Breaking news from Down Under: Australian crew have been booted off an Australian-flagged tanker that was engaged in coastal trade in home waters — so the owner could use cheap foreign crew who make as little as $2 an hour.
Until today, crew were told the ship was going to Singapore for cleaning of the hull. Now they’ve learned it’s the crew that will be cleaned out.
This is exactly what we’re afraid is coming to Canada.
Take a minute and read the story of what’s going on tonight with this crew. The details are appalling.
