9:45 am
it covers their application for their work permit in accommodation costs which it's tied to. it's a question about reprieve and things aren't paid legal these workers are alleging that they were charged there is no way no no no no there's no such thing as a recruiting no no one said the word recruitment feat and number two there are costs as mr miller's indicated. here for airplane travel there is an application fee debate that's been paid to get a ration of thinkers in corners and in need not in this instance but and it's important with the employer would not be are you sure you didn't pay the airplane fare in this case. there's going to be an awful. if you go for. choose me.

9:47 am
we nearly had wanting. this morning what because next. most milan found out if. i can any. jet is on my get the the me because you get that at the nasdaq who doesn't but. last but. when i wanted to next need to go on effective again in the mean anything because i never meant to. give the afghan war we can begin with a thought of it. there are hundreds of valley women who came last night right after they finished at work and then were notified formally by the
9:48 am
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 club the up the rate there are two calls he didn't answer call again and oh yea. or you know i don't right. ok i can't can really hear the tape. oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh you vote you know. what now boom boom was
9:49 am
we apply for an extension for everybody's term and we're also in. work permit came back here didn't accept. what this means is we have to arts. thank you reapply. one more time sixty ninety days to reply. for ninety days you can. order the other our action if you go back to them to be sure. we can reply it's an option if you want to do that the problem is related if you know they were going to. help i know who. i don't know who that struck me for your money. what's your feeling where you live what you know whether their. home was the only. thing they. didn't have is now
9:50 am
a city of three hundred dollars they can refuse again i don't know. if one of the bad guys get the point if it's just a process. and we can arrange that whenever you want. ok but you have to make a decision sure going. so one should think about to talk to girls and we can discuss this with the hood over 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 found leaves 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
9:51 am
somewhere and then the immigration picks you want then i can't do anything. they have been tricked into illegality not just force they've been tricked into illegality your employer tells you that it's ok that you're fine don't worry because don't worry and meanwhile the employer knows very well that the papers that are necessary. to ensure your status hasn't even been. absent from files that i think about the steps in the federal government has not provided any support centers any places where my coworkers can go and see 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 and the government hasn't thought about it i think their vulnerability is
9:52 am
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 all through this program. and you're the employer did not apply to reducing the status and met one and that is that the beginning of that yes and. 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 who has done a similar lawsuit and there were sixty temporary for endings in british columbia
9:53 am
who were hearing agency fees they were not getting paid for over time. they settled they got back a lot of. their other cases that area of theirs but this will be one of the first ones for people were angry. when i. got a long story but it's one story. you know and the gunmen were glad to go it's the only thing to. do with the little. that you're going to do going to the minimum i'm going to do and that my boat is getting going but it doesn't so when i. look at the.

9:59 am
