On Sunday August 23, the Caregivers’ Action Centre gave a presentation to the Indonesian community of Caregivers on the rights of migrant workers, and the mass rejection of LMIAs.
The day was facilitated in conjunction with Betty Wahyuningsih, a Caregiver and labour organizer who is active in the Indonesian community.
The immigration minister Chris Alexander’s “overhaul” of the program was deceivingly promoted as changes that would better protect Caregivers and facilitated faster family reunification. However, the changes to the Caregiver Program clearly have NOT improved the lives of Caregivers. The massive rejection of LMIAs is making it difficult for Caregivers to find jobs, which makes it extremely difficult to complete the 3900 hours required to qualify for permanent resident status
We at the Caregivers’ Action Centre reject the discriminatory rejection of LMIAs! Caregivers and all Migrant Workers deserve permanent resident status upon arrival!
