Ban all temp agencies and their labour exploitation
Ban all temporary employment agencies in Canada, as they too often exploit workers and skim wages. They are a parasitic and completely unnecessary middleman. Canadians should be hired directly by employers.
Why is this important?
Work in Canada is precarious and extremely unstable, particularly for young people. The rise and prominence of employment agencies in the 21st century has played a major role in this precariousness and degradation of work, wages and benefits. Temp agencies profit from the labour of workers by being unnecessary middlemen. Temp agencies are far too prominent in the labour market and were not needed in the past, and are not needed now or in the future. Employers need to hire workers directly and allow employees the full benefits and wages for their labour.
