August 2014: "Refugees and seasonal workers"

For refugees, forced to leave their homes because of violence, and seasonal workers: that they be welcomed with generosity and that their rights are respected.

Social conscience:

From early spring to late September every year, Quebec receives about 4,500 workers from Mexico and Guatemala to work on 350 farm, on a temporary basis. They work mainly in Montérégie and Centre du Québec. They often come to do the labour that by Quebeckers workers shun. Although laws govern the work of seasonal immigrants, employers do not always provide the best working conditions. How as Christian men and women can we educate ourselves about immigrant workers’ fate?

Our faith response:

 As believers, we are called to ask ourselves if farm workers who come to us during spring and summer have decent working conditions. The social doctrine of the Church proposes: "The institutions of the host country must carefully resist the temptation to exploit foreign labor, depriving people of the rights guaranteed to nationals which must be provided to all without discrimination. Immigration can be a resource rather than an obstacle to development." As Christian communities do we instinctively think of unity in diversity and consider our immigrants as different yet complementary when we welcome them? How can we show more care in welcoming migrants and seasonal workers?

 

Reflection:

Sunday, August 3, 2014: I will pay attention to the media to see what is said about seasonal immigrant workers. I will inquire if we have seasonal workers in our community.

Sunday, August 10, 2014: I will grow in my awareness of the working conditions and living standards of seasonal immigrant workers.

Sunday, August 17, 2014: Do I welcome the seasonal worker as a brother or sister who wants to build the Kingdom of God with me?

Sunday, August 24, 2014: I will endeavour to see immigrant seasonal workers as a resource, allowing me to access local products.

Sunday, August 31, 2014: I pray for seasonal workers who are away from their families and their country.
