Words from a migrant worker

We live off the accumulated social capital bequeathed to us by previous generations. Let us not delude ourselves with the thinking that "we worked for what we have". None of us could possibly pay for our children's education, the legal framework, the social services, the physical infrastructure, the medical services, etc.
From our very privileged perch as citizens and permanent residents there are so many  things we can do to reciprocate, to help out, to contribute to future generations. Working with migrant workers is just one of them.
Recorded Nov 15th, University Centre, University of Guelph.
