Rising Up: The Fight for Living Wage Work in Canada.
Monday, March 29, 2021. 13:00-15:00 (EST) via Zoom.
Canada has one of the highest rates of low-wage work among advanced industrial economies. In a labour market characterized by the ongoing fallout from COVID-19, deepening income inequality, increasingly uncertain job tenure, and weakened union representation, the living wage movement offers a response. Contributors to this collection of essays examine union- and community-based approaches to organizing in marginalized communities, the role of social reproduction, migrant labour, and media (mis)representations, among other key topics.
