Canadians are Hiring--From Mexico

Canadian recruiters are going to Mexico to find job candidates who will work in construction, hotel and meatpacking jobs.

The Canadian migrant-worker program was originally started to fill shortages in agriculture, according to the Associated Press, but has now expanded to other industries where there’s a need. Mexican employees work from six to eight weeks and are guaranteed a minimum wage, 40-hour week and free housing, according to the AP.

The Mexican government also regulates the program; employees must be at least 25 years old, for example.

President Bush has proposed a similar program for the United States. Some Mexicans are already allowed to work in U.S. agriculture jobs, though employers would like the program expanded.
