About 30,000 migrant farm workers come to Canada every year through this program with the greatest number leaving from Mexico and lending in Ontario. The purpose of migrant workers is to help fill short-term labour shortages, but many migrant workers return every year. Migrant farm workers in Canada are becoming a permanent part of many rural areas. Agricultural migration in particular is far from temporary in Ontario. The migrant farm workers in Ottawa help grow Canada’s farm products under poor working condition, earning the provincial minimum wage, also called “prevailing” wage set by Ottawa.
This program is a reminder of how unsuccessful the nation has been in finding ideal solutions to the problems of today’s childhood welfare systems. Up until the Orphan Train movement, orphans “mingled with those who had been categorized rightly or wrongly, as mentally ill, delinquent, or senile” (Berthoff as sited by Jansson, 2009, p. 99). While nineteenth century culture may be very different than it is today, fixing the child welfare system still has many of the same problems and difficulties that it once did. Despite more than a decade of intended reform, the nation's foster care system is still overcrowded and full of problems, as many children are being placed in multiple homes and being separated from their siblings. According to online statistics from “The National Resource Center for Permanency and Family

Then, the soaked corn moves onto the refinery (employing eighty employees), where the soggy corn is processed into fructose syrup.

These numbers are unacceptable for a first world, developed and wealthy country; but with rising living costs and the government making cut backs, these figures are set to rise further (Sinead O’Shea, 19/01/13). When people think of the term poverty, they tend to think of third world countries; malnourished children growing up in a village with no clean water available for miles, with disease and infection rife. Poverty is actually measured against the typical living standards of a society (P Townsend, 1979) and a number of things contributing; lack of money, material possessions, food, poor education and substandard living conditions. The causes of child poverty vary so much, usually determined by the parent’s situation which is not always their fault. 62% of children growing up in poverty are in households where at least one of person works, so having a job is still not a direct route out of poverty (Child Poverty Map of the UK, March 2011).

Pemsah’s fields produced 34,300 sacks of corn by the end of the year, and after taxes and expenses, he was left with 13,557 sacks.

My grandfather makes extra money by taming horses and my grandmother by going around the town selling homemade cheese. With that being said my mom says her child hood was every tough.
