Voices of workers absent

IN REPORTING on long-overdue pay increases for temporary foreign workers (“Cape businesses squeezed as wages increases,” June 27), the Globe quotes five people: a hotel owner, the cochair of an employers’ coalition, an owner of four restaurants, the president of a recruiting company, and a single union official.

The perspective of actual workers who up until this year were paid under $10 an hour was completely omitted. The Globe showed no interest in what this all means for low-wage workers and their standard of living. It barely even acknowledged that they exist.
