NDP Leader Lorraine Michael (MHA, Signal Hill-Quidi Vidi) believes the provincial government is not actively working to protect temporary foreign workers brought in to the province to work at a variety of low-wage jobs.

 

NDP Critic for Advanced Education and Skills Dale Kirby (MHA, St. John’s North) says it is past time for government to provide an update on the state of skilled trades education in the province.
