Abstract:

"Canada is experiencing a major demographic shift, with two-thirds of the population in major cities predicted to belong to racialized groups, particularly Asian newcomers, by 2031. But how are these immigrants faring in this new Canada? Employing the International Labour Organization's concept of "basic security" and the voices of immigrants themselves, Asian Immigrants in "Two Canadas" demonstrates that their security -- such as work, job, employment, and voice and representation -- has been compromised in multi-dimensional ways. Changes to immigration policy and the neoliberal restructuring of the Employment Standards Act in British Columbia have led to further marginalization within the labour market and the creation of deregulated and hazardous workplaces -- resulting in the emergence of "two Canadas" within the Canadian welfare state. Representing a diverse group of immigrants, this book demonstrates a shared experience of precariousness and insecurity -- an experience that has led to a broad- based alliance of Asian immigrant workers aimed at addressing workplace security and rights."--Publisher's website.
