“Canadian Supreme Court to Rule If Farmworkers Are Human Beings . . . or ‘Disposable Tools'”

Human rights, including the right of workers to form trade unions, to strike, and to bargain collectively with employers, are universal and indivisible rights which inhere in all human beings by virtue of their humanity.

The Liberal Party government of the Canadian province of Ontario, however, is challenging this notion by calling on the Supreme Court of Canada to rule whether farmworkers are in fact human beings or part-time, precarious humans who abandon their humanity when they are working.
