We have lots of Mexicans working on farms in the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and also out West particularly in BC

There is a government program though not sure what it is called that allows for this Often see them heading home when we fly down in Nov . There have been a few unscrupulous types who have taken advantage of the program with workers living in squalid conditions and being charged most of their wages for housing etc. Quite a few articles being written about it. Read something recently that said changes were underway which would at least require contractors, farmers etc to pay them the minimum hourly wage.

As an aside one of my buddies who lives in the Niagara on the Lake area has one of them work his lawn and garden on his day off (sunday). A number of his friends also do this . I suspect he and others clear more on Sunday than they do through the rest of the week . Given they are all well off retirees I know they are paid more than the minimum hourly wage for their Sunday work
