The experience of interprovincial migrant workers

Those looking for a bit of holiday reading may find this article from the Huffington Post interesting. We often hear about the experiences of international migrant workers in Canada. Less common is coverage of Canadians who commute across the country for work.

The Huffington Post has written a detailed look of the lives of interprovincial migrants who commute from New Brunswick to Alberta and Saskatchewan. The article also examines the impact of commuting on their communities and discusses the options available to these workers if they decide to no longer commute.

Overall, a very interesting piece about the human side of migrant work.
