A Nigerian woman living in Canada and working as a job placement officer has created a heated debate by claiming that many immigrants of various nationalities, including Nigerians, are broke because they lack appropriate work ethics, which means they are not working hard enough.
The young woman’s divisive remarks have stirred debate on the difficulties that immigrants experience in integrating into North American workforces.
The immigration job placement officer, whose identity was not revealed in the video, claimed to have spoken with thousands of immigrants and their associates.
Based on these exchanges, she came to the conclusion that many immigrants are hampered by a perceived unwillingness to put in the necessary effort, resulting in financial difficulties.
According to her, a pivotal anecdote from an individual who expressed an inability to hold down two jobs as a personal support worker (PSW), earning $28 per hour, served as an illustration of the broader issue.
She used this instance to reinforce her claim that laziness is at the core of financial challenges faced by immigrants, labeling it as an “excuse” to avoid diligently pursuing employment opportunities.
She asserted that immigrants without professional roles in Canada must exert twice the effort to secure a stable livelihood.
Addressing the dynamics of the Canadian job market, the woman emphasized that her assertions were grounded in her observations, indicating that her close associate, who solely works as a PSW, managed to acquire a property valued at over $700,000 in Ottawa. She uses this as evidence that only lazy people complain about not having money in Canada.
