there are some who are but this will be one of the hardest ones for people working. on that i wanna do my about now when i don't need that money though he got a long story but it's out once already. and the gunmen were glad. it's a clinic thing. you're going to get the democrats you're going to going to be remembered i'm going to do it and that my vote is if you can but it doesn't. look at that it will not be.
such. a don't miss summerson. going to put to i'm done it means you knew they had been in the internet not going to and seven hundred going to the senate. and they'd be singing in don't need to man. even i'm going to give. you. one out of the tunnel. and i would neck and neck that. missing the on. the medal one. well never thought i was on your way. though joe i feel now that i definitely get to. get that done then dizzy need that and then said you doing as

hello there there's definitely going to be a wintery feel to the weather for some of us in australia thanks to this weather system here as it's making its way across the us is turning things a fall wetter and turning things a lot cooler as well say for adelaide instead of around twenty seven degrees we're looking at a maximum temperature just of nineteen there on thursday and it will be quite wet as well the rain will be welcome many of us have had a pretty dry year so far so this rain should give a somewhere between ten and forty millimeters of welcome rain that area of rain continues its way eastwards as we head through friday with staying cool behind it just seventeen in adelaide and around sixty four with melbourne may want to head a bit though it's largely fine and dry for us in new zealand got a little bit of cloud there just flirting with the southwestern coast but it's not really giving us too much in the way of significant rain instead most of us should have a fine unsettled one sixteen degrees there in christchurch dropping to around fifteen
as we head into friday up towards japan though and things are far more active weather wise hey we've got this very intense system that's giving us some heavy rain not only in japan but also in eastern parts of china and the eastern parts of russia in fact on the northern edge there also a fair amount of snow to be had and that's all moving east. citizens unable to vote on represented in washington or members of congress do nothing about. the part of the constituents in their responsibility and that is what's underneath this crisis phone lines visit to the island devastated by hurricane maria and demanding the support of the u.s. government. that isn't in the current mentality responsibility and you know nothing of her good. shelter after the storm on al-jazeera. was
