Magazine created to assist migrant farm workers

Helping migrant farm workers deal with the culture shock of working in Canada is the focus of a magazine published by a former employee of the Mexican consulate in Toronto. According to a story carried by CBC News Windsor, Atoctli, is a magazine in both Spanish and English and also available online. The publisher is Margarita Caropresi.
 "The idea is to serve the worker. But when we help them, we help the farmer," Caropresi said.
There are approximately 4,000 migrant workers in Windsor-Essex and the contents of the magazine aims to educate them about health and safety, their rights and paperwork, and about how farmer employers can get along with them.
