Migrant workers took to the streets in protest for their cause today and marched to the scene of the crime at the Pulse, a seven-story, 74-unit condo complex on West Broadway and Maple Street. The workers had been contracted to work on the upscale condo development and say they are still owed $60K in wages.
Fifty workers and supporters wore white balaclavas and shirts emblazoned with messages denouncing Bastion Development Corporation and its contractor HDM Hudson Enterprises. The workers are claiming non-payment of wages owed to 17 workers, not following basic labour laws, and failing to produce proper employee records.
Some workers also allege they were falsely told by HDM Hudson that they would receive documentation that would allow them to stay in Canada following the condo project.
