Zak Vescera just wrapped up a stint at The Tyee as its labour reporter, and last August he launched a series focused on the housing and working conditions of BC's migrant farm workers. Here's a link to the first article in the series.

The series was deeply reported, and went beyond specific allegations to look at the value of seasonal farm worker programs to BC's ag sector, their structure, and their oversight and enforcement.

Zak joined me on the podcast to talk about his findings.

Zak has just started a new gig at the Investigative Journalism Foundation.
